Yes and it doesn't look as though Acorn are going to produce a
pocket book based on the 3c until at least the end of the year.

I've had no problem using my 3c and Acorn via the PC card and Psiwin
1.1. I presume you have checked that the baud rates between computer
and Psion are the same? I use 57600bd. Presumably the 3c serial port
is enabled and not on IR as well? I find backups are quite quick on my
system. The 3c is a great machine and to be honest I've had little
problem getting used to getting to grips with Acorn > PC > Psion
data transfers. Incidentally you can get hold of 3c serial cables
without having to fork out for PsiWin now.
Incidentally a few folk on the Psion newsgroups who have bought
backlit versions of the 3c have reported poor displays. At least one
UK dealer is selling US (ie backlit) version of the 3c.
