Hi James...and welcome!

Just as an aside--should all else fail--there are several members here that offer the service of loading all necessary drivers, packages, etc. on either a PCMCIA storage card that you supply...or, you can purchase one from them already loaded. This applies to both MessagePads and eMates.

New here, just got an eMate 300 and trying to install Newton Connection Utilities 2.0 (and upgrade to 2.03) on Win XP machine. I modified the System.INI file with the DEVICE=C:\NEWTON\TSIVID.386 in the [386Enh] section but when I run the NCU, it still says the file isn't modified, and also it says it cannot open NEWTON.EX_, even though that file is there in the install directory.

I have the serial cable but without the install it doesn't matter much. Is there a step I'm missing or is there a better way to do this, without this program or cable, maybe with a PCMCIA adapter of some sort? 

Thanks for your time and any help is greatly appreciated.
