No the Axim does not support Serial Interfaces at all. It also doesn't have USB Host capability.

What is the difference between a external hard

External hard drives contain a power supply to operate a standard hard drive in a case. It usually connects to a USB port. Usb drives get their power from the wire that connects it to the USB port A regular internal hard drive gets it's power from the computer's power supply wiring.

We bought some time ago an WD External Harddisk and now the Adapter doesn`t work anymore! What can I do?

Try connecting it to a different computer.

Any external storage device has three major parts:
* USB cable
* disk-drive
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter

Try a different USB cable.

Disconnect the disk-drive from that adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if you can read the files, which implies that the adapter is the part that has failed.

If you cannot read from the disk-drive, check its WARRANTY status. W.D. will replace it, if the warranty is still valid.

Otherwise, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program: find the serial-number of your unit, access their web-site, and purchase another W.D. external storage unit, at a significant discount, by citing the serial-number.

Or, if the adapter is OK, then replace the disk-drive by a new one, and close-up the casing, to create a "revived" external storage device for your use.

Treo 650 wont sink

Assuming you are running Palm OS and not one of the rare beta Windows Mobile versions, here is my take on this.

Are you using a USB or Serial Sync cable? With either solution, make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Hotsync Manager is set to the correct setting (either USB, Serial, IR, etc). Conflicts between the cable type and the settings on your PC are common.

I prefer using USB cables since they are faster and you can tell if you are connected quicker than with a serial cable. Initiate the sync via your phone or the Palm Desktop Manager software. I have had faulty cable sync buttons and this was a good solution for me. If you haven't tried a new sync cable, you might want to.

Actually if you have time and a laptop, you can take your Treo to a Palm store and borrow one of their cables to try and sync. They were really helpful whenever I went in there.

Good luck.

If you are using the USB connection you'll need to check to make sure your HotSync is enabled for USB and not just serial port connection (the old default). Find the HotSync icon (red and blue arrows bent into a circle) in your computer's system tray (next to the clock) and right-click to bring up the menu. At the top you'll see "Local USB," "Local Serial," "Modem" and "Network." Make sure that there's a check next to Local USB. If not, just click on it, once, to enable it. Then, reconnect your Palm and activate the HotSync on the Palm (the star on the right side of the entry pad).

Let us know how it turns out, okay?
