Palm Z22 won't sync, USB Device Not Recognized

My Palm Z22 suddenly stopped syncing a few days ago, I keep getting ''USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED''. I went to Palm's Support Forum & was told to uninstall the software (V4.1.4E), clean my registry, reboot, reinstall the software, do a soft reset on the Z22, and try to sync it again. I have done all of that several times over but still cannot sync my device. There is NO driver for this device in Device Manager. I don't have the original software on CD, so I had to download it from Palm's website. All data on the Z22 is current & intact. Running Win XP Home SP3.

I'm getting desperate because the battery will die soon & when that happens, I'll lose all my data! SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!
Thanks in advance

The Z22 is very well designed to PROTECT your stored data - do NOT do a RESET, since this has nothing to do with your problem! It sounds like your USB cable is damaged- a very common problem, usually one of the 4 or 5 wires near one end of the cable or the other, breaks inside the plastic covering, and you loose connectivity. The "OLD" Style USB end that plugs into the Z22 is getting difficult to find, since it has been replaced with the smaller "MICRO" version, available everywhere (As of 2014 ! ) It is available online very inexpensively.
I have a full page of information on the Z22, and how to repair, take-apart, maintain, and connect it. It is at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
I hope that this information helps you to get your
Z22 up and running again.

good luck

Your problem might be a simple one. Hopefully so:

Run a business card around the edges of the screen between the screen and the plastic housing to see if there is any trapped dirt or other debri. If there is, it will hold down that point of the screen and prevent any further input. Be sure to remove anything you find.

Also, sometimes the screen protectors themselves will shift just enough to cause the same issue. Be sure it is not wedged tightly between the screen and case.

I hope this is it and helps!

Just had to do a hard reset myself and it's not straight forward! While holding down the power button, BRIEFLY press the reset button on the back of the palm. DO NOT RELEASE the POWER button until you see the GRAY screen with the Palm logo (not the first screen with the palm logo). That should start the hard reset for you.

SOURCE: how to do a hard reset on a palm z22?

Hi here are the steps but ensure to backup data before you make a hard reset
Press and hold the power button
While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your handheld.
Wait for the Palm Powered™logo to appear, and then release the power button.
When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your handheld, do one of the following:• Press Up on the 5-way navigator to finish the reset and show the touchscreen.• Press any other button to do a soft reset.
When prompted, tap to align the screen, and then select the language you want to use on your handheld. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar.
When the Welcome screenappears, the hard reset iscomplete
Hope this helps and do let me know

It absolutely won't, you don't have to worry. I've done it several times, and I know I was really nervous at first, but it's fine.

Lost sync cable for palm z22 need replacement


Hi topplady:

The SYNC CABLE for the Palm Z22 is just the everyday, ordinary, USB "MIMI" cable that all USB devices like cell phones, MP3 players, etc. used for years. These used to be plentiful in 'dollar' stores, but have been replaced with the "MICRO" plug which is much thinner, so you may have to look around. I find piles of them in "Value" "Thrift" type stores now, since they are falling out of popularity, but they are everywhere if you take the time to look - and, since they are getting obsolete, they are really cheap... You can go online and look for " MINI USB CABLE" on Amazon, eBay, etc. where they are readily available...
I have an entire page devoted to the maintenance, up-keep, repair, and connection of the Palm Z22, so you can check it out for more tips, hints, suggestions, and information...

Recover lost calendar events on a Palm z22


Hi suzbt:
JOY's answer, that you try to do a SYSTEM RESTORE on your Computer to get the data back is a really good one, that I did not think of! All manual instructions, and USER instructions on doing a SYNC with the Palm Z22, REPEAT : 1/ Always have a back up of the hard data 2/ Always check all transferred DATA on a SYNC, "Even if it states 'transfer Successful'", 3/ Even, if necessary, write down the data, ...
There are a few software programs to identify FILE problems on the Z22, listed on my web page:

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

and ways to recover corrupt data, but these are getting more and more difficult to find and use...

User comments on the SYNC indicate that any SYNC is a risky procedure, and backups and re-checking all data is necessary at all times.

I hope that the information on my web site comes in useful in keeping the Palm Z22 up and running!

good luck

Palm z22 USB won't stay connected


Hi, I also had the same problem exactly the way you described it. What worked for me is putting in the original installation cd that came with the palm. Run the installation and I think the computer will recognize the palm and stay connected. Hope it works.

Can I hot sync z22 palm without the touchscreen?


The data on your old Z22 is very likely very secure, and the touch screen problem is very common - there are a few tricks to get the touch screen working long enough to transfer the data.
I have a web page entirely for maintaining, repairing, and interfacing your Z22 at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

You can try these tricks, or just replace the screen for $9 U.S., since the screen only needs you take the unit apart and flip open a connector lock ...

I would strongly advise getting a solid plastic cover over your new Z22, since this is the key to keeping the screen working...

hope the information is of help to you

good luck

I have concluded that the USB synch cable is not the correct one for my Palm Z22 PDA. There is only one point of attachment on the PDA and it is different from the plug on the USB synch chord. This was the last Palm Z22 PDA in the store so I think that the store clerk rounded up leftover parts and components of previous PDA kits and tried to make a complete set out of it. I am going to return the PDA to the store (Staples) in the next day or two.
Thanks for your offer of help. I will contact you again in the future if I need help.

Palm z22 usb cable connection problem


I have the same problem, but with TWO z22s. Both are about a week old, and both "talked" seamlessly to the computer. Suddenly neither does. Do not see anything wrong with USB port or cable. Uninstalled all PALM OS from desktop and reinstalled. Still no link.
