That's the biggest issue, IMHO. The inconsistancy. I generally have had good luck with AS and WMDC, but now and again it'll just drive you nuts. Same goes for the issues presented in various forums. If something doesn't work right for everyone, or if you get this issue and do that it solves it every time, it wouldn't be so bad, and may even be fixable.
The undependability is the buggar, and on a part of the system that really needs to be foolproof.

I can't get it to work. I've tried all I know to do and searched everywhere for a solution.
I get the WMDC setup screen. If I click on "Connect without setting up your device", I can browse the Blackjack just fine.
As soon as I click on "Setup Your Device" , I
get an immediate popup saying"Windows Mobile Device Center Sync Host has stopped working" with a choice of close or debug.
From that point on, the WMDC will not respond untill I terminate the sync host process or reboot.
I did a upgrade to Vista so I suspect it has something to do with the leftovers from the previous installed Activesync in XP.

If only WMDC was made available more often during the Vista Beta testing.
Also I don't think the Live OneCare and WMDC were ever tested together.
Arne Hess over at the::unwired has a good tutorial on how correctly setup things. But it shouldn't be this hard.

MS should be embarrassed over this. ActiveSync should have been a big warning to them. Instead it looks like they just dressed it up and gave it a new name. Even worse, they made the migration from one to the other mystery meat.

Although I have no problem sync my BlackJack on two different PCs (One Desktop, one Laptop) running Vista Ultimate and Office 2007 (are you guys running Office 2007 on Vista?), I do have consistant problem with WMP on Vista. It won't recognize my storage card inside the phone to sync music over. I have to use my XP PC to do the music sync.

Well got it working.
I think Smartphone notes or one of the other 3rd party apps was the problem. I went ahead and deleted all 3rd party smartphone apps off the host PC and reset the Smartphone. Seems to be ok now.
I only have about 8 hours invested into getting the thing to work.

Well then, I would call that a success!
