Lesson 9. Connecting to Your PC and Othe... > Connecting to Your Desktop PC

Connecting to Your Desktop PC

Connecting your Pocket PC to your desktop PC is as easy as plugging in a cable. Most Pocket PCs come with a cable that connects to the USB port on the back of your desktop PC, and then runs either to your Pocket PC or to a cradle, in which you sit your Pocket PC device. When the cable is connected on both ends (and the Pocket PC inserted into the cable), the connection is complete.

Some older Pocket PCs came with a cable that connected to your desktop PC's serial port, rather than the USB port. A serial port connection is not as fast as a USB connection, nor is it as automatic. If you have the choice between USB and serial connections, choose USB.
