Thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't work. I now suspect there might be
an issue with my COM1 port settings. Mine are:

Bits per second: 38400
Parity: none
Stop bits: 1
Flow control: none

Can anyone confirm this works for their Windows NCU to emate?

Hi David
I know this might be overly obvious but have you checked that the
correct Comm Port is chosen in NCU on the Toshiba.
Go to NCU, Newton, Settings and just check the Comm Port number. I had a
similar problem as you describe until I changed this.

Also make sure on the emate that when you tap on Dock that 'Serial' is
chosen, not Serial -2400, or Serial 4800 or Serial 9600

(Basic suggestions from a beginner only)
