Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

4 Answers

USB Sync Cable

Does anyone know if the USB Sync cable also charges the Axim. If not, does anyone know if one is available from a third party that will do both the sync and charge?

Re: USB Sync Cable

I got the 400mhz Axim with the cradle, plus I got the extra sync cable. It is a sync cable only - it does *NOT* charge the Axim. I was disappointed by this as well. I think the question is whether or not the Axim CAN be charged through the cable - it has a separate power input (like the Ipaq 36xx series), so maybe it can't take power through the sync port. If it CAN take power through that port to charge the battery, then I'll be buying the first available sync/charge cable on the market...

Re: USB Sync Cable

Actually there ARE cables for other PDA's that sync and charge the unit. I had one for my iPAQ and I bet it wont be long before we find one for the AXIM. eBay here I come...

Re: USB Sync Cable

I dont' think so. No other PDA does - it would be quite a drain on the USB port. It isn't like powering the tiny LED in an optical mouse.

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50 and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to a computer using a sync cable.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync connection is successful.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

We have a Dell Axim X5 that we are trying to connect to a PC. Have obtained a USB data/power sync cable, the Dell appears to charge from this cable however, ActiveSync on the source PC doesn't recognise...


I use AS 4.1. I think the Axim will use up to AS 4.5. I had no problems with sync until SP3 came out. Now I must resart the computer with the Axim connected to sync. If the computer goes into suspend it will no longer connect until restarted.

Attempt a restart with it connected.

I have known others with no ability to get the Axim and other devices to be recognized. Unaware of a solution in that case.

Will Dell Axim sync with Outlook 2000 on Windows 95?


It should if you have USB on the W95 machine. ActiveSync is compatable with W95. It worked for me with Outlook 98 on a Win95 laptop synching to a PC2000 PDA (Jornada), however I was using a serial cable.

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.
