Phone memory & Active sync problems

1. Not sure why its not syncing. You may try uninstalling active sync from your computer and reinstalling.
2. Get another memory card and put the files on there, or get a card reader and transfer them to your computer.
Uninstall any unnecessary programs from the phone to free up space.

Can "Notes" in my computer's Outlook be synced?

When in active sync you can select whether you want your notes to be sync. Select options and change the initial sync to the Windows PC and sync from there.

When I connect my iPAQ to my PC, it will not recognize the device

It shouldn?t take more than 10 to 15 seconds for Active Sync to detect the iPAQ once it is inserted in the cradle and it turns on. First off you need to update to the latest version of Active Sync which is 4.5. Lots of synchronization issues have been fixed since 3.7 so here is the link to the download: A couple of times over the past few years I?ve gotten a non recognition error as well. Each time I?ve been able to get away with removing and installing the latest version and my problem has been solved.
