Question about Palm Zire 21 Handheld

1 Answer

Hot sync I tried to hot sync my Zire 21 to my home computer and it erased the info from my Palm hand held. I have the info backed up on my work computer so I tried to reinstall it there and it erased my work computer. I did not change any settings until after it erased everything. I use Outlook at work and was syncing to the Palm program at home. Thanks.

HI,
I had the same problem with my palm. The first thing I did was to make sure I had the most up to date software on my computer. YOu can get this by going to www.palm.com and cklicking on PDA's and then the name of your palm. From there it will bring up a page that has all the up to date desktop software. If you have the up to date desktop software and you have all your information backed up on your computer then preform a hard reset. This will ERASE everything on your palm. If you need directions on how to do this send me a comment and I will get those directions. If you ahve the manual it should tell in there how to do a HARD reset. The hard reset will restore it back to all the default settings and erase it just as if it were new,. After you get to this point do another Hot Sync. It hould sync for you just fine. Hope this works for you. I had great results doing this.
Best wishes.

With your Palm Zire 21 connected to your pc, go to the link above and run through the Palm HotSync troubleshooting dialog to see if any results come up that will solve your issue.

HotSync issues are unfortunately difficult to pinpoint and often will require a software update or patch to resolve issues.

Good luck with it!

I want to delete a user on my zire31 pda


You should be able to hard reset the palm and erase all data. There should be a rest pin hole on the back, hold it and press the power button. All internal memory will be erased.

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.

Palm Zire to itouch


Those two devices are not compatible to one another. You may get it to work by exporting the Palm desktop data into a CSV file and importing it into the program you use to sync the Itouch with.

Lost data on palm zire 21 hand held


To the best of my knowledge, if you don't have a pc backup, you are out of luck.... Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... Download the Palm Desktop Software and start to use it if you decide to continue using the Zire 21. The Software is free from Palm.
