Windows XP SP 2 Sync Problem
« on: September 26, 2004, 02:17:24 pm »
Hi, I habe two computers running Windows XP. One with the new service pack and one without the new service pack.

My big problem is now, that Windows XP with SP 2 cannot sync anymore with my C860. Instead of showing a progress bar window, a message with an OK button is displayed and nothing ever happens. Without SP 2 everything works fine.

I am using the driver and Intellisync software from the original Japanese CD-ROM. On both computers the USB network is running and working.

Please help!

Have you checked the wonderful (so they tell us) new WinXPsp2 firewall settings?

SP2 is horror. I had to install it on my TabletPC because of some new handwriting features and ran into one day of reconfiguration the fullautomatic user security features

Ok I seem to have identified the problem:

The Zaurus network drive (Samba) can only be accessed, when the W-Lan on the Zaurus is running. Now if I transfer files, packets are sent through USB and received through Ethernet (W-Lan). Maybe this is the problem when trying to sync to.

Does anybody know how to solve this assymetric communication problem?

 Well I have no problem syching my 5500 running 3.13 rom to Outlook on XP SP2. I didn't experience any issues when I upgraded. I use Norton Firewall so just turned off Windows Firewall.

I am using C860. I can't install the intellisync from the original CD. I just install the software from 5500. It works fine for me at WinXP SP2.

Well, I got it working by disabling all network devices except the Zaurus USB one.
