USB - Palm (Handspring) synching?


unior Member
does anyone have any news about USB compatibility in 10.0?

The only glaring problem for me with the public beta has been my inability to sync up a Visor.

In the interest of anyone else who may be wondering, synching a visor w/ a usb cradle works fine in OSX 10.0. It uses Classic, but at least it works. Yay!

how pathetic! I must respond to my own post...

(I guess that means the answer to my question was too obvious for anyone to bother.)

Don't take it personal. We're all losers.

I guess we can't be too bad if we use OS X.

Anyway, do you still have a question?

No. I answered my question. The question was:

Can a person sync a Handspring Visor in OSX? (i could not get it to work in the Public Beta)

The answer is:

(using a usb cradle and the Palm Desktop software running in Classic mode.)

My Plam Vx has about a 50/50 chance that it will sync through Classic and when it does work it hangs when Avantgo tries to connect to the net. I hope Palm get the native version of Palm Desktop out soon.
