    Default Trouble with Dopod 818

    Hey guys, anyone of you own the above?

    I just got it recently and found my set got problems synching using the USB cable. I tried to sync using IR and it worked. So suspected the USB port on my set faulty.... so went back to shop to change for new set.

    The shop owner tested on his pc and it cannot work too, so he changed a new set for me. Similarly he tested the new set on his shop pc to make sure it works and it managed to sync.... Good! but when i brought back and tried on my laptop, it still could not detect using the cable the same cable was used throughout so cant be cable prob.... any ideas guys

    Klose, the USB port is working fine as it worked when I tried connecting other devices to it. Also, my laptop detected the pda and said device is ready to use... but activesync does not detects it...

    John, yes i am using ver 4.1 as provided with the package.

    xtemujin, thanks for the link... will check it out.

    I was using Nokia PC suite previously to sync with my Nokia phone. Suspect maybe it has something to do with it? Any ideas?

    Hi Josho,

    I believe prob is not on the pda. As mentioned, I tested this set at the shop with the owners PC. And activesync worked... but when i used my laptop, it did not. think prob shld be on the USB connectivity on the laptop...

    Is the option to connect by USB in the Active Sync in the laptop enable? Also might be good to change another cable to test.

    Cheers
