IPAQ 1950 suddenly will not connect to PC to allow sync

IPAQ 1950 has worked fine for 2 years. Suddenly it will not connect to my PC to allow sync via activesync. Nothing has changed on the PC or the handheld. Checked all suggestions given by Activesync help sites (connection settings, firewall settings,etc.) This problem has come up a few times over the past 2 years. but a reboot of both devices usually solved it. Now nothing seems to help. When I open activesync on the PC and go to file/conncetion settings I have the ability to "ping" the USB port that I am using to connect the handheld. With the handheld connected and turned on (logged in via password) I ping the the port and get the response "Device Not Detected" . This happens even though Activesync starts automatically when I plug the handheld into the USB port (the PC also indicates a network connection when I plug the handheld in. One last thing. On the handheld, if I go into Activesync under status, I see an error code 608 (no explanation of what that is). Any help you can provide is greatly apreciated. Handheld works great. Just can no longer sync up to Outlook on any PC. (PS: I ordered an replacement sync cable in case it's a hardware issue). Thanks.

Same problem, on four computers with two iPAQ 1950's. I installed ActiveSync 4.5, and all works fine now. This link will get you to AS 4.5:

This SHOULD work for all PDAs, but I have only used it for the 1950.

Ipaq 4700 active sync problems


i can try to help you , first are you using xp or vista ? and which version of active sync ? i found that after upgrading to active sync v4.5 my ipaq 4700 refused to sync , i have xp home , so by trial and error i learned several things , i tryed my usb cable in every usb slot i had , only to find some usb ports are more friendly to certain devices , for a lack of better terms , i deleted all partnerships in active sync , found that i needed to make sure active sync is not running on ipaq , go to settings / memory / running programs on the ipaq , stop all running programs , turn the ipaq off , then on the pc made sure firewall not locked , plug usb cable into pc , i leave mine in a port permanently , plug into the ipaq , it automatically turns the ipaq on , then i see 2 icons in pc system subtray start blinking , at that point i know sync is going to work , then active sync icon starts turning , lit up in green , and asks do you want to create a partnership , yes , follow prompts , and thats what has been working for me , now if i was to put the usb cable into a different port , no doubt it would give me grief , and the same thing with my phone and active sync , make sure active sync is not running on the device , sometimes i have to reset the unit , ipaq or phone , make sure unit is turned off them make the connection , give it a try .

Ipaq 4100 problem syncronizing with outlook on new laptop


you are now using outlook 2003 , probably cache , this means all the email is on your laptop. when you sync it will sync all the email (thousands). initialise your ppc (back to factory default). set up the sync via usb cable. then sync via bluetooth . then you are fully sync. now setup an auto backup of your email data (daily). if after some time , you have sync problem again , initialise the ppc, restore from backup and you are back to sync (last full backup). try this , you will never need to do it all again.

When I connect my iPAQ to my PC, it will not recognize the device


It shouldn?t take more than 10 to 15 seconds for Active Sync to detect the iPAQ once it is inserted in the cradle and it turns on. First off you need to update to the latest version of Active Sync which is 4.5. Lots of synchronization issues have been fixed since 3.7 so here is the link to the download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9e641c34-6f7f-404d-a04b-dc09f8141141&DisplayLang=en A couple of times over the past few years I?ve gotten a non recognition error as well. Each time I?ve been able to get away with removing and installing the latest version and my problem has been solved.
