Sorry, this is a long post.
Yes, with version 2.x a USB connection was never an issue. It worked smoothly every time, including directly after 2.x -> 2.y upgrades.
When I open BirdieSync menu "Connection/Android USB driver", I have:
Code: Select all
Name Version Date Manufacturer
Samsung Android ADB Interface 188.8.131.52 2014.06.10 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
Samsung Android ADB Interface 184.108.40.206 2010.02.05 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
Samsung Android Composite ADB Interface 220.127.116.11 2012.11.30 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
As I connected via USB this morning I got (for the first time) a "Source Settings" window that tells me:
Android stock app
Name: GT-I8190Android ADB Interface
Along with three buttons [< Back], [Accept] and [Cancel]
Before that, I only got "Device not recognized" AND/OR "Unknown device detected by Windows" or maybe both as I forget the exact message wording.
This change is strange in itself, because I did not change anything to my Win OS in the meantime. In fact, I did not USE my Win OS at all
. It was not even switched on. The only action on the part of the system has been to go through a boot cycle, something It had done before without recognizing my Android ph.terminal over USB...
Anyway, now I briefly get "Android device as media volume connected" and a three pronged USB connector symbol in the notification bar at the top of my Android ph.terminal's screen.
Going back to the "Source Settings" window:
- clicked "Accept"
Window changed to something too short-lived for me to remember well: it went along the line of "Processing || Configuring || Detecting...., please wait"
- BirdieSync quit abruptly after 10 seconds and OS asked to send automatic crash report to MS.
- Manual restart of BirdieSync -> main BirdieSync Window opened without any other message or error.
- Clicked on "Configuration" icon:
Below what looks like a greyed out progress bar, I see: "single source connected" and father on the same line "6 configurations issues"
Below are 5 panes arranged vertically:
1) Users: my name shows there
2) Sources: (only one)
GT-I81890Android ADB Interface
: How do I set the local PC's TB instance as additional source?
The BirdieSync add-on is correctly installed on TB 38.1. In its config panel, "Server is on this PC" is correctly set.
The additional BirdieSync tool bar on TB is greyed out and displays "Impossible to connect to server 127.0.0.1". After restarting TB, it now shows "Not connected to host".
With my only visible source GT-I81890Android ADB Interface
- Disabled, Never sync'ed `+ red button OFF
I switched that ON (green - "Replace all address books in this source with all enabled address books in other source")
- Disabled, Never sync'ed `+ red button OFF
I switched that ON (green - "Replace all event calendars in this source with all enabled event calendars in other source")
: I supposed
that the above setting is right if I don't want duplicates arising on the next sync. Instead I'd like to conduct the next sync crushing all data on my Android ph.terminal with up to date data from TB on the PC (server) or ideally
proceed with a regular two-way sync taking into account the data already sync'd previously via BirdieSync 2.x and still on my Android ph.terminal. Is the latter possible ?
4) Address books (7/28)
First I tried the following address book configuration selecting:
"Each contact group represents an address book
I got a list of 7 address books.
- two accounts correspond to my skype nickname
I leave them OFF (red - disabled).
- three correspond to my Google mail address
I live them OFF (red - disabled)
- one is called BirdieSync
Previously, with BirdieSync 2.x, I only used the BirdieSync Account to store my contacts on my Android Ph.terminal.
I switch it ON (green - combine this address book). It shows 3007 items as never synchronized. and after a few seconds the fifth pane on the right show the list of all contacts.
- one is vnd.sec.contact.phone
. I live it OFF (red - disabled)
Second I tried the following address book configuration:
"Each contact account represents an address book
I read the help section but I am not completely sure how this modifies the syncing process. This time I get a list of 5 address books.
As before I set BirdieSync ON (green - enabled) and leave the four other address books OFF (red - disabled)
The fifth pane shows the list of contacts. The same applies to calendars.
I could not get past that. I sent you a log archive by email with the name cedric_birdisynclog.zip
