When I use USB serial adapters if I'm not careful about plugging them back into the same USB port that I used them in the first time, they get assigned to different COM port numbers. Eventually they'll collide with a number that was assigned to a different device, and not work. (Although I don't recall this particular error message.)
Here's the comm port assignments..
I found that there was a collision on port 6, so I deleted all the BT ports "on Bluetooth RFCOMM from TOSHIBA
". There went my ppc sync. When I plugged in the Zoom Bluetooth USB dongle
, all the ports installed again.
I got Active Sync
awake and forced it onto port 7 Bluetooth USB
(where it was). The ppc synced up again. I changed the Prolific port
to port 8. No joy.
Still got the yellow bang in the icon. I don't want to do that again. *whew*
