Palm life drive frozen on "palm one "screen


When you see the first screen (the orange one) hold the UP button as the bar moves across the bottom of the screen. Let go right before the screen goes to the silver logo. If it continues and opens Prefs, then you need to delete the program causing it to reboot. If that doesn't work, do a Hard Reset. A Hard Reset will erase everything on your lifedrive, so only do it if you have to. Hold the Power Button while you push the reset button. Continue with the instructions to finish erasing your device.

My lifedrive seems to have developed a mind of its own. Calibration is off and it just randomly clicks on items and goes to the program associated with it.


That can be from a couple of things. If you have a screen protector on try taking it off. Also check for crud under the buttons. I've had it caused by both. The screen protector was perfectly in place and this stopped the instant I pulled it off.

It is possible it is a fault in the digitzer hardware but that is quite uncommon and requires replacement.

When the lifedrive dies duo harddisk, there are


You have two options one is of course a replacement drive but the other is replacing the little hard drive with a flash disk. The flash drive is nothing more than a 4gb compact flash memory card that happens to use the same connector as the Hitachi hard drive. Of the two I'd go flash myself.

The flash disk is faster and uses far less power so your battery life can increase by quite a bit. I think it is something like 10% of the power. Next to the display this is the single biggest power item. I've heard of the useful battery life increasing anywhere from 3x to about 6x after doing this. You can get the drive or flash from several places online. These are the same CF cards as used in many cameras. Most also offer the installation service.

Here is a link to one place but do a few searches and compare prices etc. Just search for lifedrive, flash, drive or lifedrive hard drive replacement and you should get quite a few.

My Lifedrive won't boot up


Seems the LifeDrive Micro Drive is the killer on these Palms. Mine did the same thing and after extensive online research I found that the micro drive can be replaced with a Compact Flash card which is much more reliable. Apparently there are only certain CF cards that work with the LifeDrive though. I have found at least one retailer that sells a compatible CF preloaded with the Lifedrive software. The route I took for repair was to send it out to a guy that advertises his service on eBay. You send in the LifeDrive, he diagnoses it for $5, and can install the CF card with software for $89 (he waives the $5 if you have him fix it). I am looking forward to getting mine back in permanent working order! Here is the link:

Dead; will not boot up


I to have the same problem. Palm will switch a refurbished on to me for $175. To talk ot their tech support will cost $25. I have decided to do 1 of 2 things. 1. replace the microdrive with a 4Gb Compact flash and if that is not successful, just throw it away and NEVER get another Palm product. Mine died just after the warranty ran out. 12 months plus a few days.

Preventing hard drive spindown


SharkCache or RLock maybe cause some reset when you use your LifeDrive. In other word, SharkCache or RLock makes the LifeDrive unstable. It will conflict with some program you install in the LifeDrive. Speed or Stable ? You can judge by yourself.

Why does my PALM LIFE DRIVE RESTART


What was the error reported? Things to think about: 1. Have you installed the updater for LifeDrive? It's worth making sure you have the latest ROM. www.palmone.com/us/support for more details. 2. What extra software are you running? Some of the usual suspects include Docs To Go. Make sure you have the latest version of Docs To Go. 3. Consider removing all third-party applications and adding them back one by one to find the culprit.
