Wanted: Program to open/convert Waltop .top files


I have a new challenge today.
From Aldi, I bought a Medion P82001/MD85925 digital notepad.
A little googling found me this link:

From which I understand that the device is simply a rebranded Waltop tablet device.
A little unscientific examination of the files it produces after a little doodling on the paper pad confirms this, the .top files it produces contain the word 'WALTOP'.

Now, my challenge is to read these files
I found VectorPen but they only offer a demo, and a full version license at $15.
Certainly not a lot of money, but if at all possible I would like to avoid going that way. For one, I do not like Java based applications because of their troublesome nature (large, slow, crashy, won't run properly, requires version XX, take your pick).

I suppose, if all else fails I can plant the Windows-only software that was delivered with the device in a Wine environment.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

I'm a little surprised nobody else stumbles upon this.. niche device perhaps?

I'm going to collect what I find here in this list, order of appearance.. - Newtonscript TOP to SVG converter - Python script to convert TOP to SVG - Modified Python script of previous link to convert TOP to SVG - A site offering free online conversion, among which TOP to SVG - TopScribe, which can convert TOP to SVG and read note files - Eddie's review.. read the comments! - Toptools, also to convert

Will test in course of time.


digital, medion, pen, tablet
