USB connectivity for Jornada 520

I have HP Jornada 520 and I used to connect to desktop using serial cable. I bought a USB sync cable which was for Jornada 525/548 and tried to connect to my desktop but the PDA isn't detected through Active Sync software on USB port. I have the latest version of Active Sync from Microsoft. The USB cable is from iConcepts company by the name "HOT SYNC CABLE". I am wondering if it is possible to connect Jornada 520 through USB connection or the cable I have is not compatible. Usually 525 series accessories are compatible with 520 model. Please tell me what I could be doing wrong or is there way to make it work.

This may be a simple case of removing all the entire active sync directory. If you used to connect via serial+com it wont be detected on usb. Remove active sync from your pc via the add remove program feture, then reboot and re install. Then run the make a connection again from active sync. Hope this helps

If you do a new, clean install of XP in 2018, one would be missing hundreds of updates from Microsoft that would be very hard if not impossible to get. Some of those updates might apply to software that you want to use in conjunction with Windows XP. And if it is an older PC, you might not be able to find driver support for the particular make/model, and XP might not have the drivers you need. How many times have you heard someone say, "I just reinstalled XP, but now I am missing drivers?"

This could be part of your trouble, because even if your XP updated all the way up to April 2014, you could still be missing HP updates provided by HP/Microsoft through Windows Update.

Since Microsoft has not supported XP since April 2014, I would recommend not using it anymore in 2018.

I cant figure out how to connect my jornada to my pc.. can you help?


Hi,

Are you connecting from dock to USB on computer, or serial to USB via a USB-serial adapter? UBS-serial adapters are notorious for not recognizing attached serial hardware. What kind of errors are the Jornada and the computer throwing? Can you give any specific error numbers?

If you are connecting using the serial cable to a serial port on your computer you need to make sure that the Jornada is trying to connect to the correct COM port (and that the computer is allowing connections through the correct COM port). Do this by:
1. Open Device Manager (R-Click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager)
2. Expand the "Ports (COM)" plus sign
3. Beside each COM port's name it will say (COM#) - the # tells you which port the COM is
4. Go into ActiveSync and open Connection Settings (in the File menu in ActiveSync 4.5 - the latest)
5. Make sure all the check boxes are checked and that the correct number COM port is selected in the drop down menu under "Allow connections to one of the following:"
6. Connect your Jornada via the serial cable, make sure the Jornada is on and connected to power cable (I have had more success with the power on - may or may not affect your problem)
7. Click the "Connect..." button in ActiveSync. The Jornada should be detected.

If your computer has an infrared port you could try that, I have had a lot of success with infrared connections with my Jornada. Also, try installing ActiveSync on another computer that has a serial port and try connecting the Jornada to that computer. It may be a problem with your computer.

An older version of ActiveSync should not make a difference. The facilities are the same, just slightly rearranged.



Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

This error is a communication problem between your computer and the Jornada. Try these solutions:

Has anything changed that caused the problem, eg, installing new hardware, using a different cable to sync the Jornada?

All you have to do: Select Device Manager, select "Universal Serial Bus controlled". Re-install the USB driver from Active-Sync CD. That's it.

Jornada 565 no longer being seen by ActiveSync?


Occasionally under XP Pro, my 564 won't be recognized when I put it on the cradle to sync. I just take it off the cradle and try again. My understanding is the XP loads an HP driver when the Jornada is detected as connected by USB, if that driver doesn't load succesfully, then XP won't recognize the Jornada.

You can buy a USB cable for your Jornada. HP and thrid party vendors sell them. I bought one that has a cigarette lighter adapter to charge the Jornada also.
