Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC

3 Answers

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

I have just bought a 4GB SD card and all-in-1 reader. My PC reads and writes to the SD card through the USB port with no problem. But when inserted into my iPAQ hx4700 the card does not show up in assets, memory > storage card, etc.

Any ideas? I see from this forum that 1GB works fine but I did not read the forum before buying the card (yes, I know that was dum).

    Thanks for such a quick response Solo4665. I have no idea if the 4GB card is SDHC but your explanation (+ wikipedia info) would suggest that it is.

    Should I get a true SD card and if so can I use a 4GB one? In other words, is there a limit on the SD card capacity that my hx4700 will handle?

    It must be the same product you are referring to since I purchased mine about the 1st week in Dec .......4gb for $10. Should have guessed it was too good to be true. I just realize that it is HDSC. It works in my Kodak camera but I get an "memory card error, card locked" message when inserted in my Canon Camera

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...

    HP don't specify a limit on their specifications for the product, so a 4GB SD card (not 4GB SDHC) should in theory work, unless there is a hidden specification somewhere. (The HP website specs were published before the SDHC standard came out)

Officially the largest SD card is 2Gb but there are some unofficial ones floating around on ebay etc that are 4Gb and not SDHC. They work in an hx4700.
My advice would be to get a "folding" SD so that you can use it in both your PDA and a USB jack...very handy!

My new 4gb sd card does not register on storage display, and does not seem available to use


The official oprating systems of the HX4700, WM2003 and WM5, do not support SDHC card format. Since most 4Gb "SD" cards are in SDHC format (check the label on your card), the file format of your card is likely to be incompatible with the PDA. Get a 2Gb SD card, or go for a Compactflash card for 4Gb to 32Gb of storage space.

if on the card it is written SDHC then it means that the card reader doesn't support SDHC cards, for 100% compatibility try a 2/4 Gb card with only SD markings on it not SDHC.

SD Card in Nikon F10 not recognised by XP


It could be one of two problems. The most likely is that the card reader you are using cannot read SDHC cards, of which all 4GB and larger cards are. Try using the camera's cable to download to your computer directly to the USB port. I bet you'll find that it works that way. The other problem could be (but not likely) that you are shooting on the RAW file format, instead of the jpeg file format. Most software cannot recognize RAW files, but jpeg is pretty universal.

Memory card not recognised


I think that because it is SD HC, You wont be able to use it. This is caused because your camera is old, and the card reader on your camera is not SD HC.

Card reader can't read 4GB SD card, smaller one's (2GB)he can read


Your card reader probably cant read HC cards. Any of the newer cards 4GB and above is considered HC: High Capacity and only the newer card readers can read that. Same thing goes with older cameras. 2GB would be the max for older cameras that dont support HC and card readers that dont support it.

JENSEN VM9512 SD SLOT PROBLEM


Hello,
I don't have this unit but I have this problem with another unit. Problem when unit read only 1-4GB SD without this symbols HC because this cards which have HC is high speed storage and need high speed storage readers or this unit need new upgrade to read SDHC and I think upgrade is not possible for this unit. You need to use only standard SD 1-4GB cards. Or you can ask service or upgrade is possible.
I hope I help :)

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards


this is from CNET:

"SD and SDHC compliance
If your computer's internal card reader works with 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the computer's internal reader is not SDHC compliant.

This same logic also applies to digital cameras, if the digital camera reads 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the digital camera is not SDHC compliant.

SD and SDHC specifications
The initial SD card specification defined the interface for cards only up to 2GB capacity. The subsequent SDHC specification was developed to provide increased capacity of 4GB - 32GB cards. Computers and other products purchased before 2008 may not be SDHC compatible. Computers and other products purchased before 2007 are not SDHC compatible.

Verifying the card reader slot
If the card reader slot on your computer does not have the SDHC logo, it is most likely not SDHC compatible and will only read cards up to 2GB capacity.


Other options you can use to read files on your SDHC card
If your computer's card reader is not SDHC compatible, you have 3 options available:

1. You can connect your camera (or other device) that works with SDHC to your computer using a USB cable that came with the camera. You should be able to transfer files to the computer this way.

2. You can contact you computer manufacturer to see if they have a free firmware update for your model that will make it SDHC compatible

3. You can buy inexpensive SanDisk SDHC card readers that will connect to your computer's USB port."

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card


I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out Wikipedia.org for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.
