Windows CE vs 4.0 and higher ?

I have an HP iPAQ 3950 and want to upgrade the operating system but I am baffled as where I can obtain it. I have looked on eBay, Amazon etc and it doesn't appear to be a free Microsoft download. So my question is: where can i obtain version 4.0 or 5.0 of Windows CE for my PDA ?

Thanks.

Do you know that this is almost first MS version? This is the first version that supports normal file system. I'm not sure that you have a chance to update it on your device.

There is none available, thanks to HP.

HP releases there devices as Is meaning that it is very rare for HP to release a software update. I have had a few HP devices and there were no ROM updates. I suggest you get a HTC device.

You say Windows CE and your PDA. If it's PDA you should have Windows Mobile or, for old device, Pocket PC on it.
I don't know well all HP iPAQ PDA's, I had expirience with old models beginning from 2110, 39xx, 19xx. I can be wrong, but probably your PDA is 5-8 years old and has just Pocket PC version.
If it is PND (personal navigation device), it will be very difficult (or even imposible) to update the OS on your device.
