Lifedrive wont read anything in expansion slot

Whenever i insert a sd card into my lifedrive it makes the noise to signal that it understands you inserted a card ( the device only signals a card has been inserted like every other time ) but then a error message comes up saying : the startup application for this card cannot be run --- i have no idea what application is missing to read the sd card i have tried to research and find information on this and the only thing i can think of is the fat32 driver that reads the card is missing

LifeDrive will not recognize SD expansion card

If the sdcard is the right type and size all you need to do is fully insert it into the slot. Its spring loaded so it will pop up if it isn't quite far enough in. It should only fit one way.

Generally the LD likes 2gb and smaller sdcards , it can use bigger such as 4gb but that's when you can be hit or miss. That depends on brand and sd version.If you search for a list of LD compatible sd cards you should find out what card to use or buy.

there is a slot in the top, right behind the on-off switch. for a memory card. But I don't think the LifeDrive uses a regular sim card, like a phone. since it isn't a phone. Hope that helps!

Acer n30 problem with expansion slot.

The spring lock needs to be adjusted, you need to open it to make it work again. Although if you want to try a nifty trick I do with cards spitting out in the slot is to put a square-cut electrical tape on both sides of the sd card and it will stay in...

TomTom Nav5 problem: Arm Read memory allocation error

I don't know what it is with those brits but I think they hate us here in the America's. I have TomTom Nav 4 on my wife's T3 and had problems with instillation but could not get support (real person) from tomtom. Did you buy the Nav 5 from Palm's website? I called them and they said that they were making one "JUST" for the LD but didn't know how long that was going to take. If anything if you did buy it from Palm you should try calling them and see if they can help you with it.

SD card not recognized

It is not easy to say what the problem is. It is not known to me that there are some settings for this problem. In my opinion in this case is important to find out what is reason for this problem. It can be faulty SD Card or some hardware problem. If you have possibilities try to test it with second SD Card (maybe another producer). If the problem is still there you can try to update or reinstall PDA Image. On this way you can check if error message comes again and find out is this just hardware problem. In my opinion the best way is to contact Service Partner. They can make hardware check. If you have some success and it works well please let me know what the problem was.

Expansion card doesn't stay in.

Problems inserting expansion cards, or keeping them in your device, may have a simple solution. Try these first: * Make sure the expansion card is facing the correct way. See the handbook for your device for illustrations. * Expansion cards do not fit into the slot if not oriented properly. If a MultiMediaCard (MMC) slides all the way through, it does not operate correctly. Make sure to fit cards carefully in the slot. * The mechanism of the expansion slot is called "push-push." Much like a glass cabinet door, you push to insert the card, and then push it in again to get the mechanism to release. Expansion cards do not need to be forced out of the expansion slot. * Though most expansion cards are notched at the top for removal with a fingernail or other such object, removing the card this away may damage the mechanism. Use an object only when a push fails to release the card. Please be aware that you could damage your handheld if you remove a card improperly, or insert objects other than expansion cards into the slot. * Expansion slots damaged by forced removal of the card do not release the card when pushed, and could refuse to ?lock? the card in the slot. Expansion slot damage can only be repaired by having the entire handheld serviced. * Some expansion cards labeled as SD or MMC do not actually conform to the SD or MMC specification.
