I've just unpacked my new MC55 and the laser light wont come on to read a barcode. Why?

You have to download and install on your PC Datawedge V3.3 (or later).

 DataWedge V3.3 for the MC55

Note: if you install Datawedge and have it running, the camera will no longer work. Disable Datawedge to use the camera.

How do I watch youtube videos on the MC55? If I go to and try and watch a video I get an error message.

Go to on the MC55 in Internet Explorer and then tap on "More" across the top. On the next screen scroll down to  the 'YouTube' link. Tap on that and install the CAB file. Use this instead of Internet Explorer to view YouTube content on the MC-55. Watch a video - click here.

How do I warm boot the MC55?

Simply hold down the power key for 5 seconds and then let go. The unit should warm boot.
