Had the same problem. Just fixed it as suggested by some of you. Had to delete every file on my F480 and then re-sync everything. Very annoying! But thanks for your hints!

HI, I too have the same issue and Samsung Tech support in the UK were happy to blame everyone - me, Vodafone, Microsoft, Ossama bin Laden - but not, under any circumstances take any interest or responsibilty at all. If any Samsumg managment ever see this, TAKE NOTE - this is how you loose customers!

So, rant over, the 'fix' is to delete all the appointments, addresses etc from the phone by hand (delete all, enter pin ifyou have set one) and then rsync from the PC.

I think the problem is caused by ML Sync getting upset at 'odd' or corrupt data from Outlook, which I found when syncing Outlook with a remote ML Sync server for another purpose.

More software implmentation if you ask me..

Also, one last bit of advice to amsumg, look at the excellent Phone Sync software Nokia suppl and DO BETTER THAN IT! The current Samsumg offering sucks. It is poorly designed, requires far too much user intervention and is badly integrated. The Nokia package just works. Walk into the office, your phone connects via Bluetootth, sysncs, downloads and deletes photos and signs off, with no user intervention at all.

Hope that helps!

I got the same error ...
i have fixed it by deleting all meetings other than "Schedule" in the phone's calendar ...
if you have meetings in your phones calendar which are saved as "private or anniversary, ...", the sync will fail...

Ipaq h2210 won't sync with desktop

Usually the simplest solution with Microsoft software such as active-sync is to uninstall it and install it again from scratch. When you reinstall it will ask you what programs you want to sync with, your old PIM software has been lowered in priority in favour of Outlook because MS think everyone should want to use it, so it's often easier to start using Outlook as your main PIM.

Moving contacts from outlook to a mobile phone

1. Go to Outlook and save your 957 contacts in an outlook file. 2. Delete the 507 contacts you don't want to synchronize to your phone and save your outlook under a different file name (e.g. Addr450). 3. Connect the phone to the PC. 4. Open Nokia PC Sync. 5. In the Nokia PC Sync dialog, click Synchronise Now. The Create Settings wizard opens. 6. On the first page of the wizard, select the PIM application you want to synchronise the phone with from the drop-down list. You can choose Outlook Express, Outlook 2000, outlook 2002 or Outlook 2003 as your PIM. Follow the instructions on screen to finish the wizard process. HTH.
