Do you have a backup program and have you used it now and then?

If you don't have a 3rd party backup program over hotsync, your data is gone.

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.

MacMini 10.5.4. How to copy mail.mac address book to Palm desktop


In order to sync a Palm device with other applications, including Outlook on Windows, or Apple's iCal and Address Book on the Mac, users can install Palm conduits, which divert data headed to Palm Desktop to an alternative selection of apps on the computer instead.

I updated the Palm m130 to Z22. I lost all my addresses on the m130 whe installing the Z22. Is there anyway to retrieve the lost file?!


The solution to this problem is.. if the m130 still has all the data, then

you need to perform a custom hotsync to overwrite all files on the computer

  1. Click on the ‘Hotsync Manager’ icon and choose ‘Custom’.
  2. Highlight the ‘Datebook’ conduit and click ‘Change’.
  3. Select ‘Handheld overwrites desktop’ and click ‘OK’.
  4. Repeat these steps for the ‘Address’, ‘Todo’, ‘Memo’ and ‘System’ conduits.
  5. ‘Install’ and ‘Install Service Templates’ should be ‘Enabled’.
  6. Perform a ‘Hotsync’ operation by pressing the button on the Hotsync® Cradle, or Cable.

Now that the files are on your computer you need to sync them into the new palm

Same steps but this time Desktop Overwrites handheld

  1. Click on the ‘Hotsync Manager’ icon and choose ‘Custom’.
  2. Highlight the ‘Datebook’ conduit and click ‘Change’.
  3. Select ‘Desktop overwrites Handheld’ and click ‘OK’.
  4. Repeat these steps for the ‘Address’, ‘Todo’, ‘Memo’ and ‘System’ conduits.
  5. ‘Install’ and ‘Install Service Templates’ should be ‘Enabled’.
  6. Perform a ‘Hotsync’ operation by pressing the button on the Hotsync® Cradle, or Cable.

Treo 755p Getting Stuck During HotSync


If you have another computer you could try installing the software on that to see if the Treo will sync.
This would determine if it's a computer problem or if it's your Treo.

When you unchecked the datebook to sync after uninstall/reinstalling, was it able to sync then?

I have had other palms get hung up to a certain point during the sync, but uninstalled the program or disabled it from syncing like you tried and it usually works.

Data Lost - Palm T 3


  1. BACK UP YOUR PALM DATA! It is normally in C:\Program Files\PalmOne\XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the first six of your Palm's User ID. If it is not there, the location can be found in Palm Desktop (Tools-> Options).
  2. Is the correct Data still present in Palm Desktop? If Yes, you're in great shape, it should sync back to the Palm after a hard-reset.
  3. If not, close Palm Desktop and look in the data directory. Some subdirectories (address, datebook, etc.) should have BAK files. If the BAK files are bigger than the DAT files, delete the DAT files and rename the BAK files to DAT. Restart Palm Desktop. Is the data there now?

If not, I am afraid you've had a learning experience. My Palm is synced to two different machines. One is running RAID-1 (mirrored drives), and both are backed up to tape weekly. Me? Paranoid? Naah...

Most people have to find out about backups the hard way.

Converting plam address book to my Htc pocket pc


method1: The easiest way to do this is to sync your Palm Desktop data with the PIM on your Yahoo account. It's free so if you don't have a Yahoo account sign up and get one just for the transfer. Once your DateBook data is on Yahoo there is a simple to use option to sync Yahoo to Outlook. once all your stuff is in Outlook it will ActiveSync to the PPC

method 2:  install the Outlook and then the Palm sync conduits and sync their datebook, notes, tasks and contacts to Outlook. install Activesync and sync the pocketpc and they get their data. you can also use pocket mirror software for this.
method3: Install ExtendConnect from Extended Systems. Then sync first with the Palm. Then sync with the Pocket PC.

Keyboard data entry


Sounds like a classic problem for a driver/firmware update. get an update here before trying anything else- http://www.palm.com/us/support/downloads/tungstenc/tungstenc_update_30.html If it still doesn't solve it you might need to format it and reinstall everything from scratch. Good luck
