Trying the Beta fix and having a winzip error
by SaltyLady / October 30, 2007 6:48 AM PDT

The Beta fix is compressed and did not self-extract. I tried downloading "WINZIP but received an error message that it was not a 32 bit file. So at this point, I can't open or run the file unless someone can tell me how. I am not particularly skilled in computer tech. (smile)

palm desktop...Vista
by damond64 / December 5, 2007 10:15 AM PST

I have a vista machine, and when I got my new palm device, I downloaded the cd that came with the phone. So far everything has worked out well, it's been nearly 3 months. I'm not sure what type of problems people are having, but I certainly have been running along just fine, sync is not an issue at all either..

Is it....

Perhaps a Treo or Centro? If so, Palm may have different software versions for them. The problem seems to be in the syncing for some Vista users.

Zire 71
by beccarene / November 13, 2009 3:08 AM PST

I have a zire 71 and I now have Microsoft Vista, is there anyway to set up the desk top and hotsync for my Zire? I have tried downloading from the computer and although it installs, it does not connect to the zire, cannot sync. If I can't fix this, what is the best PDA (not phone) that works with Vista?

It syncs fine with the hard to find RS232 sync cable. NO, I have not tried this one on USB.

Hi, thanks for the info. I am confused though. I found the RS232 on internet easily. Is there something I am missing?

The answer must be yes.

I find many don't know to enable hotsync to hotsync over COM1 or such. If they ask how, they didn't look at the hotsync configuration?
