Palm crashes with message "installer not compatible with my device" when I do magnifying glass icon search on Contacts

I do dock my Palm TX regularly to synchronize my Palm with the Palm desktop.  When you say I need to restore my Palm software do you mean the Palm OS Garnet operaing software or the applications Software?

You should reinstall Palm OS and everything else after that.

    I just want to verify the GPS software. Is it Garnet or Garmin?

    Sorry. This isn't the standard operating system for Palm is it?

    Sorry for the confusion but I have never heard of Garnett creating an operting system for Palm. Has the operating systems been modified for some special use?



    I know that can be done.

Have a palm tx ,When calendar is chosen,the handheld crashes.


You probably need hard reset because there is most likely a corrupted program that is messing it up. I've gone through over ten different times where I had to hard reset. Get used to it.

My Palm TX is crashing with increasing frequency. Sometimes one push of the reset button will get it back, but mroe often it requires several pokes with waits in between. It crashes when I 1) start it up...


I would check for Application compatibility.
there might be a conflict issue with your Palm TX and some software in it. there is a site for you to check for compatibility to see if there is a risk or if they are "Approved" for use in the Palm TX

http://www.palmfocus.com/txsoftware.php

I hope this helps you out in figuring out whats going on with it.

My TX crashes every time I try to hot sync


You could delete that app if you want, however I would go into hotsync config and sync only one section at a time, such as Notes, but not contacts or calendar (or anything else). If it works then add a section, such as contacts. Keep adding sections until it malfunctions. Pimlico software makes a product dbfixit ($) that can fix database (blob errors). You can download and install it, and it will report on (but not fix) any errors it finds.

Converting from Palm Pilot TX to iTunes


There is probably a compatibility issue between the TX, Pocket Copy, and Iphone. TX is pretty picky about what can be used to transfter information. They only recommend Outlook and the one that is included on the TX CD.

TX and IPhones are different systems as well. You could try to get the files exported from the TX into a CSV and see if you can import the files into Iphone that way, if it will import them.

Good luck on that one.

Software download to handheld


You must have Palm Desktop installed on your pc. You must have a serial cable from your pc to your handheld. You must have hotsync running on your taskbar. You must download the software to the Palm Desktop and then hotsync your Palm with the pc. You may not be starting the safe hotsync in the start menu before pressing the hotsync icon on your Palm. If it's not that, your pc may not be recognising your Palm device or you may not have your serial cable securely hooked up, or you may be trying to download software that's not compatible with your device. You also have to reset your device after installing most software. Make sure you have enough memory to hold the software.
