Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Unrecognized Card message

I have a dell Axim 5 that i absolutely love.

I have been surfing with the Ambicom 54g with no problems until today.

I removed the card, then inserted it for another session. Then a screen came up that said "Unrecognized Card". It goes on to say : "Enter the name of the device driver for this card. For more information, see the card manufacturer's documentation."

I checked the (Ambicom) user guide & device driver CD, but saw no name for the device driver. I tried to re-install the driver, but have had no different result.

Please help - I need to be able to surf with this device.

Thanks !

    hi termitehunt



    All the pins are straight. Ambicom suspects that the 54g is defective. It has been sent back to support for replacement and/or repair. They have been very accommodating so far.



    I'll keep the board posted.



    Thanks !

Look down the slot in the Axim. One of the pins is likely to be bent. If it can be straightened it will work again but may break.
I had this problem while under warranty. The unit was replaced but that was y e a r s ago.

My DellAxim doesn't recognize my Ambicom WL54-CF


All versions of activesync will handle this device providing it is powered by Microsoft Widows Mobile, Microsoft Windows CE, or a similar Microsoft Windows Powered OS. I am unaware of what your specific device utilizes; however I do know that all versions of ActiveSync will provide support to devices listed above.

The CD is most likely a support plug-in or a remote install for desktop to device software.

Please consult Dell's support and Drivers site for any additional information or pieces of software you may require. You should however, providing your desktop/laptop computer is using > Windows XP, be able to utilize limited access abilitys of your device (such as transfer of files) given Windows Mobile device recognition.

Please let us know if you require further information.

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

No wifi, how do i get on internet


This model of the Axim X30 does not have built in wi-fi capability. You need to purchase a 802.11 b/g Wireless SDIO card.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT INSERT SDIO CARD INTO AXIM X30 BEFORE INSTALLING DRIVERS.

1. Connect the Axim X30 to your computer.
2. Establish a connection between the two devices using Active-Sync.
3. Insert CR-ROM which ships with the SDIO card in your computer.
4. Follow instructions for installing Driver an Utility.
5. Install SDIO card into the SD slot on the Axim X30.

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 http://www.socketmobile.com/pdf/wireless-lan/go-wi-fi_spec.pdf 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.

Dell Axim 5 + TomTom navigator GPS ?


for those in the States at least, the economics. Many new vehicles here come with GPS and mapping options today for a nominal amount. I was also looking at this Garmin portable. I am not familiar with what is available in Europe though, I know the cellular technology is far ahead of the States. I just thought I would throw this out there. Good luck with your efforts.
