when i insert an SD card into the slot, it says that it's in use but the memory isn't woring, i've tried ressetig too, but no luck. By the way it's spring like mechanism when trying to insert a SD card doesn't work.
When i compared the slot with that of a Dell Axim x51v pda, i found that the left most pin (that is slightly upper) is rounded down.
i know it's strange, but sometime ago i tried to insert some cards with pressure, it may be the reason.
i wanted to know that is it possible for me that i repaire it myself, cause there are no autherized agencies around.
Thanks in advance

Re: broken SD slot
Its possible to take it apart and perhaps fix it, however, the real challenge will be not causing more damage than already exists. So the question is do you need the SD slot working bad enough to risk the entire unit? I wouldn?t recommend disassembling a handheld PC unless you have the tools and the experience working with delicate electronics in tight spaces.
If you want to pursue the disassembly process let us know.

Well I?ve been poking around and here are the facts I?ve found:
-The largest SD memory card HP lists as an accessory is a 2GB card.
-The actual specifications sheet states the SD slot supports SD, SDIO and MMC but makes no mention of any size limitation.
My suspicion based on my own personal use of HP hand held PCs is that it will probably accommodate your GB SD memory card. In my own personal experience is that the devices list as accessories only those memory cards that were prevalent at the time the PC was released. So even though the HP site only lists 2GB as the largest its only because the larger cards didn?t exist in the marketplace at the time so it really isn?t any kind of indicator. To me the specifications sheet is the ultimate reference and it doesn?t make note of any type of imitation.
If you are still apprehensive buy the memory from a mail order house like TigerDirect and tell them you want a 4GB SD module for an HP H2210 PocketPC. If it doesn?t work you can return it for a full credit.

Problems inserting expansion cards, or keeping them in your device, may have a simple solution. Try these first:
* Make sure the expansion card is facing the correct way. See the handbook for your device for illustrations.
* Expansion cards do not fit into the slot if not oriented properly. If a MultiMediaCard (MMC) slides all the way through, it does not operate correctly. Make sure to fit cards carefully in the slot.
* The mechanism of the expansion slot is called "push-push." Much like a glass cabinet door, you push to insert the card, and then push it in again to get the mechanism to release. Expansion cards do not need to be forced out of the expansion slot.
* Though most expansion cards are notched at the top for removal with a fingernail or other such object, removing the card this away may damage the mechanism. Use an object only when a push fails to release the card. Please be aware that you could damage your handheld if you remove a card improperly, or insert objects other than expansion cards into the slot.
* Expansion slots damaged by forced removal of the card do not release the card when pushed, and could refuse to ?lock? the card in the slot. Expansion slot damage can only be repaired by having the entire handheld serviced.
* Some expansion cards labeled as SD or MMC do not actually conform to the SD or MMC specification.
