Question about Palm i705 Handheld
I had a Palm V and recently rec'd a "used" i705. I uninstalled and deleted all old Palm software/data files and downloaded/installed new Palm Desktop software (HotSync Mgr 4.1.0). Created a new user. Cleared all info on i705 and am unable to get HotSync to work. I am connected via USB port (verified good). When I right click on the icon in my tray it shows "Local USB", but setup/Local tab shows Serial: COM1. When I attempt to HotSync via cradle, I receive the following message: "The connection between your handheld computer and desktop could not be established. Please check your setup and try again." I run XP Home, SP1. Help, please?
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

My problem was resolved by uninstalling Palm Desktop, then then reinstalling it. First, I had to make a copy of my Palm folder to make sure nothing was lost. Then uninstall Palm Desktop, reinstall it off the CD, and synch. And because I use Chapura Pocket Mirror XT as the interface, I had to reinstall that as well and then resynch. While talking with the Palm representative cost money and was time consuming, it was ultimately the best option. It also left me with duplicate entries which I had to clean up, but at least I'm back to synching again.

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.
