Hi yes the plug into the cradle if this is fine then the firmware could have become corrupt due to virus or some data getting change this can happen.
The other thing you can try is remove all the software off the computer then plug the usb in and see if your computer tells you in a pop up box that new device has been found.
If it says this then the chances are its software of firmware problem ok.
If your computer dont give you pop up box telling you new device connected then the try another usb port to rule out the usb port being the problem or try a different device in the usb port to make sure its working fine.
If your computer dont pick the palm up then the problem is more likely to be hardware related like port on palm damaged or even internal parts failing inside the palm.
So just try plug it into usb port and see if your computer picks it up look under my computer and see if its listed their then let me know ok

All palm information has vanished.


Your battery may have 'died' or not been recharged in the cradle. Make sure the light on the cradle is on (green) when the Palm is correctly seated. If not, follow the cable from the cradle to the serial port at the back of the computer. The other wire entering that connector comes from the power pack - check that the power pack is plugged in to the power supply and is switched on. If he green light still isn't illuminating then the power pack is suspect and may need replacing.
After it has been in the cradle with the green light on for a couple of hours, do a hotsync. This should restore some of the data. If you get this far, then you will need to follow the instructions in the manual to restore your programs. If the battery is dead then I think it is unlikely you will get another since Palm no longer services the Vx

If I did not charge my palm m515 will it still work? I just got a Palm m515 and I did not charge it for 24 hours before syncing it to the computer. It works fine on the cradle, but it will not keep a...


the m515 uses a Lithium battery .. the modern version of those batteries have a built in safety feature .. once its first activated then it monitors its own voltage .. if the voltage is ever allowed to go below a certain value then it will refuse to accept a charge ... when it tells you that the battery is dead its actually well above that critical voltage .. but if you let it sit for a long time then self discharge can bring it below the critical value .. when the battery is in that forbiden region then there is a chance that it will grow copper links through its insulator .. then when you try to charge it it could get very hot .. even explode .. so thats why the safety feature .. there are ways to jump start the battery and some people do that .. but you can see there is some risk .. the battery in that palm is not hard to change and they are not expensive but you need a very small torques driver to get the case apart .. i just took my 515 to the hardware and had them match it up with the proper tool .. there are kits available also that have a new battery and the proper tools to take the m515 apart .. of course they cost more..

make sure you have the external charger hooked up to the cradle .. it wont charge from the USB port voltage as i recall on this model..

Palm LifeDrive not charging


I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.

I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.

Palm pilot not syncing while in cradle


You can try cleaning the contacts on both the palm and the cradle. For the Palm itself you can try a small pencil eraser.
For the cradle a little isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab works well.
Do examine the palm socket closely, sometimes the socket is damaged and may recess into the unit so it cannot seat properly

Static electric discharge - IBM WorkPad c500, c505 (8602-60x / 70x) 2003-08-04


Palm Inc., the manufacturer of the IBM WorkPad, has recently informed IBM that a limited number of IBM WorkPad c500 and c505 models may be unable to use the HotSync function if a static electric discharge (ESD) takes place when the WorkPad is placed in the cradle. Palm Inc. has designed a new cradle for this condition. It has the Palm Inc. logo on it, but also works with these WorkPad models. Palm Inc. has a Web site that provides more information on this issue and also contains the Palm Cradle Exchange Program, which allows owners of eligible models to receive a new cradle. To determine if your WorkPad is eligible and to place an order for a replacement cradle, please visit the Palm Inc. Web site. NOTE: If you are in the Asia Pacific region, please contact the Palm Customer Information Centre in your country for information on how to recieve your replacement cradle. Links to this support information can be found at http://www.palm.com/asia/support/contact/asiapacificsupport.html NOTE: When ordering a replacement cradle from Palm, the entire IBM WorkPad serial number (16 digits) must be entered. The format is 1S8602MMMxxxxxxx (Where MMM is the 3 digit model number and xxxxxxx is the unique serial number).
