    I have some problemas searching Zebra RW420 from a PDA Windows Mobile 6. I connect first and everything it's ok, I select a port of the PDA and it's ok, too, but the thing it's that whenever I am going to beam a simple file txt, the PDA starts to search and it doesn't discover it, so I can't beam anything.

    Any suggestions!

I don't if this matters for Windows Mobile or not but there is no driver listed for it based on the website:

The problem is that Zebra printers use a PCL language to print with. Forms have to be programmed into the computer being used. Then they are downloaded into the application you are printing with.
These printers are designed for label and invoice use. The applications designed for them send the data over. They use them for delivery services to print with. I know bakery trucks use these in the vehicle. There not designed for straight text printing.
If you have ever seen label printers that they use for shipping out Fed Ex and UPS, that's what this printer does.
If you go to this link here you can get an idea as to how they are programmed:

If you have any questions about programming forms for them, let me know. I had to go to a special school in Atlanta several years ago to learn how to do that.

Acer N 300 use with Vista


In case you still have not been able to solve your problems I can help you!

1. Just connect the PDA and your Vista laptop the way you used to with WinXP (cradle, USB). The PDA will be detected as "Windows Mobile Device" and you should be automatically asked by Vista for sync configuration. You will have to get used to the "Windows Mobile Device" interface.

2. There is no official upgrade from WM5 to WM6. But if you surf to, there will be help for you.

Casio not reading CF card after using it in Desktop PC

Try another CF card/accessory in the slot to determine if the CF socket on the E-125 is not damaged. Also run scandisk on it while plugged into the card reader on yopur PC. There have been issues with 128 mb CF cards manufactured by SanDisk (who are OEM suppiers to several other brand names also ) randomly malfunctioning. Inspect the pins in the CF slot on the PDA to see if any of the pins has been bent/corroded. Hope this helps.
