Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
I purchased a game called "Word Games To Go" and can't seem to get it installed properly. When I run the setup, I get 3 different options for Pocket PC (either Pocket PC-Casio, Pocket PC-Compaq, or Pocket PC-HP). I know that obviously the Dell Axim is too new to be included in this list but I figured that one of them must work on the Axim. Nothing on the package indicated those three brands only, it stated that it worked with both Pal and Pocket PC Handhelds, so I assumed it should work with the Axim. I followed the installatoin procedures, installing it into the Pocket PC My Documents folder, then did a synch. But the game will not show up on my Axim anywhere. Anyone have any ideas for what I might be doing wrong?

Don't know about that software specifically, but of those 3 choices, try the Compaq. The Axim's processor is backwards compatible with the one in the Compaq. (Well, it's the same as the one in the LATEST model HP, but usually when you see those three choices, it's to signify the 3 different processors each had. HP's latest model used the same as the Compaq, but their older models didn't..) Hopefully they aren't checking for specific devices, but just processor type.. Now, there is some software that is written specifically for the Compaq Ipaq because of it's video chipset, but not much.. (Tomb Raider comes to mind)..
