or Pocket PC, you can still enjoy many of the files in MemoWare's
collection. You will need some specific programs to read these documents,
and this page lists all that we are aware of. If you know of any
that we've missed, please let
us know. Thanks.
Newton owners can view DOC format text files and ImageViewer graphic
files by using the Newt's
Cape shareware web browser/book creation tool, along with Steve
plugin. Users can download .PRC and .PDB files directly from the web

Helio owners can use DOC files found here at MemoWare. To do so, DOC
(.PDB) files must be converted into Helio-friendly .HDB files. The
converter to do this is free and can be found at the VTech
Helio website -- just click on the "O2 Downloads" link and scroll
down to find the "PDB to HDB converter" utility. This conversion only
works with plain DOC files, not other formats (even if the filename
ends in .pdb).
Owners of the Sharp Zaurus (the one that runs Qtopia on top of Linux)

must be read using QTReader.
Support is offered either directly via e-mail or via www.zauruszone.com
in the Downloads...Qtopia...qtreader topic. It works on all Zaurus
SL5500 devices and on those Compaq Ipaqs that have Opie installed
on top of Linux.
