Active Sync issue with wince6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,


    I am working with wince6 for OMAP35xx and facing issue with Active Sync


    Active Sync generally works well in our wince device but some times does not get connected. The pop up on the device appears also on the host active sync icon turns green and tries for connection but after time out it shows disconnected with the error sound.


    Some times it shows connected but on the host if i want to browse the files its shows nothing.


    This problem is not seldom and rare to occur in my several units. Hence difficult to reproduce and analyze.


    If any of you faced such an issue, please share your experience.


    Any suggestion to fix the mentioned issue shall be also helpful.

  • Hi Vinoth,

    I tried the suggestions but no luck.


    default.vol size is 52K and remains fixed after reboot.

    If i do a restart in an automated fashion (warm boot) continuously  i could see the ActiveSync gets detected each time device restarts.

    But if i do a cold boot out of 10 tries 8 times it connects and 2 times it didnt (approx likelihood) . To reconnect the active sync i have to again unplug and replug the USB cable to the host PC.

    Why at the cold boot the ActiveSync didnt gets detected ?

    I am not sure where to look to fix this issue ?

  • Do you have hardware that allows your software to control the cable connection?  That is can you disconnect the cable via software?

    If so, it is best to keep the cable from connecting until the system is fully booted and notification APIs are available.  This will require a thread be started when the driver loads.  The thread will then wait until the system is ready before connecting the cable.

    You may also want to consider raising the thread priorities in the USBF driver.  Activity on cold boot may be slowing down the USBF driver when it most needs to provide timely response to the PC.

  • No We dont have H/W that allows the software to control the cable. No i cannot disconnect the cable via S/W


    I wish to change the thread priority in USB function driver. BSP contains PDD, thread function is in MDD hence where shall i find it in wince?

    Is it advisable to modify code in public folders or there is some other ways of doing it.


    Will changing the order of driver getting loaded at boot time will help ?
