    Hi! If you know someone in the US who wouldn't mind, I'd recommend getting it through them. Of course, it is possible that the upgrade cannot be exported from the US. Has HP given you a reason why they won't sell and ship to you? William
  • 4. ipaq connection to standard modem
    Hello, my company wil purchase an ipaq 2215 for me shortly. I have absolutely no knowledge of palmtops/pocket pcs and I do have a very specific need that i do not know whether this is covered by this model: I simply need to be able to connect to the internet using a standard external PC modem that i have (that has a serial port as an exit). Does enyone know how/whether i will be able to do this? Is there a way to connect the ipaq straight on the modem with a cable of some sort and have this connection? (and how easy is it to configure by the way to do this). I appreciate your replies in this. Thank you very much! Elaine

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?
