    have not up graded its still active sync 4.

    i think my problem may be that my pc is not recognising that i have plugged the device into the usb hub . when i connect my phone the pc says found new hardware or what ever but when i plug in the axim nothing comes up and the active sync i have installed can not find it

    I have tried all of the suggestions from all different sources and my Axim is still not recognized. I had to recover my PC recently, but successfully synced my PDA since then. The only thing I changed was to downgrade my BIOS to solve a problem with my Fn keys. Could that have made a difference?

    clarification of my problem. active sync 4.0 is installed and ok. i plug in my axim pda with usb lead but the pc does not say its there when i try to connect active sync says it cannot find the device. i think its some thing to do with my pc not recognising that i have plugged in the usb lead. i dont think its a problem with the pda its self now as my son plugged in his memory stick and it did not find that either. thank you all for your help i think i will take it in to get the usb ports checked out..

I had the same problem and got around it by uninstalling and re-installing ActiveSync, then doing a soft reset on the PDA.

Have you upgraded to 4.5 active sync. If so turn off the advance usb function located in setting and then connections. This worked for my axim x51v

    Hi



    MS will sugesst that you download active sync 4.5. If your usb ports are not located on the computer try connecting directly to the computer. You could try to refresh your usb ports by going into control pannel then systems and then hardware. The usb ports are at the bottem of the list of devices. Right click on the usb ports and select detect changes. However, what I told you earlier is what I had to do after spending a week or more trying to use the software that came with the axim x51v.

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50 and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to a computer using a sync cable.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync connection is successful.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

Well windows vista doesnt need any software to run the axim, it has a hardware feature on it to detect and sync to it. Ive never heard of this.

IPAQ H5555 connection problems


Hi, This could be due to a few issues, try these soloutions in order below: 1) If you have a jacket connected to the ipaq it could be preventing the ipaq from locating correctly on the connector. Remove jacket and try insering again. 2) Check that active sync is set up to detect the device on the usb port. The cradle for the ipaq may have a serial and usb connector. Ensure that just the usb connector is attached to your laptop. Try connecting again. 3) You may need to uninstall the USB cradle if it was connected before installing active sync. Try the following steps if this was the case: a) unplug the USB cradle b) uninstall active sync c)Click start then click control pannel then click system. Then click on the hardware tab. Look for the device under USB, right click on the device and then select uninstall. d) restart the laptop e) Install active sync f) ONLY after active sync has installed you can now plug the cradle back into the usb socket. g) Now connect the ipaq, it should now detect it.

Sync problem


I assume you use activesync. Check in the options that it is set to synchronise this data. if you have already done this try reinstalling activesync or installing the newest version, 4.0.

Connecting Axim plus Palm on the Same PC


I may be wrong but each PDA (assuming you are connecting different brands) have different drivers. I connected a Toshiba and Dell PDA and each required their respective install disk with their respective drivers. Then I configured each pda using the Active Sync Connection Wizard. Everything ran smoothly after that.

Help active sync will stay in limbo attempting to connect to cradled axim


Does your system detect the handheld? After you connect the cradle or cable to the computer, then you should be prompted to install drivers for the handheld. Make sure that Dell Pocket PC appears in the Device Manager.

USB Sync Cable


I dont' think so. No other PDA does - it would be quite a drain on the USB port. It isn't like powering the tiny LED in an optical mouse.
