Active sync My 168 is not recognized by my computer. It may be a problem with a contact point in the plug since I have synced it in the past. Any solutions?

    I can no longer activate active sync, it always worked in the past. Cleaned contacts, re-loaded program, still no luck. Also, when the unit is off, it will on occasion turn itself on. This may be part of the problem, not sure it it is related.

    Used to work on two computers (laptop and desk). Now get 'trying to connect USB device' icons on the PC, and 'connecting' on the Navman mio168, then connection fails and navman says 'not connected'. Same whether logged on as user or administrator. Runnign Windows XP-prof, with Sophos anti-virus on the PCs.

    Activesync stopped working for me when I installed SP3 for XP. I think it's a known issue with no solution yet. Apart from 'upgrade to Vista'...

  • markwea Apr 10, 2009

    Resoldering the connector only helps if that was the problem in the first place. In any case, Activesync has started working again for me. I suspect a later Windows update, or some other change in configuration, has fixed the bug, at least for me.

    It was a **** solution unrelated to the problem.

Transfer books from Kindle to iPad

You are able to move the books to computer, and then sync ebooks to iPad with iTunes. When the Kindle users connect their Kindle tablets to computer with the USB cable, their computers will recognize their Kindle tablets as external hard drives. Then the users can copy and paste the ebooks from Kindle to computer easily. After that, the users are able to sync the books from computer to iPad with iTunes.

This is easy to be done. But when users begin to sync their iPad with iTunes, they may come up with the sync problems of iTunes. The problem may come up when users sync ebooks from iTunes to iPad. During the sync, iTunes will erase all the non-purchased items in your iPad mini. If you are new to iOS devices, you will probably lose files during the sync with iTunes, so you'd better close the auto sync and manually sync the ebooks to your iPad mini with iTunes. The following tutorial will be helpful if you aren't sure about how to accomplish the task:
  1. Start iTunes and go to "Edit > Preference > Devices", and check "Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically".
  2. Plug iPad into computer via USB cable, and the software will recognize your iPad and display the iPad icon at the upper right corner.
  3. Click the iPad icon and choose "Books" in the summary panel. Choose the books you want to sync to iPad in the list below, and click "Apply" to start.

My computer wont recognize my mp3 player what do i do?

Hi Mitchell
Try this solution to your problem.
Go to Device Manager
To get to Device Manager you will:
Right click on My Computer>Properties>click the Hardware Tab>Device Manager.
After you are in Device Manager look for your MP3 player or Unit.
Here you should see no "Yellow" exclamation points.
If you do they they are telling you that you have a device conflict.
If you currently have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknown device" which would be your Player or Unit.
If you unit has an exclamation point by it, then you will need to click on it and delete it.
After you remove all devices with conflicts then click on refresh and search again for your MP3 player/Device.
The computer should install your device this time and solve your problem with connection of the MP3 player/Device.
Please take time to rate me.

Setting up HTC Sync to recognize your phone

After installing, set up HTC Sync to recognize your phone.

1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Accounts & sync.

2. On the Connect to PC screen on your phone, tap HTC Sync and then tap Done. Your phone attempts to find HTC Sync on your computer. Wait for a few seconds for the process to finish.

3. If your phone displays a message indicating that it's unable to find HTC Sync, try disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable, and then repeat step 2.

4. When the Phone Connection Wizard is displayed on your computer, click Next.
Enter the name you want for your phone, and then click Finish.

Check the HTC Sync icon at the bottom-right side of your computer screen. If it appears green in color, that means your phone has successfully connected with your computer and HTC Sync recognizes your phone

You may have too much music on your laptop so it won't sync with the mp3 player but you could try and copy and paste music from your music source to the mp3 player.

Sync Outlook Contacts & iPhone

When you create a new Contacts Folder you have to make sure that you create as a subfolder of the main contacts folder (in the create window you are shown the file tree).

I had the folders moved in different groups as well but I am not sure that it made a difference.

Please note that you have to leave outlook and itunes on for a few minutes before they synch and iTunes see the new folders.
