Hey I'm trying to save a dinosaur.

My dad has an HP iPaq h2200 running Windows CE 4.2 so this device is somewhere around 2004. I've been tasked with retrieving the contents of the device (contacts and emails) so I can move him into the 21st century. The problem is I have no idea how the heck I can sync this to a modern computer. I don't have the USB cable but do have bluetooth. ActiveSync won't install to my computer.

I'm aware that no one replied but everyone should post solutions when they find them!

SOLUTION:
Running Windows 7 Professional I have access to Windows XP via a virtual machine (Microsoft Virtual PC / WindowsXP Mode). The solution to link with an old device is to install the required software into the virtual machine and forward all the hardware there. However the best solution is to backup your data regularly to avoid the problem in the first place!
