Importing data from Palm

As a long time Palm user, I've made the switch.

I'm having problems importing the files from the Palm Treeo.

The Desktop Manager software has a module that implies an easy transfer but the software must have bugs because the devices are not recognized.

Anybody help?

Re: Importing data from Palm

I had the same problem.  The version of the Palm Desktop I had was too new.  I had version 4.2 to start with, I upgraded to 6.2 and it still did not work.  I finally found in the Blackberry Desktop Manager where it listed the versions of Palm Desktop that would work.  The latest was version 4.1.  Fortunately Palm had links to older versions.  I installed Palm version 4.1 and it worked.  The first time I tried to transfer the data it locked up on the calendar events.  I deleted a daily reminder I had in my Palm and everything transferred over OK.
