Dear Beamish,
First set your gadget to factory defaults.... This will cancel your personal settings... But you will be able to get the idea that whether the problem is of software or hardware nature.... If the problem is of software then this will solve the problem, otherwise you must get it serviced.....
Regarding PC software, It may happen if one or more files become corrupted.
Therefore, search the folder in which, software stores the data. If possible make sure that data is still their. Make copy of that folder.... then uninstall your software and gadget's driver.
Then restart the PC. After restarting again install your gadget's driver and software. Now again restart the PC. Now copy the content of folder (means folder which we backed up or made copy before uninstalling the software) to the newly install software's directory.... If the data is present on the PC. Then this will enable you to get your data back....

    Dear Beamish,


    By restoring your gadget to factory defaults you will get exact idea about whether the screen disorientation is due to software or hardware problem. If it is due to software problem then factory default will solve the case.... otherwise get it serviced....

    Newly installed software directory means.........


    "the folder in which your newly installed software will store the data."

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:

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

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

good luck

Lost my Cd to my palm z22. Does any one know were I can download the porgram for my palm. So I can put info on my computer. :)


behoney56:

The information support page for the Palm Z22 has moved around over the past few years. It is now at

http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/na/zire/z22/unlocked/home/page_en.html

As well, I have an entire web page devoted just to maintaining, repairing, and using the Palm Z22, at:

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.htm

As the Palm Z22 ages, there are issues with old and dying batteries, with the touch screen deforming and becoming useless, and various DATA connectivity issues, since the new Windows 64 BIT Operating Systems did not yet exist when the Z22 was diss-continued.

On my web page are links and USER information on the various solutions that they found, as well as a bit of information that I discovered, which is hitherto unknown!

Hope these tid-bits of help get your Palm Z22 up and running properly...

good luck

I forgot the password for mine, how can i get around this to cancel or even change the passwprd?


Hi,
If you have forgotten your password you should be able to use the password hint to figure out what it is. You can try a soft reset to see if that will clear the password but I am pretty sure this won't help. To do a soft reset use the tip of the stylus or something pointed like a paper clip and inset it in the hole on the back of your palm pilot. This will make the unit reset it's self. If this doesn't help then you must preform a Hard rest to continuing using your hand held. You need to make sure that you have all your information backed up on your computer as a hard reset will erase everything on your hand held. Here are the steps to do a hard reset:

1. Press and hold the power button.

2. While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus ( or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your hand held.

3. Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear, and then release the power button.

4. When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held do one of the following:
a) Press UP on the 5 way navigator button on the bottom of your hand held to finish the reset and show the touch screen.
b) Press any other button to do a soft reset.

5. When prompted , tap to align the screen, and then set the language you want to use on your hand held. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar. From there continue to set up your Palm and then do a hot sync. You should be able to reset a password if you want one. Best wishes....Hope this helps.

Hi----- hope this works--- you might need new update software.
  1. Download Palm Software installer (.dmg file)
  2. Ensure you are logged in to your Macintosh as a user with Admin privileges.
  3. Double-click on the PalmSoftware installer file.
  4. Enter your Administrator password when prompted.
  5. Install or renstall Palm Desktop. Note: There is no uninstaller included.
What is this software? This software lets you sync your Palm device with your computer, so your info is backed up and easily editable on your computer.
Keep your information up to date wherever you are. When you sync, any changes you've made to Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos are automatically added to your computer or your Palm device.
Palm Desktop is the desktop personal information manager. HotSync Manager controls synchronization. Both are included in a single download on this page.
If you sync with Microsoft Outlook or Entourage, you still should install this software.

  1. Be sure you are logged in to your Mac with admin privileges. If you're not sure how to dothis, refer to Apple support.
  2. Keep your Mac's admin password in mind. You'll need to enter it during installation.
Download & install:
  1. Download the file and double-click it (PalmDesktopMac421Revd.dmg).
  2. After your Mac mounts the file, a new icon named palmOneSoftware.pkg will appear in the same location. Double-click this item.

  4. When installation is finished, you may drag and drop the palmOneSoftware.pkg item to the Trash, or archive it on your Mac hard drive for future reference.

Two computers


You should be able to install it on both computers, but if you're the one going to be using both, then it will become tedious entering the information into both computers. If you're wanting to make use of one while a family member uses the other, you should be fine; but if your purchase is for a business, you are expected (by law) to purchase the second package, as the software is licensed for an individual.

On the other hand, if you mean a palm-type PC, yes, you can sync your calendar with your palm computer:

System Requirements for PlanPlus for Microsoft Outlook:
· Microsoft Outlook® 2000, 2002 (XP), or 2003
· PC with 400 MHz or higher processor clock speed
· Microsoft Windows® 2000 or XP editions
· 128 MB RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and features)
· 120 MB available hard disk space
· CD-ROM or DVD drive
· Super VGA (800x600 or higher resolution) with 256 colors
· Mouse or compatible pointing device
· Computer speakers for multimedia presentation
· Palm OS 4.0 or higher required for synchronization with Palm OS handhelds
· Windows Mobile 5.0 or higher required for synchronization with Pocket PC/Windows Mobile devices (touch screen)
· Tablet PC device required to utilize some digital ink and pen input features in PowerNotes

the stylus is that little pokey stick that comes with the Palm.  Use it to tap the X on the screen.  It is an alignment program for the touch-screen.
