Similar problem but with Handspring Visor Pro. I

Similar problem but with Handspring Visor Pro. I can synch, but get an error message that "address book failed to open" and that it will now close. I can't open desktop palm application. Everything else seems to synch. I have an external drive, so I can look there...what am I looking for?

And also, how easy is it to transfer my Pro to an Apple ipod touch, which I am thinking about purchasing since my Dell computer is about 6 years old and my Pro is about 8 years old?

SOURCE: Can I sync an Ipod touch with my Palm Desktop for windows?

I don't believe that the Palm desktop manager is compatible with Ipod. Unless you have your contacts associated with Microsoft Outlook, that should work.

You need version Palm desktop v6.2 (not v4) to run under Vista. If you have the 64 bit version of Vista you will have to use Bluetooth to transfer data, not USB. Enjoy and please rate this post.

Handspring visor pro on Vista


The easiest way to do this is by usb. You will need to download the 6.2 palm desktop/hotsync manager (yes, it says it will not work with your prism... I know.) Then you'll need to download pimlico's palmhotsyncsetup tool, that will allow it to work.
You can read the full instructions and get the appropriate links here:

Can't get device to hotsync


First thought is that the cable has become defective - they do go wrong.

Assuming the visor is fine other than when hotsyncing, I suggest you reinstall the Desktop manager and hotsync manager on your PC or Mac, HAVING BACKED UP ALL FILES of course.

Sometimes the managers get corrupted and cause problems. Try that first, then check cable and finally a hard reset, assuming you have hotsynced recently and so won't lose loads of information.

Old VISOR


Congratulations on your 'first generation' Handspring Visor purchase. While perhaps 'old technology' in the techno world, I am still using mine today. To answer your question, your Visor is simply attempting to 'synch' with your desktop files (to ensure you have the correct data in both places. Your error stems from the fact that the unit is 'searching' for your desktop files to perform that handshake. Like an unanswered telephone; your Visor 'hangs up.' You will need to install the software on your PC. Yes, there is still software out there. ;-)

Can i sync a handspring?


Recent version's of the HOTSYNC app have a provision for IR transfers (older versions may not though). So you should check the HOTSYNC app on the Visor and see if it already has IR transfer abilities. If it does: Use the downarrow to specify the IR transfer on the Visor. Setup HOTSYNC on the computer to accept IR transfers. Line up the ports and tap the HOTSYNC button on the Visor's display. If it doesn't: You may be outta luck. Downloading an updated version of the HOTSYNC app (or some other utility) won't help because you'll need to Sync in order to get the app on the Visor.
