The reset didn't cure it, so now you try the hard reset. It should be you press the up button or joystick and then press the button and finally let go of the up button. Check your manual about hard resets.
A hotsync should resync it all.
I can't guess why this happened to you.
i was using my tungsten E listening to music files i had just downloaded on to it w/o problems. i was going through my files, seeing what could be deleted to make room on the pda but all of a sudden a message appeared on the screen "Fatal Alert and in a box the words: MemoryMgr.c,line:3654
then a little button that says reset.
i attempted to turn off the pda- it wont turn off. i have unplugged it from the sync cable and charger cable. the palmone expansion card was been removed (but at this point i cant remember if i removed it before the error or after). i have pushed the little reset button found on the back of the palm, nothing happens except the device resets and the message comes right back. what am i suppose to do? any suggestions? and have i lost everything? and can someone tell me what my mistake was so i dont do it again?
