Question:
I ordered and downloaded English in the Streets Go to another website with more information. I am a user of SuperMemo for Windows CE Go to another website with more information and am now trying to install it onto my Pocket PC (Casio E115). However, TXT files that are shipped with the mix do not seem to be enough to make my databases work. SuperMemo CE asks for SDB files. Is there a way to convert TXT to SDB files so I could use them on my Pocket PC?
Answer:
Yes, you would just need to import the content of individual text files into newly created database. In SuperMemo (for Windows CE), choose File : Import-Export : Import Q&A and provide path to a given text file
 
 
Question:
What is the purpose of so-called compatibility table and what is the meaning of its individual icons?
Answer:
The table provides information about collection's compatibility with different versions and formats of the SuperMemo software. There are three distinct icons that explain whether a collection can be used with a given version of SuperMemo or not. They come as follows:
    (green check) - a collection is compatible with a given version of SuperMemo
    (orange check) - a collection is compatible with a given version of SuperMemo but only in its limited version (usu. all items that use hypermedia features are removed)
    (red cross) - a collection is not compatible with a given version of SuperMemo
