Error message using IrComm port

When I try to sync using the Ir port the Tungsten T3 handheld displays the following message "Unable to initiate HotSync operation because the port is in use by another application." however if I try syncing using my old Palm V I received no such message and the it attempts to sync. What is cuasing this conflict and how do I correct it?

Re: Error message using IrComm port

Hi, Right click on hotsync manager at the bottom right corner of the pc , make sure only local serial and ir is having a check mark , if anything else has check mark , just go to that and do a left click , it will get unchecked . On the handheld tap on home , on the main page u will see hotsync icon , tap on that , on the hotsync page make sure via ir , and not cradle or cable , then at the top u will see hotsync in words , tap on that , in the drop down u will see lan sync pref, tap on that and make sure lan sync is highlighted , and not local hot sync , since local hotsync is usefull only when u perform cradle or cable hot sync using usb , then click on ok , try a hotsync . If this doesnt help and again u get the same error , do a soft reset on the handheld and on the pc , go into hotsync manager , click on setup , choose local , change the com port to a different port and reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart the pc and again perform a hotsync . The error u got was coz of this , on ur pc a ir port is not been assigned .. Try this it should work .. Regards

Re: Error message using IrComm port

Not the solution - alternative approach: I have been told by Tech Supp that the problem is because Bluetooth is enabled on my T3. Once you enable Bluetooth the IR port will not work. To correct the problem I have to hard reset my T3 and not enable Bluetooth. Simply disabling Bluetooth does not appear to work. My solution has been to use a USB sync cable for sychronising and Bluetooth for communicating with my mobile phone.

Please use the free chat feature that palm offers. I am not sure of any other way to charge your palm. Here is the link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see Palm Chat. Click on the Chat Now link and follow the instructions. Best wishes.

You might be able to find a charger on Ebay too.

Errors sync with Outlook 2003 and Tungsten T3


I did search through the forums before posting and the only "solution" I found was to buy Chapura PocketMirror for $30 which I refuse to do. I should be able to sync this palm with Office without having to spend even more money.

Sync fails with "too many open databases"


This is what I did to fix that error:

Hard-reset your Palm to erase all data (that usually involves pushing the small "reset" button on the back, then pressing the "power on" button until the device boots, and then pressing "up" to confirm the hard-reset)


After that, sync your palm. The sync software will ask if you want to use your existing profile or create a new one. Create a new one. Then the program will offer to sync your Outlook profile with your Palm. Click on "ok", and a message asking you to accept to sync your Outlook data with more than one profile will pop-up. Click on OK, again... and that's it!
