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!

Pny sdhc card protected


Mini SD cards, or MicroSD cards, are used in digital cameras and portable media players to house digital media files.

MicroSD cards can house anything from 2GB to 32GB of information.
A write-protection feature gives the owner the ability to lock the MicroSD card to keep their files secure.

If you have a MicroSD card that is write-protected, you can un-write-protect it with a flip of a switch.
Insert your MicroSD card into the adapter that came with it.
Put the data side of the MicroSD card into the data side of the adapter.


Look for the write-protection switch on the left side of the SD adapter.
Flip the switch to the side that reads "Off."


Remove the MicroSD card from the adapter and replace it in the device you were using it with.

or you might

Feel along the lower right and left sides of the Micro SD card to find out if it has a built in write protection switch.

Move the switch over to the "On" position to turn on the write protection feature.
Check the front ports on your computer and see if it already has a built in card reading unit.

Purchase an external card reader that plugs into a USB port if your computer does not already have an internal card reader (see below).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=card+reader&x=0&y=0

Plug the card reader into any open USB port on the computer.
Power on the computer and let the operating system finish loading.

Insert the card into the Micro SD slot on the card reader.
Wait for a new window to appear that will ask what action you want to take with the Micro SD card.

Click on the link that says "Open a folder to view files."
Right-click on a file if there is just one specific file you want to enable write protection for.

Click on the "Properties" link from the menu that will pop up.
Navigate to the "General" tab.

Click on the box marked as "Read Only" and then close the Properties window.
Close the window and then double-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop if you want to enable write protection for every file on the Micro SD card.

Right-click on the name of your Micro SD card in the list of computer drives.
Click on "OK" and then close the window.


Click on "Properties" and then navigate to the "Security" tab. Scroll down to the heading labeled as "Permissions."

Click on "Deny" under the "Write" section.

If you a using a card reader that plugs into your PC and it STILL doesn't read from the card, this means that the card itself is defective and needs to replaced. You CAN try using another card reader to see if that helps.

Hope this helps. :)

How to remove write protection from a sandisk hc memory card


Hello Friend,
  • There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  • There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  • The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  • The card has virus: Remove the virus.
  • Change the Usb Port(Recommend you to Use Backside Port)
  • Change the Cable
  • Restart PC
  • Still have Problem Change Card Reader..

Hope this Helped you..Thanks for Contacting FixYa...........

Hi sir
#1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
# 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
# 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
# 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
# 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
# 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

My micro sd card won't be read by my computer anymore


Try to use a different card reader because the error pertains to a bad card reader. You might as well try to plug your card reader to a different computer. If you have no important data on your SD, you can simply reformat the card.

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc with adapter and the computer freezes when i have it in the sd drive.I have a hp pavilion a1 a1203w. Is there anything i can do?? Please Help


I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.
