Question about Symbol MC50 Portable Terminal

2 Answers

Symbol MC50 My Mc50 keeps popping up an "Unrecognized card error" asking for the device driver for this card. For Information, please see the card manufacturer's documentation. Network Card in Socket 1 is listed in the text entry box with an OK or CANCEL button beneath. I've tried rebooting, and a Hard reset. Also, the wireless radio isn't visble in the bottom right of the screen.

Why can't my MC3190G connect to my Windows 7 machine via Windows Mobile 6.1?

Hi, for Win 7, you cannot use activesync, you need to use the Mobile Device Centre, also from Microsoft, free download.
This will load the drivers into Windows7 such that it will recognise the Symbol/Motorola MC3190 when it is docked to an attached cradle
Note: for some applications you could previously set the "Guest Only" flag in Regedit for an ActiveSync and the handheld would not ask about the connection each time (assuming you do not want sync email) but in win7 it will ask each time.

RF driver failed to load

It can only be one of two things.

Less likely but also will cost you nothing, try and reload LWP and UPD but don't forget to use the comman FLSHFMT on both E drive and D drive first.

More likely is that the radio card of the terminal is busted or might have become lose as the internal radio connector was always a bit flakey on this device. You can try removing the 6 screws on the plastic cover, open it and unplug and plug again the radio card.

MC50 scanning engine is who you should goto since it is a enterprise device. Not many people have the dev kits for these devices.

I only have experience with mc9000. I know when it refuses scan (or activate) is has to do with the software being used to communicate with the scanner itself. Re flashing the device usually fixes it.

Download active sync and you will not need drivers. It is recommended that you download version 4.5.
