HP-200LX Sync to REX PDA - Bill (Smithville NJ) - 08-10-2018 07:15 PM

Seeing how a reference to the REX PDA came up in the Forum recently got me thinking about when I used to sync the REX with my HP-200LX. Unfortunately I no longer had the files. But thanks to the Internet Wayback Machine I was able to recover what I think was the required files. I no longer have a REX so can't test them out. But I can make them available if anyone here wants to try them.

I have put them on my Dropbox for awhile. The files will be there for at least a few weeks, but won't be there forever. The zip files has a PDF of the original REX SYNC webpage that gives all the instructions.

HP2REX.zip

I would interested in hearing if anyone gives it a try.

Awesome, thanks. I'll have to give this a try, since I have a Rex laying around.

Hi,

I stumbled across my old Rex and my old HP 200 down in my basement.
I would be really happy if I would be able to reactivate it, but it seems i've lost the original CD for the starfish-SW and back at that time I think I was never syncing the HP with the REX, so I never had drivers for that combination.
Is that something you still would be able to provide?
I would be rather happy to receive your stuff and try it out...

Thanks
Jogi

Hi Jogi,

Sorry, I no longer have the files.

Maybe Dave Britten still have it, if he originally downloaded it.

Thanks to you, anyway.
Maybe @Dave is subscribed to the thread and will be able to supply the tools.
I'll watch...

As luck would have it, I found a copy still sitting on my iPhone of all places. Here you go! It's about 290 KB.

I haven't gotten around to digging out my Rex and trying this, so I'm afraid I won't be able to offer much troubleshooting advice.

Thank you very much!
I will give it a try!
