If you push down on the buttons too hard, especially the power
button, you will pop loose the button circuit board, which is
located just below the battery (See battery info above).
This will cause your PPC to fail to turn on or worse.

A significant number
of PocketPC programs, notably Word, Excel and Media Player among others,
cannot see any files that are not placed in a root folder named "My
This is true for
files kept in the "main memory" as well as files stored on a
Compact Flash "Storage Card".
A folder named
"My Documents" must exist on the Storage Card's root
directory for these apps to be able to see their file types stored on
the card. (Beverly Howard Tip).
For the new owners
of the HP 520-548. Please note that you cannot create shortcuts with
the file explorer that comes with WinCE on your PPC. I
recommend that you download the Advanced Explorer
(which you can find on the Programs page) which will allow you to copy the
.exe file and paste it as a shortcut (using the stylus hold/right click
pop up menus or the toolbar options) where ever you want it.
If you do not want
to go that route, the only other option you have is to use the MS
ActiveSync explorer button (PPC must be sync with desktop to use) which
will let you create shortcuts like you do on the desktop by right clicking
(Click on photo below to enlarge for explorer button location).
If you just want to delete shortcuts or other files with the default
explorer program on your PPC, then you must click and hold the stylus down
on the file or shortcut name to enable the popup menu to appear then
choose delete. If you do not do it right, such as just clicking it
once and not holding the stylus down, the file or program will try to open
Microsoft MVP Ed Hansberry responded, pointing out that the answer will
depend on your setting for voice input (Settings > Input > Options
> Voice Recording Format). If you were to set it at the lowest
fidelity, 0.7Kb/sec, you could squeeze 13 hours into 32 megabytes.
(Actually, more like 12 hours, since you don't really get 32 megabytes of
memory on a 32Mb card.) .
As you would expect, the quality isn't very good at that setting, but if
you're just trying to capture information in a quiet environment, it's
probably good enough. If you need better fidelity, try a higher
setting--the higher the ratio of Kb to seconds, the higher the fidelity.
When I record a Note, I'm usually driving, and if I have the voice input
set at 0.7Kb/sec, the road noise causes it to be so garbled that I can't
understand it when I play it back. Since my Notes are usually short and I
usually erase them after a short time, I can afford the luxury of
31Kb/sec, which works beautifully. Experiment and see what works the best
for you. (PPC Magazine Tip).
