There are dozens and dozens of posts for this all over the Internet and no one seems to have a solution that genuinely works.  I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 with Windows Mobile Device Center v6 or v6.1 and I have a Samsung SCH-i760 running Windows Mobile v6.1.  When I connect my device and attempt to sync it fails and an event is posted in the application log that says, "Windows Mobile-based device failed to connect due to communication (0x80072745) failure (see data for failure code)."  I've tried everything:  uninstalling/reinstalling WMDC, uninstalling/disabling firewalls, hard resets of my device, deletion/recreation of partnerships and nothing works.  The only way I can get my device to sync is to delete its partnership and create a new partnership, afterwhich it syncs once and then goes back to failing again.  Someone out there must have a true solution to this problem.  Please help.

I tried uninstalling/reinstalling WMDC as instructed in the link you provided and so far I seem to be able to sync again.  I'll continue to try syncing for the next week or so to ensure it continues to work and I'll report back on my results.

I've been successfully sycing for a week.  Thank you very much for your help.

Unfortunately, after two weeks of successful syncing the same problem has returned and even the process of uninstalling/reinstalling isn't working now.  This is such a common problem someone out there must have the final solution rather than all of these constantly unsuccessful attempts we all keep making.
