Or you can simply right click the hotsync tasbar icon, go to "Costume", double click on Memo pad, and then choose: "Do Nothing". That will simply stop the transfer of all memos from and to the computer. sounds like thats what you want to do.

I don't think you can select which memos are transfered, but you can Hide them so they are seen on the PC only with a password, or you can use a third party application to save personall delicated info ...

Using the desktop, is there anyway to move(either to the memory card or the PC) or delete files on a Palm TX. I apparently used to much of the devices memory and now I can't ge to the home screen(it...


If you're able to hotsync, then yes. In the desktop, delete notes or other items (Does the TX have voice memos? Those would be a quick way to free up a lot of space!)
Perform a hotsync, and your Palm should then have some free memory.

If you're not able to hotsync, then nothing you do in the Desktop will have any effect on the Palm.

But, I'm skeptical that this is the real problem. It sounds more like memory corruption, and a hard reset is going to be the real fix.

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.

Hi----- hope this works--- you might need new update software.
  1. Download Palm Software installer (.dmg file)
  2. Ensure you are logged in to your Macintosh as a user with Admin privileges.
  3. Double-click on the PalmSoftware installer file.
  4. Enter your Administrator password when prompted.
  5. Install or renstall Palm Desktop. Note: There is no uninstaller included.
What is this software? This software lets you sync your Palm device with your computer, so your info is backed up and easily editable on your computer.
Keep your information up to date wherever you are. When you sync, any changes you've made to Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos are automatically added to your computer or your Palm device.
Palm Desktop is the desktop personal information manager. HotSync Manager controls synchronization. Both are included in a single download on this page.
If you sync with Microsoft Outlook or Entourage, you still should install this software.

How To Install Before you begin:
  1. Be sure you are logged in to your Mac with admin privileges. If you're not sure how to dothis, refer to Apple support.
  2. Keep your Mac's admin password in mind. You'll need to enter it during installation.
Download & install:
  1. Download the file and double-click it (PalmDesktopMac421Revd.dmg).
  2. After your Mac mounts the file, a new icon named palmOneSoftware.pkg will appear in the same location. Double-click this item.

  4. When installation is finished, you may drag and drop the palmOneSoftware.pkg item to the Trash, or archive it on your Mac hard drive for future reference.

How do i transfer my information from pc to my palm?


You should be able to just by hotsyncing. The question is if your hotsync is working. My dads coworker gave us her old palm m130, as she had no use for it anymore. After my zire 72 broke, i needed a palm to fill in and here i had this ready made back up. However, i can't get the darned thing to hotsync. Ive tried hotsyncing  both with a USB port and a serial port, and on neither of them can i get a connection established. Anyone that can help will be much appreciated.

Lost all contacts, memos, tasks, after LifeDrive Update 1.0


This morning I downloaded LifeDrive Update 1.0, and when I did a HotSync afterwards, I got an error message saying, Handheld Tasks application database version not supported. Handheld Notes application database version not supported. Now my contacts, memos, tasks, calendar entries and possibly other items are all gone!! This is the core data that is the reason why I use a PDA! I would be totally distraught, except that the data does still seem to exist in Outlook on my PC. I am running Outlook 2002, SP3 on a WinXP machine. Can anyone help to fix this problem? thanks,

Is Palm Desktop Required when using Outlook?


to be able to hotsync with outlook u need to install the Palm Dektop, and while installing check the option synchronize with outlook. this will install conduits that make the hotsync with outlook possible, and don't forget that only the conatcts, calendar, memos and tasks are synchronized with outlook, the rest (if it is interisting u ) will be synchronized with the PDS. good luck

Zire 72 Won't Sync Notes


I feel your pain as I'm having even more problems than you, see my post. However, having learned quite a bit about this topic, I suggest ensuring the Hot Sync is set for the desktop to overwrite the PDA as opposed to PDA overwriting the desktop, which sounds like what's happening. That's the only suggestion I have. Hope it works out for you.

Hot sync does not work


"PLEASE SET SYNCHRONIZATION OPTION ENABLE SYNC WHEN OUTLOOK IN UI IN ORDER TO SYNC IN OFFLINE MODE" Just go to your Hotsync Manager icon Click Custom Click each Outlook conduit ex. Calendar Outlook Click Change Click Settings Check the Box that says Enable Synchronization when Outlook is Offline Then do same process for Contacts, Tasks and Memos. Wherever your updated data is..make sure you set Action of conduit to example: Desktop Overwrites HH (if your OUTLOOK has the most updated data.) Hope that resolves your problem.

Why does pocket mirror trawl through all items when synchronising a calendar


The HotSync software on the Mac was never designed to cope with the scenario where you synch with a PC elsewhere. It assumes that you are performing a recovery synchronization when it sees that the handheld synched elsewhere. The assumption with the Palm OS was always that you synched one computer to one PDA. With more propsperous times, the software has not yet evolved at Palm Source (not part of Palm Inc any longer.) With regards to PocketMirror, there is a setting to allow you to synch to more than one PC. The setting is buried deep in the PocketMirror settings for each of the four conduits. The setting allows PocketMirror to see more than one PC as your route to an Exchange server.
