    Has anyone managed to get their HTC Magic to sync with Windows XP?
    I've tried installing the HTCsync software but it does not even acknowledge my phone when i connect it. Has anyone managed to get this to work?

    I managed to get it worked.
    It recognized phone immediately, but next day when I try to sync it again I had the same problem. It recognized when I started installation again and select repair.
    And you must select on your phone in notifications that you want to sync it.

    hi i'm having the same problem .
    mines a uk vodaphone "google" magic
    rooted 1.5 if that makes any difference.
    my pc can recognise the phone & mem card & the phone knows it has the usb cable attatched but the sync doesn't recognise it in either vista or 7.
    thanks.

    Well if you place a different ROM on it, it may work however stock Vodafone ROM's have this ability removed. Your already rooted so give some ROM's a go!

    P.S 1.5 is so last year :p There are ROM's out there with 2.1 and 2.2 ready to go for your Magic :)

    For a start go to "gmail" on a computer and go to the 'forgot password?' settings - send an email (through Gmail app) from your phone to another email address -> this way you get the google email used on the phone. Your username is the first part of the address. I.E if it is HARRY789@GOOGLEMAIL.COM -> your username would be 'HARRY789'.

    Upon reseting your password you may have to put the full email address as the log in.

    So once you have your gmail all sorted (username and password) -> go to the contact section in gmail on the computer. Your Contacts should already be backed up and synced online :)

    Ofcourse , some other people who switch ROM's regularly use apps of the market such as "MyBackup Pro".

    Now get switching them ROM's! :D

    cheer's mate,
    it took me till late last night to find out that the usb data cable which i got with my phone is useless (apart from charging the phone).
    which is the best place to start find out the first steps to upgrading from 1.5.
    thanks again.
