Question about Palm Zire 31 Handheld

1 Answer


The Zire 31:
I was moving around some of my appointments and the Zire became frozen in place and stopped responding to my stylus or the buttons;

then after a while [few hours, I think] it went blank [probably because it was on and the battery wore down];

then I recharged it and when the display became available it had lost all my appointments, etc., and gave me messages as if it was new - such as load cd rom and connect to other computer, etc., etc.

If I try to hot sync do I risk losing all my back upped data on my desk top?

Should I just replace this possibly unreliable unit with a new one?

If I replace, will it be hard to replace it with a new similar unit that will allow me to easily hotsync my backed upped data onto the new unit?

I had exactly the same problem. I Hot Synched it with my computer (Ignore instructions for load cd) and everything returned as normal. Since this episode, I've learnt to hot synch more often than I was doing.

Lost contacts on my Palm Zire 31

No, only if you synchronized with another device beforehand. Using Palm Desktop, eg, you could synchronize and get the list back.

New computer running Vista won't recognize Zire 31-no driver?

Have you installed PalmDesktop to your new computer yet?

There is no Windows driver for the Zire 31, but you will need Palm Desktop before you can sync.

I still have a Zire 31 in a box in the garage, and I'm happy to dig things off of the CD if you need anything, just use "add comment" in the top right corner there.

If you want to reset the password for your palm, go into prefs, then security.

In there, you want to try to get the unassign/lost password to come up.

Click on the -Assigned- and look for lost password/unassign.
If it doesn't appear there initially, try to enter the incorrect password several times.

A window should pop up asking if you want to reset/unassign the password.

Can't synch Outlook Calendar Appointments

Try uninstalling with Windows Uninstall Clean-up tool. XP seems to do a poor job of installing conduits sometimes. I think this might be an issue with the one conduit no being registered correctly in the Windows Registry. You can get this tool here: Uninstall Palm Desktop. Then shut down the PC. Then start it up again and re-install Palm Desktop. I hope this helps.
