Question about NEC MobilePro 790 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Syncing my MobilePro 790 with my computer

Our computer runs Windows Vista Home Premium. It does not use Activesync, it uses Windows Mobile Device Center. After I installed a cable that is serial on one end and USB on the other end and I try to connect my device, I get aCommunications Error. Cannot start communications with desktop computer. Remote networking could not start due to a critical error (Error 678). Is this device compatible with Windows Vista? How do you connect with the computer using Windows Mobile Device Center. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    It is a Nec MobilePro 790 Handheld/pc running Microsoft Handheld pc 2000. Our computer is a Gateway personal computer (GT5428) running Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium. It is only about 2 months old. This cable is from Radio Shack. It is a 6 ft. USB to Serial Cable. Connects a serial(D89) equipped peripheral to a USB port. On the package, it states for serial devices which require a RS-232 connection that you want to connect to a USB port. Requirements: Available USB port, Windows 98 SE or later. The only number on the package is 26-183. I was also wondering for the model of Nec Mobile Pro that I have what would be the largest CF card it could take. I hope that I have provided the information that you need. Thank You Jan

Hi i need imate jasjam PC suit, and speaker not working


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Your phone was manufactured by HTC and uses the Windows Mobile Operating Platform. As such there are two programs you can download but which one you need will depend on your computer's operating system.

Download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 if you run Windows Vista or Windows 7 on your computer and you want to sync content between your mobile phone and your computer. Windows Mobile Device Center is only compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Download here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931937

Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 is the latest sync software release for Windows Mobile-powered devices. ActiveSync provides a great synchronization experience with Windows®-powered PCs and Microsoft Outlook right out of the box. Note: Microsoft ActiveSync works only with Windows XP SP2 or earlier.

How do I transfer files or applications from pc to the htc snap?


You need to install on your computer ActiveSync/Windows Mobile Device Center. To install this, insert the "Getting Started" CD into your computer and follow the setup steps. If you don't have the CD anymore, you can download the ActiveSync from this link.

Once ActiveSync/Windows Mobile Device Center is installed you connect the HTC Snap to your PC using the USB cable supplied with your HTC Snap, then you will be presented a configuration Wizard that will take you through the set up process.

You can connect the device to your computer using USB either as an External Drive or through Microsoft ActiveSync. If using Windows Vista, you will use Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) rather than ActiveSync. Simply plug the device in and choose an option on the screen of the device.

If you will use it as an External Device, you can copy data on it as you would copy on a USB flash drive, with copy and paste.

Another option is to use the bluetooth to transfer files, if you have a notebook which has bluetooth capabilities or you have a dongle.
