Question about Palm V

HotSync fails using PalmConnect/Palm V on XP-Pro Tablet PC

I have a Palm V connected via PalmConnect to my Motion Computing Tablet PC. The Tablet doesnt' have serial ports in the docking station - only USB. I installed the latest Palm Destkop software and the XP Driver from the PalmOne support site. They all seem to be installed properly. When I press the HotSync button on my Palm V, nothing happens on the desktop of the Tablet. The Palm shows that it is trying to connect and then just times out. The Palm V and Cradle work fine on a Win2000 Dell Laptop I have. This is the last thing I need to do to get the Tablet set up. Please help! Thanks in advance

This one is simple - Tablet edition is not supported. Sorry to break the news to you but palmOne soes not support synchronization with Tablet editions of Windows. If you can get it to work, great but you cannot get direct support for it.

Palm Desktop compatibility with Windows 7 and 64-bit editions Palm Desktop 6.2 was designed for 32-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. You may be able to use this software with other versions of Windows.
Windows 7: Many users have successfully installed and used Palm Desktop 6.2 with Windows 7. Palm has not done thorough testing with a range of third-party equipment running Windows 7, therefore Palm cannot guarantee compatibility.
64-bit editions of Windows: USB HotSync is not supported. Instead, synchronize through a Bluetooth wireless connection: set up Bluetooth HotSync.

Compatability between Window Vista Home Premium and PALM TREO 680


THis is because vista and older palms aren't compatible. You need to transfer via bluetooth or upgrade your palm.

During hotsync, data wont transfer from Computer to palm


Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

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.

Considerations for Windows 2000 - WorkPad c500/505


The WorkPad c500 and c505 can be used only with PCs running Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows 2000 operating systems. NOTE: Microsoft Windows 95 and Microsoft NT 4.0, or serial connectivity, require a serial HotSync cradle or cable, available separately from Palm, Inc. The WorkPad HotSync utility will not sync via IR when the host PC is running Windows 2000.

hi, on ur palm tap on home , u would see hotsync icon tap on that , on the hotsync page , u would see ur name on top or just welcome , make sure u see direct serial on the same page , tap on the top left corner where it says hotsync in words , in the drop down , tap on lan sync prefs , make sure local hotsync is darker in shade. on the pc make sure u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , if not , click on start , click on all programs , choose palm desktop , inside that u would see hotsync manager , left double click on that , if it doesnt appear at the bottom right corner , try 4times , then if it still persists , restart the pc and try again. Once u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , right click on that , left click on setup , left click on local , choose a different com port , reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart ur pc and try hotsyncin , if it doesnt work try the previous step again and do not forget to restart ur pc , and then perform a hs , it will work .... Regards
