I'm having problems with my battery in my old(ish) PPC

http://smartphonemag.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=18753

Q: I'm having problems with my battery in my old(ish) PPC - my Pocket PC switches off at 10...20...30% charge level, unlike when it was new. Any solution to this? A: Nope, except for getting a new one. Aging batteries will cause problems like this. An example: my iPAQ 2210, when it was brand new (some 2.5 years ago), switched off at 2% charge level. Now, after 2.5 years of continuous use, it switches off at 23-24%, which shows the battery is indeed aging.

A: if your system sees the card, just go to it with the built-in File Explorer and when you see the backup file (it's in either the root of the card or in \My Document, depending on whether the latter is existing or not), just click it. iPAQ Backup will be started at once.
