Have you tried JPilot?

I've used it with a Visor Neo (serial), and my co-worker uses it with his 
Tungsten E2 (USB) without any issues.

USB is a little odd with Palm devices, as the USB device doesn't exist 
until the 'sync' button is pushed.  And there are generally two - one for 
syncing, one for 'modem'.

Try plugging in the Treo 650, do a 'tail -f' on your message log, and 
press the sync button and see what you get.
