Yeah fair enough its just the software that I ahve collected over the last few years (loads of freeware and purchased software) is for palm so I'm sticking with its OS for the mean time and there isnt too much that You guys can do that I can't and vice versa (cept my nice and stable OS :P ) but you cna get the best of both worlds as there is a pice of software called styletap or something like it that creates a virtual Palm os on your smartphones and you can run palm OS software now thats the prog for you guys !

Just purchased a Palm Life Drive and my partner a T5.  We are looking for someone who can show us all the bobs and whistles with these great little devices.  If you want to spend a morning sitting in the garden at Piha, drinking coffee , eating muffins and having a laugh  while you teach us how to use these we would love to hear from you.

As much as i would want to not only would it be a bit odd just piha is too far for me! Just simply read thepdf that came with it it si surprisingly very useful!

True but at least you dont have problems with nvfs like us newer palm owners do (basically it uses memory that keeps info when the battery runs flat BUT that creates loads more problems!

Check out www.atomiclearning.com/palm for some good basic tutorials.


And Modnar, what Model have you got - the NVFS bugs were pretty much worked out a month after the T5 with a patch release. Then most the problems were due to lazy programming anyhow :-)

A Palm TX (possibly the last Palm none phone handheld ever!!) It came out end of 2005 and I got mine under a month ago and mine was made on the 17th of november.

The problem with my model is taht the actual non-nvfs memory is smaller than the lifedrive or the t5 (to save costs but at elast I get wifi built in :D ) and being Garnet (palm OS 5.4+) it puts a lot more pressure on the device when it is running more than average apps such as emulators or blazer web browser! There are slight ways to get around it with hacks and the sort like that but hacks tend to make it more dangerous IMO.

Thanks for the responses.  That atomiclearning site is very easy to follow. 

I am having a problem getting the wireless connection to work.  We have wireless here, but although it finds our site, it cant connect.  We have a Wireless - G and I am wondering if I have to set it to G & B???  Do I have to configure anything on the LifeDrive itself?

Thanks,

Yes, make sure you set the wireless router for B and G. Most PDAs are 802.11b only.

Woah thats some palm history right there!

As far as your wifi probs go bvalley girl basically the probs you may have are either not enough signal (too far away from your wireless or too many things right in the way of it) or security problems (e.g. your router has a wep security key needed for people to connect and you have to add that on your palm by clicking configure in the scan list sorry I dont quite know as I have a tx and that has been upgraded for enterprise security so it is slightly different to other peoples way of doing it) basically find out the way that your router has its security and go from there (post general info here no personal info here please!!!). Also wpa-psk wep key and open are the only availible methods for the livedrive as far as I know.

Whoops, sorry about mentioning anything personal.  I am new to this and as you can see dont think very technically.

Anyway,  I have tried everything to get wireless on the LifeDrive.  It searches for our IP address, then it drops that and goes to Linksys_SES_51578...connecting.  Then it says failed to connect.  Any other suggestions. 
Could it be something to do with the Dynalink router we have as well?

By personal I meant your wifi access points name  (like above but oh well :P )or anything that links back to you. But anything esle is fine really.

From your description it sounds like you are mainly having problems with security (still could be signal but more unlikely now just stand next to the wifi access point to try it) if that happens again its security and you may have either a password (in wep or wpapsk) or mac adress filtering (only allowing decive specific id to connect) the only way to find out is to see how your computers connect to it (non cable ones).

The worst case senarion (unlikely though but it does happen!) is that someone has hacked your access point and passowrded you out in the wifi and the security on the access point and in that case you would need to do a hard reset on it BUT check with the helpline first!

Just keep posting if any issues!
