    Old telephone, New computer

    I recently bought a new laptop with 64-bit Vista Ultimate. I have been unable to sync my very old Siemens telephone running Pocket PC 2003. Any suggestions? I have tried what MS suggested and the computer recognizes when I plug the two together but
    it does not show up any where inside Windows, including Windows Mobile Device Center.
