Card Export 2.0 Beta

Reply from Support at Softick: could I try it on a Windows box. I duly obliged and there was no need to reset betwene mounting the card and running a Hotsync. Took the Palm back to my Mac and it still would not Hotsync without a soft reset.

Now that strikes me as very odd. Card Export must change some setting somewhere in the Palm's USB controller and not undo that change when it exits. Windows seems not to care but Mac OS X does.

If you care about reminding Palm OS developers that there are lots of Mac users out there, I suggest you give Card Export a try and send in a bug report. That way Softick will have to show their true colours and tell us if they care about Mac compatibility or not.
