  5. Click OK to save your changes, then click File, Close to close ActiveSync.

  6. If your iPAQ Pocket PC is in the USB Synchronization Charger/Cradle, synchronization begins automatically. A folder is created on your desktop that is named after the name you gave your iPAQ Pocket PC when you set up your partnership (for example, Pocket_PC My Documents). If your iPAQ Pocket PC is not in the cradle, synchronization begins and the folder is created when you place your Pocket PC in the cradle.

    NOTE: If synchronization does not begin automatically, on your personal computer open ActiveSync and click File, Options, Schedule tab. Under Desktop schedule, select either Continuously or On connection from the dropdown list box, then click OK to save the changes.
  7. Copy any files you want to transfer to your Pocket PC to the Synchronized Files folder for transfer during synchronization.

  8. To verify that the files were transferred successfully, on your iPAQ Pocket PC, tap Start, Programs, File Explorer, My Documents folder.
