Entering data into your Sony CLIÉ Handheld
Using Graffiti® writing to enter data
This section describes the procedures for creating letters, numbers,
punctuation, and symbols, and teaches you some Graffiti® tips and tricks.
What is Graffiti writing?
Most people find they can enter text quickly and accurately with only
minutes of practice. Graffiti writing includes any character you can type on a
standard keyboard. The Graffiti strokes closely resemble the upper case
letters of the regular alphabet, which makes Graffiti writing easy to learn.
There are four basic concepts for success with Graffiti writing:
• If you draw the character shape exactly as shown in the Writing Graffiti
alphabet table in this chapter, and as shown below, you can achieve 100%
accuracy.
Graffiti writing examples:
A, B, C, D, and E
• The heavy dot on each shape shows where to begin the stroke. Certain
characters have similar shapes, but different beginning and end points.
Always begin the stroke at the heavy dot (you should not create the heavy
dot; it is only there to show you where to begin the stroke).
• Most characters require only a single stroke. When you lift the stylus from
the Graffiti writing area, your CLIÉ handheld recognizes and displays the
text character immediately.
To allow you to write an entire character with a single stroke, some
Graffiti strokes are portions of the regular alphabet equivalents.
• The Graffiti writing area is divided into two parts: one for writing the
letters of the alphabet and one for writing numbers. The small marks at
the top and bottom of the Graffiti writing area separate the two areas.
Write letters here
Write numbers here
Division marks
Chapter1 Basic operations of your Sony CLIÉ Handheld

Entering data into your Sony CLIÉ Handheld
Writing Graffiti letters
1
Tap where you want your text to go.
Note
You need to tap above the Graffiti writing area, and you must see a flashing cursor
before you write the text.
2
Use the tables on the following pages to find the stroke
shape for the letter you want to create. For example, the
stroke shown below creates the letter "n".
Note
There are two different stroke shapes available for some letters. For these letters,
choose the one that's easiest for you.
Lift stylus here
Start stroke at heavy dot
As you will see later, you use the same shape to create both the upper
case and lower case version of a letter.
3
Position the stylus in the left-hand side of the Graffiti writing
area.
Position the stylus
4
Start your stroke at the heavy dot and draw the stroke shape
as it appears in the tables.
5
Lift the stylus from the screen at the end of the stroke shape.
That is all there is to it. When you lift the stylus from the screen, your
CLIÉ handheld recognizes your stroke immediately and prints the letter
at the insertion point on the screen.
As soon as you lift the stylus from the screen, you can begin the stroke for
the next character you want to write.

Chapter1 Basic operations of your Sony CLIÉ Handheld
12
Entering data into your Sony CLIÉ Handheld
Note
You must begin the character strokes in the Graffiti writing area. If you do not
make Graffiti strokes in the Graffiti writing area, your CLIÉ handheld does not
recognize them as text characters.
Tips
• Accuracy improves when you write large characters. You should draw strokes that
nearly fill the Graffiti writing area.
• To delete characters, simply set the insertion point to the right of the character you
want to delete and make the backspace stroke (a line from right to left) in the Graffiti
writing area.
• Write at natural speed. Writing too slowly can generate recognition errors.
• Do not write on a slant. Vertical strokes should be parallel to the sides of the Graffiti
writing area.
• Press firmly.
To display the Graffiti onscreen help
Drag the stylus from the bottom of the writing area to the top of the screen. Graffiti
Help opens a series of screens that show the complete Graffiti character set.

Entering data into your Sony CLIÉ Handheld
Using your computer keyboard
If you have a lot of data to enter, or prefer to use the computer keyboard,
you can use the Palm™ Desktop for CLIÉ software or any other supported
personal information manager (PIM), such as Microsoft Outlook®, to enter
information. You can then perform a HotSync® operation to synchronize the
information on your computer with the information on your CLIÉ handheld.
All the main applications on your CLIÉ handheld are also available in the
Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software and in most PIMs, so you don't need to
learn different applications.
Refer to the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software online Help for more
information on entering data on your computer.
To import data from your computer or another handheld
If you have data stored in computer applications such as spreadsheets, databases, or if
you want to import data from another handheld, you can transfer the data to your CLIÉ
handheld and use it without entering data manually. Save the data in a compatible file
format (.csv, .txt, .tab, .tsv, .dba, .aba, .tda, .mpa), import it into your Palm Desktop for
CLIÉ software, and then perform a HotSync operation to transfer the data to your CLIÉ
handheld. For details, see “Chapter 3: Exchanging and updating data using a
HotSync® operation.”

Notes
• If you change the start date of a repeating event, your CLIÉ handheld
calculates the number of days you moved the event. Your CLIÉ handheld
then automatically changes the end date to maintain the duration of the
repeating event.
• If you change the repeat interval (e.g., daily to weekly) of a repeating
event, past occurrences (prior to the day on which you change the setting)
are not changed, and your CLIÉ handheld creates a new repeating event.
• If you change the date of an occurrence of a repeating event (e.g., from
January 14 to January 15) and apply the change to all occurrences, the new
date becomes the start date of the repeating event. Your CLIÉ handheld
adjusts the end date to maintain the duration of the event.
• If you change other repeat settings (e.g., time, alarm, private) of a
repeating event and apply the change to all occurrences, your CLIÉ
handheld creates a new event. The start date of this new event is the day
on which the setting is changed. Past occurrences (prior to the day of the
change) are not changed.
• If you apply a change to a single occurrence of a repeating event (e.g.,
time), that occurrence no longer shows the repeat
icon.

What is a HotSync® operation?
A HotSync® operation is a one-step operation that allows you to
synchronize data between your CLIÉ handheld and your computer. With
just one press on the HotSync button, you can synchronize your CLIÉ
handheld application data with the Palm™ Desktop for CLIÉ software data
on your computer, back up the data of your CLIÉ handheld on your
computer, or install add-on applications.
1 Synchronize the Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and Memo Pad
data on your CLIÉ handheld and your computer. The Palm Desktop for
CLIÉ software can manage the data of multiple CLIÉ handhelds
independently.
2 Back up the data stored on your CLIÉ handheld onto your computer.
Synchronization ensures that your data is always safe and up-to-date. In
case you need to perform a hard reset, a HotSync operation allows you to
restore the data.
3 Import the data on your computer or install add-on applications onto
your CLIÉ handheld.

Customizing HotSync application settings (Conduit)
What is a “Conduit”?
For each application, you can define a set of options that determine how
records are handled during synchronization. These options are called a
“conduit.” By default, a HotSync® operation synchronizes all files between
your CLIÉ handheld and the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software.
In general, you should leave the settings as they are to synchronize all files.
The only reason you might want to change these settings is to overwrite data
on either your CLIÉ handheld or the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software, or to
avoid synchronizing a particular type of file because you do not use it.
In addition to the conduits for Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and
Memo Pad, the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software offers System and Install
conduits. The System conduit backs up the system information stored on
your CLIÉ handheld. The Install conduit installs add-on applications to your
CLIÉ handheld.

Using Memory Stick® media
What is Memory Stick® media?
Memory Stick® media is a new compact, portable and versatile Integrated
Circuit recording medium with a data capacity that exceeds a floppy disk.
Memory Stick media is specially designed for exchanging and sharing
digital data among Memory Stick media compatible products such as a
digital video camera. Because it is removable, Memory Stick media can also
be used for external data storage.
Memory Stick media allows you to exchange data between your CLIÉ
handheld and your computer or a digital camera that supports Memory
Stick media. To exchange data via Memory Stick media, your CLIÉ
handheld uses the supplied Memory Stick Gate (MS Gate) application.
Types of Memory Stick media
There are two types of Memory Stick media:
• MagicGate Memory Stick media, which is equipped with “MagicGate”
copyright protection technology. MagicGate Memory Stick media is
distinguished by the
logo.
• Memory Stick media, which is not equipped with “MagicGate” copyright
protection technology.
You can use both types of Memory Stick media with this CLIÉ handheld
(PEG-T615C/G or PEG-T415/G). Note, however, that your CLIÉ handheld does
not support the “MagicGate” copyright protection technology. You can use
a MagicGate Memory Stick media with your CLIÉ handheld as a standard
Memory Stick media.
Note on using MagicGate Memory Stick media
If you use the MS Gate application or Windows® Explorer to copy a protected file onto
a MagicGate Memory Stick media or if you handle a folder containing a protected file,
the file may be disabled. To handle copyright-protected files, use a “MagicGate”
compliant device such as Memory Stick Walkman®, or a Sony VAIO computer with
“MagicGate” compliant application such as OpenMG Jukebox.

Notes on starting applications installed to/from the Memory Stick
media (without using the MS Gate application)
Observe the following when starting applications that were installed to/
from a Memory Stick media not by using the MS Gate application, but by
using a HotSync operation or by copying the applications from the
Application Launcher screen.
• You can only start application files (files with extensions such as .prc,
.pdb). Image files and movie files that come with the application cannot be
started (played).
If you cannot start the installed file data, move the file data to the CLIÉ
handheld using the MS Gate application, or delete the files. If you do not use
the MS Gate application when installing, applications and data files are
stored in the ”PALM/Launcher” folder.

Non-ASCII Characters for Log in Scripts
The following information enables you to create custom log in scripts that
require non-ASCII characters. It is provided for advanced users who
understand the use and requirements of such characters in a custom log in
script.
Use of ^char
You may use the caret ( ^ ) to transmit ASCII command characters. If you
send ^char, and the ASCII value of char is between @ and _, then the
character is automatically translated to a single-byte value between 0 and 31.
For example, ^M is converted to a carriage return.
If char is a value between a and z, then the character sequence is translated
to a single-byte value between 1 and 26. If char is any other value, then the
character sequence is not subject to any special processing. For example, the
string “Joe^M” transmits Joe, followed by a carriage return.
Carriage return and line feed
You may include carriage return and line feed commands as part of the
login script, when entered in the following format.
• <cr> : Sends or receives a carriage return
• <lf> : Sends or receives a line feed
For example, the string “waitfor Joe<cr><lf>” waits to receive Joe followed
by a carriage return and line feed from the remote computer before
executing the next command in the script.
Literal characters
The backslash ( \ ) character defines that the next character is transmitted as
a literal character, and is not subject to any special processing ordinarily
associated with that character.
Examples:
• \^ : Includes a caret as part of the string
• \< : Includes a < as part of the string
• \\ : Includes a backslash as part of the string

Backing up data of your Sony CLIÉ Handheld
You can save a back-up copy of your CLIÉ handheld by performing either of
the following three methods:
• Backing up data to your computer through HotSync® operation
• Backing up all data to a Memory Stick® media using the MS Backup
application
• Backing up data to a Memory Stick® media using the MS Gate application
Backing up data to your computer through a HotSync®
operation
By default, you can back-up the following data in your computer with a
HotSync operation:
• Memo Pad data files
• Address Book data files
• To Do List data files
• Date Book data files
• Preferences data files
• Network Setup information
• Applications files that have been installed using a HotSync operation
• User information files when you perform a HotSync operation
During the next HotSync operation, the back-up data is compared with the

Precautions
Battery considerations
Follow these precautions when you charge your CLIÉ handheld.
On charging
• It takes approximately four hours to charge your CLIÉ handheld when
the battery is empty.
• If you charge your CLIÉ handheld every day, it takes only a few minutes
to charge the battery.
• You can operate your CLIÉ handheld while it is being charged.
On the battery life
• With a fully-charged battery, you can use your CLIÉ handheld for:
– approximately 12 days, 30 minutes each day (PEG-T615C/G),

between 4 inches (approximately 10 centimeters) and 8 inches
(approximately 20 centimeters) apart, and that the path between the
two handhelds is clear of obstacles. Beaming distance to other Palm
OS PDA may be different.
, Move your CLIÉ handheld closer to the receiving handheld.
, Make sure that the Beam Receive function of the other Palm OS PDA
is turned on.

Troubleshooting – Frequently Asked Questions
Password problems
I forgot the password, and my CLIÉ handheld is not locked.
, You can use Security to delete the password, but your CLIÉ
handheld deletes all records marked as private. To back up all data
including private records, perform a HotSync operation before you
delete the password. Then follow these steps to restore your private
records onto your CLIÉ handheld:
1 Perform a HotSync operation to back up your data.
2 Tap Forgotten Password in Security to remove the password and
delete all private records.
3 Perform a HotSync operation to synchronize your data and restore
the private records by transferring them from your computer to
your CLIÉ handheld.
I forgot the password and my CLIÉ handheld is locked.
, If you assign a password and lock your CLIÉ handheld, you must perform
a hard reset to continue using your CLIÉ handheld. See “Resetting your
Sony CLIÉ Handheld” (page 24) for more information.

Troubleshooting – Frequently Asked Questions
If you still cannot perform a HotSync® operation
If you have reviewed items in the troubleshooting list and the HotSync®
operation problem persists, review the following.
You cannot perform a HotSync operation before you install the
Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software on your computer
If you perform a HotSync operation before you install the CLIÉ drivers,
other drivers may be installed. Make sure to install the Palm Desktop for
CLIÉ software first and then perform a HotSync operation.
Do not use a USB hub
If you connect the cradle to your computer via a USB hub, you may not be
able to perform a HotSync operation properly. Make sure to connect the
cradle directly to a USB connector of your computer.
Some computers have the hub function built into their internal circuity.
Contact your computer manufacturer if the USB connector of your computer
is connected to an internal USB hub.
Check the USB driver being used
If you are using or have used a communication device that uses a virtual
COM port, its driver may conflict with the driver for your CLIÉ handheld,
preventing a HotSync operation. Remove the relevant driver or reinstall the
driver for your CLIÉ handheld. Or reinstall all software on your computer.
Check that the USB port of your computer is enabled
If you are using Windows 95 pre-installed computer or another old type of
computer equipped with a USB port, the USB port may be disabled by
default. If another device such as a USB mouse cannot be used, check the
BIOS setting of your computer.
Also check the Device Manager. Right-click on My Computer and select
Properties. Click Device Manager tab and check that USB controller is listed
in the Device Manager screen.
