Restoring information on pda from backup

I recently flew longhaul and my battery was removed. When I switched it on again it attempted to restore the info but something went wrong. (possibly the battery was flat) When I was able to reset it - all info has disappeared and it's back to square one. I have a backup on my SD disc but the filename doesn't show when I get into the Asus Backup.I can't type in a file name - it won't let me. Is there some way of doing this? I have also tried to connect to my active sync on my computer which has files backed up but it doesn't recognise the pda and I am not sure what I called it last. When I looked at the file it had my first name and surname (last name) on it so I have renamed the user using the same again. Help!!!! How do I restore all the info from my backup?

SOURCE: Hardware buttons does not work anymore...

My Asus A639 is also frozen on the blue Heart of Technology screen AGAIN. None of the buttons work, hold button is not active, cannot switch it off. The first time it was fixed by Asus under warrantee - took 5 weeks. The freeze might be related to using GPS software Copilot V6 - not certain.

Help please - how do I do a total reset?

The problem is related to TomTom software. There are two methods to solve this problem.
(1) You can choose to install TomTom 6.1 which has solved the sound problem if TomTom V6.1 is available for end user.
(2) Find “BtCoreIf.dll”in Windows directory and rename it to "BtCoreIf.old”. Then, reset the device to solve the sound problem.

Next to the headphone jack, on the longer side, you will find a "HOLD" slider switch. It is presently showing red, meaning engaged. Push it back to the off, or normal position. This will release the lockup.

First method you can restore your ipod. But this will erase all your data on ipod. So if you have recent backup then go for restoring ipod. For that just connect your ipod to computer- then open itunes. Make sure you have installed latest itune version otherwise update your itunes first. Now open itunes then find your ipod under deivce tab at the top left sidecorner. Click on your ipod icon. Click on summary and then click on restore.

Once you complete all that procedure your ipod is unlocked which was disable or locked due to wrong passcode.

How can I unlock a passcode?


If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, your iPhone will be disabled for longer intervals before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect it to the computer with which you last synced it [if it has been synced to a computer].
Note: You can configure your device to erase itself after ten consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it [or iCloud]. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present.
Please also note that Apple representatives can't unlock an iPhone for you without restoring the iPhone, either. The restore process will erase everything on it.
Apple's official instructions to restore an iPhone with iTunes are:
  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer [that you have previously used to sync the device].
  2. In iTunes, select the iPhone in the "devicess" list, then "Summary" at the top of the screen.
  3. If iTunes doesn't automatically synchronize your iPhone, do so manually [and confirm that the sync and backup were successful.]
  4. Click "Check for Update." iTunes tells you if there is a newer version of the iPhone software available.
  5. Click Restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process. When restoring, it is recommended that you [again] backup the iPhone when prompted.
  6. When iOS Setup Assistant asks to set up your iPhone, choose "Restore from iTunes backup."
  7. Select your device in iTunes and choose the most recent backup of your iPhone.
After this process, your iPhone should be restored with the information from its last backup, but it no longer will have the passcode enabled. It would be wise to think carefully before setting another passcode or using the passcode feature again.

FORGOT PASSWORD


If You Are Locked Out, Have Forgotten Your Passcode, or Just Need to Restore Your Device

If you have forgotten your Restrictions code, then follow the instructions

below but DO NOT restore any previous backup. If you do then you will
simply be restoring the old Restrictions code you have forgotten. This
same warning applies if you need to restore a clean system.
A Complete Guide to Restore or Recover Your iDevice (if You Forget Your Passcode)
If you need to restore your device or ff you cannot remember the passcode, then you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and re-sync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. Refer to Updating and restoring iPhone, iPad and iPod touch software.
Try restoring the iOS device if backing up and erasing all content and settings doesn't resolve the issue. Using iTunes to restore iOS devices is part of standard isolation troubleshooting. Restoring your device will delete all data and content, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, and calendar information, and will restore all settings to their factory condition.
Before restoring your iOS device, Apple recommends that you either sync with iTunes to transfer any purchases you have made, or back up new data (data acquired after your last sync). If you have movie rentals on the device, see iTunes Store movie rental usage rights in the United States before restoring.
Follow these steps to restore your device:
1. Verify that you are using the latest version of iTunes before attempting to update.
2. Connect your device to your computer.
3. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
4. Select the Summary tab.
5. Select the Restore option.
6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the
Back Up option. If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary
to create another.
7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up,
you should not have to worry about restoring your iOS device).
8. When the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple
logo while starting up:

After a restore, the iOS device displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. For updating
to iOS 5 or later, follow the steps in the iOS Setup Assistant. For earlier versions of
iOS, keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or
you see "iPhone is activated."
9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. If you do not have a
backup to restore or have forgotten your restrictions passcode, then restore as New. If you are restoring to fix a forgotten Restrictions Code or as a New device, then skip Step 9 and restore as New.

My phone wants to shut off at any given time


Has the phone been jailbroken? If not, which version of the OS does it run? It might be a hardware problem, maybe the battery, but hardware problems are pretty hard to troublesolve without the phone in hand and proper tools. If it's a software problem there might be a fix. Have you tried restoring it? Beware before doing so though, everything on the phone will be erased. So backup everything before you attempt this, you can backup with iCloud on the phone itself, just turn it on and connect the phone and open iTunes "Settings->iCloud->Storage&Backup" Remember to activate Wifi for iCloud to work.
Restoring iPhone to it's factory settings: Install itunes->Connect iPhone->Select your phone when it appears in iTunes->Click the summary tab->Click the "restore" button->After the restore the iPhone should restart.

Switched my iphone 3 on today and all i got was the logo apple cant do anything els with it what the problem


Using the Restore function for your device is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will delete all the data from your device, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All settings are restored to their factory condition.
Whenever you restore your device, Apple highly recommends that you perform a sync prior to restoring to back up any changes since your last sync. If you have movie rentals on the device, see iTunes Store movie rental usage rights in the United States before restoring.
Use the following steps to restore your device:
  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
  4. Select the Summary tab.
  5. Select the Restore option.
  6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
    ht1414_03--back_up_settings-002-en.jpg
  7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
    ht1414_04--restore_dialog-002-en.jpg
  8. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:
    ht1414_05--restored-002-en.jpg
    iPhone only: For the iPhone only, after a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.
    ht1414_06--connect-002-en.png ht1414_07--activated-002-en.png
  9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. Once your device is restored and-in the case of the iPhone-in the process of activating, you should be able to see the following in iTunes:
    ht1414_08--set_up-003-en.png
    Select the backup you want for your device and select the Continue button to complete your device's restoration.
If you do not want to restore from backup, select "Set up as new..." If you want to preserve previous backups that iTunes has made, be sure to back up the appropriate directory before choosing to set up as new.

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?


Hello.

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.

Restore information


I can understand you very well since I use a PDA also and this battery problem is an issue for me too. I assume that your backup file is in your storage card and is a standalone exe file (means you don't need your backup software being installed first to start a recovery process). You can remove your storage card from your PDA first and back it up to a PC to ensure that your only backup file is safe. Next, you can do another hard reset to your PDA and do all the settings steps again. After that, you can try to recover some of your data by starting the recovery process and performing not a full backup, but just the necessary data first. I am recommending this step because you have a PDA that's main storage area is very limited (like mine) and if you are normally using it filled up, backup process can be terminated before it finishes because of the backup file is nearly equal to the total main storage area,  and this causes your device to stop working even after your incomplete recovering process. This is mainly becuase recovering process needs lots of space and when the process is near the end, it can't have enough space on main storage area to continue. So, you can try to recover the necessary data first (Softwares, contacts, appointments, ...), then, if it is successfull, you can open your backup file again and this time you can select the other personal documents that has been left in the first process. (I hope your backup software supports selecting the needed data to recover.)
