Question about Palm V

7 Answers

I'm trying to install the palm v software into a macbook

I spoke with one of your reps a couple of weeks ago. i have a 1999 palm v i've been using for years with a dell tower. recently i purchased a macbook and was asking how i could transfer this information into the macbook. the rep said to simply install the software in the mac, but when i try there is no installation icon. all i get when i open the disc icon for palm on the the desktop is a window showing me about ten different icons and none of them install.

It depends on the version of your Mac. What version do you have? If you have an older version your going to need Palm 4.1 and you can get that from Palm website. - Let us know how it works.

Even Palm does not support this device anymore, except to provide the manual online. But you can check their community forums and ask if any software is available for the mac.

You're talking about such an old device, support is doubtful. But good luck.

Because the CD that came with your device is an executable file and .exe file wont run on mac. You need to find the mac version of the software for you to run the device through mac.

Installed a year-and-a-half ago, problems so far: thermostat replaced on hot water tank within one month of installation, one pump replaced, leaking plug in the front of boiler with Dunkirk rep never


Its probably time for small claims court and a new company to install good equipment. Have a couple different companies/contractors give an estimate and possibly expert advice/witness you would then be able to use in court so you can get reimbursed from a bad company. Hope it all works out.

Hi! My computer (Macbook pro) doesn't seem to recognize my Nikon Coolscan IV software and I get the following message


You've not said what the message is but I suspect that the software is too old to be used on the macbook if it is running OS X 10.7 (Lion) or if you are running snow leopard, it may be a non-intel version of the software. It may be asking you to instal rosetta which would be on your snow leopard instal disk.

If the Nikon website does not have updated software you could try vuescan which according to this page http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/nikon_coolscan_iv_ed.html does work with the film scanner and you can download a demo version which you can trial before you buy. Hope this helps.

Hi there, I got an Apple MacBook Pro, OS 10.6.7 and recently got problems connecting to my wireless internet at home. I've got no problems at all connecting to other wlans (at work, at friends'...


So you're knowledgeable, good. Do you have the SSID broadcasting or not? Do you have WEP or WPA, etc active? Can you find the network you are trying to connect to under preferences on your MacBook Pro? Does your network show up? Either way, delete it and start over. If you re-set up your network and it still doesn't find it, but the other machines in your house work wirelessly, it is still a configuration issue. Do you have your wireless network as the default network to find? Do you have a help desk that you can call at your workplace? Give me more details and i'll continue to try and assist.

I bought Macbook air 11"


This exact same thing happened to me, the only way I got my laptop to work again was to reinstall the laptop's original operating system software. Follow the instructions on this website:

Cant get online images with my palm tx, is it a java update


Most of the time it is a software update that is needed. Download the software from your installation CD or you can go to www.palm.com and click on support to get the newest version of the software. After that just hotsync it and it should work the way it was designed. If that doesn't work palm has a chat feature on their website to tey out where you can chat directly to a palm rep. Best wishes.

Macbook fans high speed always


Hi, this can come form a lot of things, harware or software related. Software related: The easiest solution would be to backup your data and do a "clean install". hardware related: the easiest solution is to test your hard drive using the disk utility, and repair it if needed. If you have added extra memory, take it out to be sure that they are not the cause.
