Connection problems WM6 device to Vista Mobile Device Center
Posted on 2008-01-30
I have a i-Mate JASJAM Pocket PC running WM6 trying to connect to Vista Business laptop via USB.
I want to use Mobile Device Center (MDC) to sync files with PPC as well install and uninstall software on the PPC. In other words, replicate what ActiveSync does with XP.
I can connect the PPC via Bluetooth and the Vista sees the device. However I do not get given options in Sync Center (SC) to create a Partnership.
I cannot connect at all via USB.
When I connect via USB the PC makes the USB connecting sound but MDC does not launch.
If I start MDC from the Start menu - it shows a dialog box saying that it is waiting for the device to connect ... which it never does.
When attached via USB, the device is not visible in My Computer view either.
I have deleted the Mobile device Network Adapter as well as oem28.* from WIndows\inf directory - still no success.
I am looking for a resolution so that I can create a Partnership with my device that will allow me to:
(a) sync files between PPC and PC
(b) manage applications on the PPC
