E400 usb host capable of using external hd?

Can you connect a usb hard drive to the e400 with the usb host cable? If so, is there a possibility to use the drive in connection with a gps system attached? Is there something like a distributor to attach gps cable AND usb host cable at the same time?

Re: e400 usb host capable of using external hd?

As far as I know if you want to make this kind of connection I suppose that you need suitable driver for it. Sorry but there is no any known driver to me. In my opinion there are some another reasons that speaks against usage of HDD. First of all HDD need external power supply and secondly the HDD is very sensitive again agitation.

Connection error to link phone to pc


hi 1st of all, reinstall the LG Pcsuite software, once that is done, you will see that a usb modem driver is also installed at the end of the process of installing the LG Pcsuite.

If you disconnect the usb cable from your mobile, then..

on your mobile go into the menu, then phone settings, then connectivity, there you will see USB connection mode.

If you click on USB connection mode you will see 3 options..
Data service, if selected tells your mobile to act as a modem when attached to your computer\
Mass Storage, if you select this option and then plug your usb cable back into your mobile, your computer will then discover your mobile phone as an external hard drive that will show up within Windows "My Computer", you are then able to browse your SD Micro memory card as an external hard drive and copy your files to your computer as simply as from one drive to another.
Remember if you want to use your phone again as a modem to go back to the USB connection mode menu and reselect Data Service.
Hope that helps

Connecting to pc


make sure you've loaded the software the phone came with onto the host pc (fully loaded it, and go through the "configuration" routine it asks you to complete after installing the activesync software). That should fix your problem. Incidentally tho, i've connected my phone via usb cable to pc's that did NOT have the active sync software installed, and those pc's still recognized the phone as a removable drive (without the syncing capability). You can still install applications and syncronize files manually so long as the host pc sees it as a removable drive tho (although it takes a tad bit more technical knowledge, such as file paths and the like)

The green is a data/power cable that can be used by itself if your USB port can provide enough power to power the drive. If the one port does not provide enough power by itself, you can plug in the blue connector as well to provide additional power for the drive.

Can the sync cable be used for regular serial or usb connections to external devices such as GPS devices?


No the Axim does not support Serial Interfaces at all. It also doesn't have USB Host capability.

Connect Flash drive to HP iPAQ h6315


Do you mean a USB "stick" drive? (i.e. like you use with a laptop or desktop?) If so, it won't work since the 6315 does not have a USB host capability -- Some other brand PPCs do support this function, but not HP. Sorry.

Can the e800 USB-host feed a 500mA Harddisk?


You may need to look up the hard drive on the manufacturers web site. They should list the spec's, including power requirements. In theory, sounds good though - anything to eliminate a power brick is good. Do you already have a hard drive you're thinking of using? If so, please post the drive model, manufacturer, etc - I can look it up at work in our files.

No, but if you hook up a computer connecting to the internet through that phone line to the router, i think you can share that internet connection with the pocketpc. Reply With Quote

Problem serial connection e400 using cradle


I am not 100% sure if I am correct in this, but I am quite sure that the e400 does not support a serial connection. Only the e800 does.

E400 + gps


As far as I know for almost every device you must install driver. Like you know the driver is very important because a driver acts like a translator between the device and programs that use the device. Each device has its own set of specialized commands that only its driver knows.

Using a host cable


I have also found out that this cable will work just with e400 and e800 models. If there is no specification that says that this cable can be used with your PDA it will be a risk to buy it.
