Help active sync will stay in limbo attempting to connect to cradled axim
I have problems with my axim being connected to my laptop. First of all, I followed the instruction to install, outlook then active sync3.5 then when prompted plug in the cradled axim x5. But the active sync will not connect properly, it will connect and disconnect, or sometimes it will not detect the axim at all!!!
I tried restarting my laptop and no help. I tried to change a usb port and no help. I tried to remove the axim from device manager and then try again and still no help. I tried to uninstall active sync and then reinstall and still no good. I even tried with active sync 3.6 and its all no good.

Does your system detect the handheld? After you connect the cradle or cable to the computer, then you should be prompted to install drivers for the handheld. Make sure that Dell Pocket PC appears in the Device Manager.

Guys it's probably down other sync software on your system like phone sync, I had the same problem yesterday, sometime ago I had installed software for my HTC phone, check in add/remove programs & uninstall anything that sync with your computer, then reinstall activesync.
Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA)
with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50
and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by
using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to
the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to
a computer using a sync cable.
Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the
PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PC Companion CD.
The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will
get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a
sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that
ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync
connection is successful.”
Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.
Well windows vista doesnt need any software to run the axim, it has a hardware feature on it to detect and sync to it. Ive never heard of this. I would be able to help better if i was in an instant message session with you and able to see things better. If you have google my account is: clintchance if YahoO! clintchance1101 hotmail: firstname.lastname@example.org (yeah i know, i dont like to change the username often.) If you can contact me on one of those i can help you better. Im usualy on after 3:00 PM CST
windows vista uses its own sync software, which is available on the windows marketplace
if your vista is original you can upgrade to this software
if you use xp version, just keep using the usual active sync
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.
