For what it's worth, I had quite a few problems syncing in the
beginning, although it wasn't unique to the Newt: between iCal/
dotMac, Spanning Sync (for Google Calendar) and iGTD, there were
quite a few issues. The all-round solution was to just set all events
to the Unfiled category. I really wasn't that hung up on my
categories anyway (there's only one me... why do I need other
categories to manage my handful of meetings a day?). I also set
NewtSync to Default to Unfiled, sync deleted records, and only sync
records less than 60 days old. For some reason unknown to me, those
magic settings worked. This is on a MacBook Pro with latest Tiger,
and with both Adriano's USB connector and a KeySpan/serial/dongle
combo. (BTW, the latter is only a tad more reliable, but also far
more unwieldy. Not to mention, Adriano's craftsmanship is superb.)

That, I don't know. I have over 300 addresses and they sync fine,
even with a number of custom fields, to both my MP2100 and eMate.
(Fingers crossed.) Are there any clues in the Console log when it quits?

all my best,
