Migrating software and data to new computer

Please can anyone tell me how to transfer my software and data from an old Windows NT computer and serial cradle to a new Windows XP computer with a USB cradle? I need to download/transfer the Palm Desktop software, Chapura PocketMirror and Settings, and data files. I would like to be able to synchronise with Outlook (as before on the old computer) on the new computer without losing or duplicating data. Thanks for any help or advice.

Re: Migrating software and data to new computer

Assume that your Visor is your data respository. So you should make sure that you have an up-to-date synchronization from the NT PC. Now get the XP compatible software for your Visor from the palmOne website and install it on the XP box. I assume that you will be synching via USB this time - this is the default setup when you install the software. Hopefully you still have the USB cradle that came with the Visor. You can still use serial sync with XP but you should try to take advantage of the speed of USB on the new PC. Download for XP & Visors: http://www.palmone.com/us/support/downloads/visor/win_desktop_401.html Once the software is installed, sync with the new computer and all your data should be copied from the Visor to your PC in the first synchronization. By the way, Outlook shouild be installed on the new computer before you install the Visor software; otherwise the installer will not offfer to install the PocketMirror conduits.

I have an old workpad IBM C3, I would like to transfer all my data on my new windows 7 computer. What shall I do? (It worked with windows XP but I don't remember what I did to install a driver pilot)


You need to download the Desktop manager and Hotsync for your WordPad C3. For your old device, you'll need 4.1.4.

How do i transfer the data from the old palm to


The Palm Desktop (installed on your computer) should have all the information that is currently on it. Make sure that you sync before moving on.

On the tungsten, there will be a version of the palm desktop (updated) for it. Just install that version, it will find your old version, and import from there. PalmDesktop 6 supports Vista, unknown how well it will work as a 32bit app being emulated in 64bit environment.

I had a TREO650 and have replaced it with a Treo700wx. I want to have the Palm Desktop information on my new phone.


With this method of upgrading your handheld, you'll transfer all PIM¹ data from your existing user name to your new handheld with the same user name. You will also transfer all third-party applications to your new handheld. Caution: Some third-party applications may not be compatible with your new handheld. Your handheld will crash, freeze or display an error when these third-party applications conflict with your new handheld. If you notice performance issues or problems after transferring third-party software to your handheld, follow our steps for diagnosing third-party software issues.
  1. You must install the version of Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager included on the CD-ROM with your new handheld, even if you already have an earlier installation on your computer, and even if you will synchronize with Microsoft Outlook. This ensures that the desktop components of any new handheld features are added.
  2. Put the new handheld's CD-ROM² in the CD-ROM drive.

  3. Follow the installation instructions that appear.
  4. When prompted, select the existing username of your old handheld.
  5. During installation, you will be asked to perform a HotSync operation. Use the same existing username as above.
  6. Once installation is complete, your PIM¹ data and third-party applications will be transferred to your new handheld. Your new handheld will have the same name as your old handheld.
  7. To avoid confusion, change the name on your old handheld once you're sure that you have all your data transferred to your satisfaction. If you're going to sell or give it away, you may wish to perform a hard reset to erase all your personal data.
  8. With this method, you have a greater likelihood of encountering third-party application incompatibilities. If you notice performance issues or problems after transferring third-party software to your handheld, follow our steps for diagnosing third-party software issues.

You need to sync the old one with your PC, then simply set up a new partnership with your new Ipaq and sync it with that same PC.
