Getting a file from the calculator’s storage memory#

Warning

This guide is currently only available for fx-9860G and compatible calculators, excluding the fx-CG line of calculators, which need to be used as a normal storage device (“USB Key” mode).

In this guide, we will assume you want to transfer the MYADDIN.G1A file from your calculator.

The instructions vary depending on the way your calculator is connected, see the correct section for your case.

For more options, see p7 command line reference and get subcommand reference.

If you are using USB#

The steps are the following:

  1. Connect the calculator to the PC using a mini USB cable.

  2. Select the DataTrans (TransfDon in French) mode when prompted.

  3. Run the transfer from the PC using p7 get.

Once steps 1 and 2 are done, run the following command:

p7 get MYADDIN.G1A

The file should have been successfully transferred from the calculator!

If you are using serial#

The steps are the following:

  1. Connect the calculator to the PC using a USB to serial cable.

  2. Configure the calculator to use serial and data transfer, and place the calculator in standby mode.

  3. Find out which serial port your calculator is connected on.

  4. Run the transfer from the PC using p7 get.

For step 2, go to your link application, and do the following:

  • If a CABL (F4) submenu is available, go into it and press F2 to select “3-pin” (“3 broches” in French);

  • Go to the CAPT (F6) submenu and press F1 to select “Memory” (“Mémoire” in French).

  • Place your calculator in receiving mode by pressing F2 to select the RECV submenu.

For step 3, you must run the following command to discover all available serial ports p7 can use:

p7 list-devices

Unfortunately, if there are several ports, there is no easy way to find out which port is the right one to use; you will need to try each of them.

For step 4, you can run the transfer by using the following command:

p7 --com <your-serial-device> get MYADDIN.G1A

The file should have been successfully transferred from the calculator!
