I just got a Toshiba E350 for Christmas, I want to sync it with my desktop, but I think the PPC is a little too old, its running Windows Pocket PC 2002.
I cannot sync it, the USB connection on the device its self just times out, if not il just run it in a VM.

Merry Christmas!

Windows 7 (and Vista) use Windows Mobile Device Center, which (I think) doesn't work with Pocket PC 2002. I think you need ActiveSync 4.5 or older (Windows 2K/XP) to sync with a Pocket PC 2002 device. Perhaps there is a Pocket PC 2003 upgrade available for the Pocket PC.

I have a Dell Axim using Pocket PC 2003 that I might try to sync to my Windows 7 notebook. Last I recall, those two WOULD sync using Windows Device Center.

You may also be able to establish a partnership using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, or in a network environment using the old PC.

Hope you figure it out!
