3715 Help!?
      06/27/05 04:32 PM


I admit to being very new to the world of handhelds. I purchased an Ipaq 3715 approximately 2 months ago. I bought the Dummies book and have been trying to figure things out. I've been able to set up my email to receive, but not send. I haven't installed any new programs. I have used it mainly to browse the internet (I have a wireless network at home that it automatically located, yay!), to create shopping lists, and to work with small Word files. The use of handhelds will be part of the curriculum that I will be teaching in Keyboarding class at the high school level. I will be attending a workshop next month, but have been trying to figure things out on my own before then.

I have three main problems.

1. My laptop (Dell Inspiron 5150) no longer recognizes my pda when I place it in the cradle. When I run ActiveSync, it reads it as a guest. This is what I've done to correct. I have done a soft reboot on the pda; I have done a reboot on the laptop; I have deleted the partnership in ActiveSync and set it up again. When I delete the partnership, it will synch, but as soon as I remove the pda from the cradle and try again, it becomes a guest.

2. I am running out of memory. I can't save anything because of low memory. It's not even letting me websurf anymore. I have virtually nothing saved, so I'm confused by this. I don't have any files in the File Explorer. I have not installed any programs. I do have information in the contacts, notes, and calendar sections. I have a 500 mb SD card installed. How do I utilize this better?

3. As I mentioned above, I have a 500 mb sd card installed. I moved the pictures I had in the my pictures folder to a my pictures folder on the card. The dockware cannot find them here. I love the dockware feature of displaying the calendar and rotating the photos. If I leave a copy in the original my pictures folder, it works. Is there any way of having the dockware look in the sd card.

Thanks in advance for any help. I feel like I'm beating my head against the wall trying to figure this thing out.
