Intermec 700 Series Handheld PC

I have an Intermec 700 series Pocket PC that I am trying to sync with active-sync on a windows 7 machine. I have the device connected through com1 and I installed Windows Mobile Device Center which I believe replaced active-sync and the device is not detected by my windows machine. I tried to use windows XP mode and I installed several different versions of active-sync ranging from 3.0 to 4.5 and the program goes through the dectedtion process but fails to communicate with device. I have my firewalls turned off and I ensured that com1 is enabled in settings on both virtual and device manager. It is my understanding that when the device is in the cradle it should automatically setup a connection. When I run the connection wizard it says com1 is available but it fails to see the device. I tried performing a warm and cold boot but it still wont sync with pc. Anyone using an Intermec 700 series with a Windows 7 that can point out how to sync this device would be greatly appreciated.

Hello

looks like serial connection is no longer supported: see "However serial synchronization and infrared is no longer supported." at bottom of page http://www.pocketpcfaq.com/faqs/wmdc/sync2003.htm

I will check this tomorrow (Win7 x64, WMDC, Intermec 700 PPC2003)

Thanks for the help! I wonder if I can get a usb docking station for my device.
There are some surplus or used available. For example " Intermec Model 700C Modem Dock  225-683-002" at http://www.currentdirections.com/used/intermec/index_doc.html

The 700 color dock features a serial port, an usb port (for ActiveSync), an ethernet port (not usable with 73x devices) and a power connector for charging.
Cool, thanks for looking into that for me!
