"I've been searching around for a few weeks for this. I have a TJ-37 and it works great. Download the drivers and unpack into some folder (e.g. desktop>hotsync). Install desktop, hook up clie via usb, then initiate hotsync from clie. You will get a new hardware detection screen. Specify your folder (desktop>hotsync in this case) you want to load drivers from."
