Sync only goes one way -- from palm to computer

Have two Z22 Palm units that I'm trying to sync on the same computer. Used to work, but then I had to go back to a system restore point and, afterwards, my Palm software didn't work and had to be reinstalled (uninstalled, then re-installed). Since then, the hotsync for the calendar only goes one way. If I connect mine, the Palm software on the computer gets my schedule. If I connect my wife's, software gets her schedule and it overwrites mine.

Re: sync only goes one way -- from palm to computer

Before I do that... won't that cause the data that's on my Palm to be erased (if the data on the desktop currently reflects my wife's data)? I'm assuming the answer is "yes", since you mentioned restoring data.

Re: sync only goes one way -- from palm to computer

Check the hot sync manager to set the flow of info from desktop to device during the initial restoration of data to your Palm. Afterwards, once you have all your info restored, you'll want the device(s) and desktop calendar to update each other, so make sure your settings in the sync manager reflect that, otherwise you'll continue to have one schedule overwriting the other.

Hope that helps. Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: recover lost calendar events on a Palm z22

Once you lose the data on the Pal it is gone. What you might be able to do is to do a system restore on your PC to an earlier date to see if it will restore all your calendar data. If it does them do a hot sync again. Best wishes.

How can I transfer the data from Z222 to window7

Hello de nicola:

I have an entire page devoted just to the Palm Z22, listed below.

Many people report issues with trying to connect the Palm Z22 to new 64 BIT Operating systems like Windows 7 and Windows 8, and although somewhat obscure and time-consuming to set up, this can be done. ONE known software company has a 64 BIT driver, which, when used with other software, can get the SYNC functions working again. Another method is to put a VIRTUAL Windows XP on the Windows 64 BIT Systems, and then SYNC using the already working WIndows XP to get the data from files on the "new" 64 Bit Systems, and back...

I also deal with battery problems, touch screen problems, maintenance, repair, and upkeep issues, so that you may find the page of value! It is at:

I hope this gets your Palm Z22 up and running again, and keeps it that way...

good luck

No driver for Z22 compatible with Windows 7

windows 7 is new and not compatible with many software so you may not get to sync your palm Z22 by using windows 7. You need a model that is compatible with windows 7.

Lost sync cable for palm z22 need replacement

Hi topplady:

The SYNC CABLE for the Palm Z22 is just the everyday, ordinary, USB "MIMI" cable that all USB devices like cell phones, MP3 players, etc. used for years. These used to be plentiful in 'dollar' stores, but have been replaced with the "MICRO" plug which is much thinner, so you may have to look around. I find piles of them in "Value" "Thrift" type stores now, since they are falling out of popularity, but they are everywhere if you take the time to look - and, since they are getting obsolete, they are really cheap... You can go online and look for " MINI USB CABLE" on Amazon, eBay, etc. where they are readily available...
I have an entire page devoted to the maintenance, up-keep, repair, and connection of the Palm Z22, so you can check it out for more tips, hints, suggestions, and information...

I installed Palm desktop by access 6.2.2 and now my Z22 sync's with outlook which I don't use? How can I stop this and get my Z22 to talk to my palm diary on my pc which I use?

You can always UN-install the software, and re-install the software that you do use. I have some links on software, and user comments on how to re-arrange things to get data to sync. Since I do not SYNC myself, I can only repeat what others are saying, but, chances are you can use the information to help.
My page on the Z22 is at:
I hope the links help you to get up and running again!

good luck

Recover lost calendar events on a Palm z22

Hi suzbt:
JOY's answer, that you try to do a SYSTEM RESTORE on your Computer to get the data back is a really good one, that I did not think of! All manual instructions, and USER instructions on doing a SYNC with the Palm Z22, REPEAT : 1/ Always have a back up of the hard data 2/ Always check all transferred DATA on a SYNC, "Even if it states 'transfer Successful'", 3/ Even, if necessary, write down the data, ...
There are a few software programs to identify FILE problems on the Z22, listed on my web page:

and ways to recover corrupt data, but these are getting more and more difficult to find and use...

User comments on the SYNC indicate that any SYNC is a risky procedure, and backups and re-checking all data is necessary at all times.

I hope that the information on my web site comes in useful in keeping the Palm Z22 up and running!

good luck

Palm z22 USB won't stay connected

Hi, I also had the same problem exactly the way you described it. What worked for me is putting in the original installation cd that came with the palm. Run the installation and I think the computer will recognize the palm and stay connected. Hope it works.

Can I hot sync z22 palm without the touchscreen?

The data on your old Z22 is very likely very secure, and the touch screen problem is very common - there are a few tricks to get the touch screen working long enough to transfer the data.
I have a web page entirely for maintaining, repairing, and interfacing your Z22 at:

You can try these tricks, or just replace the screen for $9 U.S., since the screen only needs you take the unit apart and flip open a connector lock ...

I would strongly advise getting a solid plastic cover over your new Z22, since this is the key to keeping the screen working...

hope the information is of help to you

good luck

I just bought a palm Z22 PDA. I used the AC charger to charge the Z22 but when I attempted to attach the USB synch cable I noticed that the plug is different from the plug on the AC charger. The USB...

I have concluded that the USB synch cable is not the correct one for my Palm Z22 PDA. There is only one point of attachment on the PDA and it is different from the plug on the USB synch chord. This was the last Palm Z22 PDA in the store so I think that the store clerk rounded up leftover parts and components of previous PDA kits and tried to make a complete set out of it. I am going to return the PDA to the store (Staples) in the next day or two.
Thanks for your offer of help. I will contact you again in the future if I need help.
