    I also have a lifedrive that I would like to use on my new lap top that has the dreaded Windows Vista. Is there a way to hotsink it? I tried when I first got the computer a month ago, but couldn't even install the darn Palm desktop. I NEED my lifedrive for work!

    I have since learned about running as administrator and will try that. I need to hotsink updates for my epocrates program.

Yes, you can use it but DO NOT INSTALL "Documents to go". The version of this software is not compatible with Vista and Sync will hang at it.
If you have already installed it, just -> remove programs -> uninstall "Documents to go"
or:
Disable (do nothing option) sync of "Documents to go" using the application, not from HotSync Manager.

I have not used my palm one in a while. I charged it last night, and today it is saying that there is a network error. What does that mean? It also says to check my network settings? I would like to know what steps I need to follow, in order to use this device. Can you please help?
Thank you

Docs and media onto a LifeDrive with Vista


The problem is that the Palm desktop sfotware that works with the LD doesn't work well with vista so you need to do things a bit differently.

I copy files to sdcards if they are say movies or music in otherwords big or lots of files as it is faster. If I want to copy my documents to the ld hardrive simply plug the LD into the usb data cable and then turn on drive mode. Vista will now recognize your ld as just another flash drive or usb drive device. Copy the files to the hardrive or even the sdcard if its in the slot. You can create your own directories in either place so it is easy to know where your files are.

My Lifedrive won't boot up


Seems the LifeDrive Micro Drive is the killer on these Palms. Mine did the same thing and after extensive online research I found that the micro drive can be replaced with a Compact Flash card which is much more reliable. Apparently there are only certain CF cards that work with the LifeDrive though. I have found at least one retailer that sells a compatible CF preloaded with the Lifedrive software. The route I took for repair was to send it out to a guy that advertises his service on eBay. You send in the LifeDrive, he diagnoses it for $5, and can install the CF card with software for $89 (he waives the $5 if you have him fix it). I am looking forward to getting mine back in permanent working order! Here is the link:

Accessing XHTML Web Pages


You'll need a 3rd party WAP browser (note: not WAP PDA. Both PPC and Palm powered device can do this as long as they have the application for it.) The web browser it comes with I don't think it is WAP compatible. Though I have no experience with any of them, I'm sure there are a few out there as shareware/freeware for PalmOS.

Booting from Linux on installed LifeDrive


What system is the Linux disc for, and what system are you trying to use it on? You do realize that there needs to be different builds of Linux for PowerPC processors, Pentium, Palm, etc... and I'm not aware of one for the LifeDrive, although I wouldn't be surprised... So I'm guessing you have a Mac-hardware-compatible Linux disc, and you want to boot the PowerBook from the LifeDrive. Let me first warn you that portable devices are not specifically designed for long-term, frequent, intensive access... many people have killed their iPods by trying to boot Mac OS X from them (although there are some success stories). Still want to try it? Well, the root level is the top level of the hard disk. I don't have a LifeDrive myself, but with drive mode it sounds like it should be very easy to find.... just go to My Computer on the desktop and double-click the icon for the LD's drive. There are some types of discs that can override this on Windows and force something besides the root level to open, but I've never seen this on a Mac. Nonetheless, should the Finder fail you for some reason, open the Terminal and type cd /Volumes/; ls and then it will list the drives mounted on your computer. One of them should be the LifeDrive... I don't know what the exact name of it will be, but then type: cd ./[name of lifedrive]/ [note the dot] and you will then be in the root directory. If you want to see what is currently there, type ls again. Clarification: that's LS, as in "list," not "IS." I just noticed that it's hard to tell with lower-case letters. However, the command-prompt is case-sensitive, and you must enter it in lower-case. I capitalized it in this clarification just to show what letter it is. 11

How do I fix my Outlook Calendar synchronization problem?


Palm tech fixed my problem. It turned out some items in Outlook Calendar were corrupted, thus preventing a synch with LifeDrive. The fix is to export the Calendar items and import them. This process fixes corruption. After doing that I successfully synchronized Calendar with LifeDrive. More specifically. I moved Calendar items to a different folder, thus emptying the main Calendar folder. I exported the Calendar items in the new folder to a CSV (Windows) file. Then, I imported that CSV (Windows) file into the main Calendar folder. Finally,I did a synch and all worked perfectly.
