DVD movies in lifedrive

As soon as I got the device I was eager to copy DVD's onto it, and very quickly bought a 1gb SD card, MMPlayer and Pocket DVD Studio. So far I have had little success with moving a complete movie onto the device. (Of course, this could well be because of my settings). Does anyone have any experience with this software? Any other pointers as to how to copy a complete movie from DVD to the device?

Re: DVD movies in lifedrive

I am a hardcore video watcher (that does not sound right -- I watch video's everyday -- get your mind out of the gutter). Personally I prefer TCMP player over MM player. I do not use PocketDivx as I usually watch programs capture from a TV card or “obtained” over the internet. I do reformat with Virtualdub.

Docs and media onto a LifeDrive with Vista


The problem is that the Palm desktop sfotware that works with the LD doesn't work well with vista so you need to do things a bit differently.

I copy files to sdcards if they are say movies or music in otherwords big or lots of files as it is faster. If I want to copy my documents to the ld hardrive simply plug the LD into the usb data cable and then turn on drive mode. Vista will now recognize your ld as just another flash drive or usb drive device. Copy the files to the hardrive or even the sdcard if its in the slot. You can create your own directories in either place so it is easy to know where your files are.

LifeDrive will not recognize SD expansion card


If the sdcard is the right type and size all you need to do is fully insert it into the slot. Its spring loaded so it will pop up if it isn't quite far enough in. It should only fit one way.

Generally the LD likes 2gb and smaller sdcards , it can use bigger such as 4gb but that's when you can be hit or miss. That depends on brand and sd version.If you search for a list of LD compatible sd cards you should find out what card to use or buy.

1st approach (Quick one!)

1. Soft reset your device
2. make a backup copy of the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA if exists.
3. delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA.
4. Soft reset your device once again.


2nd approach (Long one!)

If 1st approach did not work, restore the MSMETADATA folder and try the following:

Step Zero: BACKUP
- Make a full backup of your device (including storage cards). If you don't like to do a full backup keep at least a backup of all files and folders we are going to delete as indicated below:

Step One
-In the main device directory delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the \Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ directory and all of
the files in it including the WMDRM folder.
-Delete the \Music folder

Step Two
-Go to your SD card main directory and delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\WMDRM
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\Music

Step Three
-Repeat step two for any other storage cards.

Step Four
-Refresh devices in WMP and the storages card should show up in the left tab
and in the sync window you can click "Next Device"

Hope this helps...

HC SD card support for pocket pc


Hi,

Unfortunately, Pocket PC devices with Windows Mobile 2003 OS do not support High Capacity SD (SDHC standard) cards.

However, some companies have created standard SD cards (Not SDHC) with capacities up to 4GB. These, sometimes, not always, work.

I would recommend you to purchase SD cards up to 2GB in size only which is the maximum size the SD standard has defined. If you would like to try the max capacity you can get, you can try some "SD standard extended, but not SDHC" SD cards up to 4GB. If you would like brand names, I could recommend you a few..

Dimitris.

HP iPaq Rx3115 ...Please Help..


It depends what quality you need. If you need top quality you will have to go for something else like a dell axim x50v. This PDA should be ok for watching a movie as long as it is encoded properly, at a low resolution that is.

Copy files.


Best way, especially if you have a lot or if they're large (like music or movies), is with a USB card reader connected to your PC.

Lot of trouble


Some of my thoughts to share: 1) It detects SD and mini-SD. To view > Program > File Explorer > My Device 2) To save attachments on storage. Press the Mail shortcut button > Tools > Options > Storage > Tick Store attachments on storage cards 3) Screen is well protected by the flip cover 4) Back is made of anti-scratch materials
