Hi there,

I recently bought an old Apple Newton eMate 300...these were word processors and day planners in notebook format that came out in the late 90s. I bought it so I could do word processing on it rather than use my iBook. I'm writing my novel on my new eMate 300 word processor but I'd really like to back up my work, especially considering that this old word processor is probably on its last leg. I'm not sure what I need to do to transfer it to another computer. It has an IR port (my iBook does not) and two other cable ports on the side. Can anyone please tell me what I need to do to be able to save a copy of my work on my iBook or on a zip drive or something...like what cables I'd need to buy or any other way to do it? (Sorry, I'm not very knowledgeable about computers)

Here is a pic of my Mac iBook's ports:



Here are all the ports on the side of my vintage Apple eMate:

Cable Port #1


Cable Port #2 (looks like a USB drive but isn't)


IR Port

Newton Connection Utilities will enable you to transfer work if your are using OS X.5 Leopard and may well explain how to connect the two, probably a serial/USB port cable>-

Newton Connection

Here is a link to the cable info:-

Thank you so much, Harry. Those are extremely helpful links.

I'm wondering, would I absolutely need to download anything or would I be able to transfer documents with just a serial cable + USB adapter without downloading anything?

Thanks again!
