Hello All,

I am very curious to know what Palm hand helds are compatible with the Mac Book Pro? :confused: If anyone has some hands on experience with this I would greatly appreciate your advice.

Many Thanks,

LingLing

Most recent ones should be, (barring Treo 700w).

I have a Zire 72 and it works absolutely fine through Palm Desktop, but I would prefer to use it through iSync for calendars. However, it doesn't recognise the Palm software being on there and so iSync does not work for me.

As long as you are happy to sync through Palm Desktop, you should be fine with all the current range, (again, except the Windows based Treo 700w).

I went back to just using Palm Desktop, but I used to sync to iCal just fine using Apple's iSync conduit. Have you tried that?

To the OP: I have had no problems since I upgraded my palm to the Tungsten E2. Syncs just fine. Now when I was trying to use my old Palm IIIxe, that was a pain...

Ok, so to sync up my E2, I just have to run isync? Will it interface with iCal and whatnot? Just got a Macbook two weeks ago, still trying to figure out some things.

I have a Palm TX and a Tungsten E. Both sync perfectly with iSync on OS X.

Like dansgil metnioned I also recommend Missing Sync as it gives you more flexibilty and features. One very useful feature it adds is the ability to mount your memory stick as a seaparte disk drive. It also allows syncing with itunes and iphoto. Good luck. :)
