I've got a Palm Centro and would like to sync all its content to Palm Desktop or similar programme. Is there any enthusiasts site or any software which can help with that?

(It is ridiculous that these days there is no good analogue to Palm Desktop on any platform).



The last ever version of Palm Desktop for Mac [4.2.2] was released in 2008 - though 4.2.1 is more common, & still available if you look around - https://palm-desktop.en.softonic.com/palm though I haven't run the Mac version in a long time, so compatibility might be suspect.

I've found it's simpler to use a VM of Windows 7 & install to that - though my Palm iQue 360 installer now fails on anything other than a backup restored drive, as the associated internet app downloader points to nowhere.

It's not hugely surprising that software for something that hasn't been manufactured in 8 or so years is not easy to obtain or run.

  • could you please elaborate how one can run a W7 VM on the Mac? – Ilan Nov 25 '16 at 5:11
  • That's really a whole different question, but I use Parallels – Tetsujin Nov 25 '16 at 7:15
  • If you're looking for a cheaper VM option, VirtualBox is free, though you still need a Windows licence of course. – calum_b Nov 25 '16 at 10:23

Late answer, but I personally use Sync Buddy on my current Macs running Mojave. It doesn’t replace Palm Desktop but is perfect to install apps, get data and retrieve data.
