    Have had no problem with my HP 6110 printer. Was working great, then it refused to print. I can delete all print jobs but never the last one. It always say error 0x00000005. I have turned off the printer and disconnected it from my laptop several times, but it still does not work.

Applications that are reading file allocation table (FAT) based storage devices at the time of a resume may receive the following error message from the file system: ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED (0x00000005) This occurs although the file has appropriate sharing and access permission.

Examples of storage media that frequently use the FAT file system on Pocket PC 2002 are the PCMCIA PC Card ATA, the Compact Flash (CF) Storage Card, and the Secure Digital (SD) Memory Card.

This behavior is observed when using Pocket PC 2002 Adaptation Kit Update 4 (AKU4) and later.


Applications can handle this situation by detecting the specific error code while reading a storage card file, and then retrying for a short period until the device is ready. The following is an example C code fragment that demonstrates this concept: while ( !WriteFile( hFile, achBuffer, dwBytesRequested, &dwBytesReturned, 0 ) &&
( ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED == GetLastError() ) )
// Access Denied: Maybe the file system is not ready yet.
if ( tries > 4 )
// It has been a few seconds. The file cannot be accessed.

You can use the same approach for other programming languages. For applications that access the storage card through middleware libraries that do not provide direct access to the file system, you may have to implement transactional or block verification methods to get reliable data transfer across a suspend resume.
