converting .cdb to .mdb with handheld

I use activesync to convert the pocket access database files (.cdb) to access files on my desktop (.mdb).  Everything was working fine until today when I moved the files over they didn't convert over to .mdb and vice versa with moving the .mbd over to the handheld.  In active syncs edit file conversions menu I don't have the option to convert from one to the other anymore.

Any suggestions?

It looks like the version might have been upgraded from 3.X to 4.X with my new machine.  Although I  think I did the file conversion with the new version last week.

Does Active sync 4.X support the conversion anymore?

We ended up using PDA Tech Pocket PC CeSync v4 (http://www.pda-tec.com/pocketpccesync.shtml). It converts MDB <-> CDB on all versions of ActiveSync and even works with Vista!
