Are you connecting from dock to USB on computer, or serial to USB via a USB-serial adapter? UBS-serial adapters are notorious for not recognizing attached serial hardware. What kind of errors are the Jornada and the computer throwing? Can you give any specific error numbers?
If you are connecting using the serial cable to a serial port on your computer you need to make sure that the Jornada is trying to connect to the correct COM port (and that the computer is allowing connections through the correct COM port). Do this by: 1. Open Device Manager (R-Click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager) 2. Expand the "Ports (COM)" plus sign 3. Beside each COM port's name it will say (COM#) - the # tells you which port the COM is 4. Go into ActiveSync and open Connection Settings (in the File menu in ActiveSync 4.5 - the latest) 5. Make sure all the check boxes are checked and that the correct number COM port is selected in the drop down menu under "Allow connections to one of the following:" 6. Connect your Jornada via the serial cable, make sure the Jornada is on and connected to power cable (I have had more success with the power on - may or may not affect your problem) 7. Click the "Connect..." button in ActiveSync. The Jornada should be detected.
If your computer has an infrared port you could try that, I have had a lot of success with infrared connections with my Jornada. Also, try installing ActiveSync on another computer that has a serial port and try connecting the Jornada to that computer. It may be a problem with your computer.
An older version of ActiveSync should not make a difference. The facilities are the same, just slightly rearranged.

MIPS, SH3, and StrongARM are types of processors used in handheld PCs. Some software requires a specific processor to run. For instance, Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 requires a StrongARM processor. The Jornada 565 has a 206MHz StrongARM processor.
Only a hint. Did you check the small print via the downloads for Pocket PC on the Microsoft web pages? If you download from the regular OS pages they don't mention that certain Pocket PC generations are not supported.
I noticed this but only on Media Player downloads fom the pocket PC pages but it takes time to find this more detailed info.
