Connectivity issues with Casiopeia and Dell

Connectivity issues with Casiopeia and Dell

I'm having a problem getting my Casiopeia 100 to reliably connect to my Dell Latitude LS notebook.  It's intermittent at best.  It may work from the boot, but if you un-sync the PDA from its cradle, you can't go back, and the computer hangs.

Thanks for your help, in advance,

RE: Connectivity issues with Casiopeia and Dell

I had a similar problem with my Dell Inspiron 3700 docking station and my HP Jornada synchronization.  I lowered the connection speed and it took care of it.  This may or may not work for you, but it's worth a shot.  Please post your result(s) if you tried so I'll know for the next time.

RE: Connectivity issues with Casiopeia and Dell

Thanks for the suggestion.  I actually solved this a couple of months ago.  The connection speed was part of the problem.  The other part, which I think was the major problem, was the version of ActiveSync I was using.  I first tried with the CE Cd that came with the PDA.  That was my first mistake.  Once I upgraded to Activesync 3.1 from Microsoft, things went smoothly.  But, if the connection speeds don't jive, you'll never get a connection.  And since I have solved this problem, I now have the dubious honor of supporting our fleet of Casios and othes PDAs.  Man, I should have left well enough alone.
