Figure 1—Palm Hot Sync Manager on Windows 2000, showing Infra Red menu option Figure 2—Palm OS Hot Sync to Infrared On the Palm OS device itself, in the Hot Sync application chose “Local” then “IR to a PC/Handheld” and then hit the Hot Sync icon.This support uses the Ir DA Ir COMM protocol and exists in Palm OS version 3.3 and later, if you have an earlier version you will need to upgrade, see Question 4.Palm have added Ir DA (over Ir COMM) support to Hot Sync Manager, this adds a “Infrared” item to the menu alongside “Local”, “Modem” etc for Windows 2000 and XP.It can be downloaded from the Palm support site at .However, it appears that selecting “Off” sometimes does not take immediate effect and that a (soft) reset is sometimes needed.

Secondly the “IR to a PC/Handheld” Connection definition can become corrupted.This allows the Hot Sync application to gain sole access to the Ir DA library and stops the Beam Receive functionality from interfering.As long as you get the two devices in range with 30 seconds of hitting the Hot Sync button, the connection will be made.The connection between your computer and the desktop could not be established. That means that either the Palm can’t find the PC hosting the infrared Hot Sync application, or that the Hot Sync application on the PC isn’t responding to the infrared Hot Sync requests.More technically, this can be due to there being no Ir DA peer found, or an Ir DA peer is found but it is not providing the Ir COMM service, or the Ir COMM service is running on the peer but Hot Sync Manager is not responding on it etc.

Note, on the PC one has to disable the “Image Transfer” functionality of “Wireless Link” and stop any other programs that operate in the same way e.g. The option in the Wireless Link Control Panel applet is shown in Figure 3; disabled is the default in Windows XP.
