Hi all, coming to terms with the new Mac from PC world.

I have a Palm LifeDrive that I have set-up on the Mac. Synch's perfectly, no probs at all.


On a Mac there is no LifeDrive manager, the PC tool that allows you to put files (music, .xls .ppt etc...) on the Plam & take them off again. In the Mac you need to use "Drive Mode" to do this. Apparently it should show up in your little Finder window as another drive ... it doesn't... I've mailed Palm and they advised to try both warm and hard resets which I did with no luck. Tha Palm goes into Drive Mode so it thinks it's connected but I can't see it anywhere.

I'll message Palm support again but I was wondering if anyone here had any ideas... Thanks, Shane.

Hi There, just checked that, everything ticked except Computer.

Also Hard Disks, CD's ets, connected servers under the general tab.

So that all looks right - just heard back from Palm - they want to charge me $25 to have a look at it :radioacti
