Question about HP Jornada 548 Pocket PC

HP Jornada 548 files won't sync with Vista PC

My PDA is about 5 years old. Previously I could sync using Active Sync. Now I have a full PDA, a new Dell with Vista, and am unable to get the files from the PDA into the PC. The Windows Media Center can't help me. Any smart way to get about 1500 contacts and a couple years of Outlook calendar into my PC? Or should I abandon Vista and install XP?

    Already have the Windows Media Center. But it won't work with the HP Jornada. Need some in-between program that will "translate" between the obsoleted ActiveSync and the new WMC.

    Active-Sync doesn't run on Vista. Possibly Vista syncing program will be incompatible with your Jornada. No surprise there.

HP Ipaq h1940 won't sync with Vista


Hi. While holding power button, and pressing reset will do a hard reset to your PDA (reset the device to its factory default settings). So if your PDA is working well, don't do it. As for the syncronization with your Vista PC; Winodws XP uses the ActiveSync software for syncronization, and for Windows Vista, Microsoft developed a brand new syncronization software called "Windows Mobile Device Center". It can be downloaded here: (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center-download.mspx). When you download/install this software to your PC, you should be able to connect your PDA to your PC without any problem, and definitely without changing any OS in your PDA or PC. Hope this helps.

Sync problem w/outlook contact


I use my 548 to keep my work and home versions of Outlook syncronised. I have about 70 contacts stored. Three suggestions.. 1) Do you have enough free memory? Emails can take up megabytes, and for that reason I choose not to sync emails. 2) Are all of your contacts in the same Contacts folder? I have two contacts folders on my home Outlook, one for me and one for my wife, I only sync my contacts to my 548. 3) In Activesync, click on Options, Sync options, contacts, settings and make sure that "Syncronize all contacts" is checked
