Please try setting the IP address of your machine with the MySQL database in the connection string.

Please note, some synchronization tool (e.g., Microsoft ActiveSync) should be used even if you work with some emulator (e.g., USA Windows mobile 5.0 Pocket PC R2 Emulator). Before deployment make cradle to the emulator you want to use via Device Emulator Manager (the Tools menu in Visual Studio). After cradle the ActiveSync icon in the tray should become green (indication that synchronization is successful).

If the problem persists, please tell us the version of your dotConnect for MySQL Mobile. You can see the version in the Tools | MySQL Mobile | About menu of Visual Studio. Also please post here your connection string.
