Hotsync Is Asking For a Password... Why? by LloydSev
Posted: 14 Apr 05

Generally the password is 0000.

If that does not work, here is a response I found on the web, taken from pdaphonehome.com.  Hope this helps

    *** READ THIS FIRST ***

    I take no responsiblity for corupting data on your palm or desktop computer. This process may cause data corruption. Syncing to multiple computers can have disatsterous results (ie. deleted records, duplication of records). Be warned.

    Here is how to get rid of that password (and any records marked private): On the Palm, tap on the security icon from the main menu. Tap on the password field. On the bottom of the box that pops up, there is a lost password button - tap it. You will now be warned about your private records.

    You should now be able to hotsync with your old computer.

    My suggestion - when it asks for your username, create a new one. Then use the palm desktop to move any records you want to add to your palm from your old username to the new one. You will then need to hotsync again to get everything to the palm. Doing this will help aleviate the data corruption problems.
