Why does the Palm Centro save my files as .php files?

Time:October 11
Advertisement
Okay so I've been trying to download files from the internet and save them on my Centro. When I click on the link to download it, it shows the file as a .doc file which is good because it's a microsoft word file. but then when I actually click "Save", the file changes to "download.php" and I can't open the .php file on my Centro. So my question is, Why does the .doc file change to the .php file? And more importantly, how can I save the .doc file without it changing to .php?

Hi.. Welcome to the Palm forums.  Any Palm device is going to convert any file saved to it to the format it needs to be able to read it.  For .doc files, word documents, you need docs to go which comes with your centro for free. Docs to go 10 is required for office 2007 and is available free for a centro, go to www.palm.com/us/support  select downloads under support & downloads then select a centro and you will see a link for bonus software on your cd.  Find docs to go, download it to your computer and install.  Then sync which will update and/or install docs to go 10 on your computer and your centro.  Once that is accomplished if you want to put a office file on you centro you open docs to go on your computer, add in the office file and sync.  After that if you update the file either on the centro or on the computer then sync both files will end up the same after the sync.
