I had the record button mapped to Windows Media Player in PPC2002. Then I had the record button mapped to Play/Pause in WMP. I then had the side up and down buttons mapped to previous and next track respectively. Now with the A02 Firmware I can't map the Action button to WMP which is REALLY ANNOYING!!!!!!! And now with A05/A06. I can't map any of the four keys on my Axim, the Home, Mail, Contacts or Calender in WMP10, to any functions. Is there a way in the registry to hack, assigning the action button to something in PPC2003, and the actual buttons in WMP10 to something.

  • 3. Activesync: problems with partnership
    I have been on vacation for a month. When I got home the battery of my ppc was exhausted. After reloading and booting my ppc everything was gone. It started as if it came right out of the box. I have an existing partnership on my pc. My idea was to enter the old partnership name on the ppc (settings->System->About->Device ID) and just resync everything from the pc. No such luck. I got the message that a partnership with that name already existed. I had to enter a new name. What do I have to do in order to be able to restore the data from the existing partnership Any help is much appreciated. Gr. Lex Sijtsma

Can you use  an external  card reader?

1.Urgent help: file transfer limit of 999 files???


I am doing some research and testing for moving across a 
huge number of text files to pocket pc via ActiveSync, 
the file transfer will always terminate at file no 999 
although there are still plenty of space left on the 
storage card. the same if i zip those files and unzip 
them on the pocket pc storage card, it seems that a 
single folder can only take 999 files. 

But if i use a card reader, i can transfer all the files 
(few thousand) into a directory without any issues, and 
pocket pc is able to access, read and search the files in 
that folder without any problems as well.

Anyone have any ideas on why is this happen and how to 
solve it, providing that i must transfer the files over 
via activesync only.

My SD card is on FAT32 format.

4.CAB files don't copy to storage card?

Intermec 700 Mono Pocket PC.  Windows CE 3.0

These units are used in a data collection application.  I have the
unit configured to automatically launch a custom data collection
application when the unit is warm-booted.  The way this is achieved is
by modifying a 'autouser.dat' file in a special directory on the
storage card.

I have created a CAB file to re-install all of my needed applications
on a cold boot.  But the cold boot process overwrites my custom
'autouser.dat' on the storage card with a generic version, so the unit
no longer automatically launches the custom application on a warm
boot.  I was hoping that I could have the file replaced as part of the
CAB file installation (I'm a CE/Pocket PC newbie) but found out that
the storage card is not supported as an output directory.  So, I don't
know how to automatically replace the 'autouser.dat' file on the
storage card with my custom version during a cold boot.

I have an inquiry in at Intermec, but I'm not sure I'll get a response
since these units were bought off of Ebay and I don't have a support
contract.  I was hoping someone here would know of a way to
automatically replace the 'autouser.dat' file on the storage card with
my custom version.  The users of the devices out in the field range
from mostly clueless to completely clueless so using File Explorer to
copy this file from point A to B has to be considered a last-ditch

Any of you Pocket PC experts have an idea how I can make this happen?
