What does the message "could not find a sending device"
It means that Beamer on the AlphaSmart device is ready to receive a
beam from another device, but it is not sensing any device that is
What do I do if the file I'm receiving is too big?
The device receiving the beam will accept as much data as it can and
truncate the file at the point where it can't receive any more. To work
around this, the person beaming the file should break up the file into
separate files and beam them separately.
My buddy beamed an AlphaWord Plus file to me, but Beamer
didn't let me choose a workspace to put it in. It automatically
put it in a new file. What happened?
What likely happened is that AlphaWord Plus on your AlphaSmart
device hadn't been "initialized," meaning it hadn't set itself up yet to
receive beamed files. This can happen if you have a brand new Neo,
or if you have a new installation of AlphaWord Plus on either an
AlphaSmart 3000 or a Neo, and you started Beamer before ever
starting up AlphaWord Plus.
All you need to do to initialize AlphaWord Plus is to start it. Do this
before you use Beamer again, and Beamer should give you the
opportunity to choose a workspace the next time it's receiving a file.
