Best way to prevent data loss on palm m100, replacing the battery before it drained completely and replacement must be done in 10 seconds. Another way to prevent keep backup on computer side. You need to use same user profile in order to get previously stored PIM data on computer
You must have Palm Desktop installed on your pc. You must have a serial cable from your pc to your handheld. You must have hotsync running on your taskbar. You must download the software to the Palm Desktop and then hotsync your Palm with the pc. You may not be starting the safe hotsync in the start menu before pressing the hotsync icon on your Palm. If it's not that, your pc may not be recognising your Palm device or you may not have your serial cable securely hooked up, or you may be trying to download software that's not compatible with your device. You also have to reset your device after installing most software. Make sure you have enough memory to hold the software.
I have Vista Home Premium and I hotsync my peg-n760c using Palm Desktop. It came with version 4.1, but it was a disaster. The Cd is old and isn't compatible with Vista. So I downloaded an upgrade from Palm.com and I definitely don't use the Jukebox software that came with it either. Go to Palm.com and download PalmDesktop Win62.exe and install it. It should recognize your USB connection and hotsync immediately. Also, use Windows Media Player and change the files to mp3 by using a free program called Switch. Just google Switch and download the basic program. Then load the mp3 files onto your memory stick in Windows Explorer. Then use MSimport to load the memory stick files into your handheld. Good luck! terymo2
The User Guides and Manuals for the m100 are still available on the PalmOne website. If you're interested in downloading free software (like a English or medical dictionaries) check out PalmFreeware.com. Just make sure that the software supports your Palm OS version (Palm OS 3.5).
Remember to change (HotSync, Custom) settings before you perform your sync or else you will get duplicate records as I did. Good luck.

Switching between Outlook and Palm Desktop synchronization
Depending on your device, you might be synchronizing with Outlook using the Palm™ Outlook Conduits, or PocketMirror conduits from Chapura (find out which). Both of these types of conduits are installed and activated when you run the CD-ROM that came with your device.

Switching synchronization: Palm Outlook Conduits
These instructions apply to the Palm Outlook Conduits that are included with handhelds released after late 2003. The Palm Desktop installer determines which conduits are activated during the installation process.
If you want to switch synchronization from Palm Desktop to Outlook, or vice versa, you'll need the original CD-ROM that came with your handheld.
1. Insert the CD-ROM into your computer. A window should open, containing the contents of the CD-ROM.
2. From the Discover Your Handheld screen, select "Install Microsoft Outlook Conduits" or "Change synchronization method" (depending on which device you have)
3. Follow the instructions for switching synchroniztion from or to Palm Desktop or Outlook.
4. See our note about data transfer
Remember: Some applications will continue to synchronize with Palm Desktop. Use Palm Desktop to manage applications such as Photos and VoiceMemo
... if you downloaded the version of Palm Desktop available on the palmOne website you cannot sync with Outlook. The web version does not include the Outlook conduits necessary to sync with Outlook. You must use the CD included with any newer palmOne handheld/smartphone or buy a third-party utility (such as Chapura PocketMirror)
