It  sounds  like DatebookDB.pdb is potentially corrupted. Any oddities  on
the  Palm  side  (Calendar in particular)? Any  peculiar  events  recently

Try  HotSync Manager. Go to "Custom...", then temporarily disable the Cal-
endar  conduit.  Try HotSyncing again. Any luck? If  synchronisation  gets
jammed  at a different stage, DatebookDB.pdb can be ruled out as being the
culprit.  If none of the above offers a solution, I suggest you try to use
your backups. They are often located under:

<PALM-INSTLLATION-DIR>/<YOUR-USERNAMER>/DataBook  or  perhaps it was  also

I  can't check at the moment as I use neither a Mac or a Windows  machine,
thus I can't use Palm Desktop.

Hope it helps,
