Contact Transfer for Journada 540?

My 540 battery is dying and I want to transfer my contacts to my Windows XP laptop. Activesync has backed everything up, but the information can't be used in that format.The menu for direct file transfer says that "contact" is not installed on the laptop (and there is no checkbox next to it in the menu)and I cannot tranfer the contact information directly. I can't find the contact program anywhere to install on the laptop and I can't get those files to transfer. Is there a way to get the contact information into Outlook Express or my address book in the laptop? Or, where can I get an XP version of the Contacts program? Also, how long does it take to get a battery replaced? This one has to be sent in to service just for replacement. That was certainly not a user friendly design feature... Any ideas would be appreciated

Re: Contact Transfer for Journada 540?

The Jornada 540 should have come with Outlook 2000. It works fine in Windows XP. When you Sync your computer and Jornada 560, the contact information should transfer from one to the other until both have the same contact information. Under the Tools pulldown on Activesync, select Options. Sync Options allows you to sync your Contacts by checking the box next to it. The next time you sync, all of your contacts from your 560 will be in your Outlook. When you get your battery replaced, just sync again and all of the contacts in your Outlook should transfer back to your 560. The other option is to get a Compact Flash memory card and backup your info onto that. Its much easier. Simply restore your info from your memory card when the battery is replaced. Hope that helped you.

My DellAxim doesn't recognize my Ambicom WL54-CF


All versions of activesync will handle this device providing it is powered by Microsoft Widows Mobile, Microsoft Windows CE, or a similar Microsoft Windows Powered OS. I am unaware of what your specific device utilizes; however I do know that all versions of ActiveSync will provide support to devices listed above.

The CD is most likely a support plug-in or a remote install for desktop to device software.

Please consult Dell's support and Drivers site for any additional information or pieces of software you may require. You should however, providing your desktop/laptop computer is using > Windows XP, be able to utilize limited access abilitys of your device (such as transfer of files) given Windows Mobile device recognition.

Please let us know if you require further information.

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Asking driver for my imate


hi thanks for using fixya!

You need to install the Activesync to your pc or laptop in order to connect your Imate using USB cable or bluetooth.

Synchronizing your phone with your PC is the best way to transfer information, settings, and files. Synchronization is handled with different applications for Windows Vista and Windows XP or earlier.

Just click HERE to download and install the Activesync to your pc or laptop,

Good luck! if you need further assistance, let me know.

Contact list to memory stick


Instead of loading all of your contracts onto your memory stick, why don't you connect your treo to your computer and ActiveSync all your contacts to Outlook, and when you get your new phone, and just have to ActiveSync again and all your contacts will be there. Hope this helps.

Jornada 525 and Windows Media Player 9


Only a hint. Did you check the small print via the downloads for Pocket PC on the Microsoft web pages? If you download from the regular OS pages they don't mention that certain Pocket PC generations are not supported. I noticed this but only on Media Player downloads fom the pocket PC pages but it takes time to find this more detailed info. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/resources/downloads/pocketpc/defau lt.mspx
