How Do I Synchronize Calendar,
E-mail, Contact Data and More
between My HP iPAQ and PC
(installing Microsoft
ActiveSync and establishing
Partnerships)?
Synchronizing your HP iPAQ and your desktop, notebook, or

software that allows your HP iPAQ and your personal computer
to communicate with each other.
Before you connect your HP iPAQ to your computer, insert the
Companion CD into your computer and let the HP iPAQ Setup
Wizard guide you step-by-step in setting up your HP iPAQ and
computer.
Note: If the HP iPAQ Setup Wizard detects an earlier version
of ActiveSync or Outlook on your computer, it prompts you to
install the most recent version from the Companion CD. It is
recommended that you do so.
To run the HP iPAQ Setup Wizard and install Microsoft
ActiveSync:
1. Before you connect your HP iPAQ to your desktop, notebook,
or laptop computer with the desktop cradle or sync cable,

your personal computer, click Start > Programs > Microsoft
ActiveSync > Sync.
To find out how to resolve other error messages, see
“Troubleshooting,” in the User’s Guide located on the
Companion CD.
There are many error messages that can be received when
synchronizing. For the best answers to troubleshooting these
errors, refer to the Microsoft Pocket PC 2003 Web site at
www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/resources/support/pocketpc.
Fill in your region, your device, and your operating system, then
click the Get Support button. Select the Support Topic that best
applies to the error message you received.

must have a Wireless Access Point. These access points transmit
data to and from your wireless device. Your HP iPAQ can connect
directly to your wireless network through Wi-Fi. With Wi-Fi, you
can:
■
Access the Internet
■
Send and receive e-mail
■
Use hotspots for wireless connectivity
Setting Information
Before connecting to a network, you need to set up your HP iPAQ
with the necessary setting information for your network. The type
of information necessary to set up a network connection depends
on the type of network you are connecting to.
Option A: Home Wireless Network
If you have a wireless network in your home, you need to
determine the information you need to connect to the network.
Use whatever settings you specified when you installed your
wireless network to set up your HP iPAQ to connect to it.
15
Option B: Public Hotspots
If you want to connect to a wireless network at a public hotspot
(such as a library or coffee house), check with the establishment
to find out what setting information you need. Often there is a
brochure near the entrance that explains this information, but it is
also a good idea to check their Web site beforehand or call in
advance since you may need to set up a service account.
How Do I Connect to My Wireless
Home Network?
To start using your HP iPAQ in your home as a wireless device,
you need to connect to your wireless network. To connect to your
wireless network, you must have the following information:
■
Name of your wireless home network also known as SSID.
Service Set Identifier (SSID) is a sequence of characters that
uniquely identifies your network. This ID number uses a
maximum of 32 characters and is case sensitive.
■
Any network data encryption setting, such as WEP.
Encryption is a conversion process that is used for protecting
data. Wired Equivalent (WEP) is a security protocol.
Automatically Connecting to a Network
1. To turn on Wi-Fi from the Launch Page or traditional Today
screen, tap the Wireless icon (
), and then tap the Wi-Fi
button.
2. If one or more networks are present, the Network indicator
icon (
) appears in the Navigation bar. Tap the network you

from your service provider or by accessing the service provider’s
Web site.
Once you have purchased this service, you will be able to connect
to their hotspots using your HP iPAQ. Some public places may
even provide free hotspot connection.
Note: If you experience problems connecting to the hotspot
location, you need to contact the service provider.
Do you want to learn more about:
■
setting up a proxy server?

How Do I Configure My Wireless
Settings to Use iPAQ Mobile Media?
The Media Control, Media Stream, and Media Copy features
of iPAQ Mobile Media can only be used within a wireless
network. Refer to the Special Features Guide to get specific
details about the iPAQ Mobile Media features.
21
Your HP iPAQ comes with integrated Wi-Fi wireless networking.
However, to use the wireless features, you must also have a
working Wi-Fi wireless network.
The Media Control, Media Stream, and Media Copy modes in
iPAQ Mobile Media appear gray, when:
■
You do not have a wireless network.
■
You have not turned on the Wi-Fi networking feature of your
HP iPAQ.
■
Your wireless settings on your HP iPAQ are incorrectly
configured to connect to your network.
■
You are outside the range of your wireless network.
■
You have not installed the Mobile Media for PC components
onto the personal computers connected to your wireless
network or they are not currently running.
22
Note: In addition to setting up a wireless network, you must
install the iPAQ Mobile Media for PC components on personal
computers connected to your wireless network. To install the
Mobile Media for PC components, insert the Companion CD that
came with your HP iPAQ into your personal computer. Select
Install Mobile Media for PC from the main menu. Mobile
Media for PC is only supported for personal computers running
Windows XP. It cannot be installed on personal computers
running Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows 98 or
Windows 95.
To set up your HP iPAQ to correctly connect to your wireless
network, you will need to:
1. To turn on Wi-Fi from the Launch page or traditional Today
screen, tap the Wireless icon (
), and then tap the Wi-Fi
button.

How Do I Find the Media Servers and
Media Players that I Can Access with
iPAQ Mobile Media?
When you launch iPAQ Mobile Media, it scans your wireless
network and identifies all the media servers and media players
that are available. When a new media server or player becomes
available, an icon is displayed in the Navigation bar. When you
click on this icon, the names of each media server or player
display. When a media server or player is shut down, you will
also be notified through this same icon in the Navigation bar.
Tapping this icon shows the media server or player that is no
longer available.
25
Note: All media servers and players are not simultaneously
identified. It may take up to 30 seconds to identify available
media servers and players on your wireless network.
By selecting Refresh Servers and Players from the Wrench
menu, you can manually scan your wireless home network for
available media servers and players. In iPAQ Mobile Media, tap
any of the modes except Home Control to access the Wrench
menu.
26
How Do I Use Windows Media Player
to Play Copy-Protected Music and
Video on My HP iPAQ?
Music and video files are typically copy-protected for two
reasons:
■
Music and videos purchased from various online stores are
encoded with copy protection (also known as digital rights
management or DRM). DRM is used to implement the
licensing agreement you purchased for each individual
media. This usually restricts how many times the media can
be copied or the number of devices the media can be played
on.
■
Using Windows Media Player, you can also add
copy-protection to music that you own (traditional music
CDs). For instance, you can add copy-protection to music
that is copied onto your personal computer in the Microsoft
.wma format.
27
■
Just like the music that you purchase, this copy-protection
restricts how many devices that can play your media content.
By default, Windows Media Player will add copy-protection
to music that you copy to your personal computer.
Note: To transfer and play copy-protected music and videos on
your HP iPAQ, you must use Windows Media Player.
To transfer copy-protected files to your HP iPAQ, follow these
steps:
1. Place your HP iPAQ in its desktop cradle or connect it to the
sync cable.
2. Open Windows Media Player on your personal computer.
3. From the Media Guide view, select Copy to CD or Device
from left menu.
4. Select the music you want to copy from the Items to Copy
drop-down menu.
5. Find and select your device in the Items on Device
drop-down menu.
28
6. Select Copy in the upper-right corner.
Note: You cannot use iPAQ Mobile Media to play
copy-protected media in any mode or use the Media Copy
feature with copy-protected media. To successfully copy any
copy-protected media to your HP iPAQ, you must use Windows
Media Player on your personal computer to copy the media to
your HP iPAQ. You then must use Windows Media Player on
your HP iPAQ to play copy-protected media.
29
The following table lists the various media formats that you can
play with your HP iPAQ and the media players that can play
them.

How Do I Restore My HP iPAQ Default
Settings and Erase All My Data
(Perform a Hard “Full” Reset)?
Perform a hard reset when:
■
You want to clear all programs and data from main memory
(where data and programs you have loaded are stored).
■
You want to restore default settings.
■
A problem with your HP iPAQ is not fixed after a soft reset.
Performing a hard reset on your HP iPAQ does not erase
programs that came with your HP iPAQ. The information that you
have entered into your HP iPAQ will be erased. This information
(or data) includes your Word, photos, music files, and other
settings.
For more information about saving your data files, refer to “How
Do I Back Up and Restore My Data?” described in this
document.
If the battery installed in your HP iPAQ discharges completely,
your HP iPAQ operates as if a hard reset had been performed once
the battery has been recharged. Refer to “How Do I Check the
Battery Level?” in this document for more information.
Ä
CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your HP iPAQ returns to its
default settings and loses all information (files, settings, etc.) that is
recorded in main memory. Information stored in iPAQ File Store will
not be lost. For more information on using iPAQ File Store, refer to
“Learning the Basics” in the User’s Guide located on the Companion
CD. You will also need to re-establish your partnerships. For more
information on re-establishing your partnerships, refer to “How Do I
Synchronize Calendar, E-mail, Contact Data and More between My
HP iPAQ and PC (installing Microsoft ActiveSync and establishing
Partnerships)?”
37
To perform a hard reset:
1. Press and hold the iPAQ Mobile Media (
buttons on your HP iPAQ.
) and iTask (
)
2. While holding the iPAQ Mobile Media and iTask buttons,
use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom
of your HP iPAQ for about three seconds or until the screen
begins to fade.
3. When the iPAQ screen begins to fade, release the iPAQ
Mobile Media and iTasks buttons then remove the stylus
from the Reset button. The HP iPAQ resets and powers on.
If the HP iPAQ does not power on after a reset, try the following:
■ Check the battery door to ensure it is locked. If not,
replace the battery door by matching the tabs on the cover
to the latches on the HP iPAQ and snap it into place. This
action locks the battery door. If the battery door is not
locked, the HP iPAQ does not power on. For more
information, refer to “Managing the Battery” in the
User’s Guide located on the Companion CD.
■ Perform a soft reset on your HP iPAQ. Refer to “How Do
I Regain Functionality if My HP iPAQ Locks Up or Runs
Slowly (Perform a Soft “Normal” Reset)?” described in
this document.
38
How Do I Manage Available Storage?
Your HP iPAQ normally manages main memory (default
location) as available space back and forth between storage
memory (memory used to store data and document files) and
program memory (memory used to run programs) as needed.
Main memory is any type of memory, except storage cards or
iPAQ File Store. If the battery in your HP iPAQ completely
discharges, all of the files in main memory are lost. However, any
files that are stored on Secure Digital (SD), SDIO (Secure Digital
IO), or MultiMedia (MMC) cards or in the iPAQ File Store are
not lost.
If you have an iPAQ rx3700 series, the iPAQ File Store is
available for saving your files. By saving most of your files in
iPAQ File Store, you can take full advantage of the memory
capacity of your HP iPAQ. You can also store your data files on
storage cards.
If you have an iPAQ rx3100 or rx3400 series, it is recommended
that you save most of your files on SD or MMC cards to
maximize the main memory. By saving your data files to storage
cards, the iPAQ rx3100 or rx3400 series can use its main memory
to run programs.
However, there are a variety of ways you can manage storage
space yourself to maximize the memory capacity of your HP
iPAQ. You can choose any or all of the options below.
Option A: Using Main Memory
Main memory is any type of memory, except SD and MMC
storage cards or iPAQ File Store. The preinstalled applications on
your HP iPAQ use the main memory. Also, many of your data
files are stored in main memory.
To check the amount of main memory on your HP iPAQ, click
Start > Settings > Memory.
39
Option B: Using iPAQ File Store
Files that are stored in iPAQ File Store are not deleted if the
battery dies or if you perform a full (hard) reset.
Note: The size of iPAQ File Store depends on the model of your
HP iPAQ. Refer to the information below to determine the size of
iPAQ File Store for your HP iPAQ.
To store files in iPAQ File Store:
1. Browse for programs and files in your HP iPAQ by tapping
Start > Programs > File Explorer.
2. Copy the programs or files you want to store:
❏
To select one file to copy, tap and hold to highlight the
file.
❏
To select several files to copy, tap and drag to highlight
the files; then tap and hold the files.
3. In the pop-up menu, tap Copy.
4. Open iPAQ File Store by tapping Start > Programs > File
Explorer > My Documents > My Device > iPAQ File
Store.
5. At the bottom of the screen, tap Edit > Paste.

How Do I Back Up and Restore My
Data?
It is good practice to regularly back up the data in your HP iPAQ
onto on your personal computer. This reduces the chance of
having to re-enter lost information into your HP iPAQ.
Because you already have a partnership between your HP iPAQ
and your personal computer, it is easy to set ActiveSync to create
a backup of your data each time you connect the two to
synchronize.
To create a backup file of the contents of your HP iPAQ,
1. Connect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer with the
sync cable.
2. On your personal computer, click Start > Programs >
Microsoft ActiveSync > Tools > Backup/Restore... >
Backup tab.
❏
To let ActiveSync automatically create a backup file
called Backup.stg (the .stg stands for “storage”), click
OK.
❏
To use a different filename for the backup file, click
Change and type the new filename.
3. Click Automatically back up each time the device
connects and click OK.
Ä
CAUTION: The restore process removes all information from your
Pocket PC and replaces it with the information in the backup file. Once
started, you cannot cancel the restore process.
To use your backup file in your personal computer to restore the
contents of your HP iPAQ:
1. On your HP iPAQ, close all applications and connect it to
your personal computer.
2. On your personal computer, open Microsoft ActiveSync by
going to Start > Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync.
43
3. In the ActiveSync Tools > Backup/Restore... > Restore tab.
4. Locate the backup file and click OK.
How Do I Determine if the Battery is
Charging?
If the battery is charging, the Power Indicator on the front of your
HP iPAQ flashes amber.
If the amber light is not on:
■
Try disconnecting the AC Adapter from the HP iPAQ and
reconnecting it to make sure the connection is not loose.
■
Take the HP iPAQ out of the desktop cradle or disconnect it
from the sync cable, then reinsert or reconnect it.
■
Perform a soft reset on the HP iPAQ. To perform a soft reset
on your HP iPAQ, see “How Do I Regain Functionality if My
HP iPAQ Locks Up or Runs Slowly (Perform a Soft
“Normal” Reset)?” described later in this document.
Another way to check whether the battery is charging is to tap
Start > Settings > System tab > Power. If the battery is charging,
the Main Battery indicator moves from left to right and State:

44
How Do I Check the Battery Level?
To check the battery level, tap Start > Settings > System tab >
Power > Main tab. You can view the amount of battery power
remaining for both the main battery and the backup battery.
If the battery charge level is low, connect to AC power using
the desktop cradle or the sync cable, or change the battery. For
information on purchasing a spare battery or Extended Battery,
visit the HP Web site at www.hp.com/go/ipaqaccessories.
Ä
CAUTION: It is recommended that you not allow the battery
installed in your HP iPAQ to discharge completely. Doing so will not
harm your HP iPAQ or battery, but you lose all data that is not stored
in main memory. Discharging the battery completely is similar to
performing a hard reset. Refer to “How Do I Restore My HP iPAQ
Default Settings and Erase All My Data (Perform a Hard “Full”
Reset)?” in this document for more information.
