Question about HP Jornada 568 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Updates Hi there, I was using my 568 with it's original Activesync 3.5 with Windows XP and haven't done any updates. Since I bought it from someone, I checked settings/system/display to see if the serial # appeared under the backlight lightbulb icon. It didn't, so I can only assume the guy I bought it from never updated it either. I now have a new computer and was in the process of loading the most recent versions various software programs. Saw there was an ActiveSync 3.8 available. Went to the HP website and saw there were lots of firmware updates and Pocket PC 2002 updates. I really tried to follow the instructions, but discovered links with no info, downloads with file extensions that look like they are for various languages, yet there is nothing in their descriptions that say that. I also saw an earlier post here where someone said there aren't any updates for the 568. Huh? What do I need to do to get all the updates (and is there a specific order? i.e. firmware before Pocket PC 2002?) Or can I just sync it as is with 3.8 with the new computer?

I have been using ActiveSync for several years now. From time to time I upgrade to the latest available version that I can find on the Microsoft website. I have been using version 3.8 for several months without major problems. So I can recommend for you to install version 3.8.

Then your copy of Windows is not legit. Talk to whoever set up your system, or if you have a legit copy of Windows, you may have to reinstall.

If you do a new, clean install of XP in 2018, one would be missing hundreds of updates from Microsoft that would be very hard if not impossible to get. Some of those updates might apply to software that you want to use in conjunction with Windows XP. And if it is an older PC, you might not be able to find driver support for the particular make/model, and XP might not have the drivers you need. How many times have you heard someone say, "I just reinstalled XP, but now I am missing drivers?"

This could be part of your trouble, because even if your XP updated all the way up to April 2014, you could still be missing HP updates provided by HP/Microsoft through Windows Update.

Since Microsoft has not supported XP since April 2014, I would recommend not using it anymore in 2018.

Please run the ncx2000xp update now or uninstall in the control panel/ software the latest windows hotfix service patch


I suppose you have a counterfeit hardware for an original Ncomputing software built-in. The only solution to that is NOT TO UPDATE YOUR WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2. Once you updated your Windows XP, your PC Station users cannot connect to your SERVER anymore.

If you have done the updates, just UNINSTALL the updates.

Regards!

Downloading Problem


I have always advised folk to leave the software disk in the box when connecting cameras and the like to a NTFS system. Plug it into USB port and Windoze will find it. Should be the same with Vista I guess Leave the disk in the box- or of you have installed stuff uninstall it. And let Windoze do the work.

I doubt it... I mean it is unlikely there is any incompatibility there. Go to your device manager and make sure that your USB ports are installed and configured properly for your USB cradel.
