Does anyone know where I can get a cradle or usb sync cable for an E-200? I have a BE-300 that I can't live without but I needed more memory. So, I bought an E-200 on E-Bay without a cradle or sync cable thinking I could pick one up cheap later. But now I can't find one to fit the large interface on the E-200. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,
You could use Infrared to sync the E200 with your PC. You would need a USB infrared adapter for your PC.

Thanks for the help. My laptop doesn't have an infrared port but I found a USB to IrDA adapter on E-Bay for less than $8 (including shipping).

Need more help. Active Sync on my laptop won't recognize my E200 on the IrDA port. The IrDA port identifies a "Pocket PC in range." The Active Sync on the E200 says it is connecting (but never does). But the Active Sync on the laptop says no device found. I've tried Active Sync 3.7 and 4.5 - neither worked. Help.

I found that IrDA connections between PPC (several versions, including an E-115, EG-800, and an iPAQ 3835) and my Win98SE notebook were very, very frustrating. Finally managed to get reasonably reliable connections under Activesync once I re-mapped the PC's Ir port to another port number... though it's been so many years now that I cannot remember exactly which number, if that even matters.

I found that once I updated that old Acer notebook to XP, infrared communications with a PPC were easy, effortless even. I can now beam data back and forth between these two computers using Explorer on the PC and TotalCommanderCE on the PPC (Resco fails, still, for some reason, whether in IrDA mode or OBEX, as does the native PPC File Explorer), and Activesync connection is also easy. As I rarely use Activesync (might have used it once this year), I use KillSync in startup on the PC, to make sure it's not running when I try to connect using TC... but even with AS running there is no trouble bypassing it for normal infrared send/receive operations. So I guess I'm asking what PC OS you are using.

My OS is XP SP2 Home Edition. The main thing I'm trying to accomplish is syncing my Outlook.

Hi,
After you plug in the Infrared adapter, open ActiveSync on the PC and click on File - Connection Settings. Then select the Infrared adapter from the drop down for the communications port.

To connect you then need to launch ActiveSync on your device and click on Tools - Connect via IR.
