I have a Mac running Snow Leopard and have a boot camp partition where I
have Windows XP installed. However I am UNABLE to connect my old Windows CE Jornada 720 and sync. I have tried syncing via USB, and most recently purchased a USB to serial adaptor on ebay and connected it to Windows, installed the driver and still cannot sync. There is nothing wrong with the Jornada or its serial cable as the Jornada syncs just fine with my ANCIENT Windows 98 Laptop. What are your thoughts? Thanks..

That machine is practically an antique. Does it have drivers for Windows XP? If not, that might be your issue. Windows XP was a radical departure from Win9x in terms of the underlying archetecture. So, if there isn't an updated software package for XP (should be available from HP's support site), you're likely going to have trouble with it - even in Boot Camp.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I have used the machine on XP PC's before so not sure what the problem is. I installed MS Active Sync but maybe I need to try reinstalling it. Will that work?
