Hi all,

I have a multi-channel sound card that does not support XP. Because of this I need to stay with Win98.

I was stunned to find out after I bought my new Pocket PC, that it doesn't work with any Activesync version below 4.0.

Is there any way I could sync my machine with outlook and avantgo? I think Activesync is pretty much out of the question. How about other choices? Is there any other syncing software out there that works with pocket pc's?

Thanks.

Pocket PC requires ActiveSync. I know it is not much of a consolation, but it's stated on the box that it requires Windows XP or greater.

Even via InfraRed it requires ActiveSync v4.0. I have tried it with v3.7 and v3.8 - no luck.

perhaps you could look into whether there's any updated driver for your sound card or not.. what brand/build/model is your multichannel sound card? you could pickup a cheap multichannel sound card from DSE or if you want a bit more brand/well-known ones, Creative's Audigy2 value has come down in price and it support 5.1, or if you want 7.1 audigy4 or X-Fi.

My sound card is Guillemot ISIS. I use it as part of my mini home studio setup.

I guess a workable solution for me will be to install XP in a dualboot config... this still sucks, but better than nothing.

Thanks for your response.
