It sounds like the card may have had corruption on it, or the device itself needs to be reinstalled to factory settings. as far as your information, have you tried to put the card into a PC?

My palm did something similar to this, and it was rectified by resetting it back to factory defaults. hope this helps at all...

Check if a copy of your old files is still on the old card , and make a copy of the old card onto a new one using a computer and a card reader.

To make a copy insert old card in card reader
Open the card.
Chose Select all.
Chose copy.
Paste onto a folder in the computer
Insert new card in the card reader (possibly formatted.
Select all files on computer from old card folder.
Paste files onto new card.

If you have formatted both old and new card there will be no way to recover the files.

Hi!

Try removing the memory card and then see if the touch screen is working or not. Also try taking the battery out and inserting it after 10 minutes.

Putt a toothpick in the hole on the bottom for 15+ seconds to reset the device and see if you still have the same problem.

Please post the results.

SD Card is inserted, but message reads "SD Card blank or has unsupported file system". Can I do anything to remedy this?


Hi jerilee436,
Let's start with easiest thing first... Take out your SD card and re-insert it and see if your phone picks it up. (If you don't already know this is how you locate the SD card: http://www.fixya.com/support/t8475945-g1_memory_card_slot)
If that doesn't work, you can try putting your SD card into a card reader (You may already have one on your computer. However, if you don't ask try asking a friend if they have one OR you can purchase one from here: http://www.amazon.com/Sandisk-MobileMate-Plus-Memory-Reader/dp/B000Q3IUV2). If the card works in your computer try formatting it and putting it back into your phone. Still doesn't work? Try a different SD card in the phone. If that ALSO doesn't work then you likely have a bad card reader in your phone :'( You'll have to call up your cell phone provider and see what they can do from there.
Hope that helps!

Having finally connected my 605 wifi to my tv set up, I cannot for the life of me find how to register my dvr station, that apparantly I must do, so that I can access the tv stations/programmes. I have...


You need to get the Cinema plugin to play .vob, .mpg and .ps files, and the Video Podcast plugin to play mp4, .m4v or .mov files coded in H264



The DVR station is used to record TV shows. Just plug the DVR station to your TV or Cable box or DVD player (you can record DVDs also) and hit record. The Mini dock is used for chraging but you also can connect to your PC with it and playback video to a TV (additional cable needed).

4gb sandisk wont work


The Viewty can (as far as I have been able to find out) only work with up to 2Gb memory - But!!! If you stick the 4Gb card in a card reader / USB adapter and upload enough stuff to it so that there's 2Gb or LESS free space left on the card you can then use it in the Viewty.

The phone can then tell deal with the amount of free space as well as being able to access the stuff you uploaded :)

Read that somewhere & it worked for me.

I have a Archos 605 wifi, and when trying to save a web page to favorites the Archos shuts down and then restarts.


That's a memory error, I can almost guarantee it's an application compatibility issue or corrupted profile settings.You can try reinstalling the browser application, backing up and restoring the system, or reinstalling the system entirely and copy back you contacts, documents, etc.

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.

RESETING PHONE MEMORY


If its your memory card you want to format goto
"Extras > Memory > Options > Format Mem Card"

If it's your phone memory, there isn't a quick way to do this.
To find out whats on your phone memory goto
"Tools > File Manager > Options > Memory details"
But if you don't want to keep anything on your phone, just goto to Fliemanager and delete everything, you should probably do a factory reset as well.

Pocket PC e400 en Sandisk WiFi


I have bought the Bluetooth Option Part for my e400. It was an "PC Bluetooth SD Card2". In the specs of the Bluetooth Card is an SD/IO enabled SD Slot required for the Card. So I think your Wifi will also work.
