Question about Palm TX Handheld

TX in a crash, reboot, crash cycle since I deleted contacts file

I tried to swap out my contacts file on my TX with the file from my T3. Same name, must be same file, right? No. TX is now in a constant reboot, crash, reboot mode. W/o breaking it apart and taking the battery out of it, is there any way to replace the TX contacts file (which I deleted) with a new one? I used FileX to do this big mistake.

I'm hoping someone can tell me how to reboot the TX and not have it load the contacts module - is that possible? If Palm can fix it, should I send it to them?

Hot Sync deleted the entire calendar on both the handheld and the desktop. Contacts are still intact.


Hi Tracy,

Palm creates a backup file of your data so you can restore that file as long as you have not tried to sync your calendar again (that would create another backup file that would be blank.

Here is the link to a forum post that explains how to replace the data file with the backup:

Using the desktop, is there anyway to move(either to the memory card or the PC) or delete files on a Palm TX. I apparently used to much of the devices memory and now I can't ge to the home screen(it...


If you're able to hotsync, then yes. In the desktop, delete notes or other items (Does the TX have voice memos? Those would be a quick way to free up a lot of space!)
Perform a hotsync, and your Palm should then have some free memory.

If you're not able to hotsync, then nothing you do in the Desktop will have any effect on the Palm.

But, I'm skeptical that this is the real problem. It sounds more like memory corruption, and a hard reset is going to be the real fix.

Need to move contacts in Palm Desktop to new user name


On your Palm Desktop, under username PalmUser40, select the category view of 'All'.  Then press Control + A to select all contacts. Then press Control + C to copy them all.
Then change the username on the upper right to 'misty'.  Then go to contacts, under category 'All', and then Control + P to paste all contacts. 
This will most likely not keep all the category names, but all your contacts will be copied in.
Then hotsync to sync to your Palm TX.

My TX crashes every time I try to hot sync


You could delete that app if you want, however I would go into hotsync config and sync only one section at a time, such as Notes, but not contacts or calendar (or anything else). If it works then add a section, such as contacts. Keep adding sections until it malfunctions. Pimlico software makes a product dbfixit ($) that can fix database (blob errors). You can download and install it, and it will report on (but not fix) any errors it finds.

Onscreen status bar


Check the files on the Palm. If you see these two files (or either of them)
AppSlipRotate.prc and StatusBarLib.prc
delete the files and do another Hotsync.

They shouldn't be there - they were needed for the T3, so going from a Zire to a TX shouldn't bring them in - but possibly they were on the Palm already or something.

Palm Tx crashes constantly when I do search on Contact


You should restore your Palm software.

Have you docked it recently?

Swaping from 'c drive' to 'd drive'?


Hello,

Print this off first, as you'll have to reboot a couple of times.

Most of your space is taken up by three things.
1.) Your Swap File
2.) The System Restore Files
3.) My Documents Folder

First, Right Click My Computer, select Propertis, choose the System Restore Tab, move the slider to the left so that the current number is reduced by half. You'll be prompted to reboot as you exit out of My Computer

Go ahead and reboot.

Next is your swap file.
Right Click My Computer, select Properties, choose the Advanced Tab, click on the Performance Button, in the Virtual Memory section click on the Change Button. You want to create a Swap File on D, this should be twice the size of your Ram Modules installed. You'll need to make this size on D the same for minimum and maximum (that makes it a permanent swap file). You ALSO need to reduce the size of the swap file on C but it has to be at least 16MB for minimum and maximum.

Now, create a folder on D: called My Documents
Copy all contents of your current My Documents on C: over to the new one on D:
Once you have done this reboot and make certain your files are on D: alright
Now, right click My Documents and type in the text box D:\My Documents

And, reboot

Right click the My Documents folder on your desktop and verify it is now pointing to the D drive.

If it is pointing to the new folder you may delete the My Documents files on c:
You'll find it at C:\Documents and Settings\[your login name]\My Documents. Delete the contents but not the folder.

Now its time to defrag C: as you have all this extra free space.

Best Regards,
Worldvet

Errors sync with Outlook 2003 and Tungsten T3


I did search through the forums before posting and the only "solution" I found was to buy Chapura PocketMirror for $30 which I refuse to do. I should be able to sync this palm with Office without having to spend even more money.
