You must have a 3rd party or a driver from a prior different palm os device causing the problem. You will need to rename your C:\Program Files\palmone\Username\Backup\ directory to allow the first sync. It will create a new one. The double click on the files in the old Backup one at a time to determine which one to avoid or reinstall the apps one by one.

My computer crashed. I have a backup of all my Palm files but am having trouble recovering them. Does anyone have instructions on how to restore backup files on a Palm Tungsten E2?

Hello.

Palm backups are located in the following directory: C:\Program Files\Palm\username>\ED\Backup\

When you HotSync a PDA that has undergone a hard reset, HotSync will compare the two devices. When it sees that the PDA is empty, it will attempt to reload any backup that exists on the PC. Once this data is reloaded, the PDA will ask to do a soft reset. This is simply a restart of the device and doesn't affect any of the newly installed data. This returns the PDA to working order, with all the data and programs functioning as they were before.

Hope this resolves your problem.

Visor Deluxe does not start

Hi.

The procedure below shows how to reset the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.
After backing up your data with HotSync, perform a hard reset, this will erase all applications and returns your device to its factory default settings.

To perform a hard reset:
1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the PDA.
2. While holding down the power button, use a paper clip to press the reset button.
3. Release the power button.
4. You will get a message warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on the PDA, do the following:
Press the top scroll button on the front panel
to complete the hard reset and display the startup screen.
If you press any other button you will do a soft reset, that will not fix the problem. In that case restart the procedure.
5. After doing hard reset the unit will return to the initial factory state. All third party installed applications will be deleted, and setting will be reported to factor default.

Connect to HotSync and do a backup of the PDA, then do hard reset on Palm.

If the PDA is not detected by Hotsync, then there is an additional problem.

To troubleshoot problems given by third party application you do a backup, then rename the backup folder containing third party application data to Backup.old, and do hard reset.

After that you start restoring applications from backup.old one at the time, when one application jams the Palm, that is the responsible for the error message.

Procedure is described here.

Regards.

After linking to my desktop and doing a two directional hotsync and installing some software including 'mobipocket' a message ' memorymgr.c,Line:3835, NULL handle' appears. A reset is suggested but the...

The solution is in the same message in which I stated the problem as I hit upon it before I sent the message. It is here for free as I discovered it ' by the hand of the Almighty'. As the pda is rebooting when doing a soft reset try to jiggle the 'on-off' switch off. If nothing happens repeat the process. At some stage the machine should switch off. Now things should be OK. I don't know why it worked for me but I hope it works for you.

Pda will not hotsync

assuming that you use your palm tx on a windows xp system, files from the emails could be corrupted. are you using palm desktop or outlook?
if you are using palm desktop, you can rename the back-up folder to old and try to resync

Palm tungsten

you may want to run through a few troubleshooting tricks
first try pulling out any extra USB type items that you remove and replace frequently (like a flash drive) and restart your computer after its done booting up you can try hotsyncing again. Make sure what you wanted to put on your PDA is still in the Hotsync manager box.
A PDA not wanting to hotsync is a very general statement. It is an indicator for many different problems.
-You may need a new hotsync cable
-try a different usb port on your computer
-you could open the PDA up and check if all the contacts are clean and connected (Warranty void alert)
-Try re-installing the PAlm desktop software
-If nothing else works put whatever application you're trying to hotsync onto a SD card and copy it from the card and onto the PDA

Tungsten Es are excellent PDAs and it doesn't have too many problems besides being too "basic". A problem like not hot syncing probably isn't an indicator of something really bad unless you've dropped it too many times.
If all else fails you may need to pick up a different PDA
