HP Ipaq h1940 won't sync with Vista

I have the above Ipaq that use to work fine with my MS XP operating system. Now I have Vista premium and it doesn't work very well if at all. It does recognize it sometimes but I checked the MS site and there is no sync software for vista and this model Ipaq only newer models, because of the Ipaq OS. Is there away around this so I can use my Ipaq, with out upgrading the OS. Or should I just get rid of Vista!!! My ipaq 1945 is stuck on the HP screen 1.07 and will not sync after I was told to hold the power button down and reset

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.

Do you really need to sync, or do you just need to exchange files?

If you just want to move some files from desktop to Ipaq, buy a SD memory card. Copy files to the SD card and put it in the Ipaq. Now you can load the files.

Window Vista syncronizing with iPAQ 3835 problem


In order to sync any iPAQ with Windows Vista, you will need to download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/device-center-download.mspx.

Activesync will only work for XP Operating Systems and earlier.
Notes
  • To find out whether your version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. The version is listed after System Type.
  • You can use Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 only with phones running Windows Mobile 2003 or later. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 devices. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, and if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync content to any of these devices, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
  • You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.
  • You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use Windows Mobile Device Center to sync.

I removed Active Sync from Programs is there any way to get it back. I cannot synchronise diary with computer. Barbara


I assume you're using XP if you had "Active Sync" as an option. Here is the address for downloading and installing or re-installing as the case may be - Active Sync :

Sync problem with Outlook Public calendar


Hi Brad,

By default, it won't sync the company shared calendar. This is in fact very hard to do. You will need to speak the guys in your IT department about a product to sync your calendar with the company one. If you use Exchange server, then you may wish to look towards a product such as 'SlipStick'...
