Palm Treo 755p bluetooth error
Posted on 2008-10-06
We have a Vista x64 computer that we need to synchronize to a Palm Treo 755p. Palm does not support synchronizing to any 64-bit version of Windows through Palm Desktop because they do not have vista 64-bit compatible USB drivers. The work-around is to use bluetooth to synchronize the device with Palm Desktop. About half of the time we try to synchronize the Treo 755p with bluetooth, an error message appears on the phone:
"Unable to initiate Hotsync operation because the port is in use by another application"
I have tried to disable all bluetooth features in Vista, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
