Re: Sony VAIO + Sony Clie -- Failed HotSync
Something is blocking the connection of the computer and this device, it can be a security software like firewall or anti virus on that computer, so make sure those disable disable when you do the sync...

Maybe you could also try updating Palm Desktop or maybe downgrading Palm Desktop because I have that exact same PDA and I know it's old. If neither of those work, just pull a system restore or whatever you had planned.
I had the same problem with my clie peg-sj20 on my vista home basic based laptop. I could not hotsync after installing the original software. I've never tried to use my pda with this setup before so I was trying to find a way to make it work when I found this post, figured I would reply with what I found.
My Sony clie peg-sj20 runs the Palm o.s. 4.1 software and apparently Sony no longer supports this model. So after trying to hotsync and letting the Windows vista install wizard find the proper software, it suggested contacting the manufacturer of the operating system. I went to the Palm websight and downloaded the Palm o.s. 6.2 software which is compatible with vista, even though it doesn't say it supports the sj20. After installing it I performed a hotsync during setup when I was prompted to do so, and it totally worked. I'm not sure if this version works with other applications but it enabled me to hotsync running vista.
Hope this helps someone out there. Good luck.
I could not sync my new Dell XPS with my t615c clie. Same error about not finding the com port.
I tried the solution about Xp compatability.. and still did not work.
I thought I would have to keep my XP PC and sync to there. But then my XP Pc did not sync either.
I did a soft reset from the hole in the back of T615C and then I could sync to the XP PC.
Then I thought maybe.. just maybe if the reset worked, I could sync to the Vista PC. YEAH!!!!!!.
It might have been a combination of making the check mark with the XP compatablity.. or just the reset button. But I am a happy camper now.
Life is simply sometimes...... IF YOU WORK AT IT!
you shouldnt need a device driver for your pda to work along side with Vista, as Vista has it's own Windows mobile device centre which should run as soon as you connect your pda to a usb port.
If it doesnt run, then open up windows mobile device centre in programmes and check the mobile device settings as to whether usb is set to connect to the centre.
