Can't synchronise anymore

I've been synchronising my N70 with Outlook Calendar and Contacts successfully for a number of days. This has now mysteriously stopped working with no obvious error message or anything?

My setup is as follows:
- Nokia N70
- Windows 2000 SP4
- Outlook 2000 SP3

When I click on the 'Synchronise Now' button the Nokia PC Sync icon in the system tray flashes a number of times but does nothing?

I've tried re-installing, re-booting all the usual things but to no avail.

Any help or advice with this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Right click on that sync icon and view the last report, if it says something tha is helpful.
If re´booting your phone (take battery out for a moment) won't help, you an try to choose "new sync settings" from the sync application that should force slow sync (like th efirst time sync) to your device and maybe it helps.

Re: Can't synchronise anymore

I'm using the latest version 6.6 that I've recently downloaded from the web.

I've since deleted two files (.sml & .lml) from the following directory:

\Application Data\Nokia\PCSync\SynchData\357093001567613\

and it appears to work properly now so I'm not sure if the settings file became corrupted?

I'll post back again if it fails again in the future.

Re: Can't synchronise anymore

Thats pretty much what you need to do if you find you cannot sync anymore.

There will also be a folder with your phones imei number there somewhere to, removing that fixes a lot of issues to.

You can also get them talking again by deleting all Calendar entries from the phone and starting again.

Calendar (right navikey tilt is default) > Options > Delete > All entries > Yes

Seems fairly simple to me ;-)

Re: Can't synchronise anymore

Easy on 9300 too:
Plan a):
Calendar -> Shift+Ctrl+D -> Options -> Change the End day to tomorrow
Plan b):
Open Calendar, press Shift+Ctrl+Chr+k to kill the application and then delete the file (C:\System\Data\Calendar) from the device memory :smileywink:
