The Medion S3747 is a PNA that runs Windows CE 5. It has a
trans-reflective 3.5" screen, pressure sensor, fluxgate compass
and a large, removable battery. There is a micro-SD slot under
the battery. It will run LK8000 or XCSoar from a micro-SD card.
If it is connected to a PC with the supplied USB cable, both its
internal flash memory and the micro-SD card can be accessed as
separate mass storage devices.
Installing and working with XCSoar
Install XCsoar on an empty micro-SD card as described in
Creating a shell.ini file, but do
not create a shell.ini file on the SD card because the
Medion S3747 doesn't use it. Then do the following:
- Install the micro-SD card in the Medion s3747. To do this
you take the back off and remove the battery. The micro SD slot
is at the back of the battery compartment at the back of the
long side wall nearest the battery contacts. Push the micro-SD
card into its slot. A second push makes it pop out, so make
sure its properly locked in. Then put the battery into its
holder and screw the case back on.
- Connect the Medion to a computer via USB and start it. When
the 'comms' symbols come up, tap the blue button on the
- You now have the Medion's internal flash memory connected
as a mass storage device.
- Download cecmd2.exe and copy it to
the root of the Medion's flash memory.
- Rename MENU.exe (the Medion original start menu) to another
name, say MENU-original.exe, in case you need it again and
rename cecmd2.exe to MENU.exe. Running MENU-original.exe shows
the screen the Medion uses to select the original Medion
- Shut down the Medion, unplug and restart it. You should now
see the Total Commander screen. This looks rather like Windows
Explorer and works similarly. Total Commander is a shareware
Explorer work-alike for Windows CE.
