Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

1 Answer

Hotsyncs I have 2 separate problems. On both Mac and Microsoft computers, I am not able to hotsync using the cable or bluetooth. I believe the problem is in the phone, since I attached a friends 65o by the cable and the hotsync started. I always get the same error message: Port is in use by another device, which it is not. I was previously able to hotsync on XP using the cable. It seems impossible to get thru to anyone at Palm w/o getting disconnected or to someone who can help . A second problem on the Mac is that after I reload the Palm software and updates from Palm, I continue to have the problem of not being able to add my user name, which pops up automatically anyway , and it won't let me change to another name , nor accept my previous user name, which is on my handheld. When i attempt to sync using bluetooth on the Mac, i get the identical error message I got on the Pc, " port in use by another device." Help please. Toda Rabah.

Dear Toda ;] Get an anti virus for palm os and run it, then reload the palm software. another thing to try that worked on a different device is to rename the Back-up folder to Old-Back or some other name. Do a hotsync. This usually works. Then open your old-back folder and install the programs and data to the handheld. Then do a final hot sync. Hope this helps.

I am using Windows 7 and want to Hotsync my 1000s of Memo Notes from My Palm Treo 650, I got the latest Palm Desktop and Hotsync Manager but My Computer cannot Hotsync or even detet my Treo 650....Pls...


Palm Desktop compatibility with Windows 7 and 64-bit editions Palm Desktop 6.2 was designed for 32-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. You may be able to use this software with other versions of Windows.
Windows 7: Many users have successfully installed and used Palm Desktop 6.2 with Windows 7. Palm has not done thorough testing with a range of third-party equipment running Windows 7, therefore Palm cannot guarantee compatibility.
64-bit editions of Windows: USB HotSync is not supported. Instead, synchronize through a Bluetooth wireless connection: set up Bluetooth HotSync.

I bought a visor delux on line new, and the mfg cd rom was not included. can you help me find one ?


I believe the CD only gives you the two programs that you need for your PC or Mac. Desktop Manager and Hotsync manager, both of which should be available for download from the Palm website. Find the Visor Deluxe among the devices on the site and you will find the files there.

Everything else is permanently on your Visor but you need those two programs on your computer to hotsync and so transfer files between the visor and your computer. If you haven't got a cradle or cable you can still buy them third party.

Can't get device to hotsync


First thought is that the cable has become defective - they do go wrong.

Assuming the visor is fine other than when hotsyncing, I suggest you reinstall the Desktop manager and hotsync manager on your PC or Mac, HAVING BACKED UP ALL FILES of course.

Sometimes the managers get corrupted and cause problems. Try that first, then check cable and finally a hard reset, assuming you have hotsynced recently and so won't lose loads of information.

During hotsync, data wont transfer from Computer to palm


Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

Error message using IrComm port


Hi, Right click on hotsync manager at the bottom right corner of the pc , make sure only local serial and ir is having a check mark , if anything else has check mark , just go to that and do a left click , it will get unchecked . On the handheld tap on home , on the main page u will see hotsync icon , tap on that , on the hotsync page make sure via ir , and not cradle or cable , then at the top u will see hotsync in words , tap on that , in the drop down u will see lan sync pref, tap on that and make sure lan sync is highlighted , and not local hot sync , since local hotsync is usefull only when u perform cradle or cable hot sync using usb , then click on ok , try a hotsync . If this doesnt help and again u get the same error , do a soft reset on the handheld and on the pc , go into hotsync manager , click on setup , choose local , change the com port to a different port and reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart the pc and again perform a hotsync . The error u got was coz of this , on ur pc a ir port is not been assigned .. Try this it should work .. Regards
