  • go to tools>options. click on the name of your desktop pc that your synch'ing with, click settings. DONT CHANGE the conflict settings, but have a tinker with them (move it to replace on desktop, then back again etc). Click save settings...even though you havent changed them. Worked straight away for me! Been annoying the *** outta me for ages....Weird bug obviously.

  • My situation like matt76cut; working fine then all of sudden not.  Uninstalled, reinstalled upgraded to 4.5 etc.  I have also done all the little quirky attempts at a solution and have had no luck.  This is making my device useless or the PC.  Any new help?


    Thanks in advance for anything.

  • I think this trouble is Pocket PC RAM related.  When you go into Settings/System tab/ Memory/ Running Programs tab Choose "Stop All".  When I re-cradled; my Sync functioned perfectly.  Hope this helps.

  • I tried the option settings, which did not work, but may have helped. Ultimately, the PDA (HTC 8125) Stop All memory reset was the last thing I did before all worked again correctly.

  • Thank You for all the assistance.


    Here were some solutions. My PDA does have sync probs now and again but these were some solutions.


    1.)Went to tools and then options, I selected the name that I chose for syncronisation and clicked settings. I did not change the conflict settings, but had a tinker with them (moved it to replace on desktop, then back again etc). I Clicked save settings (even though I had not changed them. (Timbo1973)



    2.)Upgraded to most recent activesync.  (Some reconfiguring-nothing lost)


    3.)Pocket PC RAM related.  When you go into Settings/System tab/ Memory/ Running Programs tab Choose "Stop All".  When I re-cradled; my Sync functioned perfectly. somedayzz)


    4.)It picked up the wrong usb driver(Once), changed the driver and it was back up again. Seemed to happen when I removed the pda from the cradle and quickly returned it.

  • I didn't do anything, just turned of my laptop to head home from work, and the next time i synced, a couple of days later, it worked without any issues and has since.

    Bloody stupid software

  • On your mobile, stop all programs (settings>system tab>memory>running programs tab).

  • I thank you for posting your solution because it worked for me as well!  Problem solved thank you once again very much.

  • 100% agree. When the RAM drops low, this error crops up. I think it is only newer versions of phone and active sync software. I had old Orange ROM and Activesync 4.1 and never had this problem.


    After updates this appeared.

  • Dear wdelaet


    THANKYOU.  I am a very, very beginner computer user trying to set up Outlook with my email & link my imate jasjam. I had just got it all working & encountered this error, so I did a google search and found your answer and it worked!!!

    I have not been able to organise our technician at work to sync my jasjam with our work server, so I simply send my weekly work appointments via bluetooth to my jasjam.

    I think I have reached the best solution a novice can, but you don't know how fantastic it is to have people put answers up for people like me!
