There is another way to sync your Ameo with your Mac via Missing Sync. This way does not require any other software. It also keeps the setting changes after soft resets and seems more reliable.
If you use WisBar or something similiar it is probably best to exit it, otherwise you cannot get to this screen - a possible WisBar bug?
1. From the menu go 'Settings' / 'Connections' / 'USB to PC'
2. Uncheck the tick box 'Enable advanced network functionality'
3. Probably best to re-boot you Mac and soft reset your Pocket PC and check this tick box is still unchecked (unticked).
4. Then plug-in and away you go. It seems to be a lot more releiable than the previous method. I'm using the latest beta of MissingSync.
Hope this helps fellow Mac bods out there...
p.s. file sync is still very slow - but hey - too much funkiness is probably not a good thing.
