    I have a Palm Vx and I am using the Palm USB adapter. I am using Windows XP Pro. I got it installed and it appears to be OK, but when I try to Hot Sync, it times out saying the connection could not be established. The hot sync manager shows it set up on com4. Any ideas why it won't work? Thanks in advance.

    Right-click the hotsynch icon in the system tray and be sure that Local USB is checked.

    It is. That's not the problem.

    Good luck, I bought 2 separate USB cables and neither worked. I finally ended up buying a serial port card and that works.

    corina,

    I already tried the drivers from the Palm website...no luck there either.

    I recall a number of complaints on this forum about the Palm serial > USB adapter and recommendations that the Belkin brand is more successful. You might want to do a search here for Belkin USB adapter and see what comes up. This won't solve the issue with your Palm adapter, but making another in a different brand may at least get your Vx up and running.
