Hi all,

I'm trying to get pilot-xfer to sync my Tungsten E. I have had NO luck
at all getting this bloody device working :( and I was wondering if anyone
has any suggestions..

Even after googling, nothing has helped. :(

I plug the device into the the USB port. Nothing shows up under /dev/ttyUSB*.

I try to connect:
tigerbox:/etc/udev/devices# dlpsh -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -i
   Unable to bind to port: /dev/ttyUSB0
   Please use --help for more information

tigerbox:/etc/udev/devices# dlpsh -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -i
   Unable to bind to port: /dev/ttyUSB0
   Please use --help for more information

Dmesg still gives me nothing :(

I tried this too:
Added /etc/udev/rules.d/10-visor.rules
BUS="usb" KERNEL="ttyUSB(1357)" SYMLINK="pilot"

Added devices in /etc/udev/devices (while I got the device recognized):
total 0
crw-rw-rw-  1 root uucp 188, 0 Jul 14 22:16 ttyUSB0
crw-rw-rw-  1 root uucp 188, 1 Jul 14 22:16 ttyUSB1

However, I still can't sync! :( Any ideas or who to talk to? I've been 
using Linux since kernel 0.99.. I'm not sure why I can't get this bloody
thing to work :(

TIA,

-Anne
