You could try updating to a new version of active sync if there is one, if not just try installing on vista and see if it will work. I've never tried or heard of anyone trying yet so I can't say if it works or not but hey, it's worth a try

active sync is for xp only.... not vista... if you read this:

"Note: Microsoft ActiveSync works only with Windows XP SP2 or earlier. If you have Windows Vista, your synchronization settings will be managed through the Windows Mobile Device Center. Windows Mobile Device Center is available through the Windows Mobile Device Center page.:"

and this mobile device thing that for vista isn't compaitble with 2002....i have tried it already.......

Have you seen this then?

For Windows Embedded CE 4.2, 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, and Smartphone 2002 devices, basic connectivity support includes connecting over USB and serial, using desktop passthrough with the PC’s internet connection, and file browse.

Thats taken from here, not sure if thats any use tho
