Got my palm today can't hotsync!!! HELP

  1. I feel so dumb to say the least! I charged it, ran the cd, plugged in the hotsync cable. I pushed the button on the cable & it said it went through. I then looked on my palm not a thing there that I tried to load. I have tried #'s times....any suggestions? I do have vista & I went to palm website & downloaded to take care of that. Unless I am not looking in the right place (applications)....there is nothing loading. I have the Tungsten e2. Thanks so much for your help!bowingpur:bowingpur

    I'm not very tech-saavy, so forgive me if this is a dumb question, but do you have the hot sync cable and a little skinny cable plugged in at the same time before you try to sync them? That is how mine works.

    I am not tech savvy either so....no question, remark is dumb to me! I just have a hotsync cable...one end plugs into computer & other end into palm. It keeps saying completed??????

    I only have one other cord that charges it. Thanks!

    That's probably the one. I plug them in at the same time to sync. Did you try that?

    Ah, that's too bad. Maybe you can look at one of the links appearing on the bottom of your thread for more suggestions.

    Good luck. You'll love it once you get it figured out.

    Make sure vista isn't interfering with syncing

    Thank you, I downloaded the program that palm has to take care of that to no avail! It just keeps saying completed & no error messages????? Then when I look on the palm my info has not transferred. I am lost :uhoh21:

    Restart your computer.

    Yup, I know, sounds stupid, but for some reason I have to do this every day before my Palm will HotSync.

    I know I have done this about 15 times!!!! I downloaded software from palm....it says sync successful, but on my palm all I have is titles like applications,music, web, bluetooth, memos, calc,
    quick tour,expense,calendar, contacts, tasks, & notepad. Is this what it is suppsto have on it, until you add other stuff?????.......I know this sounds stupid, but I don't know. I opened the synch icon & it had a place to add things..... would this be where you download things to your desktop....move it here...then sync to your palm??? Thank you so much!
