Today I placed my Pocket PC in its cradle to sync with my PC and got a message
Cannot start communications with the desktop computer. Remote networking could not start due to a critical error (Error 608)

Does anyone know what this means and how to rectify it. I've tried rebooting but no luck.

Thanks all.

Firewall issue? See 4. at click here.

Or a soft reset? click here.

Google search for the error click here.

What's the Pocket PC's make/model number? If no joy with the above you could visit the manufacturer's website & do a search or contact their support. G

Attach PC, let the sync box open, remove PC and click on file/remove partnership, close, re-attach PC and set up new partnership.

Thanks all,

It's a HP IpAQ 2210.

I tried a soft reset using the small button on the back - didn't work.
I tried the diagnostic tool in programs and hey presto - It worked.

I also downloaded version 3.8 of ActiveSync so one of them worked.

Thanks again.
