    Hi, hope somebody can explain why is it while i am hotsyncing 3/4 before the end the hotsyncing would just stay at the 3/4 point and not end.

    I would press cancel hotsync on the PC and it says to wait 1 min or longer but instead it'll take donkey long and never cancel.

    I then press the treos hotsync cancel and that too will not stop the hotsync dialog.

    So i ended up unpluging the hotsync cable from the treo but both the hotsync dialog on the PC and treo is will still remain open.

    From here i had to restart my PC and pull out my treos battery.

    When i do another hotsync right after that it went through right to the end.

    I had this problem lately and it happens randomly.

    Funny but the hotsync problem always get stuck around the 3/4 mark.

    Can anyone help on this? Thanks

    Are you getting a Hot Sync log? If so, is it telling you what is getting synced and letting you know where it's getting stuck?

    Nope. It just hangs at that point. Like i said , the hotsync dialog on the PC shows that its stuck on some app. The next time it gets stuck it'll be on something else and also towards the end of the hotsync process.

    I didnt get a hot sync log cos the PC hotsync did not complete and the dialog box will not close at that time even after i pressed to cancel. I had to do a restart for my PC to come back to normal.

    All i see in the hotsync log is time and date for that moment. No other details what so ever.
    So sorry i cant pin it down just yet

    I had that happen with my 650...same thing, I had to cancel on both the Treo and PC and restart and reset. Unfortunately, the only solution was to uninstall/reinstall the Palm Desktop. Then I hard reset the Treo, loaded my PIM databases from my SD card backup and ran dbScan to eliminate any corrupted files. After all that I was able to hot sync everything over to the PC by setting the conduits to "Handheld Overwrites Desktop" and it worked. But, I had to reload all my third party apps again...

    I had the same problem with the 600 (three donkeys long), the 650 (close to two donkeys long) and sometimes now with the 680 (a donkey more or less). I did find that dbScan would cure it more than reinstalling the desktop. If you run dbscan on current (not history) and palmone (even though I'm not sure that's accurate), and then a scan, and then do the remove all deleted records, it may (or may not) remove the donkeys.

    Don't forget to initiate a soft reset after running dbScan...

    Scanning the Current db for corrupt records is a different process than removing deleted records.

    The proper method for removing deleted records via dbScan is to choose "Neither" to begin with and remove the records for both Palmone and Palmsource dbs.

    Try an uninstall/reinstall of the Palm Desktop...
