The instructions written by WyreNut also talk about when I am installing the drivers to "direct to the Aceera folder you unpacked the drivers to . . ."  When I clicked on the zipped folder I downloaded it opened and showed me the 5 files I mentioned above.  Do I need to create a separate folder and call it "Aceera" and put some of the files into it?  If I do need to create an "Aceera" folder which files do I need to put in it?


Hi CompDave1, I edited that line to make it a bit clearer.

Re: 64 Bit Windows USB drivers for Palm Desktop

This is seeming a lot more complicated than I can handle.  I have a strong feeling that I am going to lose 15 years of data and there is nothing I can do about it.  I really don't understand why no one on this Forum can seem to remember only a short year ago when this forum published information and a link to a set of drivers that would allow the Palm OS to be sync'ed with the desktop via a Bluetooth connection unless no one here wants to remember.  I really wish I could find the posts here in this Forum about the Bluetooth drivers but I can't.  Oh well!

 

Once I "unpack" the files from the zipped folder do I need to create a separate folder to put them in or can they stay in my Downloads folder along with everything else I have there?  Also, as I stated in my earlier email, there are five filed in the zip folder.  Which one do I point the Palm OS installer to or do I create a folder for the unpacked Aceeca files?

When you Extract the zipped folder a new folder will be created with the same name as the zipped folder. It can stay in in the Downloads folder. The Driver (AceecaUSBDx64.sys) is the only System file in the folder.
Did you open the PDF Driver Install Guide in the folder? It will help with the install

There is no reason for losing data.  If you are concerned, before you do another thing download a freeware app called NVBackup.  Either install it using your old PC, or copy the .prc file to a SD card (1 GB or smaller, regular SD not SDHC), into the /palm/launcher folder on the card.  If you use a new card, format it first in the E2.  Then run NVBackup (if necessary from the copy on the card).  It will make a complete copy of your entire device...apps, data, settings, the works.

WyreNut and I have been reading, helping folks, and moderating the Palm Forums for many years now.  If what you seem to remember reading was posted on the Forums, I'm pretty sure we would know about it.  If it was only a year or so ago, it would have been migrated to these boards from the old Palm home.

 

That said, it is my experience since the move, that the Search function here on our new home seems to miss a lot of stuff.  Unfortunately, the old site has now been completely taken down and redirected to here, so the old site can no longer be searched.

CompDave1 - both myself and smkranz are the experts that were doing all the answering in the old Forum.  Both of us have assured you there are no special BlueTooth drivers to download.

 

Insinuating we are choosing "not to remember" is not a good way to treat folks who are trying to help you...

This is the link I found referring to BlueTooth syncing with Win7. Hopefully it's the one you were thinking of:

Re: 64 Bit Windows USB drivers for Palm Desktop

@ WyreNut, @ smkranz I want to thank both of you for your help and your patience as well as everyone else who posted here trying to help me get my act together and syncing my Palm Pilot with my new Windows 7 64-bit computer.

 

I had to put that project on hold for a few days due to other things going on but when I came back to it I was able to get it working.  It took me three trys and a few tense moments but I finally got a USB hot sync to work and it went fine.

 

@ WyreNut, thanks for posting the old link.  This is exactly what I am thinking about.  My old Desktop was 32-bit WIN 7 and I could do a USB synch fine with no problems but when I bought my laptop it was 64-bit WIN 7 and I had to go the Bluetooth route.  You are right, the Bluetooth is a bit slow but it has always worked and never let me down.

 

Thanks again to everyone for their help and patience and have a great Holiday.

Re: 64 Bit Windows USB drivers for Palm Desktop

Thanks a million, WyreNut!

 

I got a new computer with Widows 8 right before Christmas.  I was going crazy until I found your post re: creating the .bat file in notepad.

 

Prior to that I was unable to "find" my device.

 

Once I followed these additional instructions, I had no problems updating my driver and hot syncing my Tungsten E2.
