Re: HP ipaq rx3715

Thanks wormy22, I do appreciate your advice, any different view on a proble may prove to work. so far those items haven't. my next step is to do a full hard reset and then use activesync but pick guest so as to not sync to the pda, it may allow me to xfer the software on the sd chip instead of the main memory area. Is there any way to upgrade this HP Ipaq 3715 to win mobile 5. when you upgarde the OS on a PDA does it have to be provided by the manufacture ie HP for HP etc. Or will any  windows mobile 5 cd work? like from Microsoft?? insted of from HP. or are they specific to no only the brand but exact model??

Thanks for the follow-up

Re: HP ipaq rx3715

Have you tried other SD cards?  The box is uncheck for default install folder?  Maybe update the device.

Ipaq 4100 problem syncronizing with outlook on new laptop

you are now using outlook 2003 , probably cache , this means all the email is on your laptop. when you sync it will sync all the email (thousands). initialise your ppc (back to factory default). set up the sync via usb cable. then sync via bluetooth . then you are fully sync. now setup an auto backup of your email data (daily). if after some time , you have sync problem again , initialise the ppc, restore from backup and you are back to sync (last full backup). try this , you will never need to do it all again.

IPAQ HX4700 won't sync with desk top

Hello, Please try the following steps. They could help with your problem. First open this link to hp's download page for your PDA. Then select your pda's operating system (windows mobile 2003se or windows mobile 5). then from the following page select the ROM update and download it. Try to master reset the pda (you may find informations about this in the user manual). After you reset the device, don't tap anything on the screen (don't follow the welcome wizard or anything it asks you to do). Just connect the usb cable to the computer. Activesync may try to connect to the pda, may fail or things like this. It doesn't matter what does it do as long as it does something. Now open the ROM file you downloaded and press "next" untill the process begins. If the setup asks you to reset the device or things similar, don't do it. Just continue with the setup and "tell" the program you already done that. Make sure your battery is charged before doing this. Also make sure the pda and the computer are left alone these 10 minutes (that's how long it takes to do the ROM update). If the ROM update fail, please post a comment and give me the error message and code. We will take it from there. Also please inform me what version of windows are you using and eventually an email adress for me to send various service programs required for the next stage (if the rom update fails to work). Good luck, Bogdan

2. Uninstall Activesync if you have it installed
3. Restart your computer
4. Re-install activesync
5. Restart your PPC
6. When asked to connect the PPC connect it via USB

Rx3715 several problems

If you have only flashed the English ROM, not any other language ROMs, read the following paragraphs. If you have flashed other language ROMs but not the German one try flashing the German one instead, there is something about it that clears the ppc out better. If you have flashed the German one, do not read on, as it will be an insult to your intelligence.

Most problems can be fixed with a ROM correction. Unfortunately, this is unachievable by simple re-flashing the English ROM. Certain other versions of the ROM (usually German is used) contain different enough sets of code (possibly different firmware?) to force the ppc to truly reset, unlike what happens when simply flashing the US ROM or changing to ROMS that use similar enough coding. Try flashing the German ROM and THEN reverting to the English. This tends to solve most any major iPaq issue.

Replaced " Jornada" to " iPAQ" - How to keep/recovery all datas

So if you sync your old one to OUTLOOK on your PC, I would simply install the new Activesync and create a new partnership for your Ipaq and the data should be transferred.

Cannot copy large files to my SD card

Yes , the Activesync connection is not reliable for large files. You really would be best to get a USB card reader, also it would be MUCH, MUCH faster.

H5555 sync problem

When you attach your ipaq, you should be able to go into My Computer and view the ipaq as a removable storage device, seeing the actual files and folders located on your ipaq. I would attempt to transfer the files via copy and past if Activesync cannot do it. If that solves the problem then its simply that Activesync is encountering some sort of memory overflow, if it still cannot sync then there is a problem with transfer protocol its using.

Rx3715 - Help needed!

For data files, you navigate to them with File Explorer, tap and hold on their names, a pop up appears. Choose Move to, and then you'll be asked for a location. But data files probably should be moved to a storage card, rather than the File Store. As for programs, it's risky just to move them from one location to another. The safer course is to Remove them (Settings -- System -- Remove Programs) and re-install them to the new location. When installing via ActiveSync, when the installer asks: "Install to default location," answer No, and you'll get a menu asking where. Choose File Store from the drop down. Good luck.
