    I installed Palm Desktop 4.2.1 Rev B on my Mac OS X 10.4.1 Powerbook yesterday. Here are some observations:

    1. The iSync conduit will NOT work with a fresh 4.2.1 Rev B install. You first need to install 4.2.1, configure iSync, and then install 4.2.1 Rev B. Furthermore, you *may* have to manually move the following conduits to the "iSync Disabled Conduits" folder: Address, Calendar, Contacts, Datebook, Tasks, ToDo.

    2. The "Send To Desktop" droplet that came with Rev B does a very bad .avi to .asf conversion. The converted frames are significantly choppy compared those from the original droplet, which I copied over the new one with. I don't understand why this is, because both versions are the exact same size.

    3. Rev B comes with new "Voice Memo" and "Note Pad" *Mac OS X* applications, though not the corresponding .prc files. See the VoiceMemo and NotePad from LifeDrive thread for how to easy download the .prc files.

    Regards,

    PS Can someplan please tell me where the Memos are saved? I lost them from both the desktop and handheld during my install. I have backup folders to restore them from, but I just can find them.

    Voice Memo and Note Pad - wicked cool!

    I didn't want to duplicate my comments in the thread I pointed to. There are some minor quirks, but I've been lost without my voice memo since I traded in my Kyocera 6035 for a T600 way back when.

    Gotta love this forum!

    I still can't get the conduit to load, even after I uninstalled the Rev B, and re-installed 4.2.1 from CD. I even hotsync'd with palm desktop so that isync would "see" hotsync manager. I feel like I'm using a Windows machine when I get a message on my mac that doesn't allow me a new route to install the isync conduit manually.

    Does anybody/has anybody installed the isync conduit manually under Tiger?

    Any help would be appreciated!
