VAIO® Notebook Quick Start
Using Your VAIO®
PictureBook™
1
This section describes how to use the keyboard, MOTION EYE™
camera, Pointing Device, PC Cards, Jog Dial Control, Memory Stick
media, and optional floppy disk and optical drives. You will also find
information on how to connect your PictureBook to another computer or
i.LINK device.
Using the Keyboard
Your keyboard is very similar to a typewriter’s, but your notebook keyboard has
additional keys that perform specific computer-related tasks.

Key
Description
Numeric keypad area
Contains the keys found on a typical calculator. Use the numeric
keypad area to type numbers or to perform mathematical
calculations such as addition and subtraction. Numbers appear on
the front beveled edge of the numeric keys. Note that you must
press the Num Lock key to activate the numeric keypad. (When
you do so, the Num Lock light will be on.)
Several keys are devoted to moving the cursor on the screen (the
four arrow keys which also function as the Home, End, Page Up,
and Page Down keys).
The Insert, Backspace, and Delete keys enable you to make
corrections in your documents.
The twelve function keys along the top of the keyboard are used to
perform designated tasks. For example, in many applications, F1
is the Help key. The task associated with each function key may
vary from one application to the next.
The Esc (Escape) key is used to cancel commands.
The Print Screen key takes an electronic snapshot of the screen
and places it in the Windows Clipboard. You can then paste the
screen shot into a document and print it.
Several keys are always used with at least one other key: Ctrl, Alt,
and Shift. When held down with another key, the Ctrl (Control)
and Alt (Alternate) keys offer another way to give commands. For
example, in many applications, instead of choosing the Save
command from a menu, you can hold down Ctrl and press S
(referred to as Ctrl+S). The Shift key operates the same way as on
a typewriter; it’s used to produce capital letters or special symbols
such as @ and $.
The key with the Windows® logo displays the Windows® Start
menu; it’s the equivalent of clicking the Start button on the task
bar. See “Combinations and Functions with the Windows Key” on
page 9.
The Fn key is used in combination with other keys to issue
commands. The Fn keys at the left and right sides both work the
same. See “Combinations and Functions with the Fn Key” on
page 10.
The Applications key displays a shortcut menu of
context-sensitive choices; pressing this key is the equivalent of
clicking the right mouse button.

Connecting with another VAIO® computer
Connecting with another VAIO® computer
Windows Me™
You can connect your VAIO PictureBook to another VAIO computer that has the
preinstalled Windows Me operating system or the Sony Smart Connect 3.0
software preinstalled. You may use an optional i.LINK®* cable to connect the
two systems and then use one computer to edit, copy, or delete files on the other
computer. You can also print from a printer that is attached to either computer.
Select the STD mode in Smart Connect 3.0 software to connect with another
computer that has Windows Me preinstalled.
Connecting with an i.LINK cable
i.LINK cable (optional)
Windows 2000
The preinstalled Smart Connect software enables you to use an optional i.LINK®
cable to connect your VAIO PictureBook to another VAIO computer that also has
Smart Connect or preinstalled Windows Me. You can then use one computer to
edit, copy or delete files on the other computer. You can also print from a printer
attached to either computer.
See Smart Connect online Help for more information.
* i.LINK is a trademark of Sony used only to designate that a product contains an IEEE1394
connection. The i.LINK connection may vary, depending on the software applications, operating system and i.LINK compatible devices. All products with an i.LINK connection may
not communicate with each other.
Please refer to the documentation that came with your i.LINK compatible device for information on operating conditions and proper connection. Before connecting i.LINK compatible
PC peripherals to your system, such as a CD-RW or hard disk drive, confirm their operating
system compatibility and required operating conditions.
21
VAIO® Notebook Quick Start
✍ When you connect two VAIO computers, you must assign each computer a unique
name. The computers can be identified by this unique name when the two computers
are networked together.
✍ If you have previously purchased a VAIO computer or notebook that does not have the
Windows Me operating system or Smart Connect 3.0 software preinstalled, consult
the Sony website for support options (http://www.sony.com/pcsupport).
Connecting an i.LINK®* device
The VAIO C1 PictureBook includes an i.LINK S400 (IEEE1394) connector,
which you can use to connect to an i.LINK enabled digital camcorder.
To connect a digital camcorder
❑
Plug one end of an i.LINK cable into the
S400 connector on the left side
of the computer and the other end into the DV In/Out connector on the
digital camcorder.
* i.LINK is a trademark of Sony used only to designate that a product contains an IEEE1394

VAIO® Notebook Quick Start
❑
The i.LINK connector does not supply power to external devices. If the
external device requires power from the i.LINK connector, you cannot use
the device with your computer.
❑
The C1 PictureBook supports transfer rates up to 400 Mbps; however, the
actual transfer rate is limited to the maximum transfer rate supported by the
external device. If multiple devices are connected, the transfer rate will be
the lowest maximum transfer rate for the connected devices.
❑
The i.LINK features available may vary depending on the software
applications you use. See the documentation that came with your software
for more information.
DVgate™ Applications
Digital Video Captures
If your system displays the message, “Failed to record to DV deck, please check
deck’s power status, cable connection…,” while you are recording images to a
digital video device using DVgate software, close all open applications, and
restart your computer. Frequent recording of images to a digital video device
while using DVgate may cause this situation to occur.
For more information on DVgate software, see the DVgate online help.
Adjusting Image Resolution
If the images on the LCD do not display smoothly, the resolution may not be set
correctly. To check the resolution, click the Setup button in the DVgate
Motion-Monitor window. Point to Settings, and then select Low Resolution. The
settings you change in this menu affect the images in the monitor window only.
Movie data imported to your hard drive and images recorded to DV devices will
not be affected.
Hard Disk Drive Partition
In order to improve the performance of your notebook’s DVgate™ Motion
software, the hard disk drive on your notebook has been formatted with two
partitions, C and D. The C partition hold 40 percent and the D partition holds 60
percent of the entire drive capacity. DV gate saves files tot he D partition. This
prevents large video capture from consuming the available space on your C
partition. To maintain optimum performance of DVgate, you should defragment
or format the D partition regularly.
