Question about Palm TX Handheld

1 Answer

Thank you in Advance!

My TX was purchased from a 3rd party without the CD that it comes with in the package. For some reason, the Hot Sync cable won't work with my laptop. I used to have a Palm Zire 31 which originally syched with my laptop. I have tried to download software several times from online to hotsynch it, but to no avail. Can you help?

I had the same problem with my TX.  When I moved, I lost the CD.  I think what you have to do is contact Palm to get a replacement CD.  It might be a small charge for it, but the drivers are on that CD and that will make it work.
Are you using Vista at all?

Hot sync will not synchronize with the calendar

If your device is syncing but getting stuck on calendar it is likely corrupted data that is not allowing the device to synchronize that PIM data.

If you are doing a cabled sync and you are seeing that it is constantly getting stuck on 2 of 12 then this is likely the issue.

This can only be resolved by fixing the corrupted data. To do so you will need the assistance of a third party application calld DBfixit you can find it here

Set all of your conduits to do nothing and install the trial version on your device. Then run the program. The trial version will tell you what entries are causing this issue and you can manually delete them or fix them. If you purchase the program it will do it automatically for you. Depending on the number of errors you have you may want to purchase the program for the ease factor.

Do try the trial first. Definetly try before you buy.

Will a sdhc sandisk 4gb work in my palm tungsten tx?

4gb is HCSD and will not work on a TX. 2 GB is the most it will read

HCSD card can only run in HCSD approved devices.

You could delete the software and reload it from the CD and see if that works.

I would reinstall the system software from the Palm CD. If you are using the TX cable, it could be bad.
