Found two shell scripts that allowed me to take an earlier backup and restore it.

Here inline are the two script contents 

For backup
sudo pilot-xfer  -p /dev/ttyUSB1 -b $HOME/jpilot/backup

For restore
sudo pilot-xfer  -p /dev/ttyUSB1 -r $HOME/jpilot/backup

I jpilot does not work for you  put this file into /etc/udev/rules.d 

name of file is 10-visor.rules  

content is:

BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld*", KERNEL=="ttyUSB[13579]",SYMLINK+="pilot"

(as a single line)

And if it still does not work...
Add one line to the bottom of the following file.


/sbin/modprobe --firsttime visor
