Hot Sync issues with Palm III after XP upgrade

I am told that a number of people in our facility reported issues with their Palms after our recent upgrade with XP. I last synced in May. All things being the same after the upgrade, when I push the Hot Sync button - no connection is made with the desktop. I have installed the Desktop 4.1.4 upgrade. My Palm OS is 3.1.1 and I am unable to install an OS upgrade, because my Palm won't sync. I am more than a little frustrated to have spent a couple months as I have had time to deal with this issue.

SOURCE: Palm T/X won't hot sync on Window XP Media Center Edition

i had that problem too. sorry it is bugging you.
i know you probably want to sync your data rught now. So for now try to disable the syncing of documents to go (just for now)
on palm desktop, look for the conduits and temporarily disable the syncing of docs to go. Also ensure you plug in your pda charger as well as the usb cable (I found out this helps through experience) and sync. (Just to back it up)

as for the documents to go, there is probably a file(document) that is generating the errors. please look through documents to go on your palm desktop and remove any file you feel is not necessary. also take note that it is best if your pda has some free memory on it. you may want to save those documents on a disk (If you are not already that is..) clearing up ram made my tx more stable esp during hot sync.

please let me know it that worked for you. i still have some suggestions
good luck and enjoy

SOURCE: Palm M515 hot sync problem

Hi you could either have a problem with the lead witch is the cheapest problem to solve the other problem is with the palm top itself if this is the case then you will need to send it off to get the firmware updated you cant do this yourself because you cant get the correct software to do this you might even need to put the device in recovery mode to install the latest firmware so it will need sending off to do this if you contact customer support number for your device then they should tell you the best way of doing this ok

SOURCE: Can I sync an Ipod touch with my Palm Desktop for windows?

I don't believe that the Palm desktop manager is compatible with Ipod. Unless you have your contacts associated with Microsoft Outlook, that should work.

How can I transfer the data from Z222 to window7

Hello de nicola:

I have an entire page devoted just to the Palm Z22, listed below.

Many people report issues with trying to connect the Palm Z22 to new 64 BIT Operating systems like Windows 7 and Windows 8, and although somewhat obscure and time-consuming to set up, this can be done. ONE known software company has a 64 BIT driver, which, when used with other software, can get the SYNC functions working again. Another method is to put a VIRTUAL Windows XP on the Windows 64 BIT Systems, and then SYNC using the already working WIndows XP to get the data from files on the "new" 64 Bit Systems, and back...

I also deal with battery problems, touch screen problems, maintenance, repair, and upkeep issues, so that you may find the page of value! It is at:

I hope this gets your Palm Z22 up and running again, and keeps it that way...

good luck

Compatability between Window Vista Home Premium and PALM TREO 680

THis is because vista and older palms aren't compatible. You need to transfer via bluetooth or upgrade your palm.

Palm M515 hot sync problem

I have a similar problem with my m515. I have 3 palms and 2 sync fine but the 3rd isn't even getting to the computer. There is no recognition from the computer that the palm is trying to sync even though I use the same cradle for all palms. The ensuing message is, "the connection between your handeld computer and the desktop could not be established. Please check your setup and try again". My settings are set Local and Cradle/Cable.
