can u elobarate your question .., what is the database in the windows mobile 7., or you want to dump a new database in it.

I think you mean "Windows Phone 7." Windows Mobile 7 is the name of a Microsoft project that was cancelled and never given light of day just before the Windows Phone 7 project started.

The initial version of Windows Phone 7 has no managed support for database access. The only way it can interact with the outside world is through HTTP based communication. You will need to host a web service that your WP7 application can use to communicate with the server. Note that SQL Server does have built in support for exposing functionality as web services.

Look at SqlCE.
Reference: System.Data.SqlServerCE
Namespace: System.Data.SqlServerCe
Look at SqlCeConnection and SqlCeCommand methods.
con = new SqlCeConnection(ConnectionString);

/// <summary>
/// Read rows from a specified database table
/// </summary>
/// <param name="table">Name of table to read from</param>
/// <returns>DataTable containing the rows read.</returns>
public static DataTable Read(string table)
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();
    using (SqlCeCommand cmd = new SqlCeCommand("SELECT * FROM " + table, con))
        SqlCeDataAdapter da = new SqlCeDataAdapter(cmd);
    return dt;
