Question about Palm Treo 755p Smartphone

Selected com port not available

Today when trying to Hotsync, the connection between the handheld and the desktop could not be established. I'm getting a message in Setup saying the selected com1 port is unavailable. An hour later it worked, but now it's not connecting again and the com port error message comes up. So it may be intermittent. THis has not happened before, at least not for any length of time because I've always been able to sync over the last couple years and with my Dell XP purchased in January. Any ideas ??

    All of a sudden my palm won't sync to outlook. When I push the sync button on the phone it goes to the menu on the phone but nothing happens on the computer. The last succesful sync was on June 17th.

Can't sync my palm z22 to my computer


I had this problem recently and once I checked all of my settings, and adjusted a couple, it worked fine. To do that, on the desktop computer, open Palm Desktop and go to HotSync and then, under that is Setup. When the set up window opens, click on connections and be sure the type of connection you use is selected. In my case, I use the USB cable. Close that window. On the handheld, click on the hotsync image and be sure the connection method matches what you set up. Local or modem are your choices. My selection is local. Go to Preferences on the handheld and select Communication. Select connection and a window opens.From that list, I selected cradle/cable. Hopefully that will work for you. Try doing a hotsync at that point, and see if the problem is fixed. Mine was.

CONNECTION CANNOT BE ESTABLISHED


Check your USB ports with another device like a flash drive.

Reset your USB ports:

Here is what you can do to refresh the USB ports:
1. Right click MY COMPUTER
2. Select PROPERTIES
3. Select HARDWARE
4. Select DEVICE MANAGER
5. Select UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS
6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
7. Uninstall all entries
8. Reboot your computer
9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects
THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB drive.


If your USB ports are working, download and install the new version of Destop Manager and HotSync @

Can not find an available Com port for Hotsync


Right click on the Hotsync icon in the taskbar (usually at the bottom-right hand corner of the screen) and select "USB" sync, while unchecking "Serial" or "Com" options. Then, initiate the hotsync from your palm handheld, rather than computer. Hopefully this will help!

Hotsync problem


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. The qwerks of the T5 and the sync conduits. Hope this helps Bob

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!

hi, on ur palm tap on home , u would see hotsync icon tap on that , on the hotsync page , u would see ur name on top or just welcome , make sure u see direct serial on the same page , tap on the top left corner where it says hotsync in words , in the drop down , tap on lan sync prefs , make sure local hotsync is darker in shade. on the pc make sure u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , if not , click on start , click on all programs , choose palm desktop , inside that u would see hotsync manager , left double click on that , if it doesnt appear at the bottom right corner , try 4times , then if it still persists , restart the pc and try again. Once u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , right click on that , left click on setup , left click on local , choose a different com port , reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart ur pc and try hotsyncin , if it doesnt work try the previous step again and do not forget to restart ur pc , and then perform a hs , it will work ....
