Delete all your PC registers (e.g. windows PC) inside your dopod. From Dopod Activesync software, you can click menu/options and delete all as advised earlier..
Reset your unit and try connecting up your unit to your PC.
Good luck!...

Software you need to install software
let it install before connecting phone to comp
then after finish the install then connect the phone to usb cable
you might if this didnt work the first time have to uninstall all the software and try a fresh copy of the software in comp to sync everything with desktop manager

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50 and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to a computer using a sync cable.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync connection is successful.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

.msi in HTC


Hi. You can download Microsoft ActiveSync through this adress: (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/ActiveSync-download.mspx) After you install this software, just plug your PDA into your computer with the USB cable, and run the .msi. After the installation completes within your computer, ActiveSync should run and install the software to your device also. Hope this helps.

Acer n300 wont sync


Hi,
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.
Mike @ Compurepair.
1 more thing, try on/off the PDA whilst in sync mode.
Hope This Helps.

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


try syncing through bluetooth, there could be a problem with the cradle. i have had an issue very similar to yours and had to do a soft reset on my pda. then set up your device to use a blue tooth connection( you may need to buy a bluetooth dongle for your pc).

Sync problem


I assume you use activesync. Check in the options that it is set to synchronise this data. if you have already done this try reinstalling activesync or installing the newest version, 4.0.
