How do you hot sync a Palm VIIx...can't get it to work?
Posted by: Wolf Larsen

I have done the following:

Connected a Palm VIIx via cradle to my G4 with a serial to USB cable.
Loaded Palm software onto my G4.
Loaded the driver for th serial to USB cable and rebooted.
Pushed the hotsync button.

Says it failed to connect.

What am I doing wrong, or is my cable connection messed up?

The stinking cable cost 3x more than the PDA! I need to figure this out or take the cable back.

Not sure what your problem is, but for the record, I sync a Palm III (circa 1999) with my MDD 867 using a serial to USB adapter and don't have any problems.

Its an ebay special. I wouldn't be suprised if the cradle/serial cable is non functional. Otherwise, I wish I knew how to get it to work.

The Palm is off ebay. The cable is new. Its a Dynex. Says its Mac compatible on the back of the package. Get it home, open it and the instructions say nothing about a Mac. Get on the web site and download the driver. Install. Boot. Nothing.

Palm Desktop

Just tried to get it to work on a Toshiba PC. Didn't work on it either. I think its the cradle. Time to leave negative feedback if he can't tell me why it doesn't work.
