Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
It is saying unknown card, i thought it may not have the right driver but i cannot access the internet to download one to it.
SOURCE: Internet connection
For x5, you will need either cf wifi card or sd wifi card. If wifi network hotspot is free and internet access is allowed (check with your college's network administrator for information), all you need is be in the range, turn the wifi on and connect to it (there maybe several security settings you have to do on the axim and these can also be obtained from network admin). For paid hotspot, you will be redirected to enter username and password when you ty to access internet.

Go to Wal Mart and buy a 1 gig SD card----- and then buy a AmbiCom 54G wireless CF card. Works perfectly in my X5.

SD cards must be SD not SDHC, there is not an SDHC driver for the X5. You can find regular SD cards up to 4G.
CF is no problem, all flash based CF cards will work. Microdrives can be problematic.

For exact to the point instructions we need specifics about what you want to do and with what but here goes...
Can't really help with the connect to the internet without more info than you provided. You need a wireless card, access to a wireless system and the drivers for the card. Even then it is not always consistant.
First I'm assuming you know that you need and have installed Activesync on the computer.
To transfer files to the Axim you simply drop them in the mobile my documents folder that is installed on the desktop when sync files is selected in Activesync. If you don't have it, open Activesync and select" options", check the "files" box. A desktop icon will be added.
If you mean install program files... most of the time you install on the desktop and it adds files to the x5 when you sync.
Sometimes you may need to transfer CAB files to the x5. In that case you will drag and drop the file on your x5 in my computer or on the icon on the desktop just like any other file move to another location
If your trying to sync with the wireless card, I am not familier with the method but in order to get the card to work it needs drivers that must be installed from the computer and through Activesync by wired connection first
