've just successfully upgraded an iPAQ H3630 from Pocket PC 2000 to 2002, including the suggested BIOS update for the new OS afterwards.
The problem is that the Self-test utility is now missing for some reason.
The "Special Features" upgrade manual which came with the CD clearly states, in the middle of Page 4 under the heading "Diagnose Problems" that you should be able to find the Self-test under the iTask section ("Tap the iPAQ Task icon, then Tap Self-test"), but no such feature exists, at least that I can discover.
If anybody knows where the Self-test may be hiding (obviously not where the manual says it is) please pass along the secret location.

Chances are, the update is not necessary and may slow it down considerably. However, If you want to update it, you should probably google search for it, although I haven't found anything yet on google.
1. Download the SoftPaq to a directory on your hard drive.
The file downloaded is a self-extracting executable with
a filename based on the SoftPaq Number above.
2. Establish an Activesync connection between your iPAQ Pocket
PC and host PC.
3. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions
to install the Real Time Update.
4. Follow the instructions to perform a normal reset on the iPAQ Pocket PC.
on step 3 you should see the setup on your pdas screen do you see this?
I would check your iPAQ to see what operating system is showing. Start -> Settings -> System (Tab on bottom) -> About (icon) this will tell you if its 2000 or 2002. You may have to acquire an older ROM and reflash.
The only thing I can think of that you would need(in addition to MS VS) is an SDK for PPC2002 or PPC2003. Not being a programmer, I can not say for sure, but I am aware of different Software Development Kits for the different versions of Windows, including PPC.
It sounds like you are using two different types of USB connections, one for the iPAQ and the other for the Casio. What operating system is running on the laptop? How many USB ports are there? You might have to reboot when you want to change from one USB connector to the other.
If you have two USB ports, always connecting a USB connect to the same port (iPAQ #1, Casio #2) might help the OS keep track of what is connected to it.
