IPAQ 4150 - Sync Problems

Hi - Can anyone tell me why my IPAQ 4150 often doesn't sync with my desktop ? I use the same partnership as always, same computer, same USB connection, same cradle etc.. But as often as not, in the ActiveSync window it just says: "Connecting...." and nothing actually happens. The problem is only ever resolved by repeatedly disconnecting the Ipaq from the cradle and/or USB lead from the desktop and waiting. But this is getting a little tedious, for something that should be so straightforward. Is this just "built in" unreliability that I have to get used to, or is there a solution ?

Re: IPAQ 4150 - Sync Problems

It might be a hardware problem - if you get it both with the cradle and a sync cable, then it might be the connector at bottom of Ipaq. But I don't know for sure. If it's intermittent like this then it doesn't seem like a software problem.

Ipaq 4700 active sync problems


i can try to help you , first are you using xp or vista ? and which version of active sync ? i found that after upgrading to active sync v4.5 my ipaq 4700 refused to sync , i have xp home , so by trial and error i learned several things , i tryed my usb cable in every usb slot i had , only to find some usb ports are more friendly to certain devices , for a lack of better terms , i deleted all partnerships in active sync , found that i needed to make sure active sync is not running on ipaq , go to settings / memory / running programs on the ipaq , stop all running programs , turn the ipaq off , then on the pc made sure firewall not locked , plug usb cable into pc , i leave mine in a port permanently , plug into the ipaq , it automatically turns the ipaq on , then i see 2 icons in pc system subtray start blinking , at that point i know sync is going to work , then active sync icon starts turning , lit up in green , and asks do you want to create a partnership , yes , follow prompts , and thats what has been working for me , now if i was to put the usb cable into a different port , no doubt it would give me grief , and the same thing with my phone and active sync , make sure active sync is not running on the device , sometimes i have to reset the unit , ipaq or phone , make sure unit is turned off them make the connection , give it a try .

HP iPAQ 4150 battles Vista -- HELP


The Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center requires that the first sync be made via the USB sync cable. After the h4150 is plugged into the Vista machine, the WMDC opens and prompts you through setting up a partnership. Then you can set the h4150 to sync via Bluetooth.

ActiveSync works fine with Vista. Ignore that other guys post.

IPAQ H5555 connection problems


Hi, 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.

Device Name not unique. This device name is already in use.


the name of the device is only what you want to call it, eg instead of ipaq call it tropflor, it's only a name in which the device is recognised by other devices and for sync purposes, but as in a pc, always back up your contacts and files, as pocket pcs are more likely to crash.

Replaced " Jornada" to " iPAQ" - How to keep/recovery all datas


So if you sync your old one to OUTLOOK on your PC, I would simply install the new Activesync and create a new partnership for your Ipaq and the data should be transferred.

You need to sync the old one with your PC, then simply set up a new partnership with your new Ipaq and sync it with that same PC.

Please help! Cannot sync....


You need to install Activesync onto your PC. Activesync comes on the CD that came with your Ipaq , or the latest version can be downloaded from here... http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2eb5bd80-d52c-45 60-ae11-da92f2b229fa&DisplayLang=en Then from your PC (not your IPAQ), open Activesync, click on File, Get Connected and do NOT cradle the IPAQ until it tells you to. The Activesync on the IPAQ is for wireless syncs, which cannot be done until youu establish a partnership with this first wired sync. You will need a wireless network to do a wireless sync.
