Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
When I try to copy WMA files to the Axim with Media Player, or with Windows Explorer, I lose the PC/ Pocket PC connection every time. It locks up the application and then it disconnects. Only tiny files can be transferred without causing this problem. I have been working on this for days now, and nothing seems to work. I have the XP Service Pak 1 installed. Please, any help is really appreciated.

I have an Axim and a Dell Optiplex GX150 running Win XP SP1, and I'm running ActiveSync 3.6. (I saw the same problems with ActiveSync 3.5 from the CD.) I deleted the partnership and re-synced. Outlook syncing works fine (for the most part, see below) but file transfers (installs) and Avantgo time out. There is some kind of timing issue going on here. Small data transfers work fine, but larger ones do not (large syncs, like the first sync after creating a partnership) also failed. My guess is that the Axim is not seeing data from the PC as often as it thinks it should and prematurely times out. There are a lot of people seeing this, Rollie. I'm not sure if it's a USB issue (one lady fixed it by buying a USB 2.0 board) or a driver issue or an ActiveSync issue or some combination, but there is definitely something going on here that a number of people are encountering.

Try deleting the partnership in ActiveSync on the PC, and then create a new partnership. I saw this problem, when I connected the first time to a PC. I tried connecting to a second PC, and had no problem. When I went back to the first, it required that I create a new partnership, and no problem with the connection.
