    I have had my Treo 600 for about two weeks now and was waiting to make the ESN swap close to my billing date. I have synced it and installed programs from both my WinXP box and SuSE Linux.
    Yesterday I activated the phone and now I can't sync with either system. I use a serial cable, and the error message on the Treo is that the COM port is being used by another application. I get the same message on XP and Linux.
    I had done a fresh install of SUSE 9.0 and I thought that was the problem, but it did the same on XP.
    I tried reinstalling the Windows Palm software, and got the same message on the Treo.
    I hesitate to try a hard reset on the Treo and lose data.
    Can I install a backup program through Blazer to backup to the SD card and then reinstall after the hard reset?
    Are there other solutions to this dilemma?

    I found that with a fresh (new) Treo 600 the Hot Sync conduit "Cable/Cradle" may be missing. If it is create a "Custom" connection telling it what to do ie:

    Go to the applications menu on your Treo (the little house button on the keypad)

    Select the "HotSync" application

    hit the [MENU] key on the keyboard

    On the drop down list, select "Connection Setup"

    on the "Available connections" screen select [NEW] (at the bottom of the screen)

    On the "Edit Connections" screen select
    * Connect to: "PC"
    * Via: "Cradle/Cable"

    click "OK"

    After creating the connection, tap the sync icon on the Treo 600 and voila. It syncs and all is restored.

    That should do it.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply, mjoinir2k. I have checked the settings on the Treo and on both WinXP and Linux. I am going to try to sync my old 300 to see if it is a problem with my laptop or the Treo itself. If the 300 syncs, then I guess I will do a hard reset on the 600 and cross my fingers.
