Are you trying to use two different PDAs with the same PalmDesktop? That will be a problem. I switched from Palm to Clie and back to Palm, and their drivers are NOT compatible - even though they are basically the same software. Stupid, I know.

At least now I can have two different Palm Desktops - one for my Clie and one for my T3. It's working for me right now. I would make backup files of everything before you load the new Desktop. You could lose all your data/programs if you don't. I learned that the first time.

The data is not a problem. I have used 2 pda on the same machine with no problem keeping the data separate. I loaded the palm first. It has worked great for a year. Then I recently installed the clie and the palm wouldn't sync, like the drivers are incompatable.
