well...the CD you are talking about can be procured from another user or from your phone's official home-page(if any). The upgrade for windows 5/6/6.1 is possible only if your pocket pc has at least 128 of RAM 64 ROM and a processor of at least 300MHz(i tested under these conditions and it worked fine for win 5 mobile and it worked a bit sloe for win 6).For win6.1 you require double the amount of resources. Plus of that, I don't recommend you upgrading because the fact that your device is a bit old can be an important factor for this upgrade.
There is no official i-mate upgrade for Windows Mobile 6. However, you can find ROMpacks for WM6 on the XDA forums (http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=356). be aware that these are not supported by the manufacturer and will void any warranty on the device. You also run the risk of making your device inoperable if you do not follow instructions crefully, or install a corrupted ROMpack.
The operating systems on PDAs are different from the normal PC ones. The operating system is stored in the ROM of your PDA, and when you do a hard reset to your PDA, the windows is reinstalled from your ROM. And if there is no ROM upgrade for that particular device by directly from it's brand (sadly there is no ROM upgrade to any other version of windows for that device), you cannot upgrade your device's windows version. There is something called "Cooked ROMs" in the internet containing newer versions of windows, but they are illegal and risky. Anyway, your PDA is designed for that version of windows, including hardware, and newer versions of windows may not work correctly or completely slow down your PDA.
download Windows Mobile 6.0 from ( Imate.com ) , when you download the file connect the phone with your PC using Microsoft Activesync , then run the rom ( file that u download it ) .
then follow the instruction that will appeare to you on your PC screen AND will Appeare to you in your phone
