Question about Palm LifeDrive Handheld

1 Answer

LifeDrive Not Responding

Every time I reset my Palm LifeDrive, whether it be a soft or hard reset, it always ends up stuck on the reset screen, with about 1/20 of the black bar appearing on the bottom of the screen. When attempting a hard reset, the "press up to erase all" etc. works, but when it changes to the loading screen it freezes.

Did a reset...stuck on the "Quick Erase" screen. If I reset again, the hard drive spins a few times, stops and does nothing else...but it never gets off the screen. Do I need to replace the hard drive?

Yes, is the only answer I can offer you as I have the same problem. The best advice I have found is.. replace the hard drive with a new micro drive or flash drive.

Love is... knowing my name is safe in your mouth when I leave the room.

Palm life drive frozen on "palm one "screen

When you see the first screen (the orange one) hold the UP button as the bar moves across the bottom of the screen. Let go right before the screen goes to the silver logo. If it continues and opens Prefs, then you need to delete the program causing it to reboot. If that doesn't work, do a Hard Reset. A Hard Reset will erase everything on your lifedrive, so only do it if you have to. Hold the Power Button while you push the reset button. Continue with the instructions to finish erasing your device.

Lifedrive won't start. Neither will it reset,

Unfortunetly that usually indicates the harddrive has failed on you. Try a power on hard reset. It is the same as the hard reset but the power need to be plugged in as well.

If you look there are several places that will replace the drive with either a new drive of a compact flash card. The card is the way to go as it increases battery life but is about 10x faster acessing stuff.

HI there,

Normal 0 The best thing I can offer for you to do is to go to the free palm chat service they offer. I have used this and it worked good for me. Here is a link to the free chat service. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a Palm Chat. From there click on the link that says Chat Now and follow the online prompts. Best wishes...I hope this will help you.

Here is that link.....

My palm doesn't seem to be charging at all. The

The clicking noise usually indicates a hard drive problem. There are replacements available. You can get a replacement hard drive or a flash card drive. Of the two the flash drive is by far the better choice.

Palm lifedrive wont' boot stuck on palm screen

This sounds like the issue where the LifeDrive is stuck in a loop. You can see how to break the device out of the system loop on the Palm Knowledge Base article (26419) located HERE.

Hope that helps get you up and running again!

My lifedrive when plugged in comes up with the logo (palmone) however the screen will not change. Ive tried a soft reset and a hardreset does anyone have any suggestions. I have used this very little....

Unfortunetly that is typical of the internal microdrive having died on you. If the hard reset doesn nothing then that is most likely your problem.

You can replace the microdrive but if you want to improve your LD you can get it changed to use a compact flash disk such as a SanDisk 4gb card. It will run much faster and for longer. This is a simple thing to replace either but given the choice I'd go with the CF. There are several place that will repair your LD for you if you don't want to fix it yourself. You should end up spendingunder $100

Lifedrive sick

Try a hard reset and if that doesn't work ( the erase program hangs up), then your hard drive is dead and must be replaced.

After you do a hard reset, try naming the palm something other than what the name was before hand and see if that profile works.
