If you put the Toshiba Pocket PC e740 in your USB Cradle you may receive a "Communication Error 608". This is not a serious error, it is just a false setting in the ActiveSync Program. Please follow these steps below to correct this problem: "Tap" on start and choose the ActiveSync program Then "tap" on "Tools" and choose "Options" in the ActiveSync Program Check under "Enable synchronization when cradled using" to see if the setting is on "USB" If it is set on "Bluetooth", please change it to "USB". Now you can close the application window Important: Please remove the Pocket PC from the cradle and then return it to the cradle. This activates the new setting Important to note: This above described issue occurs if you "tap" accidently on the Bluetooth Icon in the Program Group or activate Bluetooth of any other reason, the ActiveSync Option will be set to "Bluetooth" instead of "USB". This setting will cause the "error 608" if you put in the Pocket PC e740 in the Cradle and start to synchronize over USB.

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.

Error 608

You must reinstall the software from your device. switch it off from the power button and then back on with the joystick pressed down.You will have a blue screen. Put inside one sd-card formatted in fat16 file system with the rom named as winceimg.bin ( you will find it on google).Choose winceimg by sd/mmc card by pressing joystick center. Wait untill on the display will write "restart your device". This will solve your problems

Try this, I read it on a forum.
Disconnect the device from the PC.
Open Activesync on the device.
Open the "Menu".
Click "Options"
Uncheck "E-mail" from Data you want to Sync.
Click "Done"
and re-sync devise to PC.

Once I did that, my contacts and all my appointments sync'd.
Hope that helps...
It seems tons of people have had this annoying issue.

When I connect my iPAQ to my PC, it will not recognize the device

It shouldn?t take more than 10 to 15 seconds for Active Sync to detect the iPAQ once it is inserted in the cradle and it turns on. First off you need to update to the latest version of Active Sync which is 4.5. Lots of synchronization issues have been fixed since 3.7 so here is the link to the download: A couple of times over the past few years I?ve gotten a non recognition error as well. Each time I?ve been able to get away with removing and installing the latest version and my problem has been solved.

Problems with installing Active Sync on Windows xp.

Do you use companion CD for Active sync installation? Can you please tell me which driver is necessary to have? Is there any error message and what is content of this message? It can also be that Active Sync is already installed! Please check at Add and remove Software in Control panel! Otherwise go to and download a current version of active sync
