Re: acer n300 wont sync
you also have a connection manager on the PDA Itself ( Active sync ) Try syncing from the PDA as Well As The Computer Active Sync Program.
Also make sure if you have a firewall, you allow the PDA into it as a trusted Device.

you might need to syncronise the webcam with the bluetooth device http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/microsoft-activesync/3000-2094_4-10031823.html Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 is the latest sync software release for Windows Mobile-based devices.

All versions of activesync will handle this device providing it is powered by Microsoft Widows Mobile, Microsoft Windows CE, or a similar Microsoft Windows Powered OS. I am unaware of what your specific device utilizes; however I do know that all versions of ActiveSync will provide support to devices listed above.
The CD is most likely a support plug-in or a remote install for desktop to device software.
Please consult Dell's support and Drivers site for any additional information or pieces of software you may require. You should however, providing your desktop/laptop computer is using > Windows XP, be able to utilize limited access abilitys of your device (such as transfer of files) given Windows Mobile device recognition.
Please let us know if you require further information.
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.
Install the latest Duo software load, from: http://www.pantechusa.com/html/images/software/download.htm
If you still have ActiveSync problems, try:
1) install activesync software
2) On the phone, go to Settings > Connections > Modem Link > then set the modem link status to INACTIVE.
3) On the phone, go to Settings > Connections > USB to PC > then select Enable advanced network functionality.
4) plug the phone in via USB to PC... the sync software will recognize the phone automatically when connected, and windows will not ask for driver install.
To have your devices used as a modem for a laptop? If so, it should already be on the devices. It's called Internet Sharing under StartPrograms. If it's not there, goto your file explorer and goto My DeviceWindows and you should also be able to find it there.
Are you talking about the syncing software? If so, you can get it from Microsoft's website. If you are using Windows XP, you need to download ActiveSync 4.5. If Windows Vista, you need Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1.
You can download ActiveSync 4.5 here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/activesync/activesync45.mspx
Or Windows Mobile Device Center here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/devicecenter.mspx
In case you still have not been able to solve your problems I can help you!
1. Just connect the PDA and your Vista laptop the way you used to with WinXP (cradle, USB). The PDA will be detected as "Windows Mobile Device" and you should be automatically asked by Vista for sync configuration. You will have to get used to the "Windows Mobile Device" interface.
This could be due to a few issues, try these soloutions in order below:
1) If you have a jacket connected to the ipaq it could be preventing the ipaq from locating correctly on the connector. Remove jacket and try insering again.
2) Check that active sync is set up to detect the device on the usb port. The cradle for the ipaq may have a serial and usb connector. Ensure that just the usb connector is attached to your laptop. Try connecting again.
3) You may need to uninstall the USB cradle if it was connected before installing active sync. Try the following steps if this was the case:
a) unplug the USB cradle
b) uninstall active sync
c)Click start then click control pannel then click system. Then click on the hardware tab.
Look for the device under USB, right click on the device and then select uninstall.
d) restart the laptop
e) Install active sync
f) ONLY after active sync has installed you can now plug the cradle back into the usb socket.
g) Now connect the ipaq, it should now detect it.
It should if you have USB on the W95 machine. ActiveSync is compatable with W95. It worked for me with Outlook 98 on a Win95 laptop synching to a PC2000 PDA (Jornada), however I was using a serial cable.
