Hello, I'm a new Poket PC Thoughtful Pupil.
I recently got a Jornada 680 from a friend, but he's not sure of finding the sync cable nor the CD's nor the modem cable. I downloaded all the user guides (spanish and english and have read them all, even the addendum) from www.hpjornada.com
, and I also dowloaded Active Sync 4.2 (latest version) from Microsoft`s page, and installed it on my Compaq 2500 Laptop (2,4 Ghz, 446 RMb RAM; Win XP, Serial port, Ir port).
Then I wanted to stablish an Infrared connection between both lap and Jornada, but Active Sync does not tell me there is a Ir port in the list (at least until I can configure this port). Then I read in the manual or somewhere (Active Sync's Help perhaps?) that I also need a program for configuring the laptop Ir port, which is apparently within the 2nd. CD shipped with Jornada pocket pc's.
I dis my best and today I spent 4 hours browsing a lot!!! of web pages to see where I could download this program, until I found this nice page Pocket PC Thoughts and I "thought" anyone of you could help me, or send me the exe of this program.
I also want to ask to Pocket Pc Thoughtfull fellows the following: :?:
1) Should I uninstall Active Sync 4.2 and install the older versions (2.0)? I think the only one I could get was this 4.2.
2) How does the modem cable for Jornada 680 like? In one end it is supposed to be an RJ-11 terminal but the terminal connecting to Jornada looks as if a RJ 11 does not fit in this hole. The 680 hole has like a tiny door.
3) User guide says that I cannot use the integrated modem coming with this Jornada in another country different from where it was bought (most likely USA), so what should I do? Should I buy another modem from card ? they say to look in www.hpjornada.com
web page to see for models allowed.
4) Someone in a web page (like Ebay) told me he can sell me a Wifi card (Avaya) which works fine in Jornada 680 (he says he has used it). Is it really so? Hava you heard from that?
Well, I gave you a lot of things to try to help me... :D
