Dear Hideyuki,

Thankyou for writing to us.

The HP48GX calculator is rather fussy about the characters that
may appear in the names of files stored on the calculator.
I suspect that in your case, HPComm is saying that it doesn't
like the the 2-byte characters used on Japanese computers.

When HPComm detects that the calculator did not like a
certain name, it offers you the chance to transfer that file
under another name.  Although I haven't tested this, I suspect
that there is a bug in this area of HPComm.  (We also received
another similar report from Japan this week).

Could you do me a favour please?  Could you send to the
hpcomm@xxxxxxxxxxxx mailing list, the file you are trying
to transfer to the calculator please?

From this I can find out the name of the file, and exactly
why HPComm is not behaving correctly.

Look forward to hearing from you soon!
