2. is there any way to connect it via USB to a Mac?

3. when i use a jpg for the Today background it it shows compression artifacts despite it being a good quality images, why is that?

1, just check that the software is WM5 compatible, winCE stuff is sometimes ok, there are loads out there

2, sorry cant help, never use mac

3, make sure the file is saved at 320x240 pixels, else the os will shrink/expand it

Try searching Pocket PC, PPC and WM5, most pocket PC and PPC stuff works and all WM5 will work

2. is there any way to connect it via USB to a Mac?

I'm not sure if there is a sync client to use with mac, however if you use WM5torage you can turn your phone into a USB Mass Storage device which should recognise on Macs and let you copy stuff across.

Personally I've found that most software DOES work on WM5

The mass storage works but probably not on a mac - the mass storage software did seem to screw up my SD but this could have been caused by something else .... after ripping one apart I see they are on a very very flimsy PCB
