Symbol Pocket PC ppt2846 software install

I have a Symbol Pocket PC ppt2846 with a cradle and a serial cable. I'm tryning to connect to a laptop so I can move some software to it and install it. I'm having trying connecting to it, and I'm not sure how to install software on it once I am connected. I'm not seeing much help in the form of product manuals or support from the symbol website or forums. Can someone direct me to some information that can help me?

use TCM to configure the software you require to upload (and where it goes)

then use the hex loader to upload to the terminal.

Options for Adding Serial Ports The serial port is prevalent on PC's ...


Options for Adding Serial Ports
The serial port is prevalent on PC's as well as scores of industrial, scientific and consumer devices, making it a convenient starting point for communications. Since RS-232 itself is only suited to short connections (50 ft. max.) many applications require that it be adapted to fit requirements. RS-422, typically used for extending RS-232 communications, provides full duplex communications between two devices. It can also provide one way communications from one master to several slaves. RS-485 communications standard allows cable lengths up to 4000 feet. It also provides very high noise immunity. Multidrop connections up to 32 different nodes can be made over a single twisted pair cable along with a signal ground connection.
This article summarizes the choices a system designer has when adding a serial (RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485) communications device. There are many different ways to add additional serial ports to your Desktop PC, Palm, or Laptop PC. USB, PCMCIA, PCI and ISA are some of the methods that will be discussed.
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) provides a high data rate and Hot Swap connection for PCs, providing an easy connection to a wide variety of multimedia and network USB devices. Generally considered to be for home or office use, USB is finding its way into Industrial applications.
PCMCIA Serial Ports are yet another way to add serial ports to a PC that has PCMCIA Slots available. Most Laptops today offer only one (if any at all) DB9 type serial ports. A PCMCIA Serial Card is a good way to add a serial port (or ports) to any laptop that is low on available serial ports (RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485).
PCI Cards are becoming more popular as a way to add serial ports to desktop PC's. PCI type slots are becoming the "norm" in standard PC's today, and PCI Serial Cards are an excellent way to add serial ports. The standard Desktop PC may only come with one serial port standard (if any serial ports at all). PCI Serial Cards use Software Drivers to address the ports to the PC.
ISA Cards are yet another way to add serial ports to the older desktop PC's. ISA type slots are becoming scarce in standard PC's today, but are still an excellent way to add serial ports. The ISA Cards are typically addressed using dip switches and shunts or jumpers to set IRQ's for each port. No Software Drivers are required with ISA style serial cards.
Palm OS PDA's may be connected to RS-422 or RS-485 data circuits using Palm adapters. These adapters offer total portability for collecting data and field service chores. The Palm device and the adapter will usually slip into a shirt pocket. Some models use the PDA's connecting cable, some include a cable and some are cradles that allow the PDA to nest in place and connect directly to the Palm base socket. PalmTerm Freeware allows you to transmit and receive data from the Palm serial port.

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50 and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to a computer using a sync cable.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync connection is successful.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

How to connect pc to motorola pda mc 9090


I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this question. You might want to give a little more detail. Do you have a single slot cradle? You'll want to get one if you don't have one. Then you connect the cradle to the PC using a standard USB cable.

To be able to browse the files on the PDA from the PC, and copy files to it, install software on it through the USB connection, etc, you will want to download and install ActiveSync on your PC. Just google ActiveSync and you will find it on Microsoft's web site. It is a free download.

Thanks,

Can I upgrade a Symbol PDT8100 from Pocket PC 3.0 to Pocket PC 2003 or maybe MC50? I would like to do it myself. Thx.


PDT8100 can be upgreded to pocket pc 2003, however you will need to purchase a license to do this. Once you have the license, you will get the required files to update it.

You will need a cradle , cable and power supply to do this.

Help active sync will stay in limbo attempting to connect to cradled axim


Does your system detect the handheld? After you connect the cradle or cable to the computer, then you should be prompted to install drivers for the handheld. Make sure that Dell Pocket PC appears in the Device Manager.

Dell Axim doesn’t support serial connections?


There is another thread on this board where a number of people talked about serial connections and alternatives. I also want to connect my existing AirMap 100 GPS via serial cable. The Dell moderator (Rollie) pretty much put an end to that thread by stating: "A serial cable is not available @ this time and when one will be available is unknown"

Cassiopia EM500 sync issue


First of all ensure that the port selected on the EM-500 for PC connection is the same as your actusl connection - i.e. USB or serial. There were some problems with the EM-500 cradle which would not allow communication to be established between the PDA & the PC/Laptop. Contact Casio for rectification. It is done free of charge.

E-125 and Cradle/Internet access......


I don't know about the craddle - but I guess it should work too. I use a USB cable - and it works okay. You need to run MS ActiveSync (install v. 3.5 - it's better), and when you see a green circle in your taskbar, you can try and access Internet (your desktop should, of course, be connected to Internet).
