One test to try is synchronisation with somebody else's computer. Ensure the
unit itself is able to communicate with /a/ desktop or laptop. If all is
fine, assume a port issue. The O/S anomalies should not be an issue. If you
have done these initial tests, please return to this newsgroup and report on
the outcome. I'd be glad to help further. *smile*
PS - I suggest you post to one of the higher-volume Palm-related newsgroups.
Not many people will have read this.
