Question about HP iPAQ H3955 Pocket PC

1 Answer

PC/PDA "connected" yet PC won't read PDA

I purchased a used Ipaq 3955 that had a dead battery. I installed Active Sync on my PC and when the PDA was in it's cradle, I was able to "explore" and view all the files stored on the PDA. I then decided to download a few new games to the PDA and after I turned off the PDA and removed it from the cradle, I realized that all the files I had stored had been deleted due to lack of a battery. So I purchased a new battery and changed it. Now the new battery is charged and when the PDA is connected to the PC via the cradle, Active Sync on both the PDA and the PC state that the two are "connected" but the error message reads that the PC cannot verify the version of Active Sync on the PDA. When I click on 'explore' within Active Sync, the folder shows NO files. The PC is unable to read the PDA now, eventhough the Active Sync program says they are connected. I made sure there was nothing being blocked by a firewall and I also checked to make sure that both the PC and the PDA were set up to connect via the USB ports. I have tried multiple different USB ports. Still nothing happens. Help??

but the HP end and the Microsoft end have to have compatible and working drivers. to work.

http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=3544497

your only hope is talking to Microsoft now,
see if they support it, my guess w10 does not
how far back , support software drivers ended, ask MS.
looks like (hard to track) w7 is last OS supported.

i see scalpers selling drivers now, for this old product.
good luck with them,,,

try asking on a real HP forum
other asked this vast times, and the answers are dead correct.

excerpted
Unfortunately, WMDC is not compatible with Windows 8 and you will not be able to sync your Outlook related data to your iPAQ. There is no expectation that Microsoft has any plans to update WMDC to make it compatible.
You may be able to use a third party paid application to sync the data, like Companion Link or Akruto Sync.

Does the ipaq 2215 work with Outlook 2002?


Active Sync will work with many version of outlook. Your PDA interfaces with Active Sync. Certain versions of Windows Mobile software and/or PDA's require higher versions of active sync to sync correctly.

IPAQ 3955 Won't Sync?


Try uninstalling, rebooting and reinstalling ActiveSync on the host. If you haven't yet upgraded to 3.6, maybe upgrading will clear up the problem.

Reinstallation of app onto iPAQ upon hard reset


In activesync under Tools/Add REmove programs you can check the box and click "ok" that will install the program. For the most part it's best to do it one program at a time. Obviously your PDA should be cradled or this. Most programs will re-install fine this way. Some programs though do require you to re-install from the installtion program directly since active sync doesn't pick up some important parts of the program. The two programs I have that require the special install are: CLC Journal since it has an outlook component and sets up a sync for the Outlook Journal. The Stowaway Keyboard driver since it had to ask me what language (the new driver doesn't do this...) The other 30 odd programs I have install straight from active sync.
