Writing Your Notes on a New Page
By using the ,
or
function button, select any blank digital page in which you
want to store a new page of your handwritten notes on paper. We recommend you to
put down the same page number on this new page of paper as the Digital Page
Number. It helps you to synchronize your paper notes and digital pages.
Under the current Digital Page Number displayed, everything you write will be
immediately captured and stored in the current digital page file of the current storage
device. The file name of this digital page is PAGE_XXX.DHW (the XXX is the Digital
Page Number such as 001).
While the Storage Device icon
is displayed, the digital page file is stored in the
DMEMO-M folder in the built-in 32 MB storage device.

While the Storage Device icon
DMEMO-C folder in the optional memory card.
Note!
To avoid creating a superimposed digital page, make sure that you select a
blank digital page each time you change a page on paper.
Note!
As you will see later, it is quite important to keep your written page number and
the Digital Page Number aligned. For example, you can know the contents in
the digital page from the page number that you wrote on paper.
Note!
If you frequently alternate the built-in 32 MB storage device and an optional
memory card, we recommend you to write the page number like “Page M24”,
“P M24”, “Page CF24”, “P CF24” … etc. It is more convenient for you to know
which storage device the digital page is stored in.
Note!
The more you write on a digital page, the bigger size of the digital page file will
be.
Writing Your Notes on a Page Already with Contents
Anytime you can switch to the paper page already with the contents and continue to
write your notes. Moreover, use the
or
function button to move the Digital Page
Number to the one same as you wrote on the paper page. Now, start to write! Through
this way, your new handwriting will be captured and stored in the right digital page.
Erasing a Digital Page on the Digital Pad

Then press the Erase button
on the pad. The display will show
message.

Note!
When
message appears, the erase procedure will be cancelled if
you write or press any button
,
or
to execute other functions. All
contents remain intact in the digital page.
Note!
Once a digital page is erased, its original contents can not be recovered.
Turning off the Digital Pad

If you have not written or pressed any function button within the previous 30 minutes,
the digital pad sounds a beep and automatically shuts down. The display will be blank.
Note!
Since the pad has the automatic shutdown capability, please make sure that
the display is on if you want to write again after a long period of time.
As you turn on the digital pad, the display will show the last Digital Page Number at the
time it was turned off.
Low Battery Indication on the Digital Pad
When the batteries remain too low power and are in need of replacement, the
Low Battery icon will appear on the display. Please replace the batteries in
the pad.
When the batteries are exhausted, the pad sounds 3 beeps and the Battery
Exhausted icon appears. Then the pad is turned off immediately.
Full Memory Indication
The 90% icon will appear to indicate that 90% capacity of the current storage
device (
or
) is used.
The Full icon will be shown if the memory is full in the current storage device
(
or
). If that is the case, the digital pad can not store your new
handwriting. Also, if you still keep writing, the pad sounds 2 beeps.
Note!
Under such circumstances, you need to erase unwanted digital pages if you
want to continue to write.
Note!
In the following chapter, you will find that it is very easy to import, copy, move
and delete the digital pages when connecting the pad to your PC through USB
cable.

Troubleshooting
Problem: A superimposed digital page is created.
Solution: Make sure to select a blank digital page each time you change a page on
paper.
Problem: Minor lengthened or shortened digital ink strokes occur
Solution: Write a little bit slowly or harder.
24
Problem: Significant missing, twisted, lengthened or shortened digital ink strokes
occur.
Solution: Please check the following situations for the digital pen:
z
The battery is correctly installed in the pen.
z
The battery must be inserted into the battery compartment with the
negative (-) cap facing the battery compartment.
z
The cushion (copper color) of the
battery is still located inside the
barrel cover. In fact, such cushion
will remain at its original position
unless it is improperly removed.
Barrel Cover
z
The barrel cover is screwed tightly onto the barrel of the pen.
z
Once the battery inside the digital pen has been used for a long time, it
should be replaced with a new one.
z
If you just replace an ink cartridge of the pen, please press the new
cartridge tip firmly against a hard surface until it snaps into place.
Please verify that the thickness of paper is under the writing thickness of the
digital pad.
Do not try to trace or write through any conductive material (for example:
steel ruler).
Problem: When you are writing or drawing on paper by using the digital pen on the
digital pad, the Pen icon does not appear on the display.
Solution: Try to alter the pressure you apply on the pen tip.
Problem: The digital pad can not be turned on.
Solution: Please verify the followings:
z
The battery compartment cover of the pad has been closed correctly
and completely.
z
The pad is not connected to your computer.
Problem: After using for a period of time, you can not turn on the digital pad.
Solution: The batteries in the pad may be exhausted. Please replace the batteries.
Problem: After you load an optional CF memory card into the digital pad and then turn
on the pad, the Storage Device icon
is not shown on the display. The
display still shows the Storage Device icon
.
Solution: Make sure that you insert the memory card correctly and firmly into the cardslot in the pad.
Problem: Even though the stored digital pages have not reached 999, the memory
(either in the built-in 32 MB storage device or in an optional memory card) is
25
full.
Solution: Although the digital pad has the ability to manage up to 999 digital pages
(either for the built-in 32 MB storage device or for an optional memory card),
such ability is unrelated to the maximum storage capacity.
The full memory means that the used space for the digital page files and the
other computer files reaches the maximum capacity of the built-in 32 MB
storage device or an optional memory card.
Problem: When connecting the digital pad to your computer through an USB port, your
Windows can not recognize the built-in 32 MB storage device and an
optional memory card in the pad as removable storage devices.
Solution: Please verify the followings:
z
The USB port is available.
z
Make sure that a power adapter provides enough power to the USB hub
while connecting the digital pad via an USB hub.
z
We recommend you connect the digital pad directly to an USB port on
the computer.
z
Occasionally, if your Windows can not recognize them, please restart
your Windows.
Problem: In the software window of DigiMemo Manager, the selected objects in an eBook file can not be copied or moved to a file for some programs such as
Notepad.
Solution: You can copy or move the selected objects to another file for other programs
such as Outlook e-mail message, Word file or Excel file. However, this
function is not suitable for all Windows programs.
Problem: After replacing the ink cartridge with the new one, the performance level of
the digital pen is lowered.
Solution: Please purchase and use an ink cartridge which we recommend.
Problem: Before disconnecting the digital pad from your computer, what should be
noticed?
Solution: The following stated notice is applied for all removable storage devices.
Close any associated windows for the built-in 32 MB storage device or an
optional CF memory card before attempting to disconnect the digital pad
from your computer.
