BT PCMCIA card in IPAQ 3955 question
      #9462 - 03/21/04 04:58 PM

hello, this is my first post. My desktop computer has a Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard and mouse package. I own an IPAQ 3955 and recently purchased a PCMCIA Bluetooth card for my IPAQ so i can have BT connection between my computer and my IPAQ. Will this work? For some reason, my IPAQ doesn't recongize the PCMCIA card or it isn't set up and i am not sure how to do it. The software that came with the card is installed on the computer, but not on the IPAQ and i can't figure out how to install it on the IPAQ. Please help. Thanks.

The PCMCIA card would need to come with Pocket PC drivers. Bluetooth CF and SD cards do come with these drivers, but most PCMCIA cards don't and that's the likely problem.

Is there any place on the internet that these drivers can be downloaded by chance??? Thanks for the reply and hopefully i can figure this out cause this thing wasn't cheap. And you are right, it installs the software onto my computer but won't go on the IPAQ. thanks and please let me know!

Check the card manufacturer's web site for Pocket PC drivers. They'd have to provide them. The chances aren't good however, since PPC drivers for Bluetooth PC Cards are a rare thing.

Can you return the card and buy a CF Bluetooth card instead, or is it past the return period?
