How to play video and music files on your Papago R5800

Postby antyong (retired) » Sat Jul 11, 2009 4:11 am

By default, Papago R5800 is a navigation-only device. Since it runs on WinCE 6.0, if Papago R5800 owners are able to exit the Papago X3 program back to WinCE, the R5800 becomes a mobile computer.

Below are some simple steps on how to make your R5800 play video and music files. Try this at your own risk!
  1. Copy your video/music files into a blank SD card
  2. Create papago.ini and copy into the SD card. Papago.ini can be a blank file with no content.
  3. Place SD card into R5800's SD card slot
  4. Press the reset button with a pen
  5. After reset, R5800 will start with WinCE
  6. Use Windows Media Player to play your video/music files

Note: As long as you don't change any control panel setting and delete any files, your R5800 should be fine :)

Thanks for the tips. I've been reading on WinCE, especially on how to get a small button on the Navi screen to do screen captures. At the moment, not successful yet.

I've got the MP3's in the SD card. Papago Maps are in the HDD. Hence, I'm using only one SD card.

For the time being, I've no idea how to do a screen capture at all. Could someone share some tips? Oh yes before I forget, could someone point to any how-to on contributing route or POI using R5800?
