    Has anyone had any experience using the Zire 31 with Windows Vista? At first I was unable to get it to even sync, but setting the HotSync Manager's compatibility to XP SP2 allowed me to back the device up. However, the same thing didn't work for the Quick Install app. So now I have a device that I can back up to my heart's content. I just can't put anything new on to it.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Rod

    CardExport II, CardReader, or a card reader for your PC.

    Drop the program files and databases onto your card, and then copy them to ram, or your launchers directory as needed.

    We've asked Palm about Vista support, and have been told it isn't a high priority until the full, non-beta version of Vista ships.

    That said, I doubt the new Palm Desktop will be out the day after Vista drops, either. Palm needs time to make sure its software works well with the final, non-beta version of the operating system.
