I bought a cheap Axim X5 PDA and I believe it is missing the top "door" but I am not sure, as I bought it from ebay, and don't know anything else about it. Also, it needs a back up battery cover. I am...

Dell Axim5 Top Door is for Compact Flash car. the Battery Backup is the one to maintain the memory alive, but if you still have main battery good is supposed the memory remain until you go out of battery. I have one with some reason the battery backup do not function, so I have to backup all data.

My Axim X30 would not turn on using battery power but would turn on when connected through charger adapter.
1. Connect AC adapter directly to the charger adapter and then to the Axim X30 and to the electrical outlet.
2. Charge battery until power button is solid green.
3. Press the power button to power on.
4. Remove cable from cable connector leaving the cable connector connected to the Axim X30. The Axim X30 will remain powered on.
5. Turn the Axim X30 off.
6. Turned the Axim X30 on using battery power.
7. Remove cable connector from Axim X30.

Can I use Standard 4G or 8G SD or Cf cards in a Dell Axim X5?

SD cards must be SD not SDHC, there is not an SDHC driver for the X5. You can find regular SD cards up to 4G.

CF is no problem, all flash based CF cards will work. Microdrives can be problematic.

Good Eevening :

You could get original disk from ebay at times but all you need is the Activesync that can be downloaded from Microsoft. Get Active sync 4.2. The newer ones do NOT work with the X5.

Good luck with the wireless card. The Axim does not play well with many of them. (sometimes works but mostly not) Try drivers from d Link and be sure to remove the old drivers first.

Axim Battery

The battery that comes with Axim is the standard 1440mAh; an extended battery with something like 3400mAh is indeed available as an option. According to some reviews of Axim, the standard battery is good for 8-10 hours of normal usage. One review said they played MP3s non-stop for 6 hours 22 minutes before the MP3 player stopped because of not enough power, but Axim still had another 16% on the battery which was good enough for about another full hour of standard usage. Audio and video will both cut down on how much you can expect from the battery, video much more so than audio. If you are planning on watching full length movies on an airplane from a 1GB Microdrive, I think getting the extended battery would be a good idea. I'll give this a try myself as soon as I get my Axim, which should be... drum roll... the day before Xmas, according to Dell.

Secure Digital Wireless card?

No. The secure digital on the Axim only supports memory cards. If you want to use anything else it will have to be for the cf in the Axim. Devices for wifi, bluetooth, and modems are more readily available for cf and are lower priced at the moment too.
