Hot Sync manager shuts down during sync

Anyone run across this problem before? When performing a Hotsync with my PC Hotsync manager shuts down about half way through the process, I get no error messages from Hotsync manager when this happens everything just stops. I have checked the conduit settings and connection settings, everything is fine there, I can start to sync but it stops again, usually after it finishes with MS Outlook, leaving everything hanging for Documents to Go. I tried to should down everything except the basic settings in Hotsync manager, but the problem still occurs. This has become very annoying now as the spreadsheets that I used daily cannot be syncronized, I can transfer the files onto an SD card from my PC and then insert the card into the Palm, I can read the files but because the files are not syncronized Documents to Go locks the Excel spreadsheets meking them usless. Any suggestions anyone? Thanks for your time

SOURCE: HotSync Outlook 2003 with Tungsten E

I tried all the suggestions that were offered and gave up. But then out of pure craziness I loaded the treo 600 CD that came with my Treo 600 out of curiosity. It loaded and the MS Office 2003 conduits loaded nicely and the problem appears to be solved for now. So I tested and it the Tungsten E Hotsync's feature all appear to be okay. I'm not sure if this is the best solution but it solved a very frustrating problem. The version of Hotsync that loaded is 4.1.0. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I HotSync a Palm Vx with Outlook 2002

I wish I had found you two weeks ago! That help, though simple, was fantastic - thank you. I had no idea that Pocket Mirror was on the CDROM as it was set on autostart so it launched into the Palm Software installation straight-off. I've got a few problems to sort out with it but so far it has Sync'ed the: Addresses To Do Email not yet read Calendar ** It insists on spending a very long time thinking about 'backing-up' the handheld databases and I have to force it to close. Any ideas how to solve that little problem? I'm just about to leave for Paris so I can't pursue this anymore today, so if I may I'll follow-up at the end of the week. Meanwhile thank you for your quick response and excellent instructions. Regards

I feel your pain as I'm having even more problems than you, see my post. However, having learned quite a bit about this topic, I suggest ensuring the Hot Sync is set for the desktop to overwrite the PDA as opposed to PDA overwriting the desktop, which sounds like what's happening. That's the only suggestion I have. Hope it works out for you.

Palm T/X won't hot sync on Window XP Media Center Edition

There is a way around this. Apparently your Docs to Go will not sync. So here is my way to get around it.
Start the Hot Sync manager on your PC. Then right click on the manager. Scroll down to Custom. Click on this and you will be given the option of what you want to do for each different item that syncs. Just click on Do Nothing when you come to Documents to Go.
Hope this works.

Tungsten E - HotSync with Outlook 2003

Don't skip the initial HotSync for secondary computer! Alright, I figured this one out on my own and figured I'd post what I'd learned so that others don't have to endure the teeth mashing, hair pulling, snarling frustration. (self induced as it may be) My experiences have taught me to not always trust a cookie cutter installation wizard...especially for custom app installations (ie: primary = home, secondary=work, total sync, no priority). So, I did not perform the initial sync during installation of the palm software fearing that the new installation would NOT recognize that the work computer was a secondary machine and resultantly wipe out the old palm data from the primary machine. Turns out, as I saw in many other unrelated posts, that it's difficult (if not impossible) to specify conduit direction to outlook 2003 outside of the initial sync (this prompted me to specifically look for conduit direction during install). So, this wizard is one I should have mistake...because of weak program design. By the way...once I specified sync with outlook during the initial sync, EVERYTHING works fine despite not having installed the two "imperative" conduit updates (they were uninstalled after several previous failed attempts at this). Hope this helps

USB Connection

Do you have the USB option turned on in the HotSync Manager? Have you checked the item called Local USB in the HotSync Manager menu. This check mark ensures that HotSync Manager is listening to the USB ports on your PC for a HotSync request.

Error message using IrComm port

Hi, Right click on hotsync manager at the bottom right corner of the pc , make sure only local serial and ir is having a check mark , if anything else has check mark , just go to that and do a left click , it will get unchecked . On the handheld tap on home , on the main page u will see hotsync icon , tap on that , on the hotsync page make sure via ir , and not cradle or cable , then at the top u will see hotsync in words , tap on that , in the drop down u will see lan sync pref, tap on that and make sure lan sync is highlighted , and not local hot sync , since local hotsync is usefull only when u perform cradle or cable hot sync using usb , then click on ok , try a hotsync . If this doesnt help and again u get the same error , do a soft reset on the handheld and on the pc , go into hotsync manager , click on setup , choose local , change the com port to a different port and reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart the pc and again perform a hotsync . The error u got was coz of this , on ur pc a ir port is not been assigned .. Try this it should work .. Regards
