Yikes – Tell Me This Isn’t So!


This week I had to suffer a hard disk crash & rebuild, which was a big distraction for me considering Tech.Ed Australia is so close.


Well, last night my XDA II started behaving erratically. I had seen some worrying error messages during a synch – specifically error 0x80004005. The explanation – “Synchronization cannot be completed successfully because of a mobile device software error. Contact your network administrator.” – translates to “reset your device dude, you are screwed.


I turned to a post I did last year – What’s on FDA’s XDA II – so that I could track down my essentials apps. Normally I have all these already installed on my computer and just use ActiveSync to update the device, but with the recent hard disk snafu, I had to get back to the original sources.


As if I don’t have enough to do – FFS
