How can I get my old Palm Vx previously synced to an old Windows 98 computer with Palm OS v3.01 to sync to a new Dell computer operating on WinXP with downloaded Palm Desktop version 4.1.04? When I press the hotsync button on my cradle with the Palm Vx handheld I received the following message that the sync failed because “HotSync Problem: The connection between your handheld computer and the desktop could not be established. Please check your setup and try again.” I confirmed direct serial port hookup and entered the same user name on my new XP computer as on my old computer. What should I do to correct this problem? My Palm handheld and old computer synced fine just prior to my moving the cradle and serial port to my new XP with the latest Palm 4.1.04 Palm desktop downloaded. Ultimately I want to switch my Palm desktop to Outlook to I can than switch from the Palm Vx to a new Dell Axim x50v.
Judy, this is a "Palm-size PC" forum, not a "Palm" forum. I'm sorry, but are you confused about the nature of this discussion site? There are no forums anywhere on CEWindows.NET dedicated to Palm OS devices, period.
I'd recommend going to somewhere like PalmCentral or the Palm area of Brighthand.com to find answers. Of course, like I said to you elsewhere, there is always a small chance that someone here has used a Palm... Sorry if this is coming across as mean-spirited. I really am trying to help direct you towards answers, but have no Palm knowledge myself, and have rarely seen any displayed among our members.
