USB Link to Handspring Apps
A few days ago I posted in "Help Me" if anyone knew how to use Palm desktop Software to HotSync with a Handspring Visor Deluxe. Though there was a comment "not possible" I finally got a reply from Handspring Online-support which is quite interesting:
Dear Handspring User,

Thank you for your e-mail.

At this time there is only a Beta Version that is available for the Mac OS X. Once the software becomes available it will be posted on the web site.

Thank you,
Handspring Technical Support

Handspring Visor and OS X Happy Together
Authored by: genecutl on Dec 17, '01 08:35:55PM

I just purchased a Handspring Visor (Prism) and have successfully hotsynced with the Palm software running in Classic Mode through a USB connection. I read somewhere that the Palm Desktop has to be running and in front when you start the sync (I haven't tried it otherwise). Things that didn't work are the AvantGo conduit and a travel USB hotsync cable (as opposed to the cradle--though that cable also didn't work on another computer running OS 9, but did work on a third OS 9 computer).

I also have a new Prism that sync's just fine.

BTW, you just have to have Classic running to start a HotSync. It isn't necessary to have Palm Desktop up. (There is an OS9 extension that listens for the HotSync button to be pressed. Sort of like the iTunes Helper)
