Treo Import Unsuccessful

-Back up of Zire 72 data Successful.

-Installation of Treo Software Successful.

-Import of data to Treo, has errors.
Compatible Applications Transfered. But Calendar, Memo Pad and Contacts not transferred.

It says some data failed to transfer to SD Card.

My guess is…

On my Zire, I have a 64MB SD Card with some data on it. Maybe also the data is trying ot be copied onto the SD of the Treo and the Treo has no SD right now.

Will first try to move applications from SD card to Zire Memory, and leave data files in the SD Card. Do a back, install Treo Software, and import to Treo. If that does not work… I might but a new SD card. If that does not work either, the applications are not important. The calendar, memo and contacts are. I’ll install MS Outlook, synchronize Zire to that, then uninstall Palm Desktop for Zire. Install Palm Desktop for Treo and synchronize with MS Outlook. If successful, uninstall Outlook after that. A long process, but if it is the only way to save all the information, I have to face it then.

Palm Treo 600 Switch

Yeah just received mine a few days ago. My first experience with Palm was with a Palm m100, then Palm IIIxe, then Palm Zire 72, and now a Palm Treo 600.

I jusr like the PalmOS compared to Windows CE on PocketPCs and SmartPhones. A lot just fits so much in PalmOS that sometimes will not fit even a simple Microsoft Word Document. Being a fan of the PalmOS, if ever I wanted a SmartPhone, it would be PalmOS powered and not Windows CE.

My I had before the Treo was a Nokia 6600 as my phone and Palm Zire 72 as my PDA which is fine. But they are two things and at least I can have them combined now in the Treo 600.

Problem now is the switching from my Palm Zire 72 to Palm Treo 600. My first attempt did not go on well.

After synchronizing my Zire 72 with my laptop, then installing the Treo Updates on my laptop, then synchronizing it again with my Treo, instead of transfering everything to the Treo, the Treo transferred things to the laptop too, so the calendar was deleted as well as the contacts and everything. Good thing all data was still in my Zire 72.

I uninstalled everything and is currently trying to do it again. I will Install Zire’s Palm Desktop, synchorize and back up. Update to Treo’s Palm Desktop, and check if data was imported. Then Synchronize again to Treo.

Hope everything works. 🙂
