I just got a Sony Clie PEG-SJ22 personal organizer as a gift. It came with no documentation, and no software.

All I have is the PDA itself, the USB cabel for charging and sync. I would like to sync it with my PC running Windows XP Professional.

When I plug it into the PC it gives the sound that something has been plugged into the USB port. Then I select an option to HotSync. It asks me if I want to do it locally using the cable. After I select that, it sits there for a minute or so and nothing happens. Then it comes up with an error saying, "The connection between your handheld computer and the desktop could not be established. Please check your setup and try again."

I checked the setup and it all looks fine. Do I need any kind of software to be able to do this? If yes, where can I get it? Do I need some drivers?

I tried installing Active Sync, but it was not able to detect my PDA being plugged in.

Thanks.

What software have you installed?  You need something to hotsync your PDA, such as the Palm Desktop: http://www.palmone.com/us/software/desktop/

ActiveSync is for PocketPC PDAs, the arch rival of Palm. You should also be able to get the basic software you need from Sony's website.

Do you plan on sync'ing it with Outlook?  If so you'll need some additional software, such as Intellisync.
