...no pun intended!

;)

I'm having a hard time with sync on my Mac because it complains about the USB port not having enough power to recharge the 7100t. Very odd.

Plus I have to say "Sync Tasks," then wait for it to do that. Then I have to say "Sync Addresses," and then wait again.

I can't seem to do them all in one shot!

ALSO: hello NoVA 'berrys. I just moved away from your neck of the woods! My old office was on N. Washington St in Old Town! (And my old house was in Oakton/Fairfax Co.)

Thanks. As a future switcher this is important to me. Hey gmsmith, are you not having the same issues as sempai? Could it be related to which Mac you have? (i.e. maybe the USB ports are different somehow...)

Connect directly to the Mac USB port on the box, rather than the Mac keyboard USB port. That helped some people.

FWIW:

At home I'm using a 12" PowerBook connected to an Apple Cinema Display (one of those big wide LCDs).

I was connected to the USB port on the 12" PowerBook that wasn't being used by the hub on the back of the Cinema Display.

I think it was just being flakey. The software (PocketMac) is a very very close effort - it isn't quite 100% but it is servicable and if you've ever read anything I've written about iSync and OS X you'll know how amazingly critical I am of Apple and sync technologies for mobile devices.

I think PocketMac is good, just not "great" like almost everything else on OS X!
