I have tried many times to connect my HP 2215 to my computer via blutooth. Two two devices recognize each other, but they will not connect through ActiveSync(ver. 3.8)
The only thing I can think of is that when I set up a new conection on the pda through ActiveSync it asks to select a COM port, I selected COM 4 which I beleive is the default but still no connection.
Has anyone else been able to fix this problem?

you might need to syncronise the webcam with the bluetooth device http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/microsoft-activesync/3000-2094_4-10031823.html Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 is the latest sync software release for Windows Mobile-based devices. ActiveSync provides a great synchronization experience with Windows-based PCs and Microsoft Outlook right out of the box. ActiveSync acts as the gateway between your Windows-based PC and Windows Mobile-based device, enabling the transfer of Outlook information, Office documents, pictures, music, videos and applications to and from your device. In addition to synchronizing with a desktop PC, ActiveSync can synchronize directly with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 so that you can keep your e-mail, calendar data, tasks and contact information updated wirelessly when youre away from your PC. ActiveSync 4.5 supports PC sync via USB cable, Bluetooth, or infrared connection. hope this helps

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.
Does your USB adapter provide serial port connections ? I had the same issue with an USB adapter with a dedicated-to-phone software. I changed to MSI bluetooth adapter and then made a serial port available to COM5, then connect activesync to COM5. (make sure on the ipaq you create a shortcut "activesync connection" and pair with the bluetooth adapter.
I have bluetooth Activesync working on my hw6515 connected to a Dell x300. Followed the instructions in the User Guide Chapter 9. Need to take note of the com port assigned to bluetooth serial port on the PC.
Connection must be initiated each time from the IPAQ ie go to buetooth manager and connect the activesync shortcut.
