Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

2 Answers

NO file transfers are working!

When I try to copy WMA files to the Axim with Media Player, or with Windows Explorer, I lose the PC/ Pocket PC connection every time. It locks up the application and then it disconnects. Only tiny files can be transferred without causing this problem. I have been working on this for days now, and nothing seems to work. I have the XP Service Pak 1 installed. Please, any help is really appreciated.

Re: NO file transfers are working!

I have an Axim and a Dell Optiplex GX150 running Win XP SP1, and I'm running ActiveSync 3.6. (I saw the same problems with ActiveSync 3.5 from the CD.) I deleted the partnership and re-synced. Outlook syncing works fine (for the most part, see below) but file transfers (installs) and Avantgo time out. There is some kind of timing issue going on here. Small data transfers work fine, but larger ones do not (large syncs, like the first sync after creating a partnership) also failed. My guess is that the Axim is not seeing data from the PC as often as it thinks it should and prematurely times out. There are a lot of people seeing this, Rollie. I'm not sure if it's a USB issue (one lady fixed it by buying a USB 2.0 board) or a driver issue or an ActiveSync issue or some combination, but there is definitely something going on here that a number of people are encountering.

Try deleting the partnership in ActiveSync on the PC, and then create a new partnership. I saw this problem, when I connected the first time to a PC. I tried connecting to a second PC, and had no problem. When I went back to the first, it required that I create a new partnership, and no problem with the connection.

How do you install downloaded programs on the Dell Axim X30?


Downloaded programs can be installed onto the Dell Axim X30 using Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync can be installed onto your computer using the Dell Companion CD which came with your Axim X30.
Once Microsoft ActiveSync is set up on your computer, if the program you downloaded came in an installer file, then double-clicking on the file will start the installation wizard and the software will be automatically transferred to the Axim.
If the program you downloaded did not come as an installer file, then double-clicking it will bring up an error message. In that case, use ActiveSync Explore to copy the program file to the Program Files folder on your Axim.

Have a dell axim x5 . how do you transfer files from the pc to ax


For exact to the point instructions we need specifics about what you want to do and with what but here goes...

Can't really help with the connect to the internet without more info than you provided. You need a wireless card, access to a wireless system and the drivers for the card. Even then it is not always consistant.

First I'm assuming you know that you need and have installed Activesync on the computer.

To transfer files to the Axim you simply drop them in the mobile my documents folder that is installed on the desktop when sync files is selected in Activesync. If you don't have it, open Activesync and select" options", check the "files" box. A desktop icon will be added.

If you mean install program files... most of the time you install on the desktop and it adds files to the x5 when you sync.

Sometimes you may need to transfer CAB files to the x5. In that case you will drag and drop the file on your x5 in my computer or on the icon on the desktop just like any other file move to another location

If your trying to sync with the wireless card, I am not familier with the method but in order to get the card to work it needs drivers that must be installed from the computer and through Activesync by wired connection first

No cd for Dell axim 30


This isnt too bad, if you are using windows vista, the CD is obsolete, use the syncing technology in mobile device center to access the storage card/drive inside the pda form your computer and you can do it that way. Windows XP: you can go to the microsoft website and get Activesync which will allow you to transfer files as well. If you are using a mac, I am sorry.

Transferring files w/o conversion?


You are going to have to use a SD reader/writer to transfer the files from your PC to the SD card and then you can use it that way.

Cannot copy files to the Axim


Try disconnecting your Axim from your PC, then open ActiveSync on your PC, and delete the partnership. Next, reconnect your Axim X5, and go through the connection wizard again, and create a new partnership.

To copy word documents, simply connect your device to your computer, click "Explorer" in ActiveSync, and then transfer the word document from your desktop to your Pocket PC. ActiveSync will do the conversion from Word to Pocket Word for you. As for wireless internet service, you need a wireless Compact Flash card and data service. Sprint is one of the few companies that offers this, and there is also the Pocket Spider from Enfora which can connect on some wireless networks.
