Macintosh: Problems with the MacPac 2

Palm Desktop 2.1 and its accompanying software, included with this book, is so dramatically improved from what came before it that the number of things that go wrong is very small. Chapter 9 covers some of these quirks, such as the peculiar relationship between notes and other records in Palm Desktop. Here are a few other items worth noting.

HotSync Gives Up

If you’re HotSyncing a lot of information, you may need to give HotSync Manager (in your Palm folder) more memory. Highlight the icon, choose File Get Info Memory, and increase the Preferred Size. Try adding about 25 percent at a time until the problem goes away.
