Hi,

Most PDA's have a software disk that should be installed before plugging in to the computer. Is the PDA windows based? If yes you will also need to download Microsoft Activesync for free from Microsoft Site. ActiveSync is used to sync the contacts, emails, etc between your desktop / laptop and your device.

Hope this helps

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.

The syncronizing software for OZ-290HII will not work with my computer,though it installs,it keeps saying (file export failed) and this unit has a USB cable. I followed all the instructions but that...


Hello Sr,

Kindly read this, it may help you.

When the software that lets your computer communicate with your PDA acts up, always check the cables and connections first. Is the USB (Universal Serial Bus) or serial cable connected securely to the PDA (or cradle) and the PC? Is the PDA seated properly in its cradle if it uses one? If everything is in place, visit the palmOne (www.palmone.com/us/support/downloads) or Windows Mobile (www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile) Web site and download the latest version of the HotSync or ActiveSync software that is compatible with your PDA and your computer's OS. Keeping synchronization software up-to-date is important because newer versions fix compatibility problems and usually add new features.

If you have a Palm OS PDA that uses a USB connection, sometimes incompatibilities exist between Windows and the software that you can resolve only by running a special USB utility found at the PalmOne download site mentioned previously. Select your hardware from the drop-down list and click the USB Registry Utility link. Download the USBRegClean.exe file, navigate to the downloaded file, and double-click the icon to install it. Reboot your computer and reinstall the Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager.

Bought TX but have no desktop software cd


HI,
Yes if you go to palm.com you will find a section for support. You can download everything you need there to get your PDA up and running. Once you have the software installed on your computer you will want to go in and enter all your information like names and addresses in your contact section. Once you have that all done you connect the PDA to the computer by using the usb cord and then hit HotSync. You can go back later and update any of your infomation right in the PDA itself. Best wishes. Let me know if you need any other help with this.

Won't sync from iPAQ to PC


Sounds like you've got the ActiveSync setting for the Calendar set to one-way from computer to PDA, not Synchronise, which means the computer will always over-write anything it finds on the PDA that isn't in the computer. Try uninstalling/reinstalling ActiveSync, and pay particular attention to all the settings when you reconnect the PDA and it sets up the connection - from memory at this point you can define the "direction" of synchronisation.

Lost calendar on hotsync


The information is unfortunately lost.

Unless you synced the palm on another computer, the palm only can back up the information when synced.

So if you sync it and the computer overwrites the handheld, the information never made it to the computer and thus cannot be restored.

The only thing you could check would be the backup folder in the palm directory under your profile name. Palm puts all of the .prc/.pdb files in there when you sync.
