I have an iPAQ 3835 Pocket PC 2002. I am trying to get it to sync
with my Thinkpad T-23 running Windows XP Professional. The XP system
"sees" the IR iPAQ, and I can transfer files back and forth, but
activesync 3.5 won't work.
I followed the instructions for IR activesync in the manual and the
help file, choosing "Allow serial cable or infrared connection to this
COM port: Infrared Port (IR)". I note that under that option it says
"Status: COM port is not available". Not sure what that means. In
any case, I go to Activesync on the Pocket PC and select "Connect via
IR" and I see the message "Status: Connecting to Host" and then, in
about 3 seconds I get the noise that it usually makes when it's done
syncing, but no syncing has occurred.
Remember, I CAN transfer files, so the IR connection IS working. Just
not activesync. I have also successfully connected this Thinkpad with
my cellular phone for syncing phone numbers using XTNDConnect PC. It
was a bumpy ride, but I made that work, too! Just not Activesync
I know you'll feel very sorry for me when I tell you that I'm trying
to get this to work so I don't have to take my cradle with me when we
go to Hawaii for vacation after Christmas.....
I'm stuck, and hope someone has done this already and can tell me
