HotSync Timeout Errors

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


Does your Palm timeout when you are HotSyncing lots of data?

This How-To Article shows you how to fix this error.

HotSync Timeout Errors

1. Open the HotSync application. (Tap it from the Applications screen; don't press the HotSync button on the cradle.)

2. Hold down the up and down scroll buttons of your Palm.

3. Keeping the buttons still pressed, tap the far upper-right corner of the screen.

Tip: Be sure that you tap the upper-right corner of your screen, as close to the edge of the screen as possible.

4. A message saying "DLServer Wait Forever is ON" will appear.

5. Release the scroll buttons.

6. Tap OK.

7. While you are still in the HotSync application, place your Palm on the cradle, and press the HotSync button.

Tip: This feature will be disabled after you power-off your Palm, or after you perform a HotSync. You will need to activate each time that you receive a "timeout" error.
