    Good day, all-

    I just picked up an eMate that I want to use as an on-location typewriter. When I get home, I need to tranfer the typed text to my G3 iMac running OS 10.1.

    I am trying to find the best way to do that & could not find any still-functioning webpages with such info so I am looking for help here.

    If this info is available somewhere, please direct me to the site.

    I am wondering do I need a serial to USB adapter for my iMac?
    An ethernet card for the emate?
    Just some sort of memory card I can swap from the eMate to some sort of card reader for the iMac.

    I can start up the iMac in OS9.2

    Thanks in advance,

    Try, it's a very much still active community surrounding the Newton. Search throught the archive as your question has been asked many times in the past (it's a common one.)

    As the iMac doesn't have serial ports, you'll most likely need a USB>Serial adapter (search the net) and you need to install the Newton Connection Utility, which would only run under Classic or OS 9.

    I recommend heading over to and reading up here. It has all the info you need.

    Hope that helps

    Hey, thanks. I have my adapter & eMate now. I got the software downloaded & now I just need to dig up a serial cable.

    Thanks for the help!
