Fix broken iSync caused by the new Palm Desktop 4.1 Apps
For all those who lost iSync synchronization to a Palm device after installing the new Palm Desktop 4.1, there are two alternative methods to make iSync work again:
  1. Reinstall iSyncPalm.dmg
  2. Disable the "Address Conduit" and "Datebook Conduit" (in /Library -> Application Support -> Palm HotSync -> Conduits)
After using either of these methods, iSync synchronization will work again.

Not all users will be successful with these 'work arounds'.

I just bought a new Power Mac and installed a fresh system (10.2.5), then I waited for an update... the update came but my M130 still won't sync.

iSync recognizes my Palm be for some reason it will not recognise iSync.

Similar problem here. New Dual 1.25, but using old drive (that's
another story which I submitted as a hint), but now with reinstall
of Palm Desktop and iSync (in that order), iSync doesn't show
Palm. I guess I'll try syncing anyway.
Can't be sure what's going on since a I have nww computer and
new Palm Desktop in about a two day perisd.
Bad timing, but Smalldog had the refurb Duals for sale with
SuperDrive, so what was I going to do?

Did a HotSync and iSync showed a progress bar, but doubt
anything happened (I'll check when all is done). However
HotSync Progress is showing iSync activity (Palm just says
Snchronizing)
Here's the log:
iSync Conduit starting 5/1/03 1:25:25 PM
Timeout waiting for Sync Engine, exiting 5/1/03 1:31:43 PM
iSync Conduit synchronization failed
?iSync Conduit? failed (error = #-2)
--
and recent changes to Apple Address Book on Computer didn't
make ti to the Palm

Patiently waiting for a fix.

This is exactly the problem that I am having with iSync and my Palm. My bluetooth phone, and my iPod sync just fine. I have tried all the usual suspects, reinstall, permissions repair, address and calendar conduit disables. I have all of the most current versions of the apps, but am totally stumped on this one. It looks like there is some communication between the PDA, Hot sync and iSync. but when it comes to the actually synchronization, they don't talk.
