Windows XP, Palm m130, & Outlook 2003 - Sync problem

I just switched to Windows XP and now my Palm to Outlook sync doesn't work -- I've been on the website and done all that is recommended, to no avail. When I hit Sync on my cradle -- my computer makes a "ding-ding" noise -- a much lower tone than the little jingle it plays during a successful sync. The sync attempt seems to continue, and after a few moments the computer dings again and the palm says "The connection between your handheld computer and the desktop could not be established. pelase check your setup and try again." Any ideas?

I posted this same problem 8/11. I am confused with reference to USB when we are using a serial connection. For me the problem happened with IE service Pack 2 XP update. All things were the same one day to the next, but I get this same message - unable to connect. My troubleshooting was to download the latest versions of desktop and OS for Palm, but I can't get the new OS to the palm without being able to hot sync. I would like to do a system restore to the date before the upgrade so I could at least sync the new OS to the palm. Corporate guides prevent me from doing that.

It sounds like the computer is noticing the USB activity (from when you hit the HotSync button) but for some reason it can't find the correct information/driver. I'd first try a soft reset (stick a paper clip or the end of your stylus may screw off to reveal a pin, in the hole at the back of your palm) Don't worry, it won't delete your info UNLESS YOU HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON (SO DON'T). Once it's booted back up, try the hotsync again. If that doesn't work, you may need to find the usb driver for your palm and reinstall it. This could just be copying a file from disc, or reloading your Palm Software. Good luck

How to sync palm data with Itouch? I have all my contacts & calendar on my Palm Zire. How can I get the same data over to my I touch in a Windows XP environment ?


You can sync to Outlook on the PC and then get the Outlook data onto the iTouch. If you have a newer PDA, It's install CD has a Sync options menu item where you can switch between Palm Desktop and Outlook. If you no longer have the original install CD or have an older device Pocket, Copy from Chapura.com It will move the Palm Desktop records to Outlook.

Tx will no longer sync with outlook 2003 or outlook 2007 calendars. Software reinstalled, tx reset, latest updates for syncing with outlook 03 and outlook 07 loaded, still won't sync to outlook calendar...


I would recommend contact the palm free chat. Here is a link for that. I have a TX and have used the chat feature myself and always with good results. Scroll to the bottom of the page and then you will see Palm chat. From there click on chat now and follow the directions. Best wishes.

Tungsten E and Outlook 2003 sync problem


yes I moved my files to a new machine and reinstalled palm (which of course also created the dreaded multiple copies of many palm contacts, when palm discovered older archives, but that is another story!) I wouldn't mind that if the palm pilot would just sync with outlook 2003. It synched with Outlook 2000 on my old machine.

You never mentioned your drivers, they could be out of whack. Try updating them or get a Microsoft compatible driver. Check the device manager for problems.
