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

How do you charge the phone?


You can see a USB like port at the bottom center of the device. You can charge the battery by: • Connecting your device directly to an external power source. • Plugging the device sync cable into the USB port on your PC.

I have a Ipaq 2200 version 4.2 2003 will it active sync with windows7


In order to sync your iPAQ with Windows Vista or Windows 7, you will need to download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/device-center-download.mspx.

Notes
  • To find out whether your version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. The version is listed after System Type.
  • You can use Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 only with phones running Windows Mobile 2003 or later. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 devices. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, and if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync content to any of these devices, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
  • You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.
  • You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use Windows Mobile Device Center to sync.

CD Rom


you actually don;t really need the CD. you only need the cable to connect to a pc via USB. or you can connect using Bluetooth if your computer supports bluetooth

if your connecting via USB. be sure to set some settings first

go to <Phone Settings
>Connectivity
> USB Connection
> select MASS STORAGE

when you plug your phone. your phone should act like a regular mass storage device. Take note that only the External Memory is accessbile. (NOT the INTERNAL Phone Memory) so be sure to have a Memory card in your phone.


so it will be helpfull to set the default storage of pictures/files/etc to the external memory

Treo 650 wont sink


Assuming you are running Palm OS and not one of the rare beta Windows Mobile versions, here is my take on this.

Are you using a USB or Serial Sync cable? With either solution, make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Hotsync Manager is set to the correct setting (either USB, Serial, IR, etc). Conflicts between the cable type and the settings on your PC are common.

I prefer using USB cables since they are faster and you can tell if you are connected quicker than with a serial cable. Initiate the sync via your phone or the Palm Desktop Manager software. I have had faulty cable sync buttons and this was a good solution for me. If you haven't tried a new sync cable, you might want to.

Actually if you have time and a laptop, you can take your Treo to a Palm store and borrow one of their cables to try and sync. They were really helpful whenever I went in there.

Good luck.

If you are using the USB connection you'll need to check to make sure your HotSync is enabled for USB and not just serial port connection (the old default). Find the HotSync icon (red and blue arrows bent into a circle) in your computer's system tray (next to the clock) and right-click to bring up the menu. At the top you'll see "Local USB," "Local Serial," "Modem" and "Network." Make sure that there's a check next to Local USB. If not, just click on it, once, to enable it. Then, reconnect your Palm and activate the HotSync on the Palm (the star on the right side of the entry pad).

Let us know how it turns out, okay?

EM-500 sync problem


There have been issues with the cradle PCB on the EM-500. Casio has redesigned the same added an IC & a few additional componentes. I had similar problems & simply could not connect through the USB port. Worked flawlessly with the accessory serial cable (direct connection - no cradle ). This also was on an XP system. See if you can wangle out a free replacement/fix for yout cradle from Casio.
