Question about Palm Tungsten E Handheld
I replaced the battery in my Tungsten E and now when I try to Hotsync I keep getting an error in my system tray that the USB device is not recognized or has malfunctioned. I tried installing the software on another computer and I still get the same message. I have installed all the curent software and still can't HotSync. I have Motorola phone tools and the same USB connection recognizes my phone. Guess my battery replacement made my Tungsten E toast?
Don't try the PAlm Website: They provide you with a straight ignore. Mine hung up on me two years ago and there was not even an acknowledgement of my enquiry. Stay AWAY from anything Palm.

I finaly solved my problem. After numerous hard resets and searching PDA blogs I concluded that what caused my problem was the battery installation. Consequently I reopened my Palm device, De-solderd one of the battery wires, left it disconnected for a bit and then re connected it. After that I was able to hotsync my device like I had before

Last week, windoze started barking the same complaint at me. A hard reset (of my Tungsten E) solved the problem. Caution: A hard reset (keep the power button pressed while performing a normal reset. Only release power button, when Palm logo screen appears. The press up-key) delete ALL data (even the identity, i.e. hotsync ID) from your palm - so be sure to have a recent backup!
