I upgraded to Activesync 3.1 - text files (.txt, not pocket word files) aren't recognized and don't synchronize. This worked fine in all previous versions of Activesync.

Any ideas?

Hi,
Are the files in the My Documents directory? Do they get copied over? If so they do not need to be converted to be usable on your Pocket PC.

Yes they are in the My Documents directory -- this was working fine before upgrading to AS 3.1 - e.g. the upgrade is the only thing that changed.

Now when I try to sync, it leaves the files unresolved (tasks, messages, contacts, calendar, etc works fine). When I click on Resolve, it comes back with this error:

Conversion failed - the system cannot find the specified file. That message box is displayed 3 times for each .TXT file it tries to sync. After 3 times, it then gives one message box saying "The file xyz.txt cannot be synchronized with this mobile device. Ensure the file is not in use.. etc."

Before, when I posted the note, it was saying "unrecognized file type" for each of these .TXT files -- now the behavior is different.

My leaning is to uninstall AS 3.1 and reinstall AS 3.0 (or 3.1). Comments?

One other thing: if you go to AS Options (click on the Options button), go to the Rules tab, then click on Conversion Settings, there is no entry for .TXT files (I believe there used to be) - do you have a mapping for .TXT files in your Rules list?

Are you able to convert plain text .TXT files (not pocket word)?

(To do a quick test, create a text file in Pocket word on your CE device, save it as plain text, and see if it syncs... thanks)
