    I restarted my computer and ran the hotsync first thing. I got a different error message. I'll try again and see if it works next time. Thanks for helping. :)

    The hotsync problem now says: The connection betweet your device and desktop was lost. Some of your data was NOT backed up. Please check your setup and try again.-- So, it worked for a minute and then I got this message. It seems to get locked up on the sync documents. Does that mean anything?

With a USB 1.1 machine .. try this ...My work around - disconnect ALL USB devices from the computer, NO multiport hubs, make a direct USB connection to one of the available open ports, then reboot the computer. Upon gaining control, then try to hotsync. If I had any other items connected or ran any other programs prior to hotsync, I was not able to perform a successful hotsync.

You will most likely have to reinstall Palm Desktop because either a Shared Library is always in use or it's missing. A reinstall should help.

HotSync error ((sys 0505) (0,841)

I also had this problem. Searched for a solution and found that the error message refers to older programs incompatible with newer models of the palm. If you do a Hot Sync on a different and/or newer model palm device there may be these incompatibilities. The usual problem programs are mypalm and mytreo. You need to delete them by
first doing a Hot Sync
going to Applications on the palm
tap on the menu icon (or the left upper corner of the display)
tap on Delete
go down the list to delete each of these programs.
Hot Sync problems should stop
If not, you need to do a hard reset and then slowly add third-party software one by one and look for problems.

Ibm workpad sync & port issues help!

You have your Hotsync software set to use a com port instead of USB. Right Click on the Hotsync icon on the lower right part of your PC desktop and change it to USB and you should be good to go. The IBM Workpad is just like a Palm. I have the Workpad C500 which is actually a Palm M500. If you have a Workpad C505 it is a Palm M505. Anything you can buy for a Palm M500 will work with a C500 and anything you get for a M505 will work with a C505. If you do NOT have a USB Sync cable for your Workpad I suggest you do what I did... Just get a combination Sync and charge USB cable at Staples or Best Buy for your M500 or M505 and use it. It was about 20 but you can get them cheaper on the Net. I hope this helps you!

Sync fails with "too many open databases"

This is what I did to fix that error:

Hard-reset your Palm to erase all data (that usually involves pushing the small "reset" button on the back, then pressing the "power on" button until the device boots, and then pressing "up" to confirm the hard-reset)

After that, sync your palm. The sync software will ask if you want to use your existing profile or create a new one. Create a new one. Then the program will offer to sync your Outlook profile with your Palm. Click on "ok", and a message asking you to accept to sync your Outlook data with more than one profile will pop-up. Click on OK, again... and that's it!
