I only recently ordered a 50g and it hasn't arrived yet, but I've been running a 50g emulator on my iMac via Crossover. Using TextWrangler, I typed in some text, with each line being no more than 18 characters, and then I saved the file as Western (Windows Latin 1), with UNIX line breaks and a *.txt file extension. Dragging and dropping that atop the emulated 50g displayed it onscreen. And due to each line being only 18 characters, all the text can be displayed without horizontal scrolling.

So I would assume that I can just copy these *.txt files to an SD on my iMac, then insert than into the calculator and be able to access it without problem, correct?


If "smaller is better" then what do you 50g users put on your SD cards, and how big are your cards?
