    Dear Nitronike,

    My Ipaq 2210 works on windows mobile 2003.

    The problem does seem to be a USB issue,apart from the fact that the RX1950 seems to want to connect to a new network adapter then flicks in and out within seconds,with the ipaq screen also flickering.

    My pc is running on XP Pro service pack 2 with a P4 3gig cpu

    regards

    This is a HUGE problem with the newer versions of ActiveSync.

    Most problems are USB port related.

    What version OS is on the Ipaq 2210?

    What is the PC make / model? (there may be a USB driver for your particular model available).

    I have several HX4700's that I have to sync with various PC's due to this USB issue, which can be REAL pain.

HPiPAQrx5915 wont active sync with pc or laptop by usb or bltooth


What version of ActiveSync are you using? Open ActiveSync on the PC, then open "About ActiveSync" under the "Help" menu - it should be version 4.5. If not, download version 4.5 from Microsoft as a first attempt to fix the problem. If you are using 4.5, try uninstalling/reinstalling again but make sure you do a soft reset (push the pin on the top of the device) before you connect the Ipaq. If this doesn't work let me know and we'll try some other things.

IPAQ 1950 suddenly will not connect to PC to allow sync


Same problem, on four computers with two iPAQ 1950's. I installed ActiveSync 4.5, and all works fine now. This link will get you to AS 4.5:

This SHOULD work for all PDAs, but I have only used it for the 1950.

I have an HP iPAQ rx1950 PDA and it my new Windows Vista computer will not recognize it using the USB cable. Is there a way to set it up as a part of my wireless network? If so, what are the steps for...


With Vista, there has been a change from Activesync to Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) which does the same thing that activesync does.

You need to download and install WMDC and then you should be able to sync.

Problem synching after Daylight Savings Time


I have this problem too. The only way I can correct it, is by removing the battery, reinstalling it and letting it boot up again. Then I plug into the USB port for iPAQ and it seems to connect to ActiveSync. It's a real pain.

Please help! Cannot sync....


You need to install Activesync onto your PC. Activesync comes on the CD that came with your Ipaq , or the latest version can be downloaded from here... http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2eb5bd80-d52c-45 60-ae11-da92f2b229fa&DisplayLang=en Then from your PC (not your IPAQ), open Activesync, click on File, Get Connected and do NOT cradle the IPAQ until it tells you to. The Activesync on the IPAQ is for wireless syncs, which cannot be done until youu establish a partnership with this first wired sync. You will need a wireless network to do a wireless sync.
