Setup the Palm Desktop for Windows 7 & Vista  following these instructions:

  2. Download and install the Vista/Windows 7 Compatible Palm Desktop Software from Palm's Website. > Download Palm Desktop 6.2   If you have any problems visit the palm support site    Palm Desktop Product Support 
  3. If you have Windows 7 32 bit you should be able to Hotsync now.  If you have 64 bit then continue.

  2. Right click on the zip file you downloaded and press Unpack ("Extract" or "unzip") the Aceeca drivers. 
    Remember the location of this folder you unpacked them to as you will be needing it later on in this install routine.
  3. Try to HotSync your device.  It will fail.
  4. Open the Device Manager (click Start and type in "Device", then run the Device manager)
  5. In the Device Manager look for the Yellow Triangle next to Palm Device under "Other devices".
  6. Right-click on the device, and choose "Update Driver Software".
  7. Choose "Browse My Computer for Software" and direct it to the Aceeca folder you unpacked the drivers to.
  8. Choose "Next" at the driver file location window, and then tell it to "Always trust software from Aceeca Ltd." then click the "Install" button.
  9. You may receive an error message  "The drivers were installed but the device couldn't be opened." 
  10. Now, press the Hotsync button and it should work!
