I have a connection problem with hot sync.
I have contacted Sony with not luck. I have reinstalled the driver, no luck. I have checked the connections, no luck. The hot sync shows in the tray. I have tried different access #s,no luck.
Any fool proof ideas?

Hi Williammsyke, I haven't had this happen lately, but when it did occur in the past, I found that reinstalling the computer software solved the problem (or check on Sony's site for software updates). I would suggest trying that since it sounds like you've updated all of the device options already without any luck.
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.
Hot sync the phone, clean the battery contacts (touch of alcohol on a q-tip), and try a soft restart...which is simply pulling and reinstalling the battery.
If it does it again, you may have a corrupt application. Hot sync the phone, do a hard restart (pull battery, reinstall battery, hold down power button until black bar crosses bottom of screen, select "yes" to reformat, and re-sync the phone to reinstall the software and data.
If it continues to be a problem, you can try replacing the battery or removing user-installed applications one-by-one to see if the problem clears...but the problem is most likely an unstable phone.
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! terymo2
