Windows 7 and Vista hotsync instructions here

I loaded Palm 6 version software onto the Windows 7 machine

 

then took an export of both calendar and contact info from the handheld PDA and imported into the palm 6 software

 

I now have both functions on the Windows 7 platform computer

 

it won't sync with the handheld, but I kept all my info even tho it is only available on the laptop

 

guess the PDA is junk

Kate,

 

You should be ok with Palm Desktop 6.2 and the palmhotsyncsetup from www.PimlicoSoftware.com. You will need to setup the Bluetooth hotsync. There is no need to do a virtual setup of any kind with Palm Desktop 6.2 or your Bluetooth hotsync.

Thanks for that speedy answer.  I'll give it a try, as you describe.

Windows 7 and Vista hotsync instructions here

thepoeta15,

 

One question from my first post, the answer to which isn't completely clear to me yet.....once I've set things up the way you describe, will I still be able to also continue to hotsync my palm with the old Win 98 computer running V.4.1.2 Desktop, given that my Palm OS stays the same?  It seems logical that I'd be able to, but because the Palm info on 6.2 doesn't specify that it's can run in a Win 98 operating system, I thought I'd better confirm the point....

 

Thank you

Kate,

 

You can still sync to the windows 98 PC as long as you keep the Palm Desktop 4.1.2 software on it. The newer software will not work on that PC. Keep in mind as long as you are syncing to two PC's you do risk corruption of your data.

Windows 7 and Vista hotsync instructions here

Hi thepoeta15,

 

I purchased the Bluetooth adapter and it installed okay.  I got the Tungsten T5 and the Computer to recognize one another however I've had tons of unsuccessful attempts with the hot sync operation.   The desktop palm program HotSync set up requires a port.  I've tried entering different COM ports but this doesn't work (having tried COM1 thru COM5).  What is going wrong?  Are these COM ports obsolete with Windows 7?   I keep searching for direction and have once again lost my way...   Can you help me once again?

 

With much appreciation,

daileyk

I am unable to sync my Zire 31 with windows 7 (64 bit). I have an USB/IR adapter and my computer recognizes the presence of the Palm device. However, no hotsync connection is made. I notice that setup is looking for a serial port (COM3) and provides no other choices. Is this the source of my problem? What do I do for it?

Kate,

 

Sorry I didn't explain. My experience with users that sync with multiple computers. It happens often enough to warn against it but some users don't have a problem with it. You may fall into the latter category. Since you want to protect your data I do suggest backups from Palm Desktop. You can export your Contacts, and Calendar by click on either one contacts or calendar then go to file and export. Pick a place to save your data to in the top box and be sure to click all in the bottom. Then name the file Contacts for Contacts and Calendar for Calendar. But include the date of the backup. Such as 011110<-- Today's date. This way if anything happens, PC crashes, data corruption any other reason you will have your data backed up and can import it back in.

 

If you have more questions please post back.

daileyk,

 

Bluetooth hotsync does not require Com ports. Please look at this KB: http://kb.palm.com/wps/portal/kb/common/article/49229_en.html
