Hi i accidentally erased my Casio PRIZM!!!
« on: July 10, 2011, 12:44:39 pm »
It's my first time owning a graphing calculator, and decided to pick this one up instead of the TI Nspire CX CAS as i am really brand new into the use of them. I got it today, and after playing for a while i decided to RESET Setup Memory,Main Memory and Storage!!. Add-ins i didn't touch them. I don't even have picture plot images, thought the calc would have a "restore to factory settings" option, but i don't see it. Please, can someone guide me and place the files here??

I'm really curious and would know how to use my new PRIZM. Thanks!!!
(The reason i got this, is because everyone in Venezuela uses Casio calcs. If i was living in the states maybe i would get a CX Cas from Vernier, i want something easy and reliable to use. I'm just starting calculus on college).

The reset that you did was actually a kind of "reset to factory settings" option. :) It removes all of your content and sets the settings to their default values. However, since Casio places a few example images on all new calculators, these have now been deleted. You won't need them in order to use the Prizm - they're just examples. However, if you want to download them to your calculator, you can do it here: http://edu.casio.com/products/cg_series/materials.html

Also, you can find the add-ins here in case you lose them: https://edu.casio.com/download_service/

To transfer files from your computer to your calculator, connect it using the USB cable. A message should appear on the Prizm screen - press F1 when you see it. In your computer, the calculator will now look and act like a USB flash drive.

Hmm, that's strange. When did it show you that? After clicking on a file that you wanted to download?

Just do File>Save and you can save it as whatever file you want.

EDIT: Darn, ninja'd.

it's not strange, the same thing happens with the TI-84 OS.  Safari thinks it should display the file instead of trying to download it, so you have to manually download it.

Ah, okay. I thought that Safari would be smart enough to not display a file that it doesn't know anything about. :P

So the picture plot images are the only thing that i erased in storage?? Or there's more and i haven't been aware of. is the Prizm compatible with mac? (haven't even connected to the usb yet) I'm gonna eat lunch, after ... i will manually place all the files into the prizm. Thanks, i'll keep you guys posted!

Also should i update to the new software, available as of today on Casio's site?

I think those were the only ones that were deleted.

You can send files to and from the calculator using any operating system, including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. However, I think Casio's emulator and Prizm OS updates are for Windows only.
Also should i update to the new software, available as of today on Casio's site?
You can do it if you want to, but the new update doesn't seem to add any new functions.
