Wifi connection issues with Palm One LifeDrive

It sounds like you need to setup the network settings on the palm or the wep or securty key or both.

When it shows the network id tap edit then enter the wep or wpa key if needed, then tap details to get to the screen where you enter the normal network details.

Usually it is just the security key that causes this. Get that code in and you might pop right on.

LifeDrive will not recognize SD expansion card

If the sdcard is the right type and size all you need to do is fully insert it into the slot. Its spring loaded so it will pop up if it isn't quite far enough in. It should only fit one way.

Generally the LD likes 2gb and smaller sdcards , it can use bigger such as 4gb but that's when you can be hit or miss. That depends on brand and sd version.If you search for a list of LD compatible sd cards you should find out what card to use or buy.

Bluetooth sync

HP, the new "supporter" of all things Palm, has provided Palm Support Palm Tungsten E2 Palm Desktop 6 2 and HotSync Manager... to give "legacy" Palm PDA's a fighting chance with Win7; I have heard of no such efforts promised for Win8. There has been at least one entrepreneur who have been refurbishing/customizing Palm PDAs for sale at Amazon that are guaranteed to run on Win 7, and some have commented that they would customize a personal unit...for a price. However, I have not heard if anyone has yet try to attack the Win 8 problem. I have heard there are inherent barriers between Win8 and PalmOS which cannot be resolved, but I have no idea what they were. Good Luck.

Palm LifeDrive dead

You may be stuck in a loop-,/?St=2,E=0000000000825355002,K=8658,Sxi=6,Case=Obj(26419)

After you do a hard reset, try naming the palm something other than what the name was before hand and see if that profile works.

Palm Lifedrive's dead

Its probably the motherboard which needs replacing. There are other posts on this site with the same problem, try referring to them.

I hard reset Palm LifeDrive.

When you say you perform a hard reset on it how did you go about the hard reset? Did you use a code? There are various ways of carrying out a hard reset some use coded and these codes usually end up deleting some of the system files in the unit and cause such damages as you are experiencing now. What you need to do is download the OS setup from the units website and install it fresh on the unit this should correct all errors which were caused by the hard reset.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Not able to contact Tech

If your device encounters a system extension that is corrupted or contains an error after a reset, it will automatically reset and try to load the corrupted extension again, which causes it to reset again, and so on in an infinite loop.
"What's a system extension?" you may ask. System extensions are software programs loaded the first time your device starts after a reset. System extensions extend the functionality of your device; for example the software that allows your device to send data through the Infrared (IR) port is a system extension.
Break out of the loop
To escape from the loop, perform a system reset.
If the looping or freezing is related to an application or extension, a system reset will only temporarily resolve the problem. To ensure that the problem won't reoccur, see our article about diagnosing software issues.
Note: If a system reset does not restore your device to working order, you can perform a hard reset. A hard reset will erase all your data, so use it as a last resort only.
Handheld is temporarily frozen or slow, not completely frozen
If your handheld is running, but it's extremely slow and normal operations take a very long time time to complete (seems frozen but finally completes the task), check out our suggestions in Knowledge Library article 32440.

I have compiled these instructions from palm site only.Before this you can directly take advantage of the costumer support provided to costumers by palm.

Click here and you can ask them directly through live chat.

So do that before trying anything silly.

Palm lifedrive frozen 'secure erase'

You may be experiecing failure of the microdrive. Those are typical of it failing or having failed.

Having said that have your tried the hard reset buy holding the 5 way down while sliding the power switch? This is slightly different than the older secure but you need the update 2 to have it. This will erase and reformat and reload the entire system a bit more thouroughly than the older secure erase.
It might get you out of the cycle which is more important.

Did a reset...stuck on the

Yes, is the only answer I can offer you as I have the same problem. The best advice I have found is.. replace the hard drive with a new micro drive or flash drive.

Love is... knowing my name is safe in your mouth when I leave the room.
