Just gota Sanyo SCP-7400 and wanted to do the contacts syncing and move photos taken on the camera over to the pc.

I've seen a couple of posts by Phatboy saying that he's used the software from http://www.bitpim.org, with some results.
Wanted to know what cable to get, if there is any diff at all? (are the USB charging ones any good?).
Or if there was any news on a supported solution for the 7400 being released yet?
or if anyone has found anything else that will get the job done?

cheers,

Ty

I actually got a generic cable for the 8100 from ebay and it works fine with the 7400. I haven't found anything that works very good software wise yet, im still using bitpim but its not the best although its recieving a lot of development and a new version is out every month generally so give it a few months and everything should be supported sync wise. They have informed me that apps, games, ringers etc put into the downlaod area will never be supported due to copyright issues with the applications etc

Phatbloke, many thanks for your info, most appreciated.
I've pulled down the bitpim stuff and now getting a cable. If you see a new bitpim client and you can be bothered can you let me know?, I'll keep checking for one.

cheers,

Ty

I believe the data cable from the 8100 is compatible but not for tethered data, now someone on here is more qualified to answer this than me but i've forgotten their username and the website for their company. My advice is look through past posts from the CDMA forum

Tethered data is the ability to use the phone as a modem when connected to a laptop via a data cable. The Sanyo 7400 does not support tethered data.

Likewise the Sanyo 4920 is in the same boat. Physically uses the 8100 cable, but no tethered data support.

I read that the older version of bitpim works I don't understand
as when I log on to Bit pim I have two choices one as development and the other states it only supports on phone which is not the 7400

I'm using version 0.7.29 - official Development Version. Just select the ph type as an MM-7400 and most stuff seems to work.

FYI: An updated version of Susteen Datapilot for the NZ market is due for release 18-Apr-05.

The new version add's support for the Sanyo 7400 & 4920 (8200 is currently being investigated).

Limitations of the new version are:
- The Sanyo 7400 does not support Syncing with Outlook Calendar. However Outlook
Address book Syncing is supported and will work fine.

For those that got our mailout a slight amendment, support for downloading movies has now been corrected, and movies can now be downloaded from the phone 7400 without issue. Quicktime Player is required to play the downloaded movies due to the file format & codec used.

For customers owning an APT Data Cable and already running the existing version of Datapilot there will be an update posted to the website allowing you to upgrade to the new version.

Further information will be posted on the website when the new version is officially released (18-Apr-05).

Jp.

Have you installed the USB driver first? so that when you plug in the ph it gives the standard usb indication sound? If you don't have the driver send me you email and I'll flick it to you.
If you have that then make sure that the ph type is MM-7400 in the Settings. Leave the port allocation as Auto.
