Re: wireless compact flash card installation on dell axim...

Go to Wal Mart and buy a 1 gig SD card----- and then buy a AmbiCom 54G wireless CF card. Works perfectly in my X5.

I have a dell axim x5 and I am trying to use a veo photo traveler

I downloaded the lastest and greatest driver from and now the camera card works in the compact flash slot. Now life can go on as normal. birds will chirp and rain will fall in troubleshooter land because now all has been put right once again, but then again nothing technical works without solving underlying problems so stay alert because nothing lasts forever! OK, stop goofing off and get back to work! 8-)

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 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.

Pda newbie - memory question

If you are referring to the difference between Compact Flash and Secure Digital memory, then there is no difference, except the format. By providing two different memory slots, you are able to install more memory, or use one slot for memory, while using the second slot for other peripherals, like network cards, modems, or wireless cards.
