Mio 168 pocket computer: Not connected Unable to synchronize

I have had no problems with the Mio but I had to re-format the laptop that I used for synchronization. I reloaded the Outlook and ActiveSynch on to the laptop, following the instructions I think although I probably connected the Mio before loading ActiveSynch. However i uninstalled and did it again. The Mio was detected OK but when I attempt to synchronize I get a message that there is no connection; I can not seem to get the laptop and the Mio to recognize that each one exists.

SOURCE: MS Outlook syncs calendar, notes but not contacts

Click on the hotsync icon in your system tray and then click "custom". That will bring up the list of things you are configured to sync with (conduits). For each of the ones you have problems with, click that conduit and then make sure it's set to sync the way you want...desktop overrides, handheld overrides, syncronize, etc. Potentially you have some of them selected as "do nothing". What shows up when I click custom from hotsync are the following Outlook Conduits: Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos. If you don't have those showing up, you need to update your Outlook conduits on your PC. If you have them, click to select the problem conduit, then click "change" and select what you want to have happen.

SOURCE: Hot sync does not work

"PLEASE SET SYNCHRONIZATION OPTION ENABLE SYNC WHEN OUTLOOK IN UI IN ORDER TO SYNC IN OFFLINE MODE" Just go to your Hotsync Manager icon Click Custom Click each Outlook conduit ex. Calendar Outlook Click Change Click Settings Check the Box that says Enable Synchronization when Outlook is Offline Then do same process for Contacts, Tasks and Memos. Wherever your updated data is..make sure you set Action of conduit to example: Desktop Overwrites HH (if your OUTLOOK has the most updated data.) Hope that resolves your problem.

SOURCE: HC SD card support for pocket pc


Unfortunately, Pocket PC devices with Windows Mobile 2003 OS do not support High Capacity SD (SDHC standard) cards.

However, some companies have created standard SD cards (Not SDHC) with capacities up to 4GB. These, sometimes, not always, work.

I would recommend you to purchase SD cards up to 2GB in size only which is the maximum size the SD standard has defined. If you would like to try the max capacity you can get, you can try some "SD standard extended, but not SDHC" SD cards up to 4GB. If you would like brand names, I could recommend you a few..

SOURCE: Sync iphone to outlook

I noticed this problem after the latest iphone update 2.1. It appeared that any events I entered on my iphone would not sync (transfer) to Outlook. However, it worked fine the other way (Outlook to iphone). What I finally noticed is that in Outlook, there is now two calendars under My Calendars: Outlook and Outlook Calendar. If I click Outlook Calendar, all the events I entered on my iphone appears on a seperate calendar. I don't know why there are two now, and it doesn't appear they can be merged. However, if I just use "calendar" instead of "Outlook calendar" when I enter events on my iphone, everything works and is on one calendar in Outlook. I don't know if that was unique to my case or if it will help anyone else.

How do I change the language in my Mio 168 pc, from italian to english ?

I had exactly this problem with my pocket PC Mio 168. but thank goodness, i could resolve it about 8 months ago.

you can't change the language of your pocket PC , I mean to say if you change some options or settings in your pocket PC. to resolve this problem you have to flash the Rom of your pocket PC with an other one witch contains the language you want. for example Rom with English language.

so, first you have to download the Rom and software witch it will help you to flash your actual Rom.

sorry for my english

Mitac Mio 168 sound - adapter 2.5 to 3.5 mm jack

I believe there is something wrong, its a normal stereo socket.
I use differend 3.5 to 2.5 adapter (standard, from the shelf)without any problem to connect an FM Stereo-Transmitter.
The best solution to connect your car radio, its wireless.
