Palm Zire 31 Synch stopped working

Hi, My palm zire 31 has stopped accepting a synch. On both my laptop, and my home computer, which I have successfully synch'ed 100's of times, sudenly the palm says, "Unable to initiate HotSync operation because the port is in use by another application"...I've tried all the ports on my laptop, and all the ports on my home computer too. I tried the palm pilot reset button.
Ideas??
Thank You!!

Lost contacts on my Palm Zire 31


No, only if you synchronized with another device beforehand. Using Palm Desktop, eg, you could synchronize and get the list back.

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.

Can't synch Outlook Calendar Appointments


Try uninstalling with Windows Uninstall Clean-up tool. XP seems to do a poor job of installing conduits sometimes. I think this might be an issue with the one conduit no being registered correctly in the Windows Registry. You can get this tool here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=290301 Uninstall Palm Desktop. Then shut down the PC. Then start it up again and re-install Palm Desktop. I hope this helps.

Hotsync with two computers


I just posted a similar kind of problem. With my old M105, this worked fine - Outlook on my work computer, Palm Desktop on my home computer. When I upgraded to Zire 31, I saw that message about 2 computers once during the past week, but never again. I was thinking about using the Install CD again on my work computer to see if there is an option for synching between 2 computers. (synching to 2 different computers seems to be the most reliable backup for one bad synch)

Synchronizing with Outlook


If the installer cannot see outlook, then it will not show the option. I think the Zire 31 CD has an option on it it that allows you to switch when you put the CD back into your PC. It should be visible on the autostart screen that pops up when you insert the CD.
