Iphone 3GS - windows 7 - syncing problems with windows live mail

I brought a new iphone 3gs last week and tried to sync it with my new dell PC running windows 7 (with windows live mail).
It wouldnt sync, so I read the forums and reset the sync history through itunes.
This worked, and synced my iphone to the computer. It appears to have backed up all my contacts on the iphone to somewhere on the PC (cant find where) but it hasnt copied the contacts from windows live mail to the iphone
Have I confused anyone??

have you tried using imap instead?
if you can access your email from the web page then sounds more like a problem with windows live mail and not your BT account

  • IPhone 3GS SYnc problems with Windows 7 64 Bit

    I am having sync problems with windows 7 64 Bit.
    The iPhone syncs a few tracks then hangs, a few minutes later itunes tells me the iphone has timed out.
    Anyone have any ideas about this. I have tried different USB ports, cleaned the apple USB cable contacts with Servisol, restored the iPhone and reinstalled itunes.
    iPhone and iTunes are latest versions.
    Thanks
    Joe

    "Try this connect the iPhone, let the mtp driver installation fail, then go into the device manager and uninstall the unknown mtp device. If you then scan for new hardware from the device manager it should recognize the iPhone & update the driver."
    Ok here's what I did:
    1) Connect the iPhone (iTunes had been installed)
    2) No MTP driver installation is happening as Windows detects iPhone successfully
    3) Open Device Manager
    4) There seems to be 2 drivers for iPhone that are active now, although I still can't see which one is the MPT driver you're referring to.
    One of them sits under Portable Devices: "Apple iPhone". If I view the details of this driver, it lists the following files:
    - C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\UMDF\WpdMtpDr.dll
    - C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\winusb.sys
    - C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\WUDFRd.sys
    - C:\Windows\system32\WpdMtp.dll
    - C:\Windows\system32\WpdMtpUS.dll
    The other one sits under Universal Serial Bus controllers: "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver". And as indicated by Joe above, it lists the following files when I view the Details:
    - C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\usbaapl64.sys

  • Photo sync problem with Windows Vista?

    I did some searching and was wondering if there is a solution to the photo sync problem with Windows Vista. I have gone the route of changing some of my photos to bitmap files but this is was way too much work just to view on ipod. I like to email Apple but could not find a link to do so. As far as I know I have all updates but still the iPod does not sync photos. Is there an update to this that I am missing or am I stuck changing all my photos to .bmp files?
    Thanks,
    Dean.

    I checked out the article and not much help, thanks anyway.
    Would it make a difference if I purchased Adobe Photo Album or would I still be stuck with changing and saving files to .bmp extensions? I have Adobe Photoshop album starter but still have to change file extensions.
    If someone has a solution to this problem I would really be greatfull. I did contact Dell as this is a brand new computer and that was a wash. They did give me a number for Apple but of course I bought the iPod off of ebay and has no warranty on it so unless I pay a fee I'm not calling. It just blows my mind that Microsoft and Apple can't or won't come up with a fix. But I guess when Microsoft wants you to buy the Zune or Apple wants you to buy the overpriced Macintosh why would they waste time on having there products compatible with each other.
    Thanks.

  • Sync Problem With Windows 7 64 Bit

    just purchased an iphone 4 and it won't sync properly with iTunes. When I first connected it, it stated that it could not read the contents and said I had to restore the iphone to factory settings. I did this and it still throws up the same message. It does appear as a device in iTunes with the name of the phone but only allows me to have the restore option. I have also unistalled and reinstalled iTunes with the 64 bit version of the program as I am running Windows 7 64 bit addition. Any help is welcome.

    Hey all,
    are you running your computer in Admin mode? Meaning can you do all the things an admin can do when logged in as you on your computeR? I have Win 7 64bit and have had not one problem syncing my Iphone 4. TRy a differetn usb spot as well. And when you first plugged in your iphone did your OS install the driver for it? That might have something to do with it as well! try running itunes in admin mode or compatibility mode Win XP. Its not the phone but something in your systems isn't reading the phone as it should. just my 2 cents.

  • Hot Sync problems with Windows Vista using a Tungsten E2

    Need Help solving a hot sync problem. Have a Tungsten E2, about a year old. Use Windows Vista OS. Can not sync to desktop. It worked fine for awhile then stopped sync'ing. Have reinstalled Palm Software, Have downloaded Palm 6.2. Have deleted all 3rd party apps,,,and their back up files. Particulary,,,,Epocrates apps, Took over my PDA. Installations and updates gets to synchronizing Calender and 'freezes' have left it on overnight figurng lots of data,,,,no progress. I need help. I really enjoy using this equipment.  I use my PDA for all my scheduling of work shifts appts etc. I would appreciate some suggestions. Thanks in advance. Mike.
    Post relates to: Tungsten E2

    Hi..  Welcome to the Palm forums.  So if I am understanding you when you try to sync it goes to calendar and freezes and never completes the sync.  That being the case the first thing you want to do is go to the conduits and turn off calendar then sync and all should be successful, except calendar will not sync.  What this indicates is that you have corrupted data in your calendar, most likely on the E2.  Do a google search on your computer for a utility 'dbfixit' and download it to your computer.  Extract it so you have the dbfixit.prc file and double click on it to put it in the installer.  Then, insuring the calendar conduit is off, sync to install it.  Once installed run dbfixit.  This utility is free or can be purchased for (I believe) 12.95.  The free version will search for corruption and problems let you know where they are and you will have to manually fix or delete them.  If you register it, when you run the utility it will find the errors and fix them as well.  Once all errors are fixed, turn the calendar conduit back on and you should be able to sync.

  • Sudden sync problem with Windows XP professional

    I have been syncing podcasts, music library, etc plus my contacts and diary with MS Outlook.
    Lately (first time ever) I discovered that my Outlook contacts and diary have not been syncing, while al other iTunes items sync perfectly.
    The only thing that seems to have changed is the upgrade of iTunes to the latest version within the past week.
    I ran the diagnostics in iTunes - the resut was:
    ** iPhone/iPod touch Sync Tests **
    One or more sync tests failed.
    Most Recent Device Not Currently Connected:
    BUT, all other test items were fine.
    I do not understand why it says the device is not connected properly - the basic iTunes stuff syncs perfectly well, just MS Outlook fals to sync. I know the changes I made to iTunes podcasts all updated correctly.
    I tried a full laptop reboot after disconnecting the battery etc plus I powered off the iPhone.
    IS THIS IS FAULT WITH ITUNES CURRENT VERSION?
    OR, is there another issue? Has anyone else had this problem? Wat should I do?
    Many thanks for your time and help.
    Simon.

    Many thanks for yur help. I suspected that since it was the only thing that had changed before the problem arose.
    BUT, is Apple providing the earlier version of iTunes or a fix?

  • Zen Touch sync problem with Windows Media Player

    Please can someone tell me how to get my zen touch to sync with WMP it worked fine until i was advised to install an update to it and it has stopped recognising it! I'm using windows Xp home and have the latest "plays for sure" firmware on the player, Also another problem i cannot install the creative mediasource software to the pc as its wants the player connected and it doesn't recognise the player either!!! the player is recognised in the device manager though can anyone help me please thanks in advance.

    I am having a similar problem. I've upgraded firmware(2..0), mediasource(5.0.38), drivers(plays for sure), and Media player(), in that order. After each update, I checked how things worked. That's how I discovered I needed the next. With WMP 0, things were working fine, but I wanted WMP back on my computer. Since then, in CMS5 it takes about 7 minutes to load the player, at least 0 minutes (or sometimes not at all) to edit anything (tag info or playlist) and WMP hangs completely. I've seen that other people have gotten this combination to work with their Zen touch players. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Any ideas on how to fix this?

  • Sync Problems with Windows seven

    I recently had to re-download windows7 on my computer. I was able to download itunes and it works well. When I tried to sync my ipod i received the "erase and sync?" question. I chose to sync but itunes froze and refuses to sync. It does not even begin to sync. I've tried reinstalling itunes and the driver. I learned that if i wait enough itunes will unfreeze but it still refuses to sync. It does charge my ipod and recognizes it but it wont sync. I have tried restoring my ipod but i receive an error message that i cannot due so due to an unknown error. In case it is important I keep music saved on an external harddrive.

    After docking your iPod touch click the info tab on the main screen there you will find a number of settings to allow for contact and calendar syncing with applications that use the systems vcard directories such as Microsoft Outlook Contacts. Hope this helps

  • AD sync problem with Windows 7 64 bit

          When using 32 bit Jabber correctly syncs with the AD and pulls the Display Name and is searchable.  When using 64 bit, Jabber only pulls the User Login info in place of the Display Name, which for us is just a 7 digit number @ our domain.com.  Does anyone have any suggestions?     

    My generic question here is whether you changed the jabber-config.xml file or not? By default - on both x86 and x64 to my knowledge - Cisco mapped the name shown to mailAlias not something useful.

  • Is the Apple TV - iTune sync problem with Windows VISTA resolved yet?

    I just bought Apple TV yesterday. Tried syncing with Vista Desktop. In exactly 2 minutes, ATV disappears, with few content synced up. Tried with XP laptop and it works. I see lot of discussion on this topic, but is there any real solution, other than returning it back?

    This same exact thing is happening to me when I changed computers.
    I had it working fine from my desktop, but I recently switched to a laptop and I now get the same sync issues.
    I even restored my ATV to factory settings!
    What gives?

    The easy and quick way to fix this is to connect your iphone to itune...
    1.Go into your iphone (Top right of itune).
    2.You'll see 3 different topics in bold - Iphone, backups and options.
    3.Go to options and uncheck all the boxes (make sure you remeber what was been check before you uncheck anything in the boxes).
    4.Check only - manually manage music and video and press apply (bottom right of itune).
    5.Wait for it to finish the process (it should delete everything).
    6.Then it is up to you.... either go by each tap and sync each one (info, apps, tones, music, movies, TVshows, podcast and photos) or uncheck manually manage music and check whatever it used to be before you unchecked everything.
    7.All done, Everything should be working perfectly.

  • HT1349 Hi all,I have just purchased new iphone but have difficulty in completing the itunes download with message : problem with Windows installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected.

    Hi all,I have just purchased new iphone but have difficulty in completing the itunes download with message : problem with Windows installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected.
    Would appreciate help...its driving me up the wall!!

    Perhaps let's first try updating your Apple Software Update.
    Launch Apple Software Update ("Start > All Programs > Apple Software Update"). Does it launch and offer you a newer version of Apple Software Update? If so, choose to install just that update to Apple Software Update. (Deselect any other software offered at the same time.)
    If the ASU update goes through okay, try another iTunes install. Does it go through without the errors this time?
