I have a Sony Clie (PEG-N710C) and i can't get it to hotsync. It keeps saying that, "Unable to initiate HotSync operation becase the serial port is in use by another application." I have been trying to get it to work for 2 days now. I thought it was because of a device i use to program radios that seems to take control of the serial ports but i do not think that is the case. I have completely reloaded the computer from scrach and and the only thing i have done to the computer is load windows XP w/ SP2, Office 2003 and install the Clie software and it is still not working. I went into the device manager and hit the sync button on the base and it shows it picks it up but it is stoped for some reason. Any help would be nice.
