Preparing a Presentation with EZ-Converter
EZ-Converter is software that runs on a Window computer. You can use EZ-Converter to
convert a file (ppt) created with Microsoft PowerPoint to presentation data that can be played
back using the YP-100’s Viewer feature.
Following conversion the presentation data can be stored on a USB memory device, which
can then be connected to the YP-100 for the presentation.
Note that the conversion process may result in some differences between the original
PowerPoint file and the resulting presentation data.
Presentation Data
The presentation data produced by EZ-Converter consists of presentation (plf) files and
image (jpg) files. When you convert a PowerPoint file that includes 10 pages of data, EZConverter will create 10 image (jpg) files and one presentation (plf) file that is linked to
the image files. The presentation file will contain information about the sequence that the
10 image files should be projected, along with other playback settings.

Playing a Presentation with Viewer
Viewer is an application built into the YP-100 that lets you display image files and play
back movie files that are stored on a USB memory device that is connected to the YP100. Viewer starts up automatically whenever you connect a supported USB memory
device (see “Supported USB Memory Devices” on page 13) to the USB port of the YP100.
To connect a USB memory device to the YP-100
1
Connect the AC adaptor that comes with the YP-100 to the AC adaptor terminal,
and plug the AC adaptor into a power outlet.
z This will cause the YP-100 to turn on automatically.
z This will cause the YP-100’s [POWER] indicator to light green. The YP-100 logo screen
also will be projected by the connected projector.
2
Plug the USB memory device that contains the data you want to project with
Viewer into the USB port of the YP-100.
z Once the YP-100 recognizes the USB memory device, Viewer will start up automatically
and a menu of the files contained on the USB memory device will be projected in the
projection area.
29
Note
z Only files of formats that are recognized by the YP-100 (jpg, jpeg, jpe, bmp, avi,
mp4) appear in the file menu. Note that even if a file appears in the file menu, it
does not mean that the file can be displayed or played back by the YP-100.
z The file menu displays USB memory device contents in the following sequence:
folders, movie files, image files. For details about how to play back a movie file, see
“Using Viewer to Play a Movie” (page 39).
File Menu Operations
When Viewer starts up, it initially projects a menu of files contained on the USB memory
device. There are two different views for the file menu: a thumbnail view and a tree view.
Thumbnail View
Tree View
Thumbnail View
This View shows thumbnails of the image files and movie files contained on the USB
memory device. Folders are shown as icons.
Note
A question mark (?) in place of a thumbnail indicates an image file that cannot be
displayed by Viewer for some reason.

Viewer Troubleshooting
Some folders and/or files are not displayed in the file menu
• All the folders and/or files contained in a folder will not be displayed if there are more
than 999 folders and/or files inside the folder. If this happens, reduce the number of
folders and/or files in the folder.
• Viewer supports up to 10 folder nesting levels on a USB memory device. Anything past
the 10th nested folder is not displayed by Viewer.
How can I get images to appear more quickly?
When you select a BMP image or a large image file recorded with a digital camera on
the Viewer’s image menu, it takes considerable time before the image appears. To ensure
that images appear quickly during your presentation, use EZ-Converter to convert the
images to presentation data. This will cause images to be converted to JPEG images,
which appear on the display more quickly.
I am having a hard time getting the results I want when playing a
slideshow.
• Use EZ-Converter to convert the images you want to use in the slideshow to
presentation data.
• In order to start a slideshow by highlighting an image file in a folder that is not a
presentation data folder, you first need to use the Viewer Setup menu to configure
slideshow settings (Slideshow Display Interval, Slideshow Transition Effect, Image
Switching, Slideshow Repeat).
46
Performing a Presentation Using a Wireless LAN
(Projecting Computer Screen Contents Over a Wireless LAN)
This section explains how to establish a wireless LAN connection between the YP-100 and a
computer and project the computer’s screen contents over the wireless LAN.
Supported Wireless LAN Devices
CASIO YW-2S wireless adapters are required in order to establish a wireless LAN connection
between a computer and the YP-100. The YW-2S package includes two YW-2 USB type
wireless adapters, one for the YP-100 and one for the computer.
Important!
z Note that use of any other wireless adapter besides the YW-2 is not supported.
z Use of the stickers that come with the YW-2 Wireless LAN adapter is not necessary
when you connect a YW-2 to the YP-100.
Computer Requirements
In addition to the “Minimum System Requirements” (page 10), the computer must also
conform to any one of the following in order to establish a wireless LAN connection with
the YP-100.
a. YW-2 wireless adapter plugged into a USB port
b. Built-in wireless LAN function conforming to IEEE 802.11b standard
c. Add-on wireless LAN function (other than YW-2) conforming to IEEE 802.11b standard
All of the explanations in this manual are based on a computer that conforms to “a. YW-2
wireless adapter plugged into a USB port”.
Important!
There is no guarantee that all computers conforming to one of the above conditions will
be able to establish a wireless LAN connection with the YP-100.
47
Preparing the Computer for Wireless LAN Connection
with the YP-100
Before attempting the operations in this section, be sure to prepare the computer by
following the steps below.
If you are using the YW-2 wireless adapter
1
On your computer, install “Wireless Connection” from the CD-ROM that comes
bundled with the YP-100.
z For more information, see “Installing YP-100 Software” (page 10).
2
Connect the YW-2 wireless adapter to your computer’s USB port.
If you are using another wireless LAN adapter (including a computer’s builtin wireless LAN)
1
Make sure that the wireless LAN of the computer (either a built-in wireless LAN
or add-on wireless LAN) conforms to the IEEE 802.11b standard.
2
On your computer, install “Wireless Connection” from the CD-ROM that comes
bundled with the YP-100.
z For more information, see “Installing YP-100 Software” (page 10).

About the YP-100’s Wireless LAN
Wireless Function and Wireless Connection Software
The YP-100 has a built-in function named “Wireless”, which you can use to configure YP100 settings for wireless LAN connection with a computer, and perform YP-100 operations
(such as displaying connection information, switching computers when there are multiple
computers connected over a wireless LAN, etc.) after a connection is established. Wireless
starts up automatically whenever you connect a CASIO YW-2 wireless adapter to the YP100’s USB port.
Wireless Connection is software that runs on a Windows computer. It lets you configure
computer settings for wireless LAN connection with the YP-100, and perform computer
operations (such as sending computer screen contents to the YP-100) after a connection is
established. You can also use Wireless Connection to display the “Web Setup” page for
configuring advanced wireless LAN connection settings (see “Advanced Wireless LAN
Connection Settings” on page 64).
About Connection Profiles
A setup for a wireless LAN connection is called a “connection profile”. There are two types
of connection profiles: “simple connections” and “manual connections”.
The YP-100 comes with a following connection profiles built in. You can use the YP-100’s
Wireless function to switch the current connection profile. Since Wireless Connection is
already equipped with the same Simple Connection 1, 2, and 3 profiles as the Wireless
function, all you need do is select the same profiles with Wireless and Wireless connection
to establish a wireless LAN connection. Note, however, that this is true only when a
CASIO YW-2 wireless adapter is connected to the computer.

Description
These profiles mainly are for establishing a simple
connection between the YP-100 and a single computer with
a CASIO YW-2 wireless adapter. The settings of these
profiles are fixed and cannot be changed.
These profiles mainly are for wireless LAN connection of
multiple computers to the YP-100 at the same time. The
initial default setup of each profile can be used to configure
a wireless LAN connection, or you can modify the settings
of a profile to improve security and save the profile under
a new name.
49
Establishing a Wireless LAN Connection between the
YP-100 and a Computer
The method you should use to establish a connection between the YP-100 and a
computer depends on the type of connection you want to establish. One important
consideration is whether you want to use a Simple Connection or a Manual Connection
profile.
„ One YP-100 unit and One Computer
In this case, connect using Simple Connection. Make sure that the same Simple
Connection profile (Simple Connection 1 or Simple Connection 2, Simple Connection 3) is
selected on both the YP-100 and on the computer.
If there are multiple 1-to-1 wireless LAN connections in the same area, use a different
connection profile (Simple Connection 1, Simple Connection 2, Simple Connection 3) for
each one.
For more information, see “Establishing a Wireless LAN Connection with a Single Computer
Using a Simple Connection” (page 52).
„ One YP-100 unit and Multiple (Up to 4) Computers
Configure this connection using the Manual Connection Ad Hoc Mode. Make sure that all
of the profile contents (except for the IP address) of the YP-100 and the computer are
identical.
For more information, see “Establishing a Wireless LAN Connection with Multiple Computers
Using a Manual Connection” (page 54).
„ Connection over a Wireless Network
Configure this connection using the Manual Connection Access Point Mode (page 80). Note
that technical knowledge about network connections is required to configure a connection
over a wireless network.
For information about configuring settings, see “To create a new computer connection
profile” (page 74). Supplementary information is also available on the CASIO website
(http://world.casio.com/projector/support/en/).
„ Connection Using a Notebook Computers Built-in Wireless LAN
Use Manual Connection for this type of connection. Note that technical knowledge about

Wireless LAN Connection Troubleshooting
Whenever you experience problems with the wireless LAN connection between the YP-100
and the computer, check the following points first.
Check the following on the computer.
• Did you disable “Network Connection” before connecting the YW-2 wireless LAN
adapter to your computer’s USB port?
On the Windows Control Panel, click “Network Connections” (“Network and Dial-up
Connection” in the case of Windows 2000). If you see “Local Area Connection”,
“Wireless Network Connection” or “Network Bridge” on the window that appears, rightclick the icon and then click “Disable”.
• Is a wireless LAN utility other than Wireless Connection (which comes with the
YP-100) running?
If so, shut down the other utility.
Check the following on the YP-100.
• Is the same connection profile selected on the computer and on the YP-100?
Wireless LAN connection is not possible when different connection profiles are selected
on the computer and the YP-100 (such as “Manual Connection 1” on the computer and
“Simple Connection 1” on the YP-100). Make sure the same connection profile is
selected on both.
Also check the following.
• Are the YP-100 and computer too far apart or are they separated by a wall or
other barrier?
Try moving the YP-100 and computer so they are closer to each other.
• Is a microwave oven or a Bluetooth device being used nearby?
Operation of a device that uses the 2.4 GHz frequency band (which is the same
frequency band as the IEEE802.11b wireless standard used by the YP-100) in the
vicinity of the YP-100 can cause radio interference, resulting in a wireless communication
error. Avoid using the nearby microwave oven or Bluetooth device when performing YP100 wireless LAN communication.
If the above countermeasures do not resolve your problem, try the following depending on
the problem you are experiencing.
85
You cannot establish a Manual Connection between the YP-100 and a single
computer or multiple computers.
Except for the IP address setting, all of the settings configured for the YP-100 and the
computer(s) must match in order to establish a Manual Connection. Use the following
procedures to display and check the YP-100 and computer settings. If there are any
differences in the settings, change the settings on the computer(s) so they match. It is
important to remember here, however, that the IP addresses must be different.
To check YP-100 settings
Press the [FUNC] key, confirm that “View Connection Info” is highlighted, and then press
the [ENTER] key.
To check computer settings
1
On the Wireless Connection window, select “Switch Connection Profile” on the
“Connection” menu.
2
On the connection profile switching dialog box that appears, click the “Profile
Name” down arrow button and select the connection profile whose settings you
want to view.
3
Click the [Change Setup] button.
z This will display a dialog box for configuring a new manual connection profile. Use the
dialog box to check the settings and make any changes that are required.
Important!
When establishing wireless LAN connections between the YP-100 and multiple
computers, the YP-100 and each of the computers must have their own unique IP
addresses. For example, you could assign the IP address 192.168.1.100 to the YP-100,
and assign the following IP addresses to the computers: 192.168.1.10, 192.168.1.20,
192.168.1.30, etc.
86
When you establish a wireless LAN connection between the YP-100 and a
computer, it takes a log of time before the contents of the computer
screen is projected.
It can take some time for a wireless LAN connection to be established between the YP100 and computer if any other network connection besides the wireless network connection
used by the YW-2 wireless adapter is enabled on the computer. If this happens, perform
the following steps to disable the other network connections.
1
On the Windows Control Panel, click “Network Connections” (“Network and Dialup Connection” in the case of Windows 2000).
z This will display a “Network Connections” window (“Network and Dial-up Connection”
window).
2
On the window, right click any wireless network connection that is not the one
being used by the YW-2 wireless adapter, and then click “Disable” on the
shortcut menu that appears.
z The wireless network connection used by the YW-2 wireless adapter is the one with the
adapter name “CASIO 802.11b/g Wireless LAN USB Adapter (3887A)”. Disable all
wireless network connections that have any other name.
3
If you see a “Local Area Connection” on the window, right-click its icon and
then click “Disable” on the dialog box that appears.
87
The wireless LAN connection between the YP-100 and computer keeps
dropping.
This can be caused by the following.
• Data communication can slow down and the connection may tend to drop when the YP100 and computer are far from each other (in different rooms, on different floors, etc.)
Move the YP-100 and computer as close together as possible.
• Operation of a device that uses the 2.4 GHz frequency band (which is the same
frequency band as the IEEE802.11b wireless standard used by the YP-100) in the
vicinity of the YP-100 can cause radio interference that results in a wireless
communication error. Avoid using the nearby microwave oven or Bluetooth device when
performing YP-100 wireless LAN communication.
After checking the above two points, select [Exit] on the [Connection] menu of the Wireless
Connection window to exit Wireless Connection, and then restart Wireless Connection.
You cannot display the Web Setup page
The Web Setup page can be displayed only while there is a wireless LAN connection
between the YP-100 and computer. Use a Simple Connection or Manual Connection to
establish a wireless connection between the YP-100 and computer, and then display the
Web Setup page. For more information, see “Web Setup” (page 64).
If the Web Setup page does not appear even through there is a wireless LAN connection
between the YP-100 and computer, check the following points.
• The Web Setup of the YP-100 may be disabled. Use the procedure under “To enable
and disable Web Setup” (page 66) to check the current setting. If it is “Disable”, change
it to “Enable”.
• The browser you are using may be configured to use a proxy server. This can make it
impossible to display the Web Setup page, and so the proxy server settings should be
canceled. See the help and other user documentation for your browser for information
about proxy server settings.
