Copy a file from mobile device to PC

Hello Experts,
I'm working on a project using a Symbol MC3090 scanning gun (seen as a "mobile device" by Windows XP when connected to a PC via Microsoft ActiveSync).  The handheld contains an application that produces a text file as output.  I am trying to automate the copying of this text file to a folder on the PC.  Since XP is not assigning a drive letter to the device, I cannot navigate to the file from the PC unless I do it manually through ActiveSync or from My Computer.  I'm trying to automate this process so the user doesn't have to "Explore" the mobile device to find the file and manually copy/paste.  Is there any utility out there that will do this?  I considered using a macro builder of some sort, but not sure that's the best way to go.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Check the configuration of the device to see if there is anywhere that you can change it from mobile device to storage device in the usb connection configuration.

Does the symbol have access to the internet somehow? I was thinking you could make a Dropbox account and have the text files go in there.

Hello Ittogo and IT_Crowd,
I was able to find a companion app to Microsoft ActiveSync (called Easy Sync) that allows bi-directional file copy by use of automated tasks.  Your answers were both good suggestions had I been able to configure the device as a "storage device" or connect it to the network.  Since I had already posted the question and you were so quick to respond, I felt obligated to split the points.  Thanks for the help!
Best Regards,
