NEC Mobilepro 900c will not connect w/computer

Hi, i recently got a 900 after my 780 died. i tried connecting it to my computer to transfer programs, but my computer won't recognize it. my dad's wont either. so i know it's the handheld. i downloaded the USB fix from the NEC page, but that didn't work either. any ideas? should i just go look for a serial cable instead of the usb? the problem isn't that i can't transfer files.. i can do that with a jump drive. i just need to put programs on it, including setting up for my wireless card. thanks.

Are you using the NEC Mobilepro 900c drivers? I'm sure the drivers are different. YOu can find the XP drivers here: In addition, you should make sure that you have Activesync 3.8 or older. You can find it here:

Perhaps the programs you are trying to install are designed to run on your desktop PC and use activesync to transfer to the PDA..?

right clik my computer,go to properties,click on properties,click on hardware devices you will see the list of all the hardware components installed on your computer,check to see if your network adapter is installed,if not installed you will see a yellow balloon attached to the adapter icon,then try and install the device.if the device is installedbut you can't browse,i think that has to do with you internet configuration.try using the a unique computer name and the correct workgroup name,good luck.
