    Since upgrading to Vista RTM and after loading Winodows Mobile Device Center
    Beta 3 Media Player 11 only shows the local storage on my SAmsung I730
    pocket PC, it doesn't show my safestorage or my 4GB SD card. Any ideas?

    I will third this issue ... Same device Samsung i730 with SD Card

    Only option I'm getting is sync'ing with media, no syncing folders or
    OneNote ...

    Syncing directly with exchange so not worried about that but sure would like
    to sync with onenote, folders, and SD media

    Same problem here with an Orange SPV M3100 and 1GB micro SD.

  6. I have a more basic problem. My SPV M600 is not recognised at all and so does
    not connect. I am frustrated!!

    I had a similar frustrating experience trying to get my SPV 600 recognised by
    my Vista Home Premium laptop after downloading the Windows Mobile Device
    Centre. I had two weeks of intermitent recognition/synch. On the plus side if
    I could get the pc to recognise my phone, the synch process was seamless.
    Then, by accident, I discovered that my pc will only recognise my phone if I
    have an internet connection. This might be the same with you Brian. If anyone
    can explain why this I would appreciate it as Activesynch always used to
    synch offline.

  8. Sorry to hear that Bob. My problems with connection went away after my Vista
    installation "settled down". A synching problem (sync failed - Active Sync
    encountered a problem on the desk top) went away after I laboriously went
    through my entire contact list (on the PC, in Outlook) and deleted all
    duplicate entries.

  9. I'm having the same issue: I only have the option in Windows Media Player to
    synchronise to my device's internal storage, even though there's an SD card
    in it, which I can browse through in the Sync Center.

    - Acer n311 with a 2GB SD card
    - Windows Vista Home Premium

    I'm having a similar problem, sync thinks it has worked and I can view my
    files etc but it is not syncing at all. I either get 'waiting for network' or
    it just keeps on trying. I worked perfectly before the upgrade to the new

    I too could not see the storage card from WMP, but found this link in
    another thread, 'FIX: Only the external storage is available when you
    synchronize content from Windows Media Player 11 to a Windows Mobile
    5-based device with AKU 2.3 or a later AKU'
    (, installed
    Windows6.0-KB931621-x86.msu on the PC, and now it works.

    I'm still having problems syncing contacts & calendar, but at least
    this is progress.
