Can you give us some more specifics? What OS are you using? What error are you getting? How is your hotsync configured? The more specifics you give, the more likely we can help....

That said, I've had a few snags with the USB palms syncing as well. I resolved them by setting up custom connections and tinkered with the settings...eventually coming up with one that worked. With the Serial connectors, I've found tweaking the speed settings sometimes helps as well.

I use a Sony Clie, shyed from the Palms for this reason. However, I did run across one similar issue to yours and simply reinstalled the Sync software and everything worked fine. Sometimes, however, you may need to do a full removal of the Palm software and a clean install. Make sure you have all the necessary components installed. Is the Hot-sync Manager loaded on startup?

Do you receive a message when you plug the USB Cradle and press the button??
