Sync one PC with 2 PDAs

Post by bintan » Thu May 17, 2007 8:56 am

Hi there,
I am getting mad on syncronising 2 PDAs with my PC (Vista). The first was working fine. Having added the second to the SyncCenter, everything looked fine. Connection fine, sync successfull. Data (Adresses, Calendar) on PDA: None. No error-message, no nothing. It just looked like having successfull syncronised, but has done nothing.
The birdie-sync/Thunderbird options were also selected, for the initial sync the conflict option is "replacing items on the PDA". What's wrong there???
What I noticed is that at least using Bluetooth you can't open both PDA in the MS Sync-Center. Regardless which one you doubleclick, you end up with the same one, having connected first.

:evil:

I would be very glad on some help!!

Hello bintan,

The problem with the WMDC is that presently it doesn't properly display errors to the user. Microsoft is aware of the problem. I hope they will correct it next version. Look at BirdieSync help file for more information.

With ActiveSync/WMDC I think it is not possible to have two mobiles connected simultenously. You have to choose which one you want to synchronize.

You said that you selected cards, events, ..., in the partnership with the second mobile, didn't you ?

Could you confirm that BirdieSync was installed on the second mobile too ? (you can have installed it on the first mobile but not on the second one)

Regarding your synchronization problem, you should normally have an alert window if something went wrong. Right after the problem (no items synchronized with the second mobile), could you send me the logs as described in this thread ?

Thanks.
Birdy
