My palm Life Drive

Okay you know this is about my palm lifedrive. It's not really working any more and i wanted to see about doing a massive overhaul like trying to get a huge 500 gb from a laptop or something i know i will probably need a whole new set up but i'm up for the challenge please email me if you have any ideas?

Re: My palm Life Drive

Welcome to MTR, Blackldr.

Unfortunately, the LifeDrive will only accept a 4 GB drive, and even with the right size replacement drive, you have to follow some very complicated steps for the LifeDrive to boot from the replacement. You can see a step-by-step guide here.

I used to be a fan of the Palm OS, and I understand why many people are so loyal to it. Nonetheless, attempting to overhaul your LifeDrive will require you to pour lots of money into a final product that won't be nearly as capable as newer devices (like the iPad ) and may not even work at all if anything goes wrong during the upgrade. Palm OS devices were never designed to be "overhaulable," so I'm sorry but the smartest choice by far would be to move on to a different product.

If you could provide more info about what specific characteristics and abilities you are looking to achieve, we could make some recommendations about what might work well for you.

Re: My palm Life Drive

If you are looking to get another Lifedrive, I have one that is almost brand new. I have the Lifedrive, sync and power cables, and leather case it came with. I bought it new at Staples a while back, then switched jobs and never used it again. It is in excellent cosmetic condition and perfect working condition. I don't have the original software, but as you know it is all still on the Palm website. Email me if you're interested bmbiehler@rocketmail.com
