Question about Palm Zire 31 Handheld

Can't synch Outlook Calendar Appointments

I've got a Zire 31 that I stopped using for awhile because I had lost the power cord. When I hooked it back up and performed a HotSync, everything synched but my appointments in Outlook Calendar, though I had had no trouble before. Holidays that I have set in Outlook appear in my Palm, but not appointments, and I get no error message. I've tried doing a hard reset on my palm, reinstalling the Palm software, and reinstalling just the Outlook conduits. I've also checked that all my HotSync settings are right - and clearly it's working on some level because the holidays I have set in Outlook appear on my Palm. I am just using this on my laptop computer, so none of the issues related to using a Microsoft Exchange Server apply in my case. I've looked through the entire Forum, I think, and can't find anything that works to fix this problem. Any ideas?

Try uninstalling with Windows Uninstall Clean-up tool. XP seems to do a poor job of installing conduits sometimes. I think this might be an issue with the one conduit no being registered correctly in the Windows Registry. You can get this tool here: Uninstall Palm Desktop. Then shut down the PC. Then start it up again and re-install Palm Desktop. I hope this helps.

I had exactly the same problem. I Hot Synched it with my computer (Ignore instructions for load cd) and everything returned as normal. Since this episode, I've learnt to hot synch more often than I was doing.

Synchronizing with Outlook

If the installer cannot see outlook, then it will not show the option. I think the Zire 31 CD has an option on it it that allows you to switch when you put the CD back into your PC. It should be visible on the autostart screen that pops up when you insert the CD.

Unresolved Items when synching

Try the following.... Open Active sync on your PC. Double Click on Calendar. Change the settings such that it syncs only 0 past and 0 future appointments. SYNC (this will clear all calendar items on the IPAQ) Now go back in to those Calendar settings, and set it back to the default which is 2 past weeks and All Future appointments. SYNC (this will now reload all appointments into your Ipaq)
