Greetings! I've been scouring this forum in search of a successful resolution to my hotsync issues... so far to no avail. Here's what I have: Mac G3 Powerbook (Bronze) 400mhz 320MB Ram OS 9.2.1 USB port Palm III I have upgraded my Palm Desktop to version 2.6.3 I have upgraded my Palm OS to 3.5 I used to be able to sync my Palm on a previous Mac G3 (with serial port). In addition, I used to be able to sync my Palm on my current Mac using IR port. (The IR cover is missing from Mac and no longer functions.) My Palm III has been collecting dust until recently when I decided to try to get things working again after the IR port became unusable. I purchased the Belkin USB PDA adapter, upgraded my Mac OS from 9.0 to 9.2.1, and upgraded my desktop software to version 2.6.3. Here's the problem: I cannot get the hotsync to work, regardless of what I try. I've tried restarting with the cable attached and detached, attempted different speed settings, tried USB connect and Serial to USB settings, and uninstalling and reinstalling all of v 2.6.3 and just the hotsync manager and just the conduit manager. I've been able to get a a sync long enough to update the Palm OS. But nothing more. Presently I will get either a crashed Mac, a "connection between your handheld computer and desktop was lost" error, or the desktop software just stops after the hotsync connection window opens. Has ANYONE been able to get through this problem successfully?!?!? Feedback is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks so much!
