Having problems hotsyncing with Kontact

Kontact recognized my Palm M515 and will backup everything from the Palm into Kontact. The problem comes when I add new events into Kontact, which is my preferred way of adding things to my calendar. When I sync with my Palm, all the new events are erased from Kontact and don't appear on my Palm. Any ideas?

Look at kpilot and how it is set to sync. It may be set for the Palm to overwrite the desktop. You need to set it to reconcile differences and/or set it for the desktop to overwrite the palm... Be aware if you use the latter, you won't save changes made when you make an appointment in your palm and try to preserve it for the desktop...
