When I synch my samsung i500 with Palm desktop on my laptop, everything works great, except that the Address Book is not synching at all.
I cannot figure out how to add a conduit to add Address Book to my HotSync routine.
I can see that it is doing something with Outlook, but I want it to use the Palm Address Book.
Is there any way to fix this without reinstalling the software?
thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Address Book Not Synching
If addressbook is presently syncing to Contacts in Outlook, then you will need to reinstall the desktop to alter the conduits. The reinstall should overlay the present version. Just select to alter conduits when requested.

Just save the contacts as described above "Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is
sync'ed up. Show the Address page, select all contacts
(Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard...
This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence
of vCards." Then send the file you saved as an e-mail attachment - using any mail (i.e. gmail, yahoo, outlook, etc) - to your i-phone e-mail. Open this email on the i-phone and push the attachement - it then asked you if you want to add these, click (push?) yes, and select eithr merge or new and voila you got them.
Although I have no specific experience with synchronizing two devices, I have found related information, which I'm sure you already know of.
Thinking of the synchronization process it does make sence that you experience that data is missing on one handheld, since the last hotsync from a desktop perspective was to the same device. The way to get around it is to make one of the handheld a "master" and the other a "slave" and once you have synchronized the master you should synchronize the slave making sure that desktop overrides handheld.
Most references state that synchronizing to two handhelds with the same username could cause unexpected results.
In short don't do it - use different names!
Yes - the software was included.
Your CD software allows you to select synch with Palm Desktop or synch to Outlook. As long as Outlook is installed on the PC, the CD software installer will see Outlook and offer you this option. So the answer to your question is - reinstall the software and take the option to sync with Outlook when it is offered.
PS just in case you have Outlook Express, this is not the same things as full Outlook. Outlook Express requires third-party software for synchronization of its email database and of its addressbook (actually Windows Address Book WAB format).
If you have PocketMirror from Chapura (included with certain Palm handhelds), you can choose to install conduits that synchronize MS Outlook with the handheld applications Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and Memo Pad. You can choose to synchronize these applications with either Palm Desktop or Microsoft Outlook, but not both.
If you want to synchronize with Microsoft Outlook, DO NOT install Palm Desktop from the Web. Instead, run the Palm Desktop installer from the CD that came with your handheld and select the option "Synchronize with Microsoft Outlook" when the choice appears.
