Hotsync disconnects my LD

I was able to hotsync my LD once with my PC. the next time i tried it, i couldn't connect with my PC anymore. the lifedrive manager window would be on and indicate the space i have available on the lower right corner. when i press the hotsync button on the cable attached to the base of the LD, the lower right corner changes to a message; "palmOne device is not connected". then i get a similar message on the LD saying i'm unable to hotsync. when i tap "ok", the lifedrive manager reconnects on its own telling me whats in my device and space available. same thing happens when i tap the hotsync button in my LD

I've had this problem getting these set up in the past for customers.

What you want to do is go to your device manager and sync the palm while the window is open.

Look for a yellow triangle with an ! in the middle of it down towards the bottom by USB controllers.

If it pops up, double click on it and go to the drivers and try to reinstall your driver.

Lifedrive wifi


Does the wifi work at all after it resets? Have you applied the level 2 palm srvice pack to the LD? I believe the update changes how the wifi operates. If you go to www.palmone.com and go to the lifedrive page you should see a list of downloads for it. If you click on the 2.0 update there is a description of how to tell if you need this or if it is already installed. You just need to check the version of one file. Download and install the patch and see if that fixes everythng.

If that doesn't fix it you may have a more serious problem that could require replaceing or fixing the LD

LD and Navman SmartST with Bluetooth ?


You might need to install the NavMan T5 update (not the Palm T5 update!) before it'll work on your LifeDrive. Dunno, but try it without first.

Wikipedia with lifedrive?


tr3 files are desktop PC files, they must be converted to .pdb files by the TomeRaider desktop program. Changing the file extention does not convert the data to Palm format, it is still PC data.

Lost all contacts, memos, tasks, after LifeDrive Update 1.0


This morning I downloaded LifeDrive Update 1.0, and when I did a HotSync afterwards, I got an error message saying, Handheld Tasks application database version not supported. Handheld Notes application database version not supported. Now my contacts, memos, tasks, calendar entries and possibly other items are all gone!! This is the core data that is the reason why I use a PDA! I would be totally distraught, except that the data does still seem to exist in Outlook on my PC. I am running Outlook 2002, SP3 on a WinXP machine. Can anyone help to fix this problem? thanks,

How do you get the Lifedrive to hotsync with MS Outlook 2003?


Check the USB and hotsync logs when you next try this. It will show what it did or couldn't do. That should give you an idea why the conduit isn;t talking to outlook. It may be a security setting in windows or outlook or the conduit needs to be setup.

Nothing major just annoying.

Vx to Outlook 2002 failed - no connection Established


hi, on ur palm tap on home , u would see hotsync icon tap on that , on the hotsync page , u would see ur name on top or just welcome , make sure u see direct serial on the same page , tap on the top left corner where it says hotsync in words , in the drop down , tap on lan sync prefs , make sure local hotsync is darker in shade. on the pc make sure u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , if not , click on start , click on all programs , choose palm desktop , inside that u would see hotsync manager , left double click on that , if it doesnt appear at the bottom right corner , try 4times , then if it still persists , restart the pc and try again. Once u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , right click on that , left click on setup , left click on local , choose a different com port , reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart ur pc and try hotsyncin , if it doesnt work try the previous step again and do not forget to restart ur pc , and then perform a hs , it will work .... Regards
