First download and install winrar. Then extract files to a new folder using winrar, then open the driver installer file, that is an exe file.

Here is winrar: WinRAR archiver

Have a dell axim x5 . how do you transfer files from the pc to ax


For exact to the point instructions we need specifics about what you want to do and with what but here goes...

Can't really help with the connect to the internet without more info than you provided. You need a wireless card, access to a wireless system and the drivers for the card. Even then it is not always consistant.

First I'm assuming you know that you need and have installed Activesync on the computer.

To transfer files to the Axim you simply drop them in the mobile my documents folder that is installed on the desktop when sync files is selected in Activesync. If you don't have it, open Activesync and select" options", check the "files" box. A desktop icon will be added.

If you mean install program files... most of the time you install on the desktop and it adds files to the x5 when you sync.

Sometimes you may need to transfer CAB files to the x5. In that case you will drag and drop the file on your x5 in my computer or on the icon on the desktop just like any other file move to another location

If your trying to sync with the wireless card, I am not familier with the method but in order to get the card to work it needs drivers that must be installed from the computer and through Activesync by wired connection first

Can't install drivers for WIFI card


I purchased a VeriFone 11 Mbps 802.11b Wireless Compact Flash Adapter card for my Axim X5. I put the disc and the wifi card in my laptop and I can get on the internet. But can't seem to get it going in the Axim. It always reads "Unrecognized Card". Tried ActiveSynce and putting the drivers on a different Flash card. No luck..

Looking for a Wi-Fi card for a Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC


According to http://www.socketmobile.com/pdf/wireless-lan/go-wi-fi_spec.pdf it looks like you have to have Windows Moblie 5 or 6 or Windows CE.

The Axim X5 can only go up to Windows Mobile 2003 (Mobile 5 is the one after this).

My suggestion is sell the REALLY great Socket card and get one that works with your X5 (you have either Pocket PC 2002 or Windows Mobile 2003) If you Ebay search Dell TrueMobile, you'll find the card that works with either.

I need mine too, so it looks like we'll have a bidding war.

Installing San Disk Wireless Lan Card for Dell AXIM 5


Actually the reason why it's saying that is because that card is not compatible with the Dell Axim X5 because if it was you wouldn't get that response. I'm still looking for a Wi-Fi card for mine as well because I ordered the P500 Wi-Fi compact flash card from Dell then come to find out it wasn't compatible with the Axim X5, it was discontinued.

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.

Connectivity/activesync and network issues


When using wireless lan with PPC, there are some experience shere with you. 1. You must do an "Reset" after the first time of installing wireless driver into your DELL AXIM. Otherwise, the driver would not work. 2. Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 only can allow one source to access the internet. It can't access internet via the USB and wireless at the same time. Thus, it is more batter way to leave your AXIM alone instead of insert on cradle when you try to access internet via wireless lan. 3. Some of the wireless's CE driver are based on StrongArm, 206MHz, not PXA250, 400MHz. It will got problem when the wireless try to initiate the link between base station and PPC. Try the following step: (i) Make sure you have been install the wireless driver. (ii) Remove your wireless from CF slot. (iii) start->setting->power->processor select "PowerSave" mode and apply it. (iv) Plug wireless into CF slot (v) If you can get an dynamic IP or access internet, you can repet step 3, but select "Auto" mode. Hoping these information can solve your problem.

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.
