I've tried opie OZ 3.5.1 and now 3.5.2 and I still can't get it to sync properly with either of the two Windows machines at work.
I flashed my SL 5500 with 3.5.2 Opie OZ (64-0 zImage), and I put Qtopia Desktop 1.7 on a WinXP laptop and a Win2K desktop machine.
I've tried messing around with settings for the windows boxes, Qtopia Desktop, and on the Zaurus, but I still haven't gotten it to sync at all.
I've read a few forum posts about usb sync problems with Windows, and I have had a couple of error messages, but even after running modprobe and shell scripts, I have not been able to get a basic sync working.
Does anyone out there have a similar setup that could document the steps to:
- flash a unit
- install Qtopia Desktop
- install correct drivers for the USB cradle (I grabbed mine off the CD that came with the Zaurus originally -- could that be a problem?)
- get sync working between the Zaurus and the computer (via the USB cradle)
Oh -- and I should point out that I can't get any connectivity over USB. I've tried setting the network and sync to various things, but I still can't get a connection over it....
I think that I'm very close, but to be honest I'm not exactly sure what steps I'm messing up.

I have a Zaurus 5500 running with the original software that I've just picked up after having it put away for a while. A couple of days in a row I have sync'd it with the QtopiaDesktop software on my computer at work, put it into my pocket, and then gone home.
When I get home, the Zaurus boots up and give me the "Welcome to Zaurus" screen.
At least I have a backup of everything on my work machine, but I'm pretty confused as to why the Zaurus is flaking out on me.
I've been wondering if putting it my pocket might be flexing it in some way (??) or maybe it gets cold outside (??) in the chilly NH winter temps, but it's only reset twice and I've carried it in my pocket outside in the cold many times. The battery looks full, but perhaps there's some problem with the terminals?
I've been trying to copy the sync'd information in QtopiaDesktop to another computer -- just in case both my Zaurus and my work machine die -- but I can't figure out what files to backup. Are they in the QtopiaDesktop directory or your home directory or ??
Oh, and as a temporary precaution until I get the Zaurus to be a bit more stable, could I configure the software so it stores Addressbook, calendar, todo, etc... on a CF or SD card ?
I've been wanting to play around with OpenZaurus, but until I get the hardware issue figured out I figure that I should just stick with the stock configuration.
