I'm not sure that's the case. The OP has a PPC 2002 device, which, IIRC, is
not supported in WMDC- only WinMo 2003 and higher (and Office 2003 and
higher if memory serves.)
However, 2002's are supposed to be able to "connect" to be able to transfer
files, but do not support synching.
Perhaps the OP can further define what "doesn't recognize" his device means.
