Question about Palm Zire 31 Handheld

1 Answer

How do I activate my handheld for a specific user account?

I have Audible on my Palm Zire31. I've recently reinstalled the Palm softwares on my desktop. When I tried playing my Audible files on my Palm, I get the error message "This audio program is owned by "x". You need to activate your handheld for this account." I noticed that my HotSync manager on my Palm says the user is "y". I've added a new user "x" to my Palm Desktop but still doesn't work. I don't know how to activate my "x" user account. Please help.

Re: How do I activate my handheld for a specific user...

Definitely something to address with Audible Digital Rights Management of Audible files is controlled and managed by Audible. In general the way these schemes work is to write some kind of key or token file to your handheld when you first setup your Audble account. Unless the keyfile is present, the player will give you the response you mentioned. With Audible, you can move the authorization from one device to another by deactivating one device and activating another. In your case, you seem to have deactivated your Zire 31 somehow. I suspect that you may have put a new user on the Zire 31 and therefore the DRM keyfile is no longer part of your files on the Zire. It would be associated with the old username and no longer on your handheld. I suspect what you have to do is re-authorize your Zire 31 using the Audible Manager on the PC.

I want to delete a user on my zire31 pda


You should be able to hard reset the palm and erase all data. There should be a rest pin hole on the back, hold it and press the power button. All internal memory will be erased.

Installed software on new laptop & can't hotsync


Yes, just go to the windows website and have it check your system for any updates. It will check your system and see what updates you need. I'll be honest with you, vista can be a pain in the backside but it also can be great and I'm sure will be great once they work all the bugs out.

Switch from outlook to palm desktop


Remember to change (HotSync, Custom) settings before you perform your sync or else you will get duplicate records as I did. Good luck. Support Knowledge Library Click here to go back Click here to print Solution ID: 25263 Switching between Outlook and Palm Desktop synchronization Depending on your device, you might be synchronizing with Outlook using the Palm™ Outlook Conduits, or PocketMirror conduits from Chapura (find out which). Both of these types of conduits are installed and activated when you run the CD-ROM that came with your device. What do you want to learn about? * Switching synchronization: Palm Outlook Conduits * Switching synchronization: PocketMirror Conduits * Synchronizing partially with Palm Desktop, partially with Outlook * Note about data transfer * Macintosh information * Multiple users on the same desktop computer Switching synchronization: Palm Outlook Conduits These instructions apply to the Palm Outlook Conduits that are included with handhelds released after late 2003. The Palm Desktop installer determines which conduits are activated during the installation process. If you want to switch synchronization from Palm Desktop to Outlook, or vice versa, you'll need the original CD-ROM that came with your handheld. 1. Insert the CD-ROM into your computer. A window should open, containing the contents of the CD-ROM. 2. From the Discover Your Handheld screen, select "Install Microsoft Outlook Conduits" or "Change synchronization method" (depending on which device you have) 3. Follow the instructions for switching synchroniztion from or to Palm Desktop or Outlook. 4. See our note about data transfer Remember: Some applications will continue to synchronize with Palm Desktop. Use Palm Desktop to manage applications such as Photos and VoiceMemo

Hotsync with XP Pro and Exchange


Good question - how to elevate your rights for a particular user. Your administrator needs to log you in under your username and temporarily grant you the rights to install software, install a driver and to write to the registry. The rights need to be left active thru the time that you perform your first HotSync operation, as this is the moment when the driver is activated (the registry entries geet written when a driver is 'enumerated').
