You're not alone! Virtually every ipaq rx3715 gets this problem at one time or another. Unfortunately, it is a massive memory issue. Be prepared to potentially lose all of your data, including programs. My suggestion would be to back up your ipaq before you do this. I do not know if the backup retains the memory error, but what I would do is back it up, perform the fix, and then restore the data back onto the ipaq. If your file store problem is fixed, there you go! If the problem comes back upon restoring the pocket pc, then unfortunately you will lose all data and programs in order to fix the memory, and that will be a personal choice. For most of us, the ipaq simply freezes up upon entry into the file store, so consider yourself lucky that they simply do not delete.

Here is the step-by-step process of how to fix your problem.

1. Download GER and ENG ROMs (latest) from HP's support site
2. Unpack both
3. Cancel the automatic flash procedure.
4. Locate the EnterBootLoader.exe file in the folder of the unpacked GER update
5. Copy it to PPC
6. Run it from the PPC
7. Run the ROMUpdateUtility.exe file from the desktop to start flash procedure.
Then you have a German-language PPC
8. Locate the EnterBootLoader.exe file in the folder of the unpacked ENG update
9. Repeat steps 5-7 for the English update
You're done




Remember, you're not alone! We all had the same problem.

an .exe file is an EXEcutable file, it is the file that starts a program. It is not the backup data, but it may be the program that captures it.

Your .pbf files are indeed backup data files by Paragon backup and recovery program.

So, you would open Paragon using its .exe file and it backs up the data to .pbf files. To restore the files, you would open Paragon, and point to the last .pbf file or files to restore.

And yes, you could have Paragon Backup and Recovery on both machines and save the backups to a USB memory stick. What is on the memory stick can be accessed by Paragon on both machines. Make sure it is data only, rather than system files unless each computer is absolutely identical in model and spec.

RTM?
read page 27 , carefully and the gravity of these words

"Keep the battery charged.
The programs and files you install or create are stored in volatile RAM memory. If the battery
completely discharges, all user-installed programs and user data files
created will be erased and you will have to reinstall them. To prevent
losing valuable programs and files, keep the battery always charged.
Optionally, you can store a limited number of programs and files in the
iPAQ File Store folder so that if the battery completely discharges, they
will not be lost."
the store, is a NVram?, not flash. and the STORE has a battery
what is the chances of any 13year old battery still good.(zero?>)

Resetting the Device

Sometimes there is a need to reset your Pocket PC. Resetting the
device is known as performing a "soft" or "hard" reset.

Performing a Soft Reset

A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any
programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data within
a running application before performing a soft reset.
Perform a soft reset to:
■ Stop all running applications
■ Install a new application
■ Restart the Pocket PC if it stops responding

To perform a soft reset:

1. Locate the recessed Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ
Pocket PC.
2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button.
The Pocket PC restarts and displays the Today screen.




Performing a Hard Reset

user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM
(Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have

CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data
and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to
lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ

and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery

Trouble formatting card


Did you happen to write files to one of the cards from the computer, or delete files from the card through the computer before that happened? This problem has been known to happen in such cases. Remember to only *copy* files from the card to the computer using the card reader, and only delete files using the camera. Anyway, try turning off the camera, pulling and re-inserting the card. If it doesn't work - try it a few more times. If it still doesn't work and you've got nothing to lose, try deleting any files you may have written to the card using the computer, and then try again. But the fact that the new card didn't work as well might mean that it won't help. Good luck.
