Iphone contacts "not available" to car phonebook after messing around with Outlook.pst file names and backups. Iphone4 connects to car though and other phones connect properly.

iphone contacts "not available" to car phonebook after messing around with Outlook.pst files, names and backups, on my ms XP 2003 laptop. I substituted a much smaller new Personal Folder -Contacts File, with a smaller list of phone numbers (4 only as a test) which successfully synced to the iPhone 4. The iPhone connects to the Skoda Octavia HandsFreeSystem OK (Bluetooth works fine), but now iPhone wont load the new Contacts as it did originally. However a family Nokia (never messed with) can connect properly. So must be the iPhone or more likely an Outlook.pst \ Contacts problem. Ideas?

After fiddling a little more, the following fixed my corrupted outlook.pst file:
1) I made a backup
2) In outlook under file, I exported the calendar to excel
3) In outlook under file, I imported the calendar back to outlook
And voila, it worked.

  • Hi, I am new to Applescript and after messing around with it have a few questions.

    Firstly, I love applescript so far and have made an alarm clock, simple get weather app and applescript app that announces the time and date. i would like to be able to use this as a jarvis like combined app where i can have all of these built into one applescript. secondly i would like a better version of my weather app to be included that can give me weather based on my location (not the location i have it set too). lastly it would also be a miracle if someone could give me a way to make a simple chat like bot that can talk back because i have tried setting up eliza (chat bot from apple) but because it uses ichat things are much more difficult for me as a novice to set up properly.  for instance type hi in a display dialog box and have the text returned open up in messages and be able to communicate with my chat bot that would have predefined responses for what i type. like if i type weather it would know to tell me the weather.  anyway ill have my codes listed below and if anyone can help with any part of this that would be fantastic and greatly appreciated. also just a note i will never sell this thing if someone helps me by giving me coding to get this idea working.  i just want it because i could greatly use having a virtual assistant and to use personally.  thanks in advance for all people who do help.

    Hi,
    Could you tell us what Envy 15 it is, please? I mean the full model name. The new laptops don't have any DVD drives because all drivers etc can be downloaded from the internet and all bootable images don't have to be burned to DVDs but simple converted to usb drives. Tell us also what printer you have got so we can find the right drivers for you.

  • My Photos is empty after messing around with my iPhone but i can see my pics taking by my camera when i start Camera and i click on the buttom left corner, it opens the camera roll pics which i can't see choosing Photos

    any help will be appreciated, thank you

    Photos is an app for creating albums of photos that are ON YOUR COMPUTER. The Camera Roll is photos taken with the iPhone. You cannot transfer photos from the Camera Roll to the Photos app directly; you must copy them to your computer using a photo management app on the computer. After they are on the computer you can sync them to the Photo app.
    I suggest reading the manual, as it describes the process much better than I have. http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iphone_user_guide.pdf

    If it's no longer in the store then you won't be able to re-download it - do you have a copy of it on your computer's iTunes (or on a backup) that you could sync back to your phone ?

    Long-time BB user. Curve 8530. Desktop Software 5.0 Bundle 1596.Have been a successful user of software since release. Sync calendar and contacts from Outlook 2010.Generally, one-way sync from computer to device. Sync calendar and contacts separately.  Have about 1,000 contacts in Outlook 2010 Contacts.

    First time this has happened.  How can I get the Contacts option active to sync?
    Last time I sychronized each of Calendar and Contacts prior to yesterday, Wednesday, February 20, 2013, was Monday, February 18, 2013.
    Appreciate some help, guidance and direction.  R, Marathon04

    Hello Marathon04 and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
    Sorry to hear you're having an issue syncing your Contacts.
    Have you recently added an email account, such as Gmail or Yahoo and enabled wireless Contact sync? 
    If you reboot by pulling the battery then reinsert it, do you get the option to configure the Contacts? 
    It would be recommended you upgrade your BlackBerry Desktop Software to the latest version. You can download it from www.blackberry.com/desktop and once updated see if you're able to configure your Contacts for sync.
    Thanks!

    Hi,Apple
    my iphone is not available for personal hotspot?

    You are not addressing Apple here. This is a user to user support forum. If your carrier supports Personal Hotspot and your account is provisioned for Personal Hotspot, you should find the ability to turn it on in Settings. If you do have that and cannot get it to work, then see this support document for troubleshooting help. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2756

  • Adobe encore the software that's used to decode the media is not available on this system. installing the correct decoders for the file you are working with may help correct the problem

    Hi,
      I got this message after importing about ten or so H.264 files that I encoded from Adobe media encoder.  "adobe encore the software that's used to decode the media is not available on this system. installing the correct decoders for the file you are working with may help correct the problem."
    The files we're shot with HD cameras.  Edited in Premiere Pro CS3.  I installed the update 3.0.1 with still the same error.
    I also tried a brand new project and after about ten or so files being imported into a timeline, the system crash.  I tried this twice....
        Thanks in Advance

    Hi Hunt,
           Here is the skinny.  A window base PC.  footage shot with HD sony HD cameras,  Project imported to Premiere CS3.  Once completed sent file to Adobe media encoder and render them as H.264 widescreen high Quality.  Imported them to Adobe Encore CS3.  After about ten files or so.  I got the error message.  Did all the basic trouble shoot like restarting the computer, got latest patch.  Even build a new test project with the same problem.
        Something else I read in the forums, is the encore will transcoded the project to Mpeg 2 anyway, after looking at my project I realized those few files were indeed untranscoded.  So it will be a double compression and I dont want that.  So, my new question is, what is H.264 good for ?????????? I was research that Mpeg 2 is a faster render but H.264 is a slower render but better quality.....
       what do you think ????

  • Anyone  lose the contacts from their I-5 after syncing it with outlook 2013?

    Has anyone lost the contacts on their phone after syncing it with outlook 2013.

    You are correct. There is no other way to recover this material, and yes it would have been a good idea to backup the iPhone prior to the restore. Remember that a restore to a previous date deletes everything on the device and puts it back to the state of things on the date you choose. The texts and contacts would be gone. Did you possibly sync the contacts with a supported application on the computer? That is the only other way to recover contacts. They are designed to be synced with a supported application on the computer, or with a cloud service such as iCloud, Google or Yahoo.

    Hey gwscrt,
    Since iTunes directed to you to restore your iPod, I'd check out the following article that goes over the steps to do so:
    Restoring iPod to factory settings
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1339
    I would read the document in full, but here are the applicable steps for you:
    How to restore iPod
    Verify that you have an active Internet connection, because you may need to download new versions of the iTunes and iPod Software.
    Download and install the latest version of iTunes if necessary.
    Open iTunes. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
    After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
    Select your iPod in the Source panel. You will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes window.
    Click Restore.
    If you are using a Mac, you will be asked to enter an administrator’s name and password.
    A progress bar will appear on the computer screen, indicating that stage one of the restore process has begun. When this stage is done, iTunes will present one of two messages with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
    During stage two of the restore process, the iPod displays an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remain connected to the computer or iPod power adapter during this stage.
    Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see, because the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
    After stage two of the restore process is complete, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear. It will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences, as it did when you connected your iPod for the first time.
    Have a good one,
    David

  • The calendar week view on my iphone 4s starts on a Sunday.  I am synching with outlook on my computer which starts the week view on a Monday which I prefer.  How do I change my iphone calendar view to start the week on a Monday?

    The calendar week view on my iphone 4s starts on a Sunday.  I am synching with outlook on my computer (pc)  which starts the week view on a Monday which I prefer.  How do I change my iphone calendar view to start the week on a Monday?  I am in Australia.
    I have just noticed the other discussion points - mine is set to Australia. 
    Dear Apple - as the day that the week starts on can depend on country and religion - how about making it an option that the user can change????

    I believe the week view on the iPhone is handled by the Region settings in the phone. I am not aware of any other manner to change it, as you can with Outlook.
