My Sony Clie, running PalmOS, has become unusable.
I bought it in Taiwan with an English OS, a few weeks after arriving here - when I knew even less than I do now.
Later I learned that it’s a model only available in Asia, one of their experimental products, that should only have a Chinese OS. The nice man in the shop had somehow installed something I could use, but it’s never been very reliable.
Last year the ‘To do’ list stopped synching. At first, deleted items would re-appear at every hotsynch. I tried deleting them on the desktop first, and then on both the desktop and the handheld. No good. I tried overwriting one with the other. Still no good. Eventually it started to hang whenever I synched, and I had to disable that feature.
This week the date book stopped synching. Everything hung. I tried overwriting the handheld with the desktop, but it hung all the same and after resetting I found that the date book had been mostly deleted on the handheld.
Before I buy a new one, does anyone know if it’s possible to reinstall the OS anyhow?
Also, I’ve lost the manual and can’t remember how to do a hard reset. I just did a soft reset, and noticed that it remembered the date incorrectly - three days out this time.
