Mobile Device Center changes device id every sync .. breaks apps

    Every time I sync my PDA, Mobile Device Center changes my device id to
    "WINDOWSMOBILEXX" where XX is any number between 1-99. This breaks all my
    registered apps that rely on the Device ID.

    I have edited the device id in the registry on both Vista and PDA, and that
    makes no difference.

    Any ideas?

    Yes, I found the exact same problem. I use Vista Business and my device is a
    Dopod D810. Searched through internet and somebody said blanking the device
    id field will work. But my device device refused to let me enter blank - it
    kept prompting me to enter a name.

    It seems quite many people encountered this issue... just wonder why
    Microsoft haven't found it out and resolved it in the first place ?
