    Got a 680 all installed. Have a Tungsten C ditto. Desktop is the 4.2 versh, has two users identified. After much messing around, I got the 680 to hotsynch yesterday via bluetooth, but I had mistakenly renamed the Tungsten files and lost contact with their contents. So I did a system restore back to when I hadn't done the re-name, re-ran the 680 files, and all looks good when I eyeball the desktop(s). I even copies the datebook and contacts info from the Tungsten desktop to the 680s.

    Now I want to hotsynch, to get all that good stuff onto the 680 itself. However ... the 680 sees/talks to bluetooth & vice versa, tries to connect with the PC, but reports "the connection ... could not be established". All is on COM7, as it was yesterday.

    So then I switched desktop & hotsynch identities to that which the C uses, tried to hotsynch the C. Same result. Tried it again. Bingo! Synchronized, correct user ID and all.

    Switched back. Same result: "the connection ... could not be established". Same after a soft reset, too. Clearly I'm missing something.

    Might it be possible that by having identified - on Palm Desktop - the 680 as "Treo" (and the Tungsten by my name) is the problem? What does the Treo or the Desktop look for to identify the device to the software?

    Solved. Got a USB connector. Will figure out bluetooth some other time.
