My compaq ipaq h3970 won't recofnise a SDHC 4gb card - any ideas?


The card may require formatting to suit your device.
Windows>Tools>Format Card.
Note: Formatting will erase all info.

New cards can be faulty and also double check it is inserted correctly and fully clicked into position.

Just bought 4GB SD card that hx4700 does not recognise - help pse


Your slot in the iPAQ is a SD slot, not a SDHC slot - therefore it will not read the card. Your PC card is probably a dual reader. The SD cards look the same but are different. Have a read of this...

SD card failure...Help!


Have you tried resetting the iPAQ? I would remove the SD card and perform a soft reset (the little hole on the bottom) then re-insert the SD card and see if it detects. Give it a try and let me know what happens.

H3970 wont load


Hi, Have you performed a full reset rather than the normal reset? It might help but you will loss any settings you have so be warned. Procedure as follows: 1. Press and hold the two outer buttons on the bottom of your iPAQ. 2. While holding down those buttons, use the stylus to press the reset switch for at least five seconds. The screen will go blank. 3. Connect the iPAQ Pocket PC to the AC adapter. 4. Run through the Setup Wizard to reestablish system and calibration settings. I hope this helps,
