Question about HP Jornada 568 Pocket PC

1 Answer

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.

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.

This is a tough one.

My first thought is that if you reformat your laptop and it crashes, sounds like a hardware (most common: memory or hard drive) problem.

But, you've tested / replaced the memory and the hard drive. Be certain that you have the correct memory for this laptop. Also, run hardware diagnostics.

When you reformat, don't add anything. Just the operating system. Boot it and test for awhile to see if the operating system is stable. Then, add software one at a time and test each time. It may be a long process, but it's possible that your software may be infecting your system.

Hope this helps.

Can't sync to the mp3

Okay, 57dlt, here's what to do:
Make sure all of your songs, images and other media are on your PC. If not, you will lose them, and will have to obtain them again.
Go to settings->format, them press play, and leave your mp3 player alone for a few minutes. when it's done, the mp3 player will be wiped clean of everything. Once it's been wiped, go get the newest windows media player, then put all of the songs and images you want into the synch list, and let it synch until finished.
you will have all of the files you want on it, with no extra space being used up.

Guest: connect your mp3 player to the pc, then open it in my computer. go to the photos folder, and delete whichever ones you plan on getting rid of.

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.
