# How Do You Transfer Notes (in .doc/.txt Format) From Pc To Classpad 33

I've got my ClassPad 330, installed all the included software on my PC, and now all I need to know is how I can write notes on my computer, and then transfer them to my calculator. Do I need to buy the ClassPad Manager software, or is there another way?

Cheers,

James

I don't think there is any way other way of entering text unless there is some similiar after market product that will do the job.

Well that's a real pity. Casio provides all the cords etc. to connect to the computer, but they don't offer essential software!

Forgive me for saying this but you are mistaken. It is not essential software. You can use the calculator to its full potential without that software and that software does much more than allow you to enter text. An alternative you had was to buy the TI-nspire cas calculator or the Hp50g however you have made the right choice. For reasons to numerous to list here the classpad 330 is far superior to the other cas calculators including the TI calculators. If you don't believe me, go to http://www.amazon.co...nDateDescending scroll down and read the reviews written by other people.

The CAS of the HP 50g is more flexible.

Huh? What is that supposed to mean?

Please support that opinion with some examples. Thank you.

They are both having decent CAS. I sold my HP 50g long time ago so I can't compare them right now.

But if memory served me correctly, the HP 50g can compute very big number.

Try something like 500! or 99^200 on both calculator... and then gradually increase the number, in the second case, the exponent. You will see that the HP 50g will be able to go way farther than the classpad that will be overflowed at some points.

One problem with the HP is that it's complicated to use and not worth it. It's also a batteries hog.

You try to calculate this expression with CASIO ClassPad, TI-NSPRE CAS and TI 89T/V200, you fail in any way:

'ABS(\GS(K=1,+\oo,((1+i)/2)^K))' ('\GS' is the summation symbol and 'i' is the imaginary unit)

Using the HP 50g we can do it with these steps:

'\GS(K=1,N,((1+i)/2)^K)' EVAL SIMPLIFY

'(-(i*EXP((2*N*LN(2)+i*\pi*N)/4))+i*EXP(N*LN(2)))/EXP(N*LN(2))'

'N=\oo'

'lim'

result: 'i'

and finally we get 1 with ABS

P.S. The HP 50g can calculate symbolically '99999^999' and numerically a 100x100 linear system!

That is nice to know. I have an Hp50g but I don't use it because it is to much of a head ache to deal with. I'll keep it around for all the times when I need to know the value of '99999^999' or solve a 100x100 linear system. Just kidding. Maple is more appropriate for a problems like that but I do use the 50g for Laplace transforms.

The ease of use is entirely subjective, but the HP 50g is not so hard to use! Each calculator has advantages and disadvantages, and the strength of the HP 50g is the programmability. :-)

What you say is true but keep in mind that learning how to use the 50g has been known to make grown men cry. I can testify to that fact.
