Trying to install software on PPC via activeSync. Sync ok and can transfer files and stuff to SD card but when I try and install software it will only allow it on the Main memory, the ipaq file store  and SD card both show unavailable. software will work on main memory but its not the location I need it to reside on, the SD card is where I need it.

Thanks wormy22, I do appreciate your advice, any different view on a proble may prove to work. so far those items haven't. my next step is to do a full hard reset and then use activesync but pick guest so as to not sync to the pda, it may allow me to xfer the software on the sd chip instead of the main memory area. Is there any way to upgrade this HP Ipaq 3715 to win mobile 5. when you upgarde the OS on a PDA does it have to be provided by the manufacture ie HP for HP etc. Or will any  windows mobile 5 cd work? like from Microsoft?? insted of from HP. or are they specific to no only the brand but exact model??

Thanks for the follow-up

Have you tried other SD cards?  The box is uncheck for default install folder?  Maybe update the device.

    Sorry phildb, don't mean to question your knowledge just wanted to start with the basics and rule out some things.  A few more things I can think of but you've also probably already thought of though.  Make sure the SD card isn't locked but I bet you've already tried writing and reading data on the card.  Are you using active snyc for installation?  Unfortunately I'm mostly familiar with ipaqs.  Hope you can get this issue solved.

IPAQ HX4700 won't sync with desk top


Hello, Please try the following steps. They could help with your problem. First open this link to hp's download page for your PDA. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?&lang=en&cc=us&pnameOID=420535&taskId=135&prodTypeId=215348&prodSeriesId=420534&lang=en&cc=us Then select your pda's operating system (windows mobile 2003se or windows mobile 5). then from the following page select the ROM update and download it. Try to master reset the pda (you may find informations about this in the user manual). After you reset the device, don't tap anything on the screen (don't follow the welcome wizard or anything it asks you to do). Just connect the usb cable to the computer. Activesync may try to connect to the pda, may fail or things like this. It doesn't matter what does it do as long as it does something. Now open the ROM file you downloaded and press "next" untill the process begins. If the setup asks you to reset the device or things similar, don't do it. Just continue with the setup and "tell" the program you already done that. Make sure your battery is charged before doing this. Also make sure the pda and the computer are left alone these 10 minutes (that's how long it takes to do the ROM update). If the ROM update fail, please post a comment and give me the error message and code. We will take it from there. Also please inform me what version of windows are you using and eventually an email adress for me to send various service programs required for the next stage (if the rom update fails to work). Good luck, Bogdan

Have a dell axim x5 . how do you transfer files from the pc to ax


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

O2 xda 2 mini application installation


There can be three types of applications that you download from freeware sites:
  1. '.cab' files, that can be directly installed from your PPC
  2. '.exe' files, which are direct to be run applications that need no installation, just have to be placed in any folder and a shortcut has to be placed in the start-menu.
  3. '.exe' setup files. These files have to be opened in your PC while having your PPC connected thru Active Sync. This will install the application to your PPC thru your PC. These should be the kind of applications that you might be talking about for which you get such an error message "Not a valid PPC application!"
I think this should have solved your queries regarding PPC applications.

Best thing to do.

2. Uninstall Activesync if you have it installed
3. Restart your computer
4. Re-install activesync
5. Restart your PPC
6. When asked to connect the PPC connect it via USB

Converting plam address book to my Htc pocket pc


method1: The easiest way to do this is to sync your Palm Desktop data with the PIM on your Yahoo account. It's free so if you don't have a Yahoo account sign up and get one just for the transfer. Once your DateBook data is on Yahoo there is a simple to use option to sync Yahoo to Outlook. once all your stuff is in Outlook it will ActiveSync to the PPC

method 2:  install the Outlook and then the Palm sync conduits and sync their datebook, notes, tasks and contacts to Outlook. install Activesync and sync the pocketpc and they get their data. you can also use pocket mirror software for this.
method3: Install ExtendConnect from Extended Systems. Then sync first with the Palm. Then sync with the Pocket PC.

Cannot copy large files to my SD card


Yes , the Activesync connection is not reliable for large files. You really would be best to get a USB card reader, also it would be MUCH, MUCH faster.

EM-500 music transfer


Seeing that you are using a EM500 with only 16mb of RAM, you might want to get a SD/MMC Card. With that being said, let's do this, shall we? Connect your PPC to your desktop using ActiveSync, then press on the TAB "Explore" then "My Pocket PC". You are interest in the "My Documents" folder, that is where you will place your .WMA, MP3, OGG files. Just copy the music file from your desktop that you want on your PPC, and then paste it to the "My Documents" folder of your PPC. Now if you have a storage card (MMC/SD), you will have to create a folder on the storage card and name it to "My Documents". So you will then have 2 My Documents folders, one on storage card, and 1 on the PPC. If you want the Music file on the storage card to save space on your PPC, then do the following. Connect the PPC to your desktop using activesync, then press on the TAB "Explore" then "My Pocket PC". You then need to click on the "Storage Card" folder, there you will see your "My Documents" folder you created. Just copy the music file from your desktop that you want on your PPC, then paste it to that folder. To speed things up, you can also use a MMC/SD Reader. you can then copy and paste directly on the memory card, without going thru ActiveSync. Goodluck, and have fun!
