Files will not open on PDA - Medion Pocket PDA MD41800

Had this PDA for a couple of years, but never used it. Have just started it up, and find that I am unable to open any of the pre-loaded Word template documents, or any docs/spreadsheets that I create, or transfer from my pc. I have created a very small pocket excel document, and it appears in the list of files on the pda, but if I tap on it, it does nothing, and if I hold the stylus on it, the menu that appears does not offer me the option to open it. What am I doing wrong? I phoned up the Medion hotline, and they told me to do a soft reset, then a hard reset. I have done both and it still has not solved the problem.

    My Palm Pilot used to send message that storage space is low and some applications will not run until additional storage space added. The programs will not open up at all,or if it does, they freeze.

    Please advise .

Since you say you've had it a while and never used it before I suspect the firmware/software may be out of date. The apps that create documents/spreadsheets/etc change over time and the ability to open/read can be lost if you don't update your PDA. Check the website for the device maker and see if you can download updates. Another thing is to make sure you have installed the attachment reader software (if this is relevant) and turned on the ability to open such files in the settings for your PDA....sometimes for security or space conservation reasons this feature is not on by default. Check in "settings" "options" etc. Good luck hope this helps.

Hou ay can transfer fils of my pda

you can transfer files to your pda by connecting it to the USB PC port with the data cable (use Microsoft ActiveSync to transfer files, it works for PDA, GPS etc).

you can also use a memory stick to transfer files to your pda if your pda has such a thing (you just need a pc card reader, usb-pluggable)

HP iPAQ 210 calendar and contacts won't open

Somehow, the file that stores all of your contact and calendar data got corrupted, and the Calendar program crashed when opening. To fix the problem, rename the pim.vol file on the system root (it's a hidden file; I use Total Commander for file browsing on my device, which shows hidden files by default) to something like pim.vol.bak. You should now be able to open your Calendar, Contact, and ActiveSync again.

I don't know if you are still around and checking this, but it came up at the top of a google search, so hopefully, anyone else who finds this problem will be able to see the solution without having to hard reset their device.

Problem wiht the files browser

Let's clarify a few things, when you try to access files on your PDA in file explorer or within a program it will not let you open it. I would try updating your bios and see what happens.  Here's a link to where you can get it.

Also try browsing the files from your computer.  Also try starting fresh.  This is a really odd problem.  What programs do you use to try and open files?  Good luck with your issue.

Help a new guy out PLEASE

1. Pocket PC is the OS by MS, H/PC is the the old handheld PC, bigger than PDA, smaller than a laptop, Hp made some nice ones. P/PC I thought denoted the Pocket version or PDA instead of handheld. I do not think people use H/pc or P/pc anymore. 2. Back in the orginal days there were 3 processors, MIPS used by casio, SH3 I believe the original Jornadas had it or were they MIPS, ARM is by Intel and Samsung (I think makes it for the 1945 and is what most if not all PDAs use now.
