I had to movve a bunch of apps from Internal to LifeDrive but now I can't add them to Favorites & I also can't categorize them. Is my only solution to use a 3rd party launcher?

Yes, your choices are a third party launcheror apps that create shortcuts to apps on your drive such as PowerRun. Personally, I am using PowerRun version 1.3.1. It has been working great. No problems.

Apps and datafile should be put into the Lifedrive\Applications directory. The OS looks there, some older apps may not find their data there and be 'hardwired' to look in the old SD card neighborhood and you will have to add the Palm\Launcher direcdtory to store those files. The Lifedrive\Documents folder was intended for Doc2Go datafiles only and many other programs don't know to look there. The standard OS can find the files if you put them in the right place. Power-run is great if you want to 'organize' your stuff to places the OS was not designed to look.

Lifedrive won't power on


When you plug the unit into the wall to charge, poke the reset hole in the back of it at the same time. This should reset the internal recharging mechanism in the Palm. Let it sit for a couple of hours and then see if it will come on.

Launcher x


if you mean "quick install" -it is full of bugs. A new beta-replacement for this useless install program is now posted on the palm site. That will install and launch applications correctly. It has taken them over a year to figure this out - that the launcher does not work, if programs are installed with quick-install. good luck

just press the time in the top left hand corner of the lifedrive and a dropdown menu comes down with the option "delete" but this is only for apps. if you want to delete media files, search for a file manager on freewarepalm.com

Setup Versamail with Outlook 2000


I use Versamail with my web-based, non-work email account (which is what it sounds like you have - web-based at least). I don't sync Versamail, I just use it to dial in to my account and download/send emails.

BackupBuddy VFS Pro supports the LifeDrive?


The readme info needs to be updated. The current readme is actually from the previous version and out of date. It should now look something like this.. (note newest info at top, previous version info underneath) BBVFS 3.1.4 New features include: + added option to backup after HotSync + LifeDrive compatibility fixes Bug fixes include: - some password letters were being ignored - fixed problem of backing up files encrypted with the built-in Security app - blank screen/crash on startup - crashes during orphans processing - no scrollbar appeared when there were more than 10 checkpoints in the list - didn't fail gracefully when trying to restore corrupted backup files BBVFS 3.1, 6.05 * Users may now select which card to backup to on devices with more than one card slot * Backup and Restore of T5 internal drive (!) is now supported * Backup of databases with records > 64K is supported, which will allow backup/restore of Photo/Videos on T3/T5/T650 and "VoiceDial" application * Advanced screen now adds new files to the backup set automatically * Wireless updating (via "About" screen) * Implemented a Palm Source Installer package * Many important bug fixes, including: Several issues relating to compression and encryption "Last Backup" being incorrectly set to "NEVER" No longer will soft-reset if no card is mounted on the T5 TUNGSTEN T5 SUPPORT This build includes further refinements to backup and restore on the T5 but we have confirmed with PalmOne that there are some issues with the T5 NVFS implementation that require a patch from to completely resolve. We recommend that all users download and install the T5 patch that is available here: http://www.palmone.com/us/support/d...ent5update.html Alternatively T5 users may want to try a program called "DBCache Tool" which you may download here: http://www.jade.dti.ne.jp/~imazeki/palm/DBcT/ LIFEDRIVE SUPPORT We are aware that this release contains some remaining issues with the new PalmOne LifeDrive and we are working to resolve them. Please contact support@bluenomad.com if you'd like to help with testing. BBVFS 3.07, 1.05 BackupBuddyVFS 3.07 is being released with preliminary support for the T5/Treo 650, although there are still some outstanding issues that we are continuing to investigate; specifically: * Power Users with a (near) full device especially may experience "out of memory" errors and/or random resets; restarting the backup or restore operation will usually allow it to reach completion. This is due to issues with the new "NVFS" file system on these new devices that developers cannot currently work around. We hope that palmOne will issue a patch to fix this, and we will continue to try and find a work-around. * Photos and Videos will not be backed up on the Treo 650/Tungsten T5.

TomTom Nav5 problem: Arm Read memory allocation error


I don't know what it is with those brits but I think they hate us here in the America's. I have TomTom Nav 4 on my wife's T3 and had problems with instillation but could not get support (real person) from tomtom. Did you buy the Nav 5 from Palm's website? I called them and they said that they were making one "JUST" for the LD but didn't know how long that was going to take. If anything if you did buy it from Palm you should try calling them and see if they can help you with it.
