Won't sync to clean Palm

Batteries died on Palm m105. Replaced batteries, then tried to HotSync to restore info from PC to Palm. HotSync asks me to click on username as expected, then immediately terminates HotSync attempt. Log shows the following, including last successful Hotsync before the battery change: HotSync Error: Unknown error. (2) HotSync operation complete HotSync Error: Unknown error.

You may need to enter your user name in your "clean palm"

Re: won't sync to clean Palm

I recently encountered a similar case with hot sync that had the same error. In my case the Treo 600 smart phone was replaced with another similar unit. To solve my issue, I had to login to the workstation as the user that installed the Palm Desktop and the hot sync manager programs. Hot sync manager 4.1 on a win 2000 PC is used. With regards to hot sync, the conduit settings had to be changed to use a one-way sync - from desktop to pda for the 1st 4 conduits/applications (i.e., calendar, address book). The Palm Desktop options had to be changed to refer to the proper location for the info. In my environment, users don't have admin permissions on the PC, but there is something about the software level that requires some actions to be taken by the SW installer; in my case the installer was the local PC admin. Let me know if this helps.

Re: won't sync to clean Palm

It may be due to a permissions issue on the workstation running the hot sync program

I have a Handspring Visor Graphite Handheld and when i shnged the bateries i lost all my data. Anyone can help?


If you have hotsynced your Visor with a PC (or Mac), the first time you sync your Visor to that computer, it should restore all the data from the last hotsync to the PDA. This is one big reason that it makes sense to sync your PDA on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, if you never used the hotsync function for your Visor, you may not be able to recover any of your data. This model Handspring Visor requires good batteries or else everything in its memory will randomize and you will lose all stored information. There is a small capacitor in the Visor that provides enough reserve power for about 30-60 seconds when you pull out the batteries. It's for this reason that Palm recommended pulling out only one battery at a time when changing to a fresh set. That minimized the amount of time that the PDA would be without power. That same advice applies equally to Visor PDAs.

My palm pilot battery died. When i replaced the battery all mhy phone #'s and calendar. were gone. Is there a way to restore them?


Hello.

Unfortunately, the only way to restore the address info and calendar is if you have been backing up your info from your Palm to your computer. Use the bluetooth (if you have) or connect the cradle to hotsync and transfer all your info back to your Palm.

Hope this helps.

My palm m105 keeps locking up after hotsyncing


You most likely have to get rid of the software you added. Either it is the last one or (and this is annoying) one of the other ones. ;-]

What happens normally is that one of the library files isn't quite the same but has the same name ie newer version or older. So the first thing to try is to get rid of the last program. You may have to do a hard reset/restore and then load the programs back on one at a time. The real annoying part is sometimes you can get all of the programs on and working just by installing in a different order.

Are you syncing the new device to the same username in Palm Desktop as an older device?
If you are, this will cause problems on the new device. When you sync the device, it saves the device settings, 3rd party apps, preferences, etc. in the backup folder in the username folder on the PC. When

you sync the new device it copies the contents of the backup folder for the old device to the new device. This will cause corruption in the settings for the new device thus causing erratic behavior of the new device.

Looks like you may need to hard reset your device and rename your backup folder

Go to http://www.palm.com/cgi-bin/cso_kbURL.cgi?ID=887 and follow the directions to do a hard reset. Next before you hotsync your data back over you will need to rename your backup folder, to do that go here;

XP
C:\program files\palm or palm one\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old


Vista
Start-->documents\Palm OS Desktop\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old

Then hotsync to your current hotsync name and all your contacts, calendar,
tasks, and memos will come back over.

Show file extensions for XP or Vista

XP
If you can not view file extensions on your PC I would like you to open a
folder go to Tools-->Folder Options--> View (tab) and under show hidden
files and folders uncheck hide file extensions for known file types.

Vista
Open control Panel go to Folder Options--> View (tab) and under show hidden
files and folders uncheck hide file extensions for known file types.

Palm Tx problem after hotsync


I had the same issue, the palm is stuck in a loop,
I got mine out of this by pressing the power button while the palm was on the screen where the bar goes across the bottom, it asked me if I wanted to erase all data, I said yes, and it reboot normally, I went thru the setup, and all is o.k.
I did have to try this several times, but it eventually worked. Hope this helps, although it looks like this is an older question. I hope you have resolved it.

Sync only goes one way -- from palm to computer


Check the hot sync manager to set the flow of info from desktop to device during the initial restoration of data to your Palm. Afterwards, once you have all your info restored, you'll want the device(s) and desktop calendar to update each other, so make sure your settings in the sync manager reflect that, otherwise you'll continue to have one schedule overwriting the other.

Hope that helps. Let me know how you make out.

Possible to restore data after a Hard Reset?


look here for your files
C:\Program Files\palmOne\[username]\Backup
and
C:\Program Files\palmOne\[username]\address


Now that you've made this mistake once, you probably want to get a backup program. I use the built in backup in Resco Explorer. They also make a stand alone application.

For your SD card backup might look at Bluesync.
For a free option you can use the PFB (palm file browser), but I would still manually backup the card with a cardreader attached to the pc on occasion.

Lost calendar on hotsync


The information is unfortunately lost.

Unless you synced the palm on another computer, the palm only can back up the information when synced.

So if you sync it and the computer overwrites the handheld, the information never made it to the computer and thus cannot be restored.

The only thing you could check would be the backup folder in the palm directory under your profile name. Palm puts all of the .prc/.pdb files in there when you sync.
