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...

Where can i get the pc suit of this cellphone??

It's a Windows Mobile 6 Standard phone, and, as such, it requires either ActiveSync (for Windows XP) or Windows Mobile Device Center (for Vista and 7) installed on your PC, in order to get synchronized. Go to this page and install the version which better suits your machine. They are connection management applications only. So, if you plan to sync PIM data, such as calendar, contacts, e-mail, you must have Outlook installed. If you want to sync media files, such as music, playlists, video, Windows Media Player should be on your PC too.
By the way, if your phone's user manual happens to be missing, feel free to download it from this location.
Please, let me know if I can help you any further.

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.

I had the same issue.  I finally upgraded to the current version of Outlook.  That seemed to solve the issue for me.  Syncing a palm is not easy.  I will never buy a Palm again.

This is what sorted it out for me.

When you go through the connection wizard on the LG PC Suite take note of the port number that it is using.
Then go to device manager(for win xp go to start/control panel/system, click on the Hardware tab then device manger) on your pc. Expand Ports(COM & LPT) and right click on LGE Mobile USB Serial Port and select properties. Take note of what port is indicated in brackets. Go to the Port Settings tab and select advanced. Change the com port number to what LG PC suite was using. Select OK, OK and try connecting again with the Wizard and see if you can transfer data etc
Let me know if that helped.

Converting plam address book to my Htc pocket pc

method1: The easiest way to do this is to sync your Palm Desktop data with the PIM on your Yahoo account. It's free so if you don't have a Yahoo account sign up and get one just for the transfer. Once your DateBook data is on Yahoo there is a simple to use option to sync Yahoo to Outlook. once all your stuff is in Outlook it will ActiveSync to the PPC

method 2:  install the Outlook and then the Palm sync conduits and sync their datebook, notes, tasks and contacts to Outlook. install Activesync and sync the pocketpc and they get their data. you can also use pocket mirror software for this.
method3: Install ExtendConnect from Extended Systems. Then sync first with the Palm. Then sync with the Pocket PC.

Palm data and ActiveSync

You won't be able to do that. Lotus Organizer as well as Lotus Notes and OutHook are PIM some plus e-mail, just like Palm Desktop is a PIM. So you can have the Treo sync with Lotus Organizer AND have the Axim sync with it also it is because there are conduits buit for them. There is a middleware that allows both to talk to one. Now if you can find a piece of software out there that will sync a PocketPC with Palm Desktop, I'm sure a lot of Palm converts would love to know that.

Cannot hoysync with outlook 2003

After installing, reinstalling, deleting, hard resets, hitting head against wall... I tried installing the Pocket Mirror conduit as a last ditch effort. An error message popped up saying it could not find the mapi32.dll file. I looked at another PC, located that file in the windows32 directory, copied it to my PC, and I was able to hotsync with Outlook. To test this, I uninstalled the Pocket Mirror and Palm desktop SW, then deleted the mapi32.dll. Installed the Palm 4.1.4 sw, outlook 101 update, plus the conduit update, had same error messages. Added the mapi32.dll to the windows32 directory - was able to successfully sync with Outlook!

Unresolved Items when synching

Try the following.... Open Active sync on your PC. Double Click on Calendar. Change the settings such that it syncs only 0 past and 0 future appointments. SYNC (this will clear all calendar items on the IPAQ) Now go back in to those Calendar settings, and set it back to the default which is 2 past weeks and All Future appointments. SYNC (this will now reload all appointments into your Ipaq)
