Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Instaling New Software

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?

Re: Instaling New Software

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)..

How to download a games???


Hello

can you tell me which device you want to download games to? if its the imate you have selected, you can download games from http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/

you download these to your computer, connect the pocket pc to the computer and run the setup file that came in the download, it will install the game or the program into the pocket pc.

you will need to have active sync or windows mobile device center installed on the computer.

let me know how you get along with it.
Thanks,
Ekse

I have HTC dimond phone how to donwlod free game in my phone


Compared to the iphone its harder, but not impossible. Just use google and search for example: Windows Mobile Games, Windows Mobile 6.1 Games, Windows Mobile Freeware, etc.

Examples (from google :P)
http://freewareppc.com/
http://www.smartphone-freeware.com/
http://www.pocketpccentral.net/software/ent-games.htm

Make sure you get games for Touchscreen Windows Mobile 6.1 (or sometimes called Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional) phones, or you can't play them properly!

Just went through my bookmarks:
Heres a neat list of games that use the g-sensor/accelerometer in the diamond.

Also heres a nice utility to make your screen rotate:

Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

Text, mms and call log


it is a known issue with blackberries....it means you have low memory....check your file free for memory by goign to options, status....it will be the file free (listed in bytes). if there is anything lower then 4,000,000 bytes (3 MB) then you have low memory. i sugest purchasing a memory card and transfering your data over there....if you do, figure out where that info is going by pressing the menu button (while still in status) and selecting the option database sizes...

if content store has the largest byte size, delete info like pictures, email, sms, mms (if you have any left) a possibly games and themes (to delete games and themes, you have to run the application loader wich is the program that is installed on the cd that came with your phone). if you need assitance with this, contact your service provider. like i said, its a known issue.....they will know how to fix it.

Dell axim x30


HI You have two ways: 1) Install the ActiveSync (Version 4.2 is recommended) PC Software with your PC first Next, you connect your Axim to your PC. Then you install the software or game into your PC. it will also install into your Axim automatically thru Sync process. 2) Or install the software or games into your External SD Memory card thru USB SD Card reader. Then put your sd memory card into your Axim and run the software or game. The 2GB or 4GB SD Card is reccommended since the game or software sometime is huge. I hope it is help. Regards, pingping
