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.

AXIM X3 Language

1. Download Axim X3 English (A01) setup, link from here --> http://www.slipstreamsolutions.co.uk...dates.htm#Dell
2. run the setup and make a backup ROM of youre x3, save someplace handy. I now have a file named A01-10240300GE.RIS
3. Run setup again, try to upgrade, get an error message - wrong language, etc but in that DELL folder, you now have a file named, in my case, P16R_A04080402EN.IMG
4. Open with a hex editor A01-10240300GE.RIS and copy all lines from 00 to 07
5. Open with a hex editor P16R_A04080402EN.IMG, select all lines from 00 to 07 and paste there the 7 lines from the first file, save with any name WITH .ris EXTENTION!
6. Run setup again, choose backup/restore and point to the modified .ris file. Now you have the same thing in that window, up and down side.
Do like a normal backup, DO NOT TOUCH THE PDA, THE PROCESS CAN TAKE UP TO 12 MINUTES!
The PDA restarts itself and, voila, you have axim x3 with a new language.

Axim after a hard reset!

Well to make a long story short, after the hard reset I lost all data, and I put the axim in the cradle and it sync-ed but I had to create a new name for it, and it never brough the software that I had originally installed on the unit back... is that common and everytime we'll do a hard reset on it, will we have to re-install all the software and assing a new name to the unit, if so than it is ridiculous!!!

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.

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.
