Question about Palm Handspring Visor Platinum Handheld
I am unable to hot synch at all. I have a VISOR (2000 model). I have Windows XP Profession. I was able to hot synch yesterday but not today. I did update all software - Palm Desktop to ver 4.0.1, Pocket Mirror to ver 3.1.7, and Hot Synch Manager to ver. 4.0.1. Can someone help me!

Copied from the chepura site: These abbreviations indicate a certain type of synchronization. 1. "Forced Recovery Sync" or "–RS" indicates a Recovery Synchronization. This will occur in the following instances: * It is the very first synchronization. * There was an error during the previous synchronization. * The "Category/Folder" setting has been changed. * The Root Folder has been changed. * A record count mismatch occur has occurred. * The "Handheld Priority" has been changed. * The User Name has been deleted from Chapura Settings. 2. The "–SS" indicates a Slow Synchronization or Slow Sync. Note: A Slow Sync is necessary and does not indicate a problem with synchronization. A Slow Sync will occur in the following instances: * If you synchronize your handheld at one PC and then synchronize it at another PC, the first time you sync at the second PC it will do a Slow Sync. * The first sync after changing the HotSync action from "Do Nothing" to "Synchronize" the files. * The option to synchronize every so many days has been selected. * The first sync after a synchronization that failed. 3. The "Update Sync" will occur when the following changes have been made in "Chapura Settings": * The Location Delimiter has been changed. * The Meetings prefix, "Mtg:" has been added to meetings that have attendees in Outlook. * Private Items are filtered. * The settings for the Transfer of Alarms has been changed. 4. The "–HP" indicates that your synchronization option was set to "Handheld Overwrites PC". 5. The "-PH" indicates that your synchronization option was set to "PC Overwrites Handheld". 6. The "HH" you see during a synchronization indicates the software is reading items from the handheld. 7. The "OL" you see during a synchronization indicates the software is reading items from Outlook. These are only informational messages and do not indicate there was a problem during the synchronization.

SOURCE: Palm M515 hot sync problem
Hi you could either have a problem with the lead witch is the cheapest problem to solve the other problem is with the palm top itself if this is the case then you will need to send it off to get the firmware updated you cant do this yourself because you cant get the correct software to do this you might even need to put the device in recovery mode to install the latest firmware so it will need sending off to do this if you contact customer support number for your device then they should tell you the best way of doing this ok

SOURCE: Palm M515 hot sync problem
I have a similar problem with my m515. I have 3 palms and 2 sync fine but the 3rd isn't even getting to the computer. There is no recognition from the computer that the palm is trying to sync even though I use the same cradle for all palms. The ensuing message is, "the connection between your handeld computer and the desktop could not be established. Please check your setup and try again". My settings are set Local and Cradle/Cable.

If you said you have the software (desktop), your doing it backwards. Run the desktop software by going to my pc and running the disc. The software will then ask you to plug in your E2 so it can register it. It will then synch and your in business. Had E2 for a very long time. Can tell you things that guy can do that would surprize you. Have everything but unit now.

maybe a factory reset may help, please first read these posts below, first, then make a decision as to what to do.
In order to hard, factory, reset your palm, you must press the reset button on the back (with the top of the stylus, or an opened paper clip) while holding down the power button.
You then let go of the reset, while still holding the power button. When you let go of the power button, you will see the Palm splash screen.
Once you see that screen, let go of the power button. You will be prompted to press "up" on the D-navigation button to delete all data. Do so, and your Palm will be totally reset. Now it should be as from the factory... However ALL ANY personal data may be deleted, so it is advisable to have a backup before one does this. This will/should however restore everything, then hopefully you can then put back the calender files data.
Also you may also be able to mount the unit under windows, and go to where you changed those files and change them back to what they should be, this too may help. There is software on the 'net, that can assist with the mounting of these devices, to do this.
See this post below...
Below is your user guide, below that is your handbook.
The TE2 manual at Palm.com, User Guides, Managing your calendar, a 37 page PDF file, page 22:
Open the Purge dialog box:
a. Open the menus.
b. Select Purge on the Record menu.
Select the events to purge:
a. Select the Delete events older than pick list and select a time frame.
b. Check the Save archive copy on PC box if you want to place a copy of the deleted events in an archive file on your computer the next time you synchronize.
c. Select OK.
