    Getting Technical

    Want to find PC-Calculator software and hardware? Or get in touch with Casio hackers? The links from this page cover technical aspects of the Casio graphing calculators.

    No more typing!
    Mail order your PC - Calc cable and then download the free Casio FA-122 software or FA-123 software to load programs and games straight into your calculator! You can also free up your calculator memory by storing notes, programs, etc on your PC. Also available: Calc - Calc cables.

    Thanks Microsoft!
    A big thanks to the guys at Microsoft for taking over the *.cat extension for their 'security catalogs' - something you'll discover when you install IE5. Double clicking a Casio program catalog no longer opens the file with the FA-122 software unless you (a) remove the security catalog from registered file types and (b) create a new type with (i) any description such as 'Casio program file', (ii) 'application' as the mime type, (iii) 'cat' as the default extension, (iv) create a new action called 'open' which uses c:\\FA-122\fa122.exe (or other path) as the application to perform the action. The same applies if you are using the FA-123 software.
