How can i connect my htc s20 with my pc


You will need active sync
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx

To install and set up ActiveSync on the computer
1. Install ActiveSync on your PC, as described on the Windows Mobile®
Getting Started Disc.
2. After Setup completes, the Synchronization Setup Wizard
automatically starts when you connect your phone to the PC. The
wizard will guide you to create a synchronization
3.Select the information types to synchronize between your phone and
computer.
If you will synchronize your phone with both your computer and
Exchange Server, do the following:
• For the Contacts, Calendar, E-mail, and Tasks items, choose whether
to synchronize them with the computer or with the Exchange
Server. These items cannot be synchronized to both.
• Select the check boxes of the other information types if you want
to synchronize them with your computer.
4.Click Next.
5. Click Finish.
When you finish the wizard, Active Sync synchronizes your phone
automatically. Once synchronization completes, you can disconnect your
phone from your PC.

After that if you setup the program correctly every time you will connect your phone with computer will be automatic synchronized

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.

Sync via bluetooth


Does your USB adapter provide serial port connections ? I had the same issue with an USB adapter with a dedicated-to-phone software. I changed to MSI bluetooth adapter and then made a serial port available to COM5, then connect activesync to COM5. (make sure on the ipaq you create a shortcut "activesync connection" and pair with the bluetooth adapter.

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.

"Communications Error 608"


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.
