There is actually an easy solution. Run the program in XP compatibility mode. First install the palm desktop cd that came with CLIE. Go to "Start"> All Programs> Sony Handheld
1. Right click "HotSync Manager" and click "Properties" click Compatibility tab and and check "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 2).
2. Then HotSync your CLIE it should work.
Other Issues if it doesn't work:
1. While installing software from cd, open cd and rightclick setup.exe and check xp compatibility, and while installing if a pop-up appears for drivers, Just Click use old drivers anyway.
2. In "Start"> All Programs> Sony Handheld
you can rightclick all the shortcuts like "Palm desktop for clie", "Install tool", "Hotsync manager" and set it to run in xp compatibility mode.
Voila... it works and its easy and don't throw away your CLIE yet.

I had the same problems. I downloaded PalmDesktop Win62.exe update from Palm.com and it recognized my USB connection, did away with the port error and hotsynced immediately. I messed with that thing for 3 weeks before I finally tried the update. It says it's not for the peg-n760c, but it works! I don't think they want you to update, but rather buy a new pda. Good luck!

SOURCE: My sony CLIE PEG-SJ20 is
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.
