Cannot connect my PDA to PC


Normally for when you connect any device to pc using USB port, windows detects it. Sometime it may take time.
Few initial things you may check....

1) You must have your PDA in ON condition
2) If PDA is not getting connected on port, try connecting to other USB port (assuming that pc normally have more than one USB port)
3) Make sure the cable that you are using between PDA to PC is working properly (normally you can check this by using other cable)
4) If you have intalled some anti virus program on your pc then check the settings of same.
5) last but not least check the settings of window's firewall (part of OS)

If everything of above is fine then either USB ports of pc or of PDA might not be working.

All the best!!

PC/PDA "connected" yet PC won't read PDA

try syncing through bluetooth, there could be a problem with the cradle. i have had an issue very similar to yours and had to do a soft reset on my pda. then set up your device to use a blue tooth connection( you may need to buy a bluetooth dongle for your pc).

E405 screen alignment

I don't think the scratch has anything to do with the screen alignment. You might end up replacing the screen and the alignment problem will persist. The alignment screen coming up is probably due to other hardware problems, and it should be covered by a warranty if you got even a limited one on the demo, its not your fault for causing the scratch on the screen, it probably has nothing to do with it. you shouldn't have waited a year with this problem. about replacing the screen- try getting a dead toshiba pda that uses the same screen from ebay, one that still has a screen intact, but don't go over your head with replacing it, don't go beyond a point where you don't remember anymore what goes where. Good luck

Problem serial connection e400 using cradle

I am not 100% sure if I am correct in this, but I am quite sure that the e400 does not support a serial connection. Only the e800 does.
