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

Posted by on

  • markdgls Jul 12, 2008

    Actually, you were wrong and right. 
    Go into Export in the Address Book, not email. Then import into Palm Addresses
    That does not work for iCal(endar), iTunes, or iPhoto. There should be some commonality but I haven't found it. Do you have an answer?

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.

Sir,

The Easy Way. The best way to do achieve this goal is to throw down $10 and buy Outlook2Mac from Little Machines. You can buy it right off their website. Not only will it transfer your contacts, but also any of your old email and calendar events you specify. You run the program on your PC and it holds your hand while creating files you will transfer your new Mac. One important note: Outlook2Mac is only for Outlook, not the free Outlook Express program that comes with Windows.

Because it translates your Outlook files into industry standard files, you can also import not only to Mail and Address Book, but also to Entourage if you are using that instead of Mail. So the quick and easy way is to:

  1. Purchase Outlook2Mac and load it on your PC.
  2. Run it to create a folder of files called My_Outlook_Files.
  3. Copy those files to your new Mac.
  4. Import the files into Address Book.

or try this....

Add (import) the addresses into Address Book
  1. Open the Address Book application.
  2. Choose Import from the File menu.
  3. Navigate to the file that you exported from your previous application and select it from the list of files. Tip: if you cannot select the file, the Open button will not pulsate. This may indicate that the file is not in a format that Address Book can read.
  4. Click Open.
Your addresses (contacts) are now available for use in Address Book and all Mac OS X applications that work with Address Book.

You'll want to go into the email program and "export" it as a file, then transfer it your palm and "import" it with the palms email program. this feature should be in the File menu on each of these.

Palm one address database in old mdb extension how to convert to .dat extension


I am assuming you are using windows and not MAC? Since you have stated you are using MS access file format, it should be PD 6.2. There is no way to convert the file format that I am aware of.


You will need to "clean" uninstall PD 6.2 and install PD 4.1.4e.

Here is the link to PD 4.1.4e

After you install 4.1.4e, create the same username you had on the previous install of PD, close PD, navigate to c-program files-palm and find the username folder. Paste the address.dat file you have into the address folder in the username folder. Open PD and see if the data is there.


Create a new folder on your PC somewhere that is convenient. Name it something like Palm Desktop Data. (If you need help on the export the manual details are here)


Make sure you select all for the range in the export window.

With the data saved in the folder you created, make a copy of that folder and save to a flash drive, cd-rw or external hard drive.

Anytime you make a change in Palm Desktop, export the data that was changed to that folder and save again to the external media.

With this process you can always import the data back into Palm Desktop anytime you have a problem with the data in Palm Desktop or if your computer/hard drive/device crashes.


I hope that helps and I have answered everything.

Migrate Palm address book to MacBook


This is a general answer to head you in the right direction, I hope. Reply back if you need more detail.

If you are syncing with Windows Palm Desktop software, you can (most likely) export contacts, calendar and memo items to a CSV file.

CSV files are data standards. They're simply text files with a comma-delimiter that designates where fields end. This makes them cross-platform compatible.

Once you export to CSV files, get them on your mac (email them to yourself, put them on a flash drive etc) and then import them into iCal, Address book etc.

I have a TungstemE2. I cannot find my addresses. I am on an apple MACBOOKPRO. My hand held works, but the computer file doesn't respond. Actually it did for a minute in very funny type and unsorted by...


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.
System Requirements Palm devices
  • Tungsten C, E, T3, T2, T, W
  • Zire 31, 21, original Zire
  • Palm i705, m500 series, m100 series
  • Palm VII series, V series, III series, Pilot series
  • Zire 72, 71 (only if you have Mac OS 9)
Mac versions
  • Mac OS X (version 10.1.2 or higher)
  • Mac OS 9 (version 9.2.2 and higher)
Computer
  • 25 MB free hard disk space
  • One available USB port for synchronization
PowerPC and Intel Core Duo Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager software works with both of these processors. We have found no significant new issues using our software with the Intel Core Duo processors found in Macs such as the MacBook Pro.
How To Install Before you begin:
  1. Be sure you are logged in to your Mac with admin privileges. If you're not sure how to dothis, refer to Apple support.
  2. Keep your Mac's admin password in mind. You'll need to enter it during installation.
Download & install:
  1. Download the file and double-click it (PalmDesktopMac421Revd.dmg).
  2. After your Mac mounts the file, a new icon named palmOneSoftware.pkg will appear in the same location. Double-click this item.
  3. The Palm Desktop installer wizard will begin. Follow the onscreen instructions to install Palm Desktop on your Mac.
  4. When installation is finished, you may drag and drop the palmOneSoftware.pkg item to the Trash, or archive it on your Mac hard drive for future reference.

Good evening....i think i left my palm "on" & not charged last night. i opened it this afternoon & it was a white screen that said RESET. i tried to turn on or off & pressed restart...


Hi, from the sounds of your situation, im sorry to tell you that your address book is gone. If you have hotsync with your desktop before, you may be able to retrieve a copy of your address book from your last sync. Otherwise there are companies available to recover data from pdas but their services are very expensive.

Address Book Not Synching


If addressbook is presently syncing to Contacts in Outlook, then you will need to reinstall the desktop to alter the conduits. The reinstall should overlay the present version. Just select to alter conduits when requested.

How do I copy address book and calendar from Tungsten E to Outlook?


In order to synchronize with Outlook you need to setup the replication to be with Outlook instead of Palm Desktop. On you cd there should be a third party piece of software (Chapura). Install the required software and follow the instructions.

Can i use Outlook Express


I've checked the knowledge library and i have seen this article regarding your query. You are limited to Mail synchronization for Outlook Express. A third-party conduit is required to synchronize your Outlook Express Address book also. A conduit is supplied free with the Mac version of Outlook Express. We are not aware of any available conduit for the Windows Address Book of Outlook Express Think of it in terms of databases: Microsoft Outlook contains email, calendar, contact, to do and notes databases that are analogous to the similar databases on your handheld. Microsoft Outlook Express contains only email and contact databases.

Synch question


If you have PocketMirror from Chapura (included with certain Palm handhelds), you can choose to install conduits that synchronize MS Outlook with the handheld applications Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and Memo Pad. You can choose to synchronize these applications with either Palm Desktop or Microsoft Outlook, but not both. If you want to synchronize with Microsoft Outlook, DO NOT install Palm Desktop from the Web. Instead, run the Palm Desktop installer from the CD that came with your handheld and select the option "Synchronize with Microsoft Outlook" when the choice appears. Visit www.PocketMirror.com for more information about Chapura(R) PocketMirror.
