I have the 2100 connect to the Macbooks USB port via my Belkin serial to USB connector cable. I'm connecting via Serial. The other choices when I try to use NCX are TCP/IP, irDA, etc. NewtSync choices are serial, my iPhone bluetooth, something called CDM899-BTDIAG....none work. With NCX 3.4 (downloaded last night after this message sent), I now get the full screen contents, but when I try to intiate connection with the Newton (as instructed), nothing happens.

I have the the Keysoan drivers and cable (serial to USB) but when I try to connect via NewtSync, I get an alert window saying the serial port is being used. I then went to Dave Lawrence's Newton Poetry site (http://newtonpoetry.com/2009/11/05/newton-connects-with-snow-leopard/), downloaded NCX 2.0.4, but upon opening the app, I get a blank NCX window. Any ideas?
