I have a Joranada that sporatically reboots an E-PC when inserting or removing from the USB cradle.
Then the USB ports are disabled till you unplug the E-PC.
Doesn't do it via serial cable.
Sent Joranada in for repair.
Loaded Active Sync 3.5
Any ideas or anybody with the same problem?

It could possbily be a loose connector or more likely its a broken flexi PCA. You could try swapping the screens with another Jornada, by buying a faulty one off of ebay that doesn't have a faulty screen.
When you smell burning silicon thats a sure sign you are going to need a new one. Sounds like some pretty severe damage to chips if it smelled up the whole car. But the battery charging light still working is a good sign, which means its not a total loss.
Occasionally under XP Pro, my 564 won't be recognized when I put it on the cradle to sync. I just take it off the cradle and try again. My understanding is the XP loads an HP driver when the Jornada is detected as connected by USB, if that driver doesn't load succesfully, then XP won't recognize the Jornada.
I use an Omnibook 500 with a Jornada 545 as you describe without problems. The most likely cause is the difference in processors. The first version of Pocket PC was supported on three different CPU architectures. The Jornada 545 uses an SH3 processor. Applications designed for the 565 will not run on the 545. You will need to find applications designed for the SH3 processor.
This may be a simple case of removing all the entire active sync directory.
If you used to connect via serial+com it wont be detected on usb.
Remove active sync from your pc via the add remove program feture, then reboot and re install.
Then run the make a connection again from active sync.
Hope this helps
There have been issues with the cradle PCB on the EM-500. Casio has redesigned the same added an IC & a few additional componentes.
I had similar problems & simply could not connect through the USB port. Worked flawlessly with the accessory serial cable (direct connection - no cradle ). This also was on an XP system.
See if you can wangle out a free replacement/fix for yout cradle from Casio.
