HP Pocket 2003. Need to restore information but not recognising profile. Where do I find the files on PC to copy mobile devise. Using XP student edition

Posted by on

  • griffyn Mar 29, 2008

    You have missed the point. The device is syncronising with the PC. To restore the files from the PC to the device I have stated guest/restore/profile/pocket_pc. The software states the profile is invalid/not recogised and therefore will not restore. How do I identify the files on the PC that I need to restore onto the device. Where are the files stored? Once identified I will copy them onto the device

This document lists synchronization issues when using ActiveSync. ActiveSync is compatible with Windows XP or earlier Windows operating systems. If you are running Windows Vista on your computer, download Windows Mobile Device Center to synchronize your computer with the iPAQ. Click here for more information . Symptoms Following is a list of symptoms that may indicate synchronization issues are occurring:

  • No ActiveSync chimes sound (or a gray icon displays), and there is no activity in the ActiveSync window on your personal computer.
  • ActiveSync chimes sound, and the ActiveSync icon on your personal computer changes to a swirling green icon. The “retrieving settings�? message appears on your personal computer, but the ActiveSync connection drops prior to establishing the partnership.
  • ActiveSync is searching for a connection but none occurs. (The green icon on your personal computer continues to spin.)
  • Synchronization has been established between your HP iPAQ and personal computer but connection is dropped. (The green icon on your personal computer stops spinning and grays out.)
  • Firewall or other network protection software message box is displayed for ActiveSync to access the network or Internet.
Solutions Following is a list of troubleshooting tips if you experience difficulty while synchronizing your HP iPAQ and personal computer. Try the following solutions to troubleshoot any synchronization issues:
  • Confirm that you are running ActiveSync on your personal computer with a supported operating system (OS).
  • If you are running ActiveSync 4.0 or later and personal firewall software on your personal computer, please add ActiveSync to the firewall program’s exception list. (Firewall software, such as Sygate Personal Firewall, TrendMicro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005, Norton Personal Firewall, McAfee Personal Firewall, or Zone Alarm Security Suite may block synchronization.) Refer to the documentation that came with your firewall program to determine how to add ActiveSync 4.0 or later to the program’s exception list. To further troubleshoot a firewall application and enable ActiveSync 4.0 or later, visit: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/help/activesync/default.mspx .
  • During the ActiveSync installation, if you inadvertently left the Microsoft Exchange Server option box checked and are not planning to connect to an Exchange server, follow these steps:
    • Connect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer. Be sure an ActiveSync connection is established.
    • On your personal computer, click Start > All Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync.
    • Click Tools > Options > Sync Options tab.
    • Uncheck the boxes for the sync items listed under the Server group.
    • Place a checkmark in the boxes under the Desktop group for those items you want to synchronize.
  • Disconnect your HP iPAQ from your personal computer and wait for the ActiveSync message confirming that your device is no longer connected. Reconnect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer. Wait for about two minutes to see if your HP iPAQ connects to your personal computer.
  • On your personal computer, in ActiveSync, select File > Connection Settings. Confirm that USB is selected as a potential connection method.
  • Connect your HP iPAQ to a different USB port on your personal computer.
    • Check your USB synchronization cradle or cable.
    • Consider using another synchronization cradle or cable if one is available to you.
  • Try synchronizing via an infrared or a Bluetooth connection. Refer to the printed or CD-based documentation that came with your HP iPAQ for specific instructions.
  • Restart your personal computer and perform a soft reset on your HP iPAQ. (A soft reset does not erase any of your settings, programs or data.) Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button. Your HP iPAQ restarts and displays the Today screen. Once your personal computer and HP iPAQ restart, reconnect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer.
  • Uninstall ActiveSync from your personal computer and then reinstall it. To uninstall ActiveSync from your personal computer, click Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync. Then click the Remove button > Yes.
  • After trying the above solutions without any success in solving your connection problem, perform a hard or clean reset on your HP iPAQ. (A hard or clean reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and data and restores your HP iPAQ to factory settings. For more details, refer to the printed or CD-based documentation that came with your device.) You can reinstall your applications on your HP iPAQ once the hard or clean reset is complete by using ActiveSync on your personal computer. Once your HP iPAQ is synchronized properly, go to ActiveSync on your personal computer and select Tools > Add/Remove Programs... and select any programs you want to reinstall.

Deleted PMD file


If you have not disconnected the pocket drive, have a look in the Recycle Bin, if it is still in there click on the PMD folder to highlight the folder and click on File - then click Restore.
This will then restore the PMD folder to the pocket drive.
If you don't see the PMD folder in the Recycle bin, you may be able to download it from the HP WEB site.

System Restore Via Recovery Console


<br /> Ever encountered a problem with your computer wherein it gives you an error page saying that a certain file in the registry is missing or corrupt? Unfortunately, with this kind of error, there are times that you are not able to boot into the OS, and therefor you are not able to do a system restore. <br /> If you are using Windows 7 or Vista, you may initiate System Restore via booting into "Repair My Computer" which you can choose via the Advanced Boot Options of Windows. However, what do you do if this does not work, or you are using Windows XP. <br /> Fortunately, there is still a way to be able to restore your system. This involves manually doing the system restore via the recovery console (for XP), and recovery environment (Vista and 7). The only thing that you will need is the OS CD. <br /> Once you have successfully booted into the Recovery Console, type in the commands below and make sure that you press "ENTER" after each line. <br /> <br /> C:\WINDOWS] cd \ C:\] attrib -h-s "system volume information" C:\] Cd "system volume information" C:\system volume information] cd _resto~1 ..._resto~1] dir --- this should list several rp folders [short for restore points] just select second to the last or any of your choice other the the last rp folder ..._resto~1] cd rp# ...rp#] cd snapshot ...snapshot] dir --- the 5 hive files are shown in this format: _registry_machine_software _registry_machine_security _registry_machine_system _registry_machine_sam _registry_user_.default Syntax [Command filename location] ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_software c:\windows\system32\config\software ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_system c:\windows\system32\config\system ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_security c:\windows\system32\config\security ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam ...snapshot] copy _registry_user_.default c:\windows\system32\config\default ...snapshot] exit <br /> After this, you just need to restart your computer and it should be working fine.

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile


This article describes how to copy user data from your Windows XP profile to a new profile.
When you copy user data into a new profile, the new profile becomes a near duplicate of the old profile, and contains the same preferences, appearance, and documents as the old profile. If your old profile is corrupted in some way, you can move the files and settings from the corrupt profile to a new profile.
Note The method that is described in this article may not transfer the Outlook Express e-mail messages and address user data that are associated with the user profile where you are transferring data from. When you delete the old profile, you may delete that data if it you do not first transfer it by using other methods. For more information about transferring Outlook Express user data, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Emachine cant find operating system


Hello,

If it doesn't show a HD in bios, that means that either the HD isn't connected properly ie you have 2 devices set as slave or master on same ide cable and it cant detect the HD. Try temporarily disconnecting the CDroms or other devices that may be conflicting and see if that helps.

Hope that helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

HP ipaq hx 2000 pocket PC


It could be, or it could be something to do with configuration. I researched this earlier, and this CF card problem is something that has come up for several years now, on several different devices, but usually with the Windows OS 2003 or later. Here's a basic summary of the recommendations I found :

- Soft reset the device, using the reset button (on the hx2000 series, that's recessed on the left side of the bottom of the device, and you can press it with the stylus). This sometimes solves the problem, but you will often find that it recurs afterwards. It's more of a short term fix than a permanent one.

- Back up the CF card's data, then reformat it and make sure that it is FAT32. This is the most universally recognized file format and has the least problems.

- If this doesn't work, then a last resort option would be to try backing up your device's software and performing a hard reset to return the device to its factory defaults. Make sure you have everything you want backed up before you do this, though, as it will lose all programs and files that you don't have stored. To perform a hard reset on the hx2000 series :

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding the buttons, press the stylus against the soft reset button and hold it there for about seconds.
3. Once the screen begins to fade, first release the Calendar and iTask buttons, then release the stylus from the reset button. (If you hold all three for more than two seconds, the device will disconnect itself from the battery and power off - apparently if this happens you can simply push the reset button again, or you can plug it into an AC adapter.)

The device should now begin to restart. After this, you need to select to restore the factory settings. Go to Start --> Programs --> File Explorer --> My Device, then open the iPaq File Store. In there, select all files, and then delete them.

If this doesn't work after restoring it to the factory defaults, then I think you may well be stuck with a faulty flash slot. However, let's hope it doesn't come to that - good luck with resolving this problem!

Copying Microsoft Word macros to new computer system


Macros are stored in one of two places, Irene - and you decide where and when you create one. When you select Tools -> Macro -> Record New Macro you’re prompted to either create the macro in the global template (normal.dot) file, or the document you’re currently working on - by default, normal.dot is selected so that the macros are available in all documents you create.

Your normal.dot file is also where all custom styles, toolbars and autotext entries are stored, and it’s possible to transfer all of these - plus your macros - from one machine to another courtesy of Word’s Macro Organizer tool. The walkthrough below explains how to access it and back up your macros to a file you then transfer to your second PC before copying those macros into the normal.dot file on that computer so the macros are accessible from there too.

While this tool is the best way to transfer macros, or other individual elements of your normal.dot file (just select the appropriate tab to transfer styles, toolbars and autotext entries in exactly the same way), if you’re migrating to another PC you may wish to take all your settings with you. If you have Office 2000 or later you can use the Save My Settings Wizard to back up all your Office customisations - including the normal.dot template - and then use the same wizard on your new computer to restore them to the version of Office installed there.

Office XP and 2003 users will find the tool installed with Office -access it from the Microsoft Office Tools menu on the Start -> All Programs menu; Office 2000 users need to download it from here. It’s called the Microsoft Office 2000 Profile Wizard here.
