Question about Handspring Visor Deluxe Handheld
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.

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.
