Lost data due to battery failure. can i recover data

Don't worry.You definitely can get your data back. You can have a try on Data Recovery for mac which can recover all files that are lost, deleted, formatted or inaccessible from multiple devices on Mac. If you are running a PC, photo recovery for Windows is just needed, which enable you to recover not only photos, but also video and audio files.
Good Luck!

My Dell x51v Axim suddenly no longer communicates thru ActiveSync. Even though it is firmly connected with a USB cable, ActiveSync will no longer recognize it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled...


First try a "soft reset" - this clears all open programs and "reboots" the Pocket PC. When the Pocket PC powers back up, you'll start with all active programs closed and the device should be ready to use. This procedure is intended to reset the Pocket PC if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down.

This reset is also sometimes necessary after software is installed.

The X51v can be soft reset by pressing the recessed button on the rear of the unit above the battery.

Try to reconnect with your PC. If that fails - on the Axim - go to start - settings - connections - usb to pc and untick enable advanced network functionality - then see if you get a connect.

If you are still not getting a connection you will have to try a "hard" reset. However be aware that a "hard" reset wipes the RAM and returns the Pocket PC to its factory specs.

In effect, the Pocket PC will be just as it was when you purchased it.

All data entered, preferences set or software installed (other than ROM updates) on the Pocket PC after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to be transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center.

The hard reset is performed through the following procedure;

With the unit turned on, press and hold the power button at the top of the unit. While holding the down power button, use the stylus tip to press the "Reset" button mentioned above. Allow the screen to fade to off. Release both buttons. The unit will power back on and display a menu to confirm the hard reset request.

Make sure you have downloaded and are using the newest version of microsoft activesync.

Try the reconnect and let me know how you get on.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks.

Have toshiba pda/e740, have no drivers for pc

Try going to the website of your Operating System (ie, Windows, Mac, ect). I've only used Windows , butsee if you can download the Activesync software that you need there. The e740 was only available with Windows Pocket PC 2002, and will appearantly not sync to Vista PCs, however.
I will try to check back in a day or two, so let me know if this is of any help to you.

PC 2003 for e350

Microsoft recently introduced Windows Mobile 2003, which is the latest upgrade to the Pocket PC's operating system and built-in applications. The previous version of this software was referred to as "Pocket PC 3.0" or sometimes as "Pocket PC 2002" (for the year it was released). But the new naming scheme for all of the software built into the Pocket PC is meant to emphasize the relationship between the mobile device and Windows, Microsoft's classic brand. Unless otherwise indicated, whenever I refer to a Pocket PC in this article, I mean a device running Windows Mobile 2003. Not all of the features listed in this article are available for all Windows Mobile 2003 devices since some of these features require additional hardware such as a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or a keyboard. Along with Windows Mobile 2003, Microsoft released ActiveSync 3.7, an upgrade to the software used to synchronize data between the Pocket PC and the desktop PC. This article focuses on the new software from the perspective of an end-user—the improvements that make using a Pocket PC an easier, more enjoyable experience. In summary, Microsoft improved the operating system, enhanced communications capabilities, added some useful features to some standard applications, and included a new multimedia application and one new game. Windows Mobile 2003 uses the Windows CE 4.2 OS One of the major changes, and one that may not be obvious to the end user, is that Windows Mobile 2003 uses the new Windows CE 4.2 operating system. Previous versions of the Pocket PC used Windows CE 3.0. The 4.2 OS seems to be more efficient than the previous versions. Windows CE 4.2 also supports Internet Protocol version 6.0 (IPv6), which is being used now in Japan and will soon make its way to this country and the rest of the world. This will ensure that Pocket PC users are able to connect to the next generation of the Internet using the current standards. Added support for built-in and add-on keyboards Recognizing the success of add-on keyboards and the desire of some manufacturers to develop units with keyboards built in, Microsoft enhanced keyboard support in Windows Mobile 2003. When a Pocket PC with the new OS detects a keyboard (built-in or added), it automatically enables "menu mnemonics" (those underlined visual hints in a menu that tell you which keys to press). It also enables "Auto Menu Accelerators" (chorded keys such as Control-C for copy) so you can navigate even faster. On Pocket PCs with an integrated keyboard, navigation and application keys allow you to launch and move around in applications. Finally, the addition of the "SYM" key makes it easier to enter accented characters for foreign languages. Enhanced communications Windows Mobile 2003 makes the setting up of communications a lot easier. Plug in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a wired modem, or turn on your LAN connection and a "wizard" pops up to walk you through the process of configuring th
