Make sure you got same model/type for both of the memory modules.
Also they must have same clock even most of the time you can still install different clocked modules (but both will works at the lowest clock of one of the modules).

But it will not hurt if you try this :

  1. Try to install the first module on your notebook memory slot 1, turn on your notebook and see if the modules can be detected.
  2. Try to install the other module on your notebook memory slot 1, turn on your notebook and see if the modules can be detected.
If your notebook reads both of the modules it means both of your modules are ok and your notebook slot 1 is OK. Repeat the step above in your notebook memory slot 2 to make sure slot 2 is OK too.

Now to eliminate problems, clean up your memory module's copper contact.
Next install both of the modules in each memory slot on your notebook and see if the modules can be detected.
If it's still not works, try to switch the modules position each other in your notebook slot and again turn on the computer to see if it works.

If it's not working then it's most likely that your modules aren't compatible each other.

Hi,

This is because there is a fault in the slot where you put the memory card.
The problem is the memory card contact surface in not in contact with the memory card reader contact surfcae.

So please change the memory card reader it wil be fine.

Thanx

Memory card not recognised


The P850 is specified to use SD cards, not SDHC cards. SD cards max out at 2GB.

Internal Memory is full


Your camera should automatically recognise when a memory card is inserted and store pictures on to that rather than use the internal memory. The internal memory is only used when no card is inserted so possibly there is a fault with the card connections if it does not recognise when it is inserted.
To clear the internal memory have a look at my post on my tips page on my profile dealing with this.

External memory - sd card recognition on pc??


if it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver
