1 Set up your Velo 1 for the upgrade.
If you purchased the Microsoft Windows CE 2.0
Upgrade Kit, follow the steps on page 8.
If you purchased the Velo 1 with 12 MB of DRAM and
the Microsoft Windows CE Upgrade Card already
installed, follow the steps on page 13.
2 Install Windows CE Services 2.0 (from the Microsoft
Windows CE CD) on your desktop computer.
3 Prepare your Velo 1 and your desktop computer for
installing Velo 1 applications.

Step 1: Set Up Your Velo 1 for the Upgrade
Important: If you purchased the Velo 1 with 12 MB of DRAM and
the Microsoft Windows CE 2.0 Upgrade Card already installed, go to
page 13.
If you purchased the Microsoft Windows CE 2.0 Upgrade Kit, you
will complete these steps:
•
•
•
•
•
Save your Velo 1 data
Remove all the batteries from your Velo 1.
Install the Windows CE 2.0 ROM Miniature Card.
Install more RAM in your Velo 1.
Reinsert all the batteries.
1a: Save your Velo 1 data.
Before you install the Windows CE 2.0 ROM Miniature Card, you
must back up all data on your Velo 1. When you install the ROM
Miniature Card, all programs, settings, files, and PIM data
(Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks information) on your Velo 1 will be
erased. Many of these items cannot be restored from a
backup file unless you follow the procedures below, which
explain how to back up all information on your Velo 1 to ensure
that no data is lost. After you have installed the upgrades on both
your Velo 1 and desktop computer, you will restore your data as
described in “Step 5: Retrieve Your Data.”
Programs — After you complete the upgrade, you will need to
reinstall any programs you’ve added to your Velo 1 from the
original source. In some cases, existing programs may not be
compatible with Windows CE 2.0. Check with the program’s
manufacturer to find out if you need a new version.
Settings — Program and device settings will be lost during the
upgrade. Before you upgrade, write down any important settings,
such as TCP/IP and network settings for remote connections,
settings for Inbox services, alarms and reminders, desktop
patterns, and sound schemes.
8
Step 1: Set Up Your Velo 1 for the Upgrade
Files — Documents and data files can be backed up using H/PC
Explorer; however, because Windows CE 2.0 and its components
require more storage memory than the original version, you may not
have enough memory to complete the upgrade. To ensure that
no data is lost, you should back up or copy individual files,
including data on a flash miniature card, if you have one,
onto your desktop computer.
To back up individual files
1 On your desktop computer, create a new folder in which
to save the backed-up files.
2 Connect your Velo 1 to your desktop computer, and start
H/PC Explorer.
3 In H/PC Explorer, select the files and folders you want to
back up, and drag them to the folder you created, or use
the Cut and Paste commands to move the files from your
Velo 1 to the backup folder.
PIM data — PIM data can be preserved by synchronizing your
Velo 1 with Microsoft Schedule+ or Microsoft Outlook™ on your
desktop computer immediately before upgrading.
To synchronize PIM data
1 Connect your Velo 1 to your desktop computer and start
H/PC Explorer.
If you have set H/PC Explorer to synchronize on
connecting, synchronization will take place automatically.
2 If you have not set H/PC Explorer to synchronize on
connecting, in H/PC Explorer on your desktop computer,
click Synchronize Now on the Tools menu.

H/PC Explorer.
2 In Microsoft Exchange or Outlook on your desktop
computer, click H/PC Inbox Transfer on the Tools
menu.
3 Under Transfer messages from your H/PC, select the
messages you want to save.
4 Click OK.
5 Select a folder to transfer messages to, or click New
Folder create a new folder.
Note: The original dates and times of the messages you
transfer will be changed to the date and time the at which
messages were transferred.
1b: Remove the main battery (or batteries)
and the backup battery from your Velo 1.
Important: You must remove all batteries before you install the
Windows CE 2.0 ROM Miniature Card. If you don’t, the upgrade will
not work properly.
1c: Install the Windows CE 2.0 ROM Miniature
Card.
Warning: When you install the Windows CE 2.0 ROM Miniature
Card, all information on your Velo 1 will be erased. Before you install
the ROM Miniature Card, back up all information by following the
procedures described in the previous section, “Save your Velo 1 data.”
10
Step 1: Set Up Your Velo 1 for the Upgrade
To install the Windows CE 2.0 ROM Miniature Card
1 Back up all files on your Velo 1 as described above.

Miniature Card, you will be unable to use the Flash/ROM Miniature
Card slot for other cards, such as flash memory upgrades or programs
that come on Miniature Cards.
1d: Install more RAM in your Velo 1.
If you do not have 12 MB of RAM installed on your Velo 1 you
will need to install enough RAM to bring your device up to 12
MB in order to proceed with the upgrade.

What’s on Your Velo 1?
Your Velo 1 uses Microsoft Windows CE, which is based on the
Microsoft Windows 95 operating system. It includes familiar
components such as the Start button and Start menu, taskbar,
desktop, browser, menu bar and toolbar, Control Panel, and
shortcuts.
Your Velo 1 also includes programs for your Velo 1 that help you
manage your schedule, retrieve and store information,
communicate with others via e-mail, and explore the World Wide
Web. These programs work alone and in conjunction with your
desktop computer. You can synchronize Schedule+ information
and transfer files between your handheld PC (H/PC) and your
desktop computer to ensure you’re always working with current
information.

Tips for Using Your Velo 1
• Press the Power button to turn your H/PC on and off. If you go
several minutes without working on your Velo 1, it will preserve
your work and suspend itself, shutting off automatically. Just press
the Power button to start working right where you left off.
• You should use the supplied stylus to touch the screen. There’s no
harm in using your fingertip, but many features require the stylus for
finer pointing.
Warning: Don’t use sharp implements, such as keys or pens, to
touch the screen. These objects can damage the screen.
• The Velo 1 includes a built-in modem for connecting to a
telephone line. You can use the modem to explore the Internet,
send and receive e–mail, send faxes, and connect to other
services. Simply plug a standard telephone line into the RJ-11 jack
to the left of the screen (see the figure on page 37).

Battery tips
The Velo 1 has two kinds of batteries:
◗ Main batteries power your H/PC during normal mobile use.
◗ The backup battery provides enough power to keep your data
safe if no other power source (main batteries or external
power) is available. The backup battery was installed at the
factory, but it must be activated before it will protect your
data.
You can run your Velo 1 virtually anywhere on battery power. If
you’re close to an AC power outlet, you can connect to the power
adapter that is supplied with your Velo 1.
Protecting your data during low power
If you are using AA batteries, do not remove these batteries from
your Velo 1 until you are ready to replace them with fresh
batteries. Even when AA batteries are too low to turn on the H/
PC, they may still have enough power to protect your saved data
for more than a week.
If you remove the main batteries, the backup battery will maintain
your data for one or two days; however, to ensure maximum
protection, you should leave the main batteries installed and
replace them with a fresh pair as soon as possible.

To replace the backup battery
When you see a message that you need to replace the backup
battery, follow these steps:
1 Make sure the main batteries are working, or plug the
Velo 1 into a wall outlet with the supplied AC power
adapter.
2 Remove the screw from the backup battery door, then
remove the door and the old battery.
3 Insert a CR2032 (or equivalent) lithium coin cell backup
battery.
The side marked with a + (plus sign) faces up.
4 Replace the backup battery door and the screw.
To connect to external power
Warning: Use only Philips power adapters designed specifically for
use with the Velo 1; otherwise you may damage your H/PC.
1 Plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet.
2 Plug the AC power adapter into the DC jack on either
your Velo 1 or Velo Dock.
If the rechargeable battery pack is installed, the batteries will be
recharged while your H/PC is connected to AC power.
Note: If the rechargeable battery pack is installed, the first time you
connect your Velo 1 to AC power you should fully charge the battery
pack before you disconnect the AC power adapter. Charging takes about
two and a half hours. While the battery pack is charging, the green
recharging indicator light is on. The light turns off when charging is
complete.

Philips Velo™1 User’s Guide
Resetting your Velo 1
Occasionally, you will need to reset your Velo 1, for example, after
you restore data from your desktop computer or when the
operating system stops responding to your commands or stylus taps.
There are several methods for resetting, depending on the severity
of the problem. In most cases, you can reset your Velo 1 without
losing any data; however, to ensure the safety of your information
you should regularly back up your data to your desktop computer.
In general, the Reset program (reset.exe) is the most reliable
method for resetting your H/PC while preserving your data. The
Reset program is in the Velo Applications folder on your Velo 1.
To reset your Velo 1 using the Reset program
1 On the Start menu, tap Run.
2 In the run dialog box, type reset, and then tap OK.
3 In the Reset Velo 1 dialog box, tap Yes.
Important: Only when the Reset program fails to correct a problem
should you press the Reset button with the stylus. Pressing the Reset
button once should retain the data stored on your Velo 1; however,
pressing the Reset button multiple times will cause your Velo 1 to do a
full restart, erasing all information.
In the most severe cases, when your Velo 1 doesn’t respond to the
Reset button or if you forget your password, you may need to
perform a full restart by removing all power, including the main
and backup batteries, from your Velo 1. Resetting in this way
erases all files you’ve saved and all programs you’ve installed on
your Velo 1. If you perform a full restart, you will have to reinstall
the software on the Philips Velo 1 Upgrade CD.
