    Help: Can't Hotsync: Port in use error message

    Have new Treo650 from VZW. Have hotsynced about 20 x in last 3 weeks. No problems.

    Today, did a hotsync. Then, wanted to try Butler. Put in into quickinstall. Pressed button again, got the following message:

    "Unable to initialize Hotsync operation because the port is in use by another application"

    I am fairly computer savvy, went thru all the settings, didn't see anything I changed.

    The time from finishing a succesful hotsync to pushing the button to do another one was about the 30 seconds it took to load butler into quick install.

    Went back to quickinstall, took butler out. Rebooted my computer. Nothing. Went to palm web site, only issue of this problem is with MAC 0s9, I am running xp pro.

    Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    It's the port on the Treo 650 that's the problem. Soft reset it using the button in the battery compartment. That will probably take care of it.
