My BB 9700 will not sync the contact to my outlook using the desktop software. My phone does not have the wireless sync option so that is not the problem. It used to sync with the old desktop software that i had loaded from the cd that came with my phone, however I do not have that cd anymore and have installed the 7.1 from the website after i had to do a factory reset on my laptop. I have Outlook 2010, I set up an outlook file for the adress book, i have configured the desktop in the advanced settings and have tried setting it to many different folders and continue to get the same error. Which is a CRTranRec::GetLinkedRecordld : invaliad linked ld

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Here is a KB that discusses that error:
Hopefully it contains something useful! There also are multiple existing threads on this site that discuss that exact error...your review of those might prove useful, and a search of this site, using the error message, error code, or symptom, should reveal all applicable existing threads to you.
You alos may want to attempt the steps in this thread:
It starts with a process for cleanly starting over, and there is some discussion, and there is also a post (15) with links to older Desktop Software versions, if those are needed. Note that this is not, by any means, guaranteed to work...but it has worked for many to resolve issues they are having.
Good luck and let us know!

Thanks for the info. I have read the error code that you sent me and that says that because all of my contacts do not have pictures that I will not be able to sync my phone to outlook. As far as the clean start my PC as had a factory reset and I need to send the data from my phone to outlook. This seems to to be a major problem with BB desktop V 7.1

I think you are misinterpreting that KB. My take is that you have at least one contact item that has an image file, but it's blank. You need to find that contact item and clear out that blank image. There is no requirement that all contact items have an image attached to them. But, if something is wrong with one of those image files, that will cause the sync to fail with this error.

Ummm...what? Your PC was reset? I don't think I understand what you tried to say there. You can also do a 1-way sync from BB to Outlook via that procedure as well.
