Welcome to Geekzone...

Are you connecting this directly to a SUB port or to a USB HUB? PDAs in geneal don't work well on USB HUBs.

Also, check that Power Management is off for those USB ports (Device Manager | USB | USB Root Hub | Power Management).

Make sure you have installed the latest Hotsync on your computer, and most of all make sure there is no personal firewall blocking anything...

Now I know this might sound silly, but have you tried unplugging the T5 from the USB Cable, unplugging the cable from the USB port - then reboot the computer and then plugging everything back in again? Also the has just been an update released for the Palm Desktop plus there is a firware update for the T5 - you can dowload them from
