Re: Problem wiht the files browser

Let's clarify a few things, when you try to access files on your PDA in file explorer or within a program it will not let you open it. I would try updating your bios and see what happens.  Here's a link to where you can get it.

Also try browsing the files from your computer.  Also try starting fresh.  This is a really odd problem.  What programs do you use to try and open files?  Good luck with your issue.

HP iPAQ 210 calendar and contacts won't open

Somehow, the file that stores all of your contact and calendar data got corrupted, and the Calendar program crashed when opening. To fix the problem, rename the pim.vol file on the system root (it's a hidden file; I use Total Commander for file browsing on my device, which shows hidden files by default) to something like pim.vol.bak. You should now be able to open your Calendar, Contact, and ActiveSync again.

I don't know if you are still around and checking this, but it came up at the top of a google search, so hopefully, anyone else who finds this problem will be able to see the solution without having to hard reset their device.

How do I download from P.C. to Palm P.D.A.

Here are the steps you need to do to accomplish that.

Open up your Palm Desktop software. Click on "Quick Install". Another window will open up. Click on "add". From there you wil want to find the file where your bible software is and click on that. Make sure that you add it to the pda and not the memory card. You will be able to see that in the add window. Once you have that then you just have to do a hotsync and your program will be installed on your pda. Best wishes.

Can't remove programs

When you try to remove certain programs on the PDA the following message may appear and in some cases the program will remain no matter how many times you try to remove it: Due to the nature of the PDA and the fact that the operating system is resident in memory at all times, some .DLL files cannot be stopped and removed. For example, the program below uses a .DLL file to run a program on the Start screen and is therefore always running. The only way around this is to rename the file via Active Sync. In Active Sync on the computer, click on Explore. You may have to wait a short while until Mobile Device is displayed, then follow the program file to where the uninstall file is located, i.e. \Program Files\OmegaOne\BattPack\BatBar.dll. If you try and delete the .DLL file the following message will appear because the file is in use at the time: Select BattBar.dll file and rename this, making sure the file format has the .*** suffix and is different from any other valid format, for example, do not choose .jpeg / .mpeg. In this case we have renamed the file Once the file is renamed and saved, remove the PDA and soft reset. The program linked to the .DLL will no longer be present on the PDA. You can now re-dock the PDA, synchronise and go back to Remove Programs and successfully delete the file.
