I recently purchased a new laptop which has Vista installed. I have an HP iPAQ 4150 that I had not used for a while because I was using company computer (at home) with Blackberry. The manual has been misplaced so I have no reference for installing the PPC to my new laptop, which means I need HELP. I haven't the foggiest idea on how to start. I did try some research and have heard of folks who are able to use this model with their VISTA OS. I have gone to Microsoft and downloaded the latest version of the WMDC. However, I am still unable to sync. My PPC Com Ports show up as 8 and 6 and I cannot find a way to change them. VISTA bluetooth is set to 5 and 4. Don't know if I need to find a way to change them. Or if I even should. Do I set up a partnership? If, so How? My laptop is connected to a wireless network so should I be setting up a Proxy? VPN? (Don't know enough about them to to know if I do that). Can someone please give me some information and hopefully easy to follow step by step directions. I am getting so frustrated!!!!!!
The Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center requires that the first sync be made via the USB sync cable. After the h4150 is plugged into the Vista machine, the WMDC opens and prompts you through setting up a partnership. Then you can set the h4150 to sync via Bluetooth.
ActiveSync works fine with Vista. Ignore that other guys post.
The Active Sync program on the HP's is not compatible with Vista. I solved this problem with my 3715 by downloading a program called Easy Sync from Handango. It works like a charm, every time. Good luck

read the manual yet, or lost it> or?
most of these have 2 batteries
one that pops out one more that solders down.
guess which one retrains data.
finding parts for relics like this is not fun
what good is this thing besides, wall art?
why ask here at all, we are not HP , nor are there HP books here.
so ask here.
there are folks there that might remember so long ago
or even have old books laying about after all they are HP.
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.
some of the older versions of autocad does'nt tend to work in vista.try installing autocad 2008 or 2009.it is recently released and well compatible with vista.REMEMBER, if u r using it for architectural purposes,try downloading autocad architecture 2008.it is especially made for architects.try downloading it on torrentz.com
Mem cards are added as storage cards and do not add up to your iPaq RAM.
You can use mem cards to add up space to install applications. (ie. it is something similar to installing a new Harddrive on your PC). However the physical RAM of your iPaq cannot be extended.
PocketPC programs have small RAM requirements so your PDA's built-in RAM will suffice.
As far as the maximum card size if I understood your question right, if your iPaq comes with Windows Mobile v5 or earlier, it supports SD cards up to 2GB and perhaps some non SDHC standard SD cards up to 4GB. If you can upgrade to WM6, then WM6 supports SDHC cards, so you can install >4GB cards.
memory card isn't really memory it's more like a disk drive. it's not like when you add memory to a PC and the new memory is automatically used.
To make use of this card you need to transfer some of your larger files to the card....
You can move files from within the ipaq...
Click and hold on file.
Click and hold
Navigate with File Explorer to the SD card....
Open File Explorer
Select My device
Now select SD Card
You can create a new folder or select an existing folder
Click on Edit at bottom of screeen.
You can also move files directly from PC to Storage card......
While IPAQ is connected, go to My Computer, then double-click on Mobile Device, then double-click on Pocket PC. Now you will see your Storage Card, and you can use this just like a folder on your PC. You can create folders within it. You can click and drag files to it or to any of it's folders.
It might be a hardware problem - if you get it both with the cradle and a sync cable, then it might be the connector at bottom of Ipaq. But I don't know for sure. If it's intermittent like this then it doesn't seem like a software problem.
