Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld

Palm Tungsten E2

I have completed set up and synchronization of my new E2 and thought I could insert the 512 memory card I was using in the old E2 (battery died). The new E2 doesn't seem to "see" any data on this card. I tried a hard re-set on the old unit but the card was removed before I did this as I feared losing the data. I bought a new device thinking I had protected the data by taking the card out and I could access it in the new unit. What can I do? Thank you.

    How do I do that?

  • kegrieff Jul 19, 2008

    No, the "new" card is not empty. It is the card I was using in the device I just replaced. How do I back up contents of the card onto my pc with a third party program? Once I do that, how do I get the data onto my new E2?

  • kegrieff Jul 19, 2008

    The analyst at Palm.com said if I removed the card from the device BEFORE I attempted the hard re-set, I would not erase data on the card. Therefore, I did remove it prior to hard re-set. So, shouldn't the data still be on the card?

    What's on the card are all my contacts and memo's, but the card was not in the device when I attempted the hard re-set. Therefore, shouldn't the info still be on the card? How do I back up the contents onto my pc using a third party program and then transfer them to my device?

    I have a 512 data card from my old Tungsten E2. I removed it BEFORE I attempted a hard re-set on the old unit. I was told that would save the data on the card. Now I want to reinstall the data on the new E2. How do I backup the data onto my pc using a third party program (??) and then get in back to the new E2?

  • kegrieff Jul 19, 2008

    What would the "right card reader" be? I just chatted with Palm. They said since I have 483.4 MB left on a SD512MB card, all the data is evidently lost.

IS the new card empty?

    Nope, you need to backup the contents to your pc with a 3rd party program, haveing the same storage card alone doesn't restore anything.

  • Ekse Jul 19, 2008

    http://store.handmark.com/p/1202/Right_B...



    as you have not backed up your data before doing the hard reset on the old e2 the contents are gone, and you have no way to restore them, unless you somehow stored them in the storage card?



    what do you have in the storage card? basicly programs need to be reinstalled they don't just start to work if they are on the storage card.

  • Ekse Jul 19, 2008

    The DATA is save on the sdcard but how do you plan to restore it if you don't have a backup program or you haven't done any backups? Your data on the card is safe, but how will you restore it if you didn't do a backup?

  • Ekse Jul 19, 2008

    you can't restore something you didn't backup properly, the files are still stored in the card.

  • Ekse Jul 19, 2008

    The thing is



    You need to perform a FULL BACKUP with a 3rd party BACKUP SOFTWARE, before doing hard reset. You don't even have a backup program?



    so you can't restore the programs without installing them again into the e2 since you didn't make a system backup, you have the files on the card thats half of the job.



    you would need to use the 3rd party backup program to restore the backup you made with it but you haven't done a backup.



    Theres noting to restore.



    You have to install everything again, but your files are still in the storage card. whatever you had in there.

The problem is simply that the Tungsten E2 cannot read SD cards larger than 1 GB. However, there is a solution that will enable it to read larger cards. A driver called PowerSDHC is available from PalmPowerups.com that will enable the E2 to read cards of any size. I'm now running an 8 GB SDHC card on my E2!

As the previous responder said, the Tungsten E2 cannot read cards over 1 GB. However, there is a wonderful solution available at PalmPowerups.com called PowerSDHC. This wonderful little driver will enable the E2 to read cards of any size! At $20.95, it's a bargain. I installed it on my E2 and now I use an 8 GB SDHC chip!

Palm Charging


Synchronize your E2, then work on draining the battery all the way down in order to reduce the effect of battery memory. Memory happens when we repeatedly partially charge a battery. Over time the battery will forget how to keep a full charge, but will remember how to be partially charged. That's usually when users realize there's a problem. The first step is to drain the battery and FULLY charge it at least fully on the battery's indicator, but if you can, let it sit for 24hrs. The second step is to try to use the battery more before charging it and let it charge fully (ie-overnight) before using it when you need to charge it.

Good luck and let me know how you make out.
