My iPAQ's battery ran down, obliterating the configuration of the device. Now ActiveSync no longer recognizes it. In the past, I simply renamed the iPAQ in the ActiveSync menu and proceeded, but recently I've added new programs that will take hours to reinstall. Renaming the device from the default Pocket PC to the old name only results in "Name already in use" screen. How do I work around this to load the settings in my PC back to the iPAQ?

iPAQ 3870
Pocket PC 3.0.11171 (Build 11178)

ActiveSync ver. 3.7.1

Uninstall ActiveSync from your PC and re-install and see if that helps/
