  4. IMPORTANT! Install (upgrade) Activesync by installing from the CD that
    shipped with the i730... this will assure that the i730 usb info will be
    installed as well as the assurance of running an activesync version that
    has been tested with the i730. Activesync 3.8 is not required for 2003,
    and, unless it has some fix or feature that you need, I would suggest
    _not_ installing it even if the i730 disk installs 3.7.1

    all of your contacts and other pim data will transfer (warning, backup
    both the outlook data and the ppc before you start!)

    Everything in the RAM "My Documents" folder and below will transfer,
    but no programs or their settings will transfer although if you
    installed them using activesync, they should offer to reinstall. Older
    programs will notify you of an os display difference, but should perform

    You will need to manually copy files from other locations and from
    memory cards to the new device or it's card... strongly suggest using
    card readers for this purpose.

  5. Hi Berverly,

    I do understand your point about using software from the cd because it has
    been tested with the device, however i do not understand why you would
    recommend a reinstall/upgrade from activesync 3.7.1 to activesync 3.7.1 as
    the drivers for the pocket pc is included in the activesync installation it
    self. and dont understand what kind of usb info it is you are refering to?

    please explain..

    i never install from the cd's that come along with the device i allways
    download the latest part but i guess that is more religion. never had any
    problem with activesync though.

  6. There is a key file WCEUSBSH.INF on the CD which installs with
    activesync and simply contains the unique usb device identifiers and
    then "associates" them with activesync on any future usb connect.

    We have had several instances where the activesync download from
    microsoft has not included new devices in this file as well as older
    devices have been omitted.

    Installing activesync from the cd, even if it is the same version that
    the user is running for an older device, assures that the usb id for the
    new device will be picked up, something that could be important for the
    i730 as it is one of the newest ppc's and if the users current install
    predates the i730's release, it would not contain the update.

    hope this clarifies my paranoia ;-)
