How to eject cards from Axim?

I've checked all around, but for the life of me cannot figure out how to get my IBM Microdrive out of the Axim. Smaller Type II cards with a "lip" can be pulled out, but what about my MD?

Re: How to eject cards from Axim?

Be VERY careful removing that Microdrive, matter of fact IBM does NOT recommend using the microdrive in any CF device that doesn't have an eject mechanism. I ruined one of my microdrive's in my BE-300 (no cf eject) by pulling it out, and there is a cutout that lets you actually pull out the card on the BE. When I got my replacement Microdrive, I just put a piece of scotch tape going from top, off of the drive a little bit, then to bottom, and it made a little tab I could pull the drive out with so I don't put vertical pressure on the drive squeezing down on it to get a grip to slide it out..

Re: How to eject cards from Axim?

I attached a plastic strip on the back of my MicroDrive. It has a one inch plastic tab on the top and I use that to remove the drive from the slot. I got the strips (they have one sticky side) with another CF card I got somewhere along the way and it works great! Otherwise, I'd probably be looking at using some fine needle nose pliers, a pair of tweezers or just leaving it in forever.

Can't install drivers for WIFI card


I purchased a VeriFone 11 Mbps 802.11b Wireless Compact Flash Adapter card for my Axim X5. I put the disc and the wifi card in my laptop and I can get on the internet. But can't seem to get it going in the Axim. It always reads "Unrecognized Card". Tried ActiveSynce and putting the drivers on a different Flash card. No luck..

Axim Battery


The battery that comes with Axim is the standard 1440mAh; an extended battery with something like 3400mAh is indeed available as an option. According to some reviews of Axim, the standard battery is good for 8-10 hours of normal usage. One review said they played MP3s non-stop for 6 hours 22 minutes before the MP3 player stopped because of not enough power, but Axim still had another 16% on the battery which was good enough for about another full hour of standard usage. Audio and video will both cut down on how much you can expect from the battery, video much more so than audio. If you are planning on watching full length movies on an airplane from a 1GB Microdrive, I think getting the extended battery would be a good idea. I'll give this a try myself as soon as I get my Axim, which should be... drum roll... the day before Xmas, according to Dell.

Dell Axim doesn’t support serial connections?


There is another thread on this board where a number of people talked about serial connections and alternatives. I also want to connect my existing AirMap 100 GPS via serial cable. The Dell moderator (Rollie) pretty much put an end to that thread by stating: "A serial cable is not available @ this time and when one will be available is unknown"

The advanced Axim appears to work fine with the 1GB Microdrive. Just appears as a "CF Card". MP3's etc play fine from it with no noticeable problems.

just a guse but the batery looks to have enouth mA to run a CF 802.11b card and an sd blue touth card i think if you will be connected to a network or a wifi connection i would invest the money in the 3400MAH insted of the 1440MAH.

Microdrive compatible?


The microdrive is compatable with anything that supports reading compact flash memory cards, because there is a common method of communication between flash and hard drives that use pcmcia or CF slots.
