usb cable not reading
      01/24/03 11:41 AM

I am from Cape Town, South Africa and last month purchased my Palm Zire from Fry's Electronics in Austin, Texas.
For some reason, neither I nor my company IT consultant can get my office computer with Windows 2000 and USB port to read the Palm Zire.
Using the same Zire USB cable, the computer happily reads other devices like digital cameras.
I do know of some movie CD's for example, that are geographically user-limited, but cannot for the life of me diagnose what this problem is.
Surely a USB port is a USB port is a USB port?
I may be missing something very basic and would be delighted to have it pointed out to me, so I can get 'hot and synched!'.
It would sure make inputting a lot easier!
Many thanks in advance,
