Jornada 568 Sync Problems

Two days ago, my Jornada 568 stopped syncronizing with my pavilion 9871 PC. I use Active Sync 3.5 Build 12007, and Windows XP. I didnt have any problems and two days ago, when I put the Jornada in the Cradle, I got an error message saying USB Device Not Recognized. Since then I've followed every instruction on HP and Microsoft web site, including reinstalling XP from scratch, with no luck.

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.

How to activate daylight saving mode on Jornada 568?

The PDA toy, 17 years old now, who uses something this old?

in what country, DLS varies by country and state
and the rules changed here, in 2005. (wiki it)
it's winter here, in USA< so.. you are on other half of earth. (lower)
most computers made for 42 years, , ALL use a RTC chip
same chip as in a wrist watch( close to same, very close)

this chip does all that magic even to the level of a
perpetual calendar ! wiki that.?
so the BIOS can set (all real PCs) all that and the OS too.
when you change the OS time and date it then goes to the
BIOS RTC page and changes it there so they are in sync.
they Sync, up,

I do not know where Any OS stores time, after all it be different in all 100's of OS made, and your old relic PDA , gawd knows.
your manual for Jornada
tells you on PAGE 13, when you reset the Jornada, or or run it the first time, it asks for time city and time zone.
what makes you think this toy device even does daylight saving time, (it have to do every city on earth to do that , no easy thing)
on a real computer here, we can set our clock to WWV time.
via the WWV or WWVH, radio site, here, "atomic time"
then it sets you per the daylight savings (bit set selection)
That is how it works best on a real PC. or notebook.
maybe your Toy PDA is set this way (page 101)
Using ActiveSync, you can synchronize information in Microsoft Outlook
or Microsoft Exchange on your desktop PC with information in Pocket
Outlook on your hp Jornada."
but wait MS shut all that down long ago......

I googled for you and found very little on the RTC functions of you PDA. (but it is too old now, really)
the manual only has very little on topic, (so is limited in features)

my guess is you are looking for something that DOES NOT EXIST.
seem so, no? not in the official book
HP forum zero hits.
google zero hits.
last Jornada sold on ebay for $5 ,gets you 7 of them,
71cents (USD) each, less than 1 PEACH, here
they are not considered here, just trash.

Sync problem w/outlook contact

I use my 548 to keep my work and home versions of Outlook syncronised. I have about 70 contacts stored. Three suggestions.. 1) Do you have enough free memory? Emails can take up megabytes, and for that reason I choose not to sync emails. 2) Are all of your contacts in the same Contacts folder? I have two contacts folders on my home Outlook, one for me and one for my wife, I only sync my contacts to my 548. 3) In Activesync, click on Options, Sync options, contacts, settings and make sure that "Syncronize all contacts" is checked

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.
