The Hewlett-Packard (HP) HX4700 is a hand-held computer system that can access e-mails, edit word processor documents and perform many other tasks. As with most computers, you need to keep the operating system and support files up-to-date. On the HX4700, this would apply to the ROM files. To upload these files to your HP, you can either directly save the contents via USB data cable to the portable computer, or upload the information via SD memory card.
