Ok, here goes. My mother in law recently gave me a NZ-90/u, as she got a new model or something. I am currently in Iraq, and have been all year. I don't have the directions or anything like that. the main reason I got it is so that I can send pictures and video home to my wife, however I can't seem to get them to transfer to my laptop. I have the cradle and can send pictures over through it using hotsync, but only in an album, and they then come up as a BXU file, and I don't know how to change that to Jpeg, and I can't figure out how to send videos at all. I also have a memory stick, but from what I can tell she didn't give me the software to go with it, thats what mother-in-laws are for I guess. anyway, is there an easier way to send pictures and videos over so that I can email them to my wife? Thanks for the help.
The easiest way to transfer pics is going to need some software. First, make certain you store the pictures on the memory stick. (I think it's the default setting.) Then try to get your hands on the NZ install CD. It contains an application called MS Export. When connected to your laptop via the USB cable, MS Export on your laptop and MS Import on the NZ allow you to treat the memory stick as a hard-drive, so pictures can easily be transferred from the stick to your laptop. The default camera setting saves the pictures as JPG files, so those should be readily e-mailable. (Is that even a word?)
Take care of yourself out there!

I transfer my photos from my memory stick to my PC by using a USB 6-in-1 card reader. They are cheap and fast, just pop the memory stick in the card reader and look for the card reader drive in "My Computer" and transfer the files to your hard drive...
No software necessary for this method...

Ok, long weekend. I hooked up the clie to my laptop and brought up microsoft import. it says it is connected to the pc but cannot find a memory stick. However I can save stuff onto the memory stick, and access it within the clie. I fear I may be S.O.L. here, war has made me very impatient. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John

When using ms import, go to windows explorer (win98) or whatever you use to search your computer's hard drive. It will not be labeled memory stick, it will either be drive E or F. Double click that and you will see the various folders in your memory stick. If memory serves me right, pictures will be in a folder called DCIM and videos will be in folder called MQ_ROOT. Hope that helps.
MS Import only works when it's fraternal twin MS Export is installed on your laptop. You didn't mention if that was the case or not. The MS Export program comes on the NZ90 install CD. If you don't have it, check online at http://www.cliesource.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=30365 for a download.
If you have MS Export installed, then hook up the NZ with the USB cable and start up MS Import. In the bottom-right system tray of your laptop screen (which I hope is Windows 2000 or more recent), the USB Icon should appear. That tells you the Clie MS is connected and you should be able to get to it using the Windows Explorer or via My Computer.
To disconnect, click the USB icon on your laptop - it'll pop up a message saying it'll "safely disconnnect.." the USB drive. Click that, wait a second, and then the disconnect is okay from the laptop side. You can then hit disconnect on the Clie in MS Import.
Hope this helps!

Acutally only MS SCSI driver is needed (of course, it will also be installed together w/ MS Export). You can install it from CD by program and point to the driver folder in CD when installing driver in Windows manually.

I only have MS Import installed on NZ and it works as previously posted.

I am starting to suspect that this piece of machinery wasn't made for poor dumb infantrymen. I ought to give it to one of the Iraqi kids,...keep them too busy to throw rocks at me. I do indeed have microsoft export on my laptop. Whenever I plug into the usb port and click on microsoft import, it comes up on the clie as "connected to the pc, no memory stick detected" and on my laptop the usb icon appears, and it pops up under the F drive, but when I try to open up the F drive, it says there is no disk inserted. I have the startup disk that came with the clie, and I have installed and uninstalled 2 or 3 times now to make sure its on there right. Any idea why my clie says that it won't read the memory stick? It allows me to save onto it and will read it just fine in all the other programs. Also it doesn't seem to work on other computers either. Thanks for the help

If you are in Iraq, take it to your G-1, or S-1 shop and ask anyone who knows about computer programs.
This transfer stuff is not that complicated.
Or, do as other people do......get the 6 in 1 memory stick reader.....that will solve your problems easy as breeze.
I would take it to S-6 and ask their support.......
