HP Pocket 2003. Need to restore information but not recognising profile. Where do I find the files on PC to copy mobile devise. Using XP student edition

Posted by on

  • griffyn Mar 29, 2008

    You have missed the point. The device is syncronising with the PC. To restore the files from the PC to the device I have stated guest/restore/profile/pocket_pc. The software states the profile is invalid/not recogised and therefore will not restore. How do I identify the files on the PC that I need to restore onto the device. Where are the files stored? Once identified I will copy them onto the device

This document lists synchronization issues when using ActiveSync. ActiveSync is compatible with Windows XP or earlier Windows operating systems. If you are running Windows Vista on your computer, download Windows Mobile Device Center to synchronize your computer with the iPAQ. Click here for more information . Symptoms Following is a list of symptoms that may indicate synchronization issues are occurring:

  • No ActiveSync chimes sound (or a gray icon displays), and there is no activity in the ActiveSync window on your personal computer.
  • ActiveSync chimes sound, and the ActiveSync icon on your personal computer changes to a swirling green icon. The “retrieving settings�? message appears on your personal computer, but the ActiveSync connection drops prior to establishing the partnership.
  • ActiveSync is searching for a connection but none occurs. (The green icon on your personal computer continues to spin.)
  • Synchronization has been established between your HP iPAQ and personal computer but connection is dropped. (The green icon on your personal computer stops spinning and grays out.)
  • Firewall or other network protection software message box is displayed for ActiveSync to access the network or Internet.
Solutions Following is a list of troubleshooting tips if you experience difficulty while synchronizing your HP iPAQ and personal computer. Try the following solutions to troubleshoot any synchronization issues:
  • Confirm that you are running ActiveSync on your personal computer with a supported operating system (OS).
  • If you are running ActiveSync 4.0 or later and personal firewall software on your personal computer, please add ActiveSync to the firewall program’s exception list. (Firewall software, such as Sygate Personal Firewall, TrendMicro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005, Norton Personal Firewall, McAfee Personal Firewall, or Zone Alarm Security Suite may block synchronization.) Refer to the documentation that came with your firewall program to determine how to add ActiveSync 4.0 or later to the program’s exception list. To further troubleshoot a firewall application and enable ActiveSync 4.0 or later, visit: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/help/activesync/default.mspx .
  • During the ActiveSync installation, if you inadvertently left the Microsoft Exchange Server option box checked and are not planning to connect to an Exchange server, follow these steps:
    • Connect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer. Be sure an ActiveSync connection is established.
    • On your personal computer, click Start > All Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync.
    • Click Tools > Options > Sync Options tab.
    • Uncheck the boxes for the sync items listed under the Server group.
    • Place a checkmark in the boxes under the Desktop group for those items you want to synchronize.
  • Disconnect your HP iPAQ from your personal computer and wait for the ActiveSync message confirming that your device is no longer connected. Reconnect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer. Wait for about two minutes to see if your HP iPAQ connects to your personal computer.
  • On your personal computer, in ActiveSync, select File > Connection Settings. Confirm that USB is selected as a potential connection method.
  • Connect your HP iPAQ to a different USB port on your personal computer.
    • Check your USB synchronization cradle or cable.
    • Consider using another synchronization cradle or cable if one is available to you.
  • Try synchronizing via an infrared or a Bluetooth connection. Refer to the printed or CD-based documentation that came with your HP iPAQ for specific instructions.
  • Restart your personal computer and perform a soft reset on your HP iPAQ. (A soft reset does not erase any of your settings, programs or data.) Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button. Your HP iPAQ restarts and displays the Today screen. Once your personal computer and HP iPAQ restart, reconnect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer.
  • Uninstall ActiveSync from your personal computer and then reinstall it. To uninstall ActiveSync from your personal computer, click Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync. Then click the Remove button > Yes.
  • After trying the above solutions without any success in solving your connection problem, perform a hard or clean reset on your HP iPAQ. (A hard or clean reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and data and restores your HP iPAQ to factory settings. For more details, refer to the printed or CD-based documentation that came with your device.) You can reinstall your applications on your HP iPAQ once the hard or clean reset is complete by using ActiveSync on your personal computer. Once your HP iPAQ is synchronized properly, go to ActiveSync on your personal computer and select Tools > Add/Remove Programs... and select any programs you want to reinstall.

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile


This article describes how to copy user data from your Windows XP profile to a new profile.
When you copy user data into a new profile, the new profile becomes a near duplicate of the old profile, and contains the same preferences, appearance, and documents as the old profile. If your old profile is corrupted in some way, you can move the files and settings from the corrupt profile to a new profile.
Note The method that is described in this article may not transfer the Outlook Express e-mail messages and address user data that are associated with the user profile where you are transferring data from. When you delete the old profile, you may delete that data if it you do not first transfer it by using other methods. For more information about transferring Outlook Express user data, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

How i can sync my Ipaq h3955 with my pc win xp


In order to sync your iPAQ with Windows XP or earlier, you will need to download and install Windows Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 from:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx.

Notes:
You can use ActiveSync 4.5 only with phones that run Windows Mobile 2003 or later versions. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 phones. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync information to any of these phones, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.

Download and install ActiveSync:
1. Click the download link on this page, and then click Continue.
2. Select whether you want to register for the Windows Mobile newsletter, and then click Continue.
3. Click Download files below, and then click Download (next to the Setup.msi file).
4. In the File Download dialog box, click Run.
5. Follow the instructions in the Installation Wizard to install ActiveSync.

Note: You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use ActiveSync to synchronize information.

Hi i am having htc touch mobile i want to know how to save all my sms in my storage card please help me


Hi,

There is no setting that i know off that can transfer the SMSes to the storage card.

However, if you are looking to save the smses on your pocketpc, you can use this software called Pocket SMS. This will create a copy of your sms on the computer. Later you can transfer the data to the storage card for safe keeping.

Its available free at the link given below
