There are additional USB drivers that were installed when you went through the setup from the i500 distribution CD for the Samsung USB Composite Device and the Samsung CDMA modem. These drivers are not actually used during HotSync operations. As with all USB TAPI Com port drivers, the COM number being used will change if you plug the cable into a different physical USB port on many systems and laptops. Additionally, if you have other Palm OS serial devices, or Palm OS devices with USB-to-Serial converters like the Samsung SPH-i500 or the Palm USB Connect device you must maintain the Local Serial checked in order to sync these devices.
The i500 is a native mode USB device, you MUST have Local USB checked to avoid problems during HotSync moperations. We recommend that you leave the Local Serial entry UNCHECKED, unless you are actively syncing one of your other devices. If you see any error messages regarding Com port availability from HotSync, just hit the OK button. As long as the Local USB setting is checked, you will HotSync without problem.
