EXPANSYS USB Sync & Charge Cable for iPAQ h19/22/38/39/54 – サポートフォーラム

Software required? [EXPANSYS USB Sync & Charge Cable for iPAQ h19/22/38/39/54 - 125937]

I was wondering whether it is possible to connect the iPAQ (I have a hx2790) to a computer via a USB cable (and not a cradle). The problem is I cannot install activesync software on the work computers, as wish to use the iPAQ here as a flash drive, connecting via USB and being able to explore the files on the computer. Is this possible?

Without Activesync windows will not be able to recognise the iPAQ at all. So no, its not. -------------------------------------- I'm in your base killing your doods!
So its not possible to use the iPAQ in this way? Why is it that a £30 flash drive can plug into the USB to transfer files, but a £350 iPAQ cannot !! Some major design flaw here if this is the case !!

Its because the iPAQ works very diferently to a USB flash drive. The iPAQ is not supposed to be seen as flash storage. -------------------------------------- I'm in your base killing your doods!
True, but wouldn't it have been a pretty simple thing for HP to have built in to the device ??

Why would they want to when that function is supported by activesync? Yeah i can sort of see your point, but what would you intend tpo do with it that you couldnt do by just buying a USB card reader???? -------------------------------------- I'm in your base killing your doods!
