It was working fine. Then I installed the new version of PDA Windows (whatever the last one was...). After a week it had trouble booting, and I would have to turn it off and do it again. THEN it won't finish booting at all.
*On the first screen when it turns on with the "Dell" logo, the "load bar" goes all the way to like 90% and then stops. I've hard reset it several times and nothing, it just keeps doing the same thing. It will never boot/load windows and so I can't do anything.... PLEASE HELP!
Since it gets to the 90% boot phase, you should be able to synce with the computer at that point. If so, then downgrade to pocket pc 2003 software which you can find at
Once done, make sure your pda will boot. If effective, re-install windows mobile 5.0 and try it again!
(Last attempt b4 contacting manufacturer...)
I had simmilar problem with this on my pda at one time too. Sometimes it is as easy as removing the battery, pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds, then putting everything back in and reboot it.

The WUSB54GSC adapter had been out of production for a while...the last driver update was for Windows XP in 2008 (for Version 2 devices). You should carefully examine the device to see if it is Version 1 or Version 2, as this is necessary when visiting the driver page.
If you're trying to use the adapter on a Windows 7 machine, and Windows 7 does not automatically install the driver, then you're pretty much out of luck as Linksys does not supply a Windows 7 driver for this unit. They don't list a Vista driver, either, although often XP drivers will transfer to Vista without difficulty.
So...if you're trying to install it on a Vista machine, try downloading/installing the XP driver for your device version...it MAY work. If that does not work, or if it's a Win 7 machine, time for a new adapter.
Most new computers these days (at least laptops) have wireless built-in and don't need a USB adapter. I'm assuming, therefore, that you're using this on a desktop. If so, and you need a new one, very good quality ones can be had at WalMart for around $20. Just be sure whatever you buy is compatible to your operating system. It will be printed on the packaging.
OK, this is pretty simple really, just use a Windows install DVD/CD now when, at the part where windows asks WHERE you want to install, install to ANOTHER DIRECTORY, Say WINDOWS1, whatever, then when you finish and reboot, you will now have a Menu, that will ask and allow you to select to Boot EITHER ONE from the menu, usually the LAST one installed is the FIRST one on the Menu list, this can be altered if required, by Editing the Boot.ini file, OF the last installed Windows version, here, one can then set the order for whichever one, one wishes to boot first.
Below is a tutorial on how to do a "Parallel install"
has windows been registered.
if so your gonna have to reinstall windows.
make sure os disk is in cd tray ..boot up...choose install (not repair) sys check says os already installed continue install or repair...at this point choose repair..this way any files or downloaded programs wont be lost.
Normally for when you connect any device to pc using USB port, windows detects it. Sometime it may take time.
Few initial things you may check....
1) You must have your PDA in ON condition
2) If PDA is not getting connected on port, try connecting to other USB port (assuming that pc normally have more than one USB port)
3) Make sure the cable that you are using between PDA to PC is working properly (normally you can check this by using other cable)
4) If you have intalled some anti virus program on your pc then check the settings of same.
5) last but not least check the settings of window's firewall (part of OS)
If everything of above is fine then either USB ports of pc or of PDA might not be working.
This is a not a Boot Camp - but a cheap way to get Fusion V.2 which is the best run-XP-and-OSX-both-at-one-time program.
1. Do NOT use Parallels software b/c it is slow, clunky, and a memory hog - this is experience speaking :)
2. get a USED copy of VMWare Fusion VERSION 1 (this is not the newest version - but hold on!) from ebay/Amazon whatever - but don't pay over 20.00 (I paid 17.95 shipping included)!
3. Install the older (version 1) VMWare Fusion and then go to the VMWare Fusion website to get a free download of Version 2. They offered this free to all owners of version 1.
Now something to think about. When I had VMWare Fusion 1 on my machine, it literally took 3 seconds to load Windows XP (and some people wonder why I have a Mac!). Upon installing version 2, it takes 10 seconds - and I do not know why!
BTW - make sure this free update is still available
This works b/c a lot of surplus V1's are being sold cheap. It is s totally legit option b/c the company is offering to any legit owners of version 1.
Sometimes you have to un-install an older version of a program via the windows installer to fix the problem..
The two programs.. old & new co-exist for some things, but clash with others.. un-install both (if possible) via windows installer (control panel - add/remove programs) then re-install the new version.
