Question about Palm IIIx Handheld
Hi there - would love any insight into the following problem.
I've got a IIIx with a screen that barely works. The device can still charge, but sometimes the power button doesn't work either. (Great, I know)
When it was operational, it would automatically sync to my Mac when I docked it. But now, the 3-prong Mac connector (name escapes me) is outdated in favor of USB and Firewire.
I'd very much like to find a way to retreive the data stored on the machine, even though I've tried and failed before. Is there something I haven't tried, or someone who knows better?
Sorry to hear about your trusty little workhorse dying, but all is not lost, meaning your data. You'll just need to get a replacement sync cable that can somehow replace the old RS232 connection. You should be able to use the same cable that connects to the m100 without spending the extra money to buy the old Palm MacPac. Once you've got your data retrieved your new device (I assume you're addicted like the rest of us) should offer you more options. Otherwise you may want to consider getting a USB or Firewire expansion card.
