Nightforce PDA Program Help

Good Evening to all,

So I will start with I'm not the most IT savy person in the world but I'm having some issues with getting the NF ballistic software to download to my Dell Axim x50 PDA. It is showing up as waiting to download and says it will do so during my next hotsync. I have tried everything that I can think of but still cannot get the download to happen. I have contacted Dell they were not any assistance with the issue. I do not have the origional Dell PC software but I have downloaded everything it says that it required. Any suggestions or info is greatly appreciated. I dont know if it might be an issue on my PC. I have an older desktop that we do not use anymore that I pulled out to do this. I thought I was having issues with the PDA but I took it into a tech shop and was told everything was good to go with the PDA.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Christian

    If you are having trouble synchronising to your PDA from your Desktop.

    See if you can just transfer it onto your PDA memory card. You might even be able to put the card into a camera or something else and download to that.

    Then put the card back into your PDA and open the file with it.

    If you can't get it to work. Get an Android mobile phone and use "Shooter" ballistic software. Its great mate!

    Intstead of relying on this through syncing which may or may not be set up to link this specific file, install the file on your computer and drag and drop it.

    1) Copy the NF software to a file "my documements" or such on your computer
    2) Plug in the cable on your PDA/Axiam
    3) Go to "computer" Drag the file from your computer to your PDA
    4) Click on the file on your PDA, should prompt you to install.
