Question about HP Jornada 568 Pocket PC

Can't synch, only connects as guest

Everything was okay until my laptop (WinME) crashed and went out for repairs and came home reformatted. I've reloaded ActiveSynch 3.5 for P/PC 2002 and during the setup opted to synch with two pc's. That may be the problem but now I can't connect and synch. It reads a connection but is unable to synch. At the "connection tab" on the jornada it tells me I need to reset the configuration or something like that. The Help files are no help. I want to go back to the original settings but I can't not even deleting ActiveSynch and reinstalling. I can't transfer files or load anything into the jornada. Any thoughts? Please? Thank you.

Re: Can't synch, only connects as guest

I have had this happen to me at work. You need to backup your Jornada on the computer that works to sync (VERY IMPORTANT) and then hard reset the Jornada (which wipes it clean). Make sure that you put the name back into the Jornada identification (it will be wiped out by the hard reset). Then try to synch on the computer that can't synch except as Guest now. It should sync fine. Then you will need to sync on the computer that works to sync to restore the backup file. Then you will be back to normal. It is a pain. I don't know why it happens but I know this solution worked for me. Let us know if it works for you.

Address Book Not Synching


If addressbook is presently syncing to Contacts in Outlook, then you will need to reinstall the desktop to alter the conduits. The reinstall should overlay the present version. Just select to alter conduits when requested.

Help with Avantgo


You don't really need for it to. You can go to setting on your Axim, then to connections, and use the avant go connection, to connect, and synch with avant go that way. You can synch to avant go that way, with any internet connection. If it's connected to active synch as a guest then you can't synch with active synch also.

Hotsync with two computers


I just posted a similar kind of problem. With my old M105, this worked fine - Outlook on my work computer, Palm Desktop on my home computer. When I upgraded to Zire 31, I saw that message about 2 computers once during the past week, but never again. I was thinking about using the Install CD again on my work computer to see if there is an option for synching between 2 computers. (synching to 2 different computers seems to be the most reliable backup for one bad synch)

Problem syncing with two computers


The HotSync Manager was not designed to work this way. While it may seem like a good idea to do what you are doing, I would never consider doing it. HotSync was designed to be a one-to-one relationship between a set of data on your PC and a set on your handheld. You are giving contrary messages to each PC by using it this way. If you synch to an exchange server (via your Outlook account) you can get away with doing this because PocketMirror or the palmOne Outlook conduits and other conduits have settings you can make to notify HotSync that you are 'two-timing' :-). However if you synch to Outlook in work and then to Palm Desktop at home (I suspect this is your scenario), I disrecommend this. I recommend setting the Home PC to be a slave. That is, I set the conduits at home to be handheld overwrites desktop for the four personal information conduits - Calendar, Contacts, To Dos and Memos. Then when I am at home if I want to change some data, I add it to the handheld not on the PC. That way you have a kosher set of data that is up to date on the handheld and on your work PC. When you synch to the home PC, this data is cloned to the home PC from the handheld. You can continue as you are but you will always have some uncertainty on your data integrity. Losing precious contacts or not showing up for a key appointment is a bad deal.

E-125 Getting attachments for emails


What can & cannot be downloaded will be determined by your setup in ActiveSynch on the desktop. When connected right click on the Inbox on ActiveSynch main screen & select settings. Check mark the "Include File Attachments". If you are downloading the jpg files uncheck the "Limit Attachment size to" so complete attachments will be downloaded. On the PDA start the inbox, tap on Tools - Options - Storage. You should get the option of saving the attachments on storage card if one is available to save on main memory usage. But this might not be an option if you use a CF wireless ethernet card for connecting & Synching. If it does show up you will have to uncheck this option to save the attachments in main memory. Hope this helps.
