Question about HP iPAQ H1940 Pocket PC
I have the above Ipaq that use to work fine with my MS XP operating system. Now I have Vista premium and it doesn't work very well if at all. It does recognize it sometimes but I checked the MS site and there is no sync software for vista and this model Ipaq only newer models, because of the Ipaq OS. Is there away around this so I can use my Ipaq, with out upgrading the OS. Or should I just get rid of Vista!!! My ipaq 1945 is stuck on the HP screen 1.07 and will not sync after I was told to hold the power button down and reset
Hi. While holding power button, and pressing reset will do a hard reset to your PDA (reset the device to its factory default settings). So if your PDA is working well, don't do it. As for the syncronization with your Vista PC; Winodws XP uses the ActiveSync software for syncronization, and for Windows Vista, Microsoft developed a brand new syncronization software called "Windows Mobile Device Center". It can be downloaded here: (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center-download.mspx). When you download/install this software to your PC, you should be able to connect your PDA to your PC without any problem, and definitely without changing any OS in your PDA or PC. Hope this helps.

Do you really need to sync, or do you just need to exchange files?
If you just want to move some files from desktop to Ipaq, buy a SD memory card. Copy files to the SD card and put it in the Ipaq. Now you can load the files.
