    I have tried to download the files but It does not seem to work for me. Dont know if its me or something else.
    When I download the capture.zip it downloads but when I uncompress it I get a 0 size file.
    when I download the other file, the How to make screenshots ... then uncompress it I get "File skipped unkown compression method" error
    Other zips work fine? What are others experiences?

    I tried the method I read else where in which case you create a folder in the root called screen and press top left corner but this does not seem to work.

    I have a xxl 550s. brand new.

    Regards

        Weeell no, Im using the standard zip that comes with windows. It ends in .zip so I believed that zip would work. I asume by your question that I should be using a .rar program. ..... [time] Ok I have tryed the document and it indeed uncompresses with when unziped with .rar program. The other program capture.zip however still uncompresses to 0 amount. And when I open file there is nothing there.

        I dont really understand shouldnt a .zip be a .zip and work with standard xp zip. This is particuarly confusing to me since some other programs I have downloaded from the site work with xp zip.

        Not dazed but confused??

        Thanks.

          I know....... has become somewhat of a clusterfu*k

          Winrar is the one and just about only compression
          utility used today. Prolly been 10 years since Winzip has
          even been on a HD of mine.The beauty of Winrar is that
          it works across muti-apps and rules the earth when it comes
          to splitting up large app/movie/ect into a multi archive.
          Once you've used Winrar for awhile, you'll never consider
          using anything else.

            Thanks.

            By the way after reading the pdf on how to do a screen shot. It works great.

            First thing I did was did a screen shot of my vital information of my unit.

            Question: Is there anyway of leaving it enabled to take pictures but keep using the TT. When I'm on a map and want to use the + icon to increase size of map I keep taking pictures, cause its up in the top left. Maybe there is no way, but its a hasle having to open up the device via the computer and creating the capture file when you want to take a picture.

            thanks.
