How do I load data on my Windows CE device?

Cause:

Not applicable

Answer:

You can connect the CE device to your PC via Microsoft ActiveSync, which you
can download for free from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsce/products/download/activesync.asp

ActiveSync enables Windows Explorer on the PC to see the CE computer's folders;
thus, files can be loaded on the Windows CE computer by using drag and drop.
Notes:

Ensure you are using ActiveSync 3.0 or later. Earlier versions are not as
reliable, particularly on Windows NT systems.
