    I am syncing a 650 with Entourage using hotsync manager.

    on my old powerbook running 10.4, i would sometimes get an error saying i couldn't sync because the serial port is being used by another application (it wasn't). when this happened, i would reset the 650 by poking the reset button with the wand and when it rebooted, all was well.

    i now have a macbook with leopard. i got the same error message today after having done a number of successful syncs between my 650 and my new mac. i reset the 650 but the problem remained. i restarted the mac but it still happened. i reset the 650 AND restarted the mac and the problem still exists.

    why does the 650 think the serial port is being used by another program (it isn't), how do i stop it from happening again in the future and how do i get my 650 syncing again now?

    thank you!

    I found the answer here:

    The most important thing seems to be that your desktop machine MUST be "Discoverable", even if you have paired the devices.
