I am building a serial cable based on max233 IC, using the reference schematic in the max233 pdf.

So far I haven't been able to connect neither of my 2 treo 700p to Bitpim.

I ve got myself a multiconnector from a T5 synch cable.
I am using a laptop, have not tried it on my pc yet, its in repairs.

Serial cable isnt available locally so I decided on building one.

Anyone have gone the max233 route?
