Device Name not unique. This device name is already in use.
I let my Ipaq to discharged the battery over the weekend. Today, when I plugged it to my pc, to charge and sync., I chose "guess partnership" by mistake, and I started installing some programs.
When I realized about my mistake, I unplugged it, and I plugged it again, and then I chose "standard partnership", when a window shows tha name of the device, and I click, the program displays the message:...
"Device Name not unique. This device name is already in use.
You must enter a different name for your mobile device".
I don´t know what to do, since I need to sync. all my information, using Outlook from my pc.

Re: Device Name not unique. This device name is already...
The name of the device is only what you want to call it, eg instead of ipaq call it tropflor, it's only a name in which the device is recognised by other devices and for sync purposes, but as in a pc, always back up your contacts and files, as pocket pcs are more likely to crash.

seem like all we get here are dead Ipaq.
why are you messing with this old device?
try a new battery, oops that costs money.
as does repairs on a device that has zero value.
why not mess with and old android phone, that has value.
ask here, be like only one playing Ipaq now.
PDA 2005 (as old as)
bad power supply ( weak)
bad battery charger chip inside.
this device has no value, really, why spend hard labor on such old tech? if compelled, buy 2 or 3 other dead 4360s ones, used off fleabay
to get one good one.
There is no PC made that will not fail.
consider this, if you had 2005 Toyoto car and the alternator went
bad , as all do about NOW. do you Boycott, Toyota.
nothing made by man lasts.
even earth is doomed, but not in 11 years.
I Also Had The Same Problem. Now I Fixed It. Go To Power In Settings. Click On The Advanced Tab. Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Device If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve The Problem. It Solved Mine. Thereafter Once, My Backlight Did Not Switch On. Fix This By Going Into Backlight Settings And Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Backlight If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve It. Then Soft Reset The Device To Change Settings. To Soft Reset, Find A Small Hole In The Left Hand Side Of The Device. Put Your Stylus In And PRESS ONLY ONCE. If You Keep It Pressed, Your Device Will Hard Reset. Don't Do That. Just Press ONCE.
I had the same issue. Got it fixed at PPCTechs at $60 + shipping. Better than buying a new device
The device doesn't exactly work like a computer...
It needs battery power to "remember" what the user does. When you remove the battery, you let it forget everything.
It's like how your car stereo loses it's memory channels whenever they do battery related work.
What I would HIGHLY suggest, is set Activesync to do a full backup EACH TIME the device connects (it's in Tools, Backup).
THEN, when he loses the information, you do a full restore.
That being said -- to do a "reboot" just push the reset button (small hole on bottom left side grip) with the stylus.
If you want a more thorough reboot, it's safe to just take the battery out for a few seconds. I do this about once a day.
Was it charging over the weekend? If not, try to recharge the device again... Those devices would on occasion drain the batter overnight -- didn't happen all the time and was apparently caused by unusual software/applications combinations... The battery could be going bad again as well.
