Question about Palm TX Handheld

1 Answer

Hot sync does not complete!

When I try to Hot Sync everything starts out fine. Half way through the process, my hand held screen reads "synchronizing tasks" and my computer screen reads "Installing handheld applications". To me it seems as if my palm freezes everytime I try to sync. Initially, I did not have this problem. How long does it usually take to sync? My palm has been connected to my PC for over 20 minutes and the same messages are displayed. I have tried to delete several programs thinking that it might be a memory problem, but that didn't help.

Something similar happened to me due to incorrect periodic entries in the Datebook, try disabling all elements in the Hot Sync, try it, and if it works, then add them one by one until you find the offending one, then focus on clearing that DB.
(Actually i simply stopped synching Datebook since i didn't wanted to loose all the history of appointments i have).

I have a desktop dell runining XP software. I have a tungsten E hand held. I cannot get the contacts on the handheld to appear on the screen of the desktop. I just tried putting a new contact in the desk...

Try right click on the Hot-Sync icon, on the Taskbar and select Custom then select Address book and change the Action to Synchronise the files. You might have to use Windows Explorer to view your contact. I'm not 100% sure about this one but try it anyway.

Garmin ique 3600 hot sync issues

I had the same problem. Obtained no help from Garmin - $200 to repair.

I purchased a $7.00 IRDA (infra red) - USB device; set my Connection to IR - PC and have been able to sync without any problems. However even withupdates I have not been able to get the cradle - PC connection to work. This is not a problem however since I now use the IR connection all the time.

You must touch the screen hot sync logo not the cradle button to start the sync process.

Hot Sync with desktop and laptop computers

it is possible but if I well understood u wanna hot sync with ur laptop calendar and contact from ur Tungsten E, (that is having updated data from ur office computer). you can in fact synchronize verything there with ur laptop, and make ur hand held over write ur whatever is in ur laptop, for this u need to install the PDS and go to the hotsync manager on ur system try, go to custom and and on the list of conduits go to contact and change the action to hh overwrite desktop, (do the same for calendar) DON"T FORGET TO CHECK THE OPTION : MAKE AS DEFAULT. U can of course disable the rest except the system conduit. Never forget to set the conduits u change to set as defaults. Like this, u must have always updated data on ur hand-held, for this, u need to keep synchronizing with ur office computer. good luck,

Hot sync operation cancelled (8001)

Try replacing the cradle or if you can install Palm desktop on another computer and try synchronizing on it. This is usually a sign of a week cradle or COM port on your computer.
