Question about Palm VIIx Handheld
When I loaded the Palm VIIx software onto my new computer from the website and did a hot sync, it somehow did a sync with the Microsoft Outlook (at least the calendar) and I am not sure how it happened but would like to know how I can do it again.
I also have encountered this: The issues, however, started after our enterprise at work switched the backoffice server from Win2K pro to 2003 server. All users received new Outlook profiles. I know there are hidden services for Palm bundled into the outlook profile so I simply edited the old profile to point to the new server and proceeded as follows: CPU was an HP Pavilion DV1000 laptop with Windows XP Pro SP2 with Outlook 2003 to a Palm Tungsten E PDA. Unit would not synchronize contacts or calendar, producing "Calendar Synchronization Failed" and "Contacts Synchronization failed" errors. Creating entries in outlook contacts and calendar did not show up on the Palm. Creating entries on the PDA did not show up in Outlook. To rule out windows profile corruption, I backed up the users profile data, deleted her windows profile and logged back in to create a new one, copied all of her favorites, documents and desktop information back to the new profile and tried again. No joy. I created a new palm profile to rule out issues with the users original Palm profile being corrupt or damaged. I verified the hotsync app was pointing to the correct palm and outlook profiles. To rule out issues with her outlook profile being corrupt or damaged I backed up her contact and calendar data, wiped that too and created an all new one and re-imported the contact data from a personal folder not connected to an exchange server. No change. I deinstalled and reinstalled the Palm software as well as the conduits for outlook. No change. I downloaded the new and improved conduits that were supposed to fix issues with outlook synch problems. No change. I finally backed up all of the data on her palm by creating a new outlook profile that was not connected to our exchange server at the company but rather a personal folder on the PC and once the data was saved there the data was imported back to the users mailbox. This didn't work but it allowed us to back up all the data on the palm and let us perform some experimentation with formatting the palm clean as a plate and trying anew with her account and profiles - no change. I found the errors only occurred when logged in as the user herself. If I logged in as me and started fresh from a reinitialized palm on her computer it would work. Amazing. I even found that creating a new local user account on the PC and pointing at her own outlook account on the mail server wouldn't work either.. But it would work for my own. After some brainstorming.... I believe that the issue is related to a corrupt e-mail box on the actual mailserver itself rather than an issue with the workstation or the palm itself since if I log in as myself, I can set it up and make it work. I can use a different account. It works. But it ALWAYS fails when we attempt to attach to the users mailbox on the server itself. So, some of these issues could be related to changes or problems on an Outlook mailbox th

I was having a similar problem with my M515. I had originally installed the Palm Desktop from my CD, which was an older version. When I totally uninstalled the old version and installed the newer version from the Palm website I was able to do a successful sync. I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate and Palm Desktop version 4.1.4

BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.
1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.
2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.
3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which drain the battery.
Try above steps might help.
Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm also.
If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.
Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.
