Windows Active Sync 4.5 not Working

I'm using windows active sync 4.5 on my WIndows XP Pro Sp2 computer. I'm trying to sync my HP-2200 series pocket pc with my Outlook 2003 SP3 contacts and calendar. Here is the problem it used to work fine. When I drop my hand held into the cradel. It shows that  it is syncing my calendar and detects 120 items in my calendar to sycn. Yet when I check my calendar on my hand held it is blank. The same it true for my conatacts. I'm using McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise 8.5i and non of my settings have changed. Any thoughts?  Also  I have done a factory rest on my hand held and it didn't fix the problem.
