Restoring Backup to New Axim

Just received a new Axim due to the bad D-Pad (Received it in one day - way to go Dell!!). My question is if I make a back up of my present Axim with Dell's included Back Up Program or even with Pocket Backup by Sprite Software, can I restore it to the new Axim? Thanks for any thoughts.

I believe this method will work: Make a backup of your existing Axim using ActiveSync on the desktop. It's slow but reliable. Backups created by Dell's Data Backup utility have failed to restore as reported by a number of people in this forum. Remove your old Axim from the cradle and put the new one in. When the Partnership Wizard prompts you to create a new partnership, click Cancel. You will now be connected via a Guest Partnership. Use ActiveSync to restore. When the restore completes, you should get prompted to remove your Ax from the cradle and soft reset. When you put it back in the cradle, your Ax should be recognized under the existing partnership. Do not connect your old Axim for syncing after a successful restore to your new one.

The backup utility included on your Dell Handheld will backup your data to a storage card. You can restore on your replacement handheld from that storage card. From your Host PC, you can go to Tools | Backup/Restore and do a backup to the Host PC, and you can then restore after syncing the replacement handheld for the first time.

Have you tried hooking it up to the cradle or power plug? That should automatically kick the display on.

You don't say if the Axim crashed. If so, try hitting the reset button with a pen point on the back of the Axim. That should reboot it. Post back with how it goes.

My Dell Axim X5 400MHz Pocket PC wont hold the charge


Some people have said that the original ppc2002 ROM has battery draining problems. If this is something new, perhaps it is a bad battery. Ebay for a new one.

If you think it might be a software problem and you have ppc2002-also known as Windows Mobile 2002, upgrade your Axim with the A04 ROM:http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R63937&SystemID=PDA_AXIM_X5&servicetag=&os=PPC&osl=en&deviceid=4434&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=7&fileid=82832

Other Axim stuff here (make sure to choose the correct operating system - ppc 2002 or ppc 2003): http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/devices.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&SystemID=PDA_AXIM_X5&category=0&os=PPCA&osl=EN

Problems with SD Slot on Axim


I once used Mazingo on another pocket pc. I had it set to use the CF card in it. It did the same thing it's doing on yours now. It caused word to take a long time to open and it loaded the pages in it really slow. I stopped using it for that reason. I think it may just me the Mazingo program.

Axim directional pad


fully agree. My 3 largest gripes with the Axim are as follows: 1. Lame feeling directional pad (should be 5-way..i.e. the Palm Tungsten) 2. Even cheaper-feeling rocker/jog-dial thingy. 3. Disappointing video playback, specifically in Pocket TV.

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.
