Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Cannot copy files to the Axim

I thought somebody would have an answer for this, since I know I'm not alone with this problem... When I try to copy a file to the Axim's built-in storage, Activesync disconnects and I have to unplug and reseat the Axim to get it to reconnect. I can copy files from a CF card in the slot to the built-in storage. I can copy files from the built-in storage to my connected desktop computer with Activesync. Why can't I copy files to the Axim or an installed memory card? Oh, and to REALLY confuse things, this only happens with larger files like 1mb or bigger.

Re: 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.

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.

AXIM X3 Language


1. Download Axim X3 English (A01) setup, link from here --> http://www.slipstreamsolutions.co.uk...dates.htm#Dell
2. run the setup and make a backup ROM of youre x3, save someplace handy. I now have a file named A01-10240300GE.RIS
3. Run setup again, try to upgrade, get an error message - wrong language, etc but in that DELL folder, you now have a file named, in my case, P16R_A04080402EN.IMG
4. Open with a hex editor A01-10240300GE.RIS and copy all lines from 00 to 07
5. Open with a hex editor P16R_A04080402EN.IMG, select all lines from 00 to 07 and paste there the 7 lines from the first file, save with any name WITH .ris EXTENTION!
6. Run setup again, choose backup/restore and point to the modified .ris file. Now you have the same thing in that window, up and down side.
Do like a normal backup, DO NOT TOUCH THE PDA, THE PROCESS CAN TAKE UP TO 12 MINUTES!
The PDA restarts itself and, voila, you have axim x3 with a new language.

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

Deleting a recording


You can try this, as I have an Axim X-50V. Make sure that all of your programs are actually shut down. When you close something on the axim it really just goes to standby for the next time you open it. If the program is open that accesses the file, it wont let you delete it, because it is in use. More importantly, go to this site www.aximsite.com and the people there can answer ANY question you may have, and in great detail. Honestly, people there know so much about the axim line that Dell's phone support techs have referred people to use it!

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.

Problems with SD Slot on Axim


I once used Mazingo on another pocket pc. I had it set to use the CF card in it. It did the same thing it's doing on yours now. It caused word to take a long time to open and it loaded the pages in it really slow. I stopped using it for that reason. I think it may just me the Mazingo program.

Axim 5 upgrade path


Microsoft is well aware of the popularity of the iPAQ 3600 upgrades made available and that is one reason they mandated a Flash ROM with the new Pocket PC 2002 hardware. I am pretty sure MS will make an upgrade path available to the OEMs. It will then be up to Dell, Compaq and friends to make it available to the customer. Dell has always been good about that. As for the ROM size. The current Pocket PC 2002 image is 22MB. I have no idea how big the next one is or even when it will be out! Could be 2003 or 2004. MS has traditionally upgraded every 18 months or so on their PDA OS since 1998. IF that pattern holds true, 18 months from Oct 2001 would be spring 2003. We'll see. Ok, back to the ROM. Most Pocket PC 2002's have a 32MB ROM though a few have a 48. I think the 48 is primarliy to handle a big user file storage area in the ROM. I would be surprised if the next PPC increased more than 45% in size. It could though, but if I had to bet, though, I'd say 32MB would be plenty. Still - I'd look at the 48MB model for other reasons. 33% faster processor, 64MB RAM, included cradle.
