Question about Palm Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have Palm (pilot) software installed on my computer hard drive. Included in it are all the Palm back up files with my addresses, dates, etc. However, I accidently removed the Palm icon from my desk top. This is the icon that when I would open it, I'd have access to the readable data ie addresses. The problem: I know all the Palm data is stored on my hard drive, but without the icon on the desk top, I can't seem to access any of the readable data. Question: how do I recover the Palm icon/application on my desktop so that I can access my Palm data? Does this make sense?

    no luck yet



    it's not in my recycle bin, nor can I find the short cuts icon in the program folder...?

  • ogradygreene Apr 18, 2009

    Before I received the second comment/advise, I did go to the Palm website and downloaded some software, which did the trick.

    The received comment/advise afirmed I'd done the next obvious thing to do!
    Thank you!

Toshiba backup software


im assuming you want to back up your laptop

Determine how much space you'll need to back up your Toshiba laptop's hard drive.

If you are intending to back up your entire hard drive, or have a lot of video and music files you want to save, you'll likely need an external hard drive.


On the other hand, if you only want to back up your most important documents, a USB drive should suffice.

Separate your video, music, pictures, games and documents into separate folders.


Right-click each folder and then click "Properties." Do this for your C: drive, too.

Locate the "Size" or "Capacity" section on the "General" tab.


The number to the right indicates how large the folder is, with all the files included.

This information should give you an idea of what kind of secondary storage system you'll require. If you're looking at over 100GB of storage space needed, you'll probably want an external hard drive.


Purchase an appropriate drive that includes backup utilities.

Some external drives and USB drives come with backup software.


Once you install and configure the software, all you have to do is press a button--either on the drive itself or on your computer's desktop or taskbar--to start the backup process.


Schedule your drive's utility software to back up your Toshiba laptop files once a month.

Your USB or external drive should be plugged into the laptop on the scheduled backup dates.


Store your most important files on an online storage facility, such as Mozy, DropBox or Toshiba Online Backup.

In case anything causes damage to both your laptop hard drive and your spare drive, you will still be able to access the files online.

Palm one address database in old mdb extension how to convert to .dat extension


I am assuming you are using windows and not MAC? Since you have stated you are using MS access file format, it should be PD 6.2. There is no way to convert the file format that I am aware of.


You will need to "clean" uninstall PD 6.2 and install PD 4.1.4e.

Here is the link to PD 4.1.4e

After you install 4.1.4e, create the same username you had on the previous install of PD, close PD, navigate to c-program files-palm and find the username folder. Paste the address.dat file you have into the address folder in the username folder. Open PD and see if the data is there.


Create a new folder on your PC somewhere that is convenient. Name it something like Palm Desktop Data. (If you need help on the export the manual details are here)


Make sure you select all for the range in the export window.

With the data saved in the folder you created, make a copy of that folder and save to a flash drive, cd-rw or external hard drive.

Anytime you make a change in Palm Desktop, export the data that was changed to that folder and save again to the external media.

With this process you can always import the data back into Palm Desktop anytime you have a problem with the data in Palm Desktop or if your computer/hard drive/device crashes.


I hope that helps and I have answered everything.

HI,
I had the same problem with my palm. The first thing I did was to make sure I had the most up to date software on my computer. YOu can get this by going to www.palm.com and cklicking on PDA's and then the name of your palm. From there it will bring up a page that has all the up to date desktop software. If you have the up to date desktop software and you have all your information backed up on your computer then preform a hard reset. This will ERASE everything on your palm. If you need directions on how to do this send me a comment and I will get those directions. If you ahve the manual it should tell in there how to do a HARD reset. The hard reset will restore it back to all the default settings and erase it just as if it were new,. After you get to this point do another Hot Sync. It hould sync for you just fine. Hope this works for you. I had great results doing this.
Best wishes.

Are you syncing the new device to the same username in Palm Desktop as an older device?
If you are, this will cause problems on the new device. When you sync the device, it saves the device settings, 3rd party apps, preferences, etc. in the backup folder in the username folder on the PC. When

you sync the new device it copies the contents of the backup folder for the old device to the new device. This will cause corruption in the settings for the new device thus causing erratic behavior of the new device.

Looks like you may need to hard reset your device and rename your backup folder

Go to http://www.palm.com/cgi-bin/cso_kbURL.cgi?ID=887 and follow the directions to do a hard reset. Next before you hotsync your data back over you will need to rename your backup folder, to do that go here;

XP
C:\program files\palm or palm one\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old


Vista
Start-->documents\Palm OS Desktop\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old

Then hotsync to your current hotsync name and all your contacts, calendar,
tasks, and memos will come back over.

Show file extensions for XP or Vista

XP
If you can not view file extensions on your PC I would like you to open a
folder go to Tools-->Folder Options--> View (tab) and under show hidden
files and folders uncheck hide file extensions for known file types.

Vista
Open control Panel go to Folder Options--> View (tab) and under show hidden
files and folders uncheck hide file extensions for known file types.

Hi----- hope this works--- you might need new update software.
  1. Download Palm Software installer (.dmg file)
  2. Ensure you are logged in to your Macintosh as a user with Admin privileges.
  3. Double-click on the PalmSoftware installer file.
  4. Enter your Administrator password when prompted.
  5. Install or renstall Palm Desktop. Note: There is no uninstaller included.
What is this software? This software lets you sync your Palm device with your computer, so your info is backed up and easily editable on your computer.
Keep your information up to date wherever you are. When you sync, any changes you've made to Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos are automatically added to your computer or your Palm device.
Palm Desktop is the desktop personal information manager. HotSync Manager controls synchronization. Both are included in a single download on this page.
If you sync with Microsoft Outlook or Entourage, you still should install this software.
System Requirements Palm devices
  • Tungsten C, E, T3, T2, T, W
  • Zire 31, 21, original Zire
  • Palm i705, m500 series, m100 series
  • Palm VII series, V series, III series, Pilot series
  • Zire 72, 71 (only if you have Mac OS 9)
Mac versions
  • Mac OS X (version 10.1.2 or higher)
  • Mac OS 9 (version 9.2.2 and higher)
Computer
  • 25 MB free hard disk space
  • One available USB port for synchronization
PowerPC and Intel Core Duo Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager software works with both of these processors. We have found no significant new issues using our software with the Intel Core Duo processors found in Macs such as the MacBook Pro.
How To Install Before you begin:
  1. Be sure you are logged in to your Mac with admin privileges. If you're not sure how to dothis, refer to Apple support.
  2. Keep your Mac's admin password in mind. You'll need to enter it during installation.
Download & install:
  1. Download the file and double-click it (PalmDesktopMac421Revd.dmg).
  2. After your Mac mounts the file, a new icon named palmOneSoftware.pkg will appear in the same location. Double-click this item.
  3. The Palm Desktop installer wizard will begin. Follow the onscreen instructions to install Palm Desktop on your Mac.
  4. When installation is finished, you may drag and drop the palmOneSoftware.pkg item to the Trash, or archive it on your Mac hard drive for future reference.
