Sample Digital Wallet Menu Screens
Back to the main Digital Wallet Review

Rather than clutter up our main review with a lot of menu screens that might only be of interest to a few people, we've put them here for perusal by the truly curious...

This is the main screen you see after powering-on the Wallet. Options are to download data from a memory card, view the contents of the Digital Wallet's capacious hard drive, or view a variety of information about the unit itself.

This is the download screen, reached by seleting "Download Content" from the main screen. The first option here lets you check to see if the last cardful of data was downloaded OK. The second option is the one you'd select to download data from a new card. Remember that the Wallet downloads ALL the information on a card, all at once: No picking and choosing which files you want. It also never erases a card, so your data is intact after the download operation.

Not much to say here: This is the screen you see while a card download is in progress.

This is an example of what you see when you select "Display Volume" from the main menu screen. The folder names of downloaded cards are automatically generated by the Wallet. The date appears to be the date of the most recent file in each directory. No information is given as to how much space each folder occupies. When the wallet is connected to a host computer, you can change any of these names at will. Note though, that they're always the 8.3 "DOS" filenames that underly the Windows operating system, even if longer names appear in Windows.

From here, if you select one of the folders shown, you'll have options to either delete it or upload it to a memory card.

This is the screen that appears when you select "Information" from the main menu display. The error codes option displays available error codes (see below), Version gives you the current firmware version running on the Digital Wallet, Battery Level and Free Disk Space are self-explanatory.

The Wallet gives you a host of possible error codes, but they're only likely to be useful to the most sophisticated users, who have access to Windows disk-repair tools. Knowing that you have a "Cluster Chain" error doesn't do much to help fix the problem, but does tell you what the problem is so you can fix it with a Windows/DOS disk utility.

The Free Disk Space display is pretty simplistic, but we couldn't resist showing this picture, indicating that 5.3 Gigabytes were available on the unit, after we'd downloaded a few hundred megabytes of digicam files to it! That's a LOT of storage space!
