Please don't let me lose all of my phone numbers, datebook, project filing, etc... (You need not be treo-conversant to answer this, but it might help a little.)

So my treo 600 dies. Long story.
Then, literally the next day, the motherboard on my laptop (dell inspiron 5100) is fried. (And I'm in rural Missouri to record a podcast, but that's neither here nor there.)
A week later, I'm able to transfer to a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite, and I get a drive-caddy to retrieve the hard-drive of the old laptop, including the handspring files. I purchase a new treo 650, and install the CD, thinking that I'll just be able to simply import the old addresses, etc.
There's a problem. Not only is the format not correct (the old address, dates, etc. are all .dat files and I need .dba or .vcs files), but, even though the file is on an external drive, the old Palm program, when I try to open it, begins with the program screen of the new palm one software, then says "Error: Invalid Configration. Terminating the Palm Desktop."
I really, REALLY don't want to lose all of my old addresses and phone numbers and project filing...what do I do now?
