I used the Ipaq 55xx series - It does have Bluetooth, so connecting was smooth. It was actually surprising how well the Bluetooth connection worked, as i find Bluetooth to be fairly unreliable.

good luck.

Well but my back doesnt support bluetooth, what then? Bloetooth is very unreliable and slow indeed, but 10 years ago it was class =)

Sounds like you will only be able to use a Laptop/Desktop for setup and image viewing - the Ipaq will be useless i think.

Not really sure as i have not used one of the backs that had No Bluetooth.

but as yaya said:
49xx, 51xx, 21xx and 19xx were all good, either with Win Mobile 2003 or 6.0
You can use a cable or Bluetooth
But cant really emagine how. I just love that everything is being more complicated =)
At least were not bored :D

One, thing I found is that you have to do your own file management. A directory can only hold about 500 pictures and the camera will not put any more in. (I was at one shoot when this happened and thought the camera died, later transferred the images, tried the camera again and it worked, took a second to figure out what happened but I learned). So when the directory get close to 500, use the iPaq to select a new directory. My workflow is to select a new directory for every "look". (If you look at modern cameras, and have a large enough card, you actually see the camera create a new directory after about 500 shoots).

My only problem with my DM 20G (Modified to put a 60G drive in it) and 22wi, is that after the first 13 shots, the camera takes (what seems) forever to flush the buffer. After that it is not to bad but I wish it was a lot faster. But it seems like that best speed to the drive is 10M/sec and writing 40Meg files, takes at least 4 seconds, so shooting anything faster than every few seconds it is eventually going to hit the buffer.

Have you solved this?

There's just no way to run Capture V8 on current macs in order to "Arrange For Portable"
I have the same issue, green light on Valeo 22wi connected to 5GB digital magazine, but not storing photos!

I have not done the "Arrange for Portable" in a very long time, now I might be wrong but I think that is only useful if you want to do custom setting. I do everything through the iPaq, and shooting to the DM as to me it is a lot faster than shooting tethered..

First make sure you are running the correct software in the iPaq, I found two versions, I liked the new version but could not do any configuration of the 22wi, so had to go back to the old version. (I think the new version is designed for the Aptus backs and don't know how to handle the Valeo).

Go to the configuration screen on the iPaq (This is where you set the ISO/Camera and profiles) and create a directory to store the pictures in first, then select a name for the pictures, I think it can only be 4 characters. As it is DOS based the total length of the name can only be 8.3.

Click OK and you should be all set.

Take a picture, you should see the name under the thumbnail.
