My IBM WorkPad C3 has stopped working. When I first noticed this the display was showing a battery charging icon at the top and the entries in my Main category in the display. Not I did would work. The next day the display showed nothing. Any ideas on what happened? Do I need to buy a new Palm Pilot?

I have CD Software, but you need the craddle in order to connect your WorkPad with the PC.
I can send you that Software by e-mail, my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org from Buenos Aires - Argentina. Please, write in the Subject box "IBM WorkPad Software"
Their is noway to retrieve lost data on the workpad c3, unless you have it interfaced. Ounce the backup battery has been removed any stored data will be removed and the unit will come back to factory default.
Please see your users manual for complete details.
You have your Hotsync software set to use a com port instead of USB. Right Click on the Hotsync icon on the lower right part of your PC desktop and change it to USB and you should be good to go.
The IBM Workpad is just like a Palm. I have the Workpad C500 which is actually a Palm M500. If you have a Workpad C505 it is a Palm M505. Anything you can buy for a Palm M500 will work with a C500 and anything you get for a M505 will work with a C505.
If you do NOT have a USB Sync cable for your Workpad I suggest you do what I did... Just get a combination Sync and charge USB cable at Staples or Best Buy for your M500 or M505 and use it. It was about 20 but you can get them cheaper on the Net.
I hope this helps you!
Palm Inc., the manufacturer of the IBM WorkPad, has recently informed IBM that a limited number of IBM WorkPad c500 and c505 models may be unable to use the HotSync function if a static electric discharge (ESD) takes place when the WorkPad is placed in the cradle. Palm Inc. has designed a new cradle for this condition. It has the Palm Inc. logo on it, but also works with these WorkPad models. Palm Inc. has a Web site that provides more information on this issue and also contains the Palm Cradle Exchange Program, which allows owners of eligible models to receive a new cradle. To determine if your WorkPad is eligible and to place an order for a replacement cradle, please visit the Palm Inc. Web site.
NOTE: If you are in the Asia Pacific region, please contact the Palm Customer Information Centre in your country for information on how to recieve your replacement cradle. Links to this support information can be found at http://www.palm.com/asia/support/contact/asiapacificsupport.html
NOTE: When ordering a replacement cradle from Palm, the entire IBM WorkPad serial number (16 digits) must be entered. The format is 1S8602MMMxxxxxxx (Where MMM is the 3 digit model number and xxxxxxx is the unique serial number).
