Intermec 700 Series Handheld PC

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
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.
