Problem serial connection e400 using cradle

Using a Win NT machine I need a serial connection to synchronise the pda with outlook. So I bought the cradle with usb and serial (same as for e800)connectors. However I can NOT get any serial connection with the NT or other XP computers. It seems to me that the e400 can not recognise the serial protocol. Even after a hard reset the connection can not be made. So 2 questions: 1) Does anyone have had a serial connection (on mobile2003)? 2) Can anyone give tips how to create connection?

Re: Problem serial connection e400 using cradle

I am not 100% sure if I am correct in this, but I am quite sure that the e400 does not support a serial connection. Only the e800 does.

SYNC LGKU990 to PC


This is what sorted it out for me.

When you go through the connection wizard on the LG PC Suite take note of the port number that it is using.
Then go to device manager(for win xp go to start/control panel/system, click on the Hardware tab then device manger) on your pc. Expand Ports(COM & LPT) and right click on LGE Mobile USB Serial Port and select properties. Take note of what port is indicated in brackets. Go to the Port Settings tab and select advanced. Change the com port number to what LG PC suite was using. Select OK, OK and try connecting again with the Wizard and see if you can transfer data etc
Let me know if that helped.

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.

Migrating software and data to new computer


Assume that your Visor is your data respository. So you should make sure that you have an up-to-date synchronization from the NT PC. Now get the XP compatible software for your Visor from the palmOne website and install it on the XP box. I assume that you will be synching via USB this time - this is the default setup when you install the software. Hopefully you still have the USB cradle that came with the Visor. You can still use serial sync with XP but you should try to take advantage of the speed of USB on the new PC. Download for XP & Visors: http://www.palmone.com/us/support/downloads/visor/win_desktop_401.html Once the software is installed, sync with the new computer and all your data should be copied from the Visor to your PC in the first synchronization. By the way, Outlook shouild be installed on the new computer before you install the Visor software; otherwise the installer will not offfer to install the PocketMirror conduits.

PDA e310, e330 or e740 together with Windows NT 4.0


The Toshiba Pocket PC's e310, e330 and e740 are designed to work together with Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Millennium, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Microsoft Windows NT4.0 is an older operating system, which does not work together with the Toshiba Pocket PC's e310,e330 and e740. Technical background: The Toshiba Pocket PC's have a USB and a Infrared interface to communicate with a Computer. Unfortunately, Microsoft Windows NT4.0 does not support USB nor Infrared. Windows NT supports a serial connection, but the serial interface is not available for the Pocket PC's e310,e330 and e740. Note: There is the possibility to synchronize a PDA over Network or Modem but the ActiveSync Software, which is responsible for the synchronization, will need a "first sync" to establish a "partnership" with the PDA. This "first sync" can only be done via USB.

Microsoft Outlook data won't synch


In ActiveSybch there is an option of setting the priority of either the PC, the PDA or leaving the items unresolved. You can either change this of follow another route. With the device off the cradle delete the partnership WITHOUT deleting the partnership folder. Place the device on the cradle & let AS find the device & setup the partnership. Once setup remove the device & go to options & set all the required options. Replace the device & it should synchronise. If you still have problems please contact me directly through email.
