Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC

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!

Hp back files on card can my computer restore these


The Hx 4700 series and the & The Hx2190 have a removable card Compact Flash or SD Card, if the information you want was stored on these you can buy a USB Card reader from woolies plug the SD or Compact flash into the card reader and plug it into the USB port of your PC or mac and it will be readable (no drivers needed). You may also be interested to know that there are updated ROMS available for this model to update the OS & the Office Apps + increase the max capacity of the storage cards that are recognized.

Use a CF-SD/SDHC adapter and use the CF slot. AMAZON sells it for under $12.00. I am using a 16GB SDHC right now.3_7_2012_7_17_35_pm.jpg

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.

My T-Mobile Dash won't read a 4gb SD card


Most T-Mobile Dash phones will only recognize a 2gb sd card. I've only heard of some 4gb cards working, what type of card do you have? Unfortunately it's probably a compatibility issue and you'll need to get a 2gig scandisk, a 4gb scandisk might work, I'm not sure though.

I just bought a Sandisk SDHC 4GB Card and have taken photo's on it with a digital camera. Having inserting it into my card readers, neither will read the card. I have a 1GB card that they read OK. Why...


It's possible the card is corrupt - I had a similar problem but the chemist where I get my pics developed managed to get them off for me. My card was corrupt and I sent it back and got a refund. Doesn't help when you can't get your pics though. Sorry that's all I can offer.

LG viewty 4 gb memeory card..I accidently formated ths on phone! how do i unformat it?


Hi, I also had this issue.
The solution is on http://communities.sandisk.com/sandisk/board/message?board.id=mobile&message.id=209

You need to google for an app from HP called SP27608.exe.
This will read the card as 4gb and let you reformat it.

Can not detect sd card


Make sure your card is NOT an SDHC. the HX470x only reads standard SD cards. The largest that I have found is 4GB SD (not SDHC)

SD Card issue


Its design not a problem, it will do the samething with a CF card. They probably figured that you would only insert a card into the device if you intended to use it.
