It has been well documented on how to get PalmOne’s file manager Files working on devices other than the the Tungsten T5 and the Lifedrive, but it’s been a little harder getting VersaMail to cooperate with Files. With Files installed, if you try to save an attachment to your expansion card with VersaMail, most likely your Palm TX will crash. To stop this from happening, you need to delete two files in your TX’s RAM.

MMSDCARD
MMSDCARD_enUS (or whatever language localization file you have)

You then need to replace those two files with the same files, except from a Treo 680. So install from a Treo 680

MMSDCARD
MMSDCARD_enUS (or whatever language localization file you need)

Soft reset your device, and you now should be able to save attachments to your expansion card through the PalmOne Files interface!

What do you think?

p.s. This works with Files 1.0 and 2.0!

One Response to “Saving VersaMail Attachments to an Expansion Card on a Palm TX with PalmOne “Files””

  1. I have files 2.0 installed. But Versamail does not use it at all. I never experience a crash.

    When I choose save attachment, files does not come up. The built in/default save to device / save to card comes up if its a pictures, but I can only choose the album. If the accachment is of another type, then only save to card option is available, and I cannot choose where it goes. And in most cases I wont know where it goes. But prc usually goes under the launcher, (each file type seems to have its own specific folder). If its an uknown attachment type, then clicking save to card does nothing. Usually when the file is saved it will say its finished being saved except when the file is unknown.

    Now, documents2go will use files, versamail will use files when browsing for a file to attach. Blazer uses files to opena file, but clicking that will cause a reset.

    I can’t figure out whats wrong. Tried both files 1.0 and 2.0.
