Damn, Palm might have just got me.
I bought the new Palm m130. It is the 100 series of their hand helds.
Well first off non of the 100 series items fit the m130, you have to buy the items that fit the m500 series. i.e., extra cradle, and the key board.
So I have to return both the cradle and the key board tommarow and hope I don't get charged restocking fees because both boxes are not open. I just want to exange them for the correct ones.
But on the bigger problem, I cannot get this thing to sync with my computer. I keep getting the same erro message: (Hotsync Problem, Unable to initiate HotSync operation because the port is in use by another application.)
I have shut down everything I can think of and still no sync.
Well after about two hours of trying on my desk top, I pulled out my lap top which does not have a lot of stuff on it. Installed the Palm Desk Top and I will be damned if I don't get the same message.
Now I am getting really POed here. I just unhook the USB cable and I hit the hotsync button again, and it still tells me the same err mesage and its not even hooked up to a computer.
Does anyone have any ideas? I went to the palm site but I could not find anything to help me there. THe threads that did deal with hotsync problems did not have any useful information.
To bad, as I will hate to have to take this thing back because it seems like it will be a nice hand held.
I have a HP Jornada 548, but I don't use but a couple of features in it and the palm really does work a little easier.
I am giving the HP to my wife or I will sell it.
