Pocket PC Synchronization Cannot Be Completed
Posted on 2005-03-01
I have an iPaq 3635 running Pocket PC 2000 that I synchronize with both my laptop computer at work and my desktop PC at home. I have been using this iPaq now for three years and up until 3 weeks ago the system was working fine. Three weeks ago I got a new laptop at work. My new laptop has Windows XP SP2. My old one ran Windows 2000 Pro SP4, and my desktop at home still runs Windows 2000.
When I installed ActiveSync on the new laptop and set up a relationship with the iPaq, everything worked fine. But when I got home that evening and plugged the iPaq into my desktop, after the intial synchronization it showed "1 File Item unresolved". Each time you try to re-synch and resolve that item you get a popup message that says: "Synchronization cannot be completed because a file cannot be synchronized with your mobile device. Close all programs on your mobile device and this computer and synchronize again."
Since then I have emptied the Pocket_PC folder on my desktop and laptop and tried to synch with no files to move. I have also reset the iPaq. Nothing fixes the problem. I get a good synch at work on the Windows XP laptop, but I get the above error whenever I synch at home.
Any thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
