Some programs not running

Some program I download doesn't run corectly on my PDA. Mostly they startup and run for a short while then crash meaning I have to reset my PDA. The programs doesn't seem to be the problem because my brother pda can run all the programs without problems ( he has a HP LX37xx, not sure about the model number). So do I have to download some patch (I already updated the ROM),change some setting or is it something else?

My computer crashed. I have a backup of all my Palm files but am having trouble recovering them. Does anyone have instructions on how to restore backup files on a Palm Tungsten E2?


Palm backups are located in the following directory: C:\Program Files\Palm\username>\ED\Backup\

When you HotSync a PDA that has undergone a hard reset, HotSync will compare the two devices. When it sees that the PDA is empty, it will attempt to reload any backup that exists on the PC. Once this data is reloaded, the PDA will ask to do a soft reset. This is simply a restart of the device and doesn't affect any of the newly installed data. This returns the PDA to working order, with all the data and programs functioning as they were before.

Hope this resolves your problem.

Cant get google maps to work

Hello, Altrough I am not experienced with this particular model you may try the following method. First back up all your data on the internal memory of your device.This will allow you to restore contacts, programs or other data after you perform a master reset. Save the backup file to a memory card or another external storage device. Then hard reset the pda, to restore it to the factory settings. After this is done, install the program (google maps) after the pda's initial setup (wich occurs after the hard reset). Now check to see if the program works. If not, the logical assumtion would be that the program wasn't clearly designed for this pda model. Please notice that altrough all these devices run Palm OS, the actual operating system is different in order to fit each model's hardware specification. So it isn't like windows xp for example, wich can run on any computer, regardless of it's manufacturer or hardware components. If the program fails to work after all of this, you can either wait to see if google comes up with a patch to the program or a newer version that includes your pda in the suported devices list. Meanwhile you should use the backup you just made to restore the device to it's previus state. Please come back with a reply if this fails to work. Good luck.

Imate jamin mobile

hi thanks for using fixya!!

You may install programs to your Imate by using ActiveSync, just install first your activesync to you computer and then after the successull installation of the Activesync, connect your Imate to your pc using usb cable, then click activesync from your pc then it will automatically prompt you for your preferred activesync settings.

Then on installing programs, if you have the program in you pc just click the program to run and then it will automatically install it to your pc and PDA, but if you want it to install directly to your PDA, you should copy the program using activesync to your PDA, just save the prorgam file to the internal memory or to the sd memory and then from your PDA you may install it smooth and easy.

If you do not the activesync you may download Here

If you need further, let me know!

Please rate my simple solution positively! thanks!

Palm issue

Sounds like you have a memory sucking program running in the background. If you're using a launcher you may want to get rid of it. If your not sure which program on your PDA is hogging the processor you may just want to get rid of any programs that you don't use on a daily basis.
Also if you are running a program off of an SD card then it is going to run slower than if you put it on the actual PDA. Then there is the possibility that you put enough data on your program to slow the start up time.

How to occupy the whole screen when watching a movie

What you need to download is a program called PocketDivxEncoder.

Just run the program and select either the Smartphone or the PDA icon at the first prompt, then browse to the movie file on your computer and then allow the program to re-encode to fit your phone screen. Since your screen is 320x240, try either of the smartphone or PDA setting. You'll also be able to tweak the settings manually if it's not exactly what you wanted.
Have fun and once you get it working.. don't forget the popcorn. ;)

Installing this PDA on Windows Vista Home Premium laptop

you shouldnt need a device driver for your pda to work along side with Vista, as Vista has it's own Windows mobile device centre which should run as soon as you connect your pda to a usb port. If it doesnt run, then open up windows mobile device centre in programmes and check the mobile device settings as to whether usb is set to connect to the centre.

Connection problem

Have you considered software running in the background on your computer? Usually firewall/anti-virus software can block the connection. If you are running any Norton or McAfee products, it is likely the cause. Try disabling them, or boot into safe mode with networking support and see if the PDA responds from here. Safe mode loads a minimal set of drivers and no startup programs. Goodluck!

Can't remove programs

When you try to remove certain programs on the PDA the following message may appear and in some cases the program will remain no matter how many times you try to remove it: Due to the nature of the PDA and the fact that the operating system is resident in memory at all times, some .DLL files cannot be stopped and removed. For example, the program below uses a .DLL file to run a program on the Start screen and is therefore always running. The only way around this is to rename the file via Active Sync. In Active Sync on the computer, click on Explore. You may have to wait a short while until Mobile Device is displayed, then follow the program file to where the uninstall file is located, i.e. \Program Files\OmegaOne\BattPack\BatBar.dll. If you try and delete the .DLL file the following message will appear because the file is in use at the time: Select BattBar.dll file and rename this, making sure the file format has the .*** suffix and is different from any other valid format, for example, do not choose .jpeg / .mpeg. In this case we have renamed the file Once the file is renamed and saved, remove the PDA and soft reset. The program linked to the .DLL will no longer be present on the PDA. You can now re-dock the PDA, synchronise and go back to Remove Programs and successfully delete the file.
