Can't run hotsync cable for tungsten e2

Have spent three days trying to solve a problem: my hotsync cable won't sync to my palm desktop software. It used to, doesn't any longer. Using Vista OS, 32 bit. Worked just fine between purchase in Sept 08 and mid-Dec 08.
Called Palm tech support (in India), paid $14.95 to have them walk me through uninstalling the entire original software, installing the "new" 6.2 software for Vista, then tell me it was a manufacturer problem (am using Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop). They (India) said it was because I didn't have com or lpt ports in my device manager. ???? Never had them before and it worked, so why do I need them now?
Called Toshiba who said they do not have these ports included and haven't had them for some time now - everything runs USB. If the usb end of the sync cable worked well before, sounds like Palm has the problem.
I have just ordered a new hotsync cable, but I don't think this is going to work. I feel like I'm getting a major runaround. Does anyone know anything about this mess?

    Hotsync does not always work. Takes multiple attempts. I am thinking that it is the cable, specifically the connection with the palm which is prone to flexing increasing its lack of ability to make and maintain a firm connection. Will try a new cable before giving up on Palm

    My Palm Tungsten e locks up during hot sync when it reaches tasks. I also have a T5 which syncs just fine on the same PC.

The digitizer part is defective and needs to be replaced.

You can find digitizer parts in ebay or other on-line companies, at reasonable prices.

Regarding the labor cost, depending of the repair shop you choose, it may be cheap or expensive.

Also, if you have minimum experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try it. really is not so difficult, and minimum set of tools are needed for it

Best regards,

you may want to run through a few troubleshooting tricks
first try pulling out any extra USB type items that you remove and replace frequently (like a flash drive) and restart your computer after its done booting up you can try hotsyncing again. Make sure what you wanted to put on your PDA is still in the Hotsync manager box.
A PDA not wanting to hotsync is a very general statement. It is an indicator for many different problems.
-You may need a new hotsync cable
-try a different usb port on your computer
-you could open the PDA up and check if all the contacts are clean and connected (Warranty void alert)
-Try re-installing the PAlm desktop software
-If nothing else works put whatever application you're trying to hotsync onto a SD card and copy it from the card and onto the PDA

Tungsten Es are excellent PDAs and it doesn't have too many problems besides being too "basic". A problem like not hot syncing probably isn't an indicator of something really bad unless you've dropped it too many times.
If all else fails you may need to pick up a different PDA

Synchronizing my Tungsten E2 with the computer.


If you have not already done so, install the Palm Desktop software from your CD. (If you do not have a CD, you can download the Desktop software from palmone.com.)

Connect the USB cable to your PC and to your E2. (If you do not have a cable, you can probably find one on eBay.)

If the cable has a button, push it. If it does not, open the applications menu (the "House" button to the left of the graffiti area) and look for the app called "HotSync". Run the HotSync app, make sure that the Local/Modem choice (above the central hotsync icon) is on "Local" and the combo box below the icon says "Cradle/Cable". The tap the icon. If this is your first sync, you may have to answer a popup on your computer before it will proceed.

Unable to hotsync with my computer


Also, if you have a new Tungsten E2 and there is no important data, I would hard reset it and then when you sync it, select the old profile of the previous Palm to see if that works.

The new Palm you have, is it a Tungsten E2 as well?

The profiles don't always carry over between different models.
