Question about Compaq iPAQ H3630 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Using a keyboard

I have an ipaq 3630 and a Targus stowaway keyboard (both a gift from my father who has never used them since buying new) however, the keyboard has no supporting documentation/cd and I cannot get the Ipaq to recognise that it is connected. Presumably I need somekind of software but am having difficulty finding it

Hi there

Today I am going to show you how to get your Targus Stowaway Keyboard to run on your Pocket Pc! Go to http://www.limewire.com and simply download Lime Wire, once you have done so, search for Targus Stowaway Keyboard Driver for Pocket Pc (I searched for: Targus Stowaway Keyboard Driver for Compaq Ipaq H3630 Pocket Pc), as this is my Pocket Pc model and make. Then go to http://www.google.com and search for Microsoft Activesync, find a website where you can download this for free and then download it and set it up and have it in "sync" with your Pocket Pc. Then, while you are still in Lime Wire, open the file you just downloaded and let it do it's thing, once you have done this, your Desktop Pc and your Pocket Pc will tell you to reset the device (Your Pocket Pc), when it tells you to do this, it does not mean you must do a "Hard Reset" (A "Hard Reset" is when you switch off the device at the bottom of the pocket pc, which makes you lose all of your programmes and all the stuff you have on your Pocket Pc) what it means is that you must turn off your device at the on/off button at the top of your device and then turn it back on. Now your keyboard should work! Once you have done all of this, you might have a problem with your menu (Your menu is in the middle of your screen), to fix this problem go to "Settings" and click on "Menus", once this has opened, search for "Stowaway" and un-tick the box next to it. If you have any more problems or questions about your Compaq Ipaq Pocket Pc or your Targus Stowaway Keyboard please send me an e-mail at dustin_ellse@yahoo.co.uk

Memory upgarde ipaq 3630


Hi there

1) Where can you purchase the memory? - you can buy them at many stores such as Walmart if you come from USA or Game if you come from South Africa.

2) How much can you put in? - Depending on the model of your Pocket Pc you can put up to 1gigabite but they usually come with only 64mb.

3) How to install it - You must first buy an HP expansion pack which you place on your Pocket Pc and you place the extra memory card in the expansion pack.

4) Where can you download software for it? - The memory card comes with the software installed already

Problem with 3630


unfortunatly this isnt a new issue. http://computing.net/pda/wwwboard/forum/838.html It sounds as though your recharging system has went on the fritz. If this is the case then money signs are going to soon be appearing. replacing the charging system is impracticle and the system blocks startup so this would even cause a new battery to not function properly and also probably what ruined your previous one.

Targus keyboard installation


The problem is most likely with the driver being for an older MIPS processor (like the one in the Casio E-100). Where did you obtain this keyboard. Targus did not really support the EM500 when the keyboard came out. Now, they don't at all. Email Targus www.targus.com or Stowaway www.thinkoutside.com for a new driver.

Can't connect EM500 to my laptop computer


It sounds like you are using two different types of USB connections, one for the iPAQ and the other for the Casio. What operating system is running on the laptop? How many USB ports are there? You might have to reboot when you want to change from one USB connector to the other. If you have two USB ports, always connecting a USB connect to the same port (iPAQ #1, Casio #2) might help the OS keep track of what is connected to it.
