Re: 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...

Where do u go to buy memory cards for the tungsten

Palm Expansion Slot - Expansion cards can be added for extra memory, data back up or slot content such as reference and language translators, sold separately.
You can use SD, SDIO or MMC memory cards. Take your unit to Office Depot, or Best Buys and purchase one. You can probavbly try it in the store before purchasing.

If your router has wireless broadcasting. Check all the settings in your router. Add the MAC address of the WIFI Card to your routers Wireless settings and also maybe in your firewall settings in the networking of your router. Be sure to add the WEP key when you connect to your router. Check your security settings.

Acer N30 battery problem (even new battery does not last enough)

try checking your power saving options, you can drop down the backlight a little lower to extend battery life. Also you can lower down the volume of the system sound and check if the bluetooth is on, then turn it off. Recharge it and then check if the battery life extends. You also need to occasionally soft-reset the n30

My n30 can't charge, but turns on under charging

hi, I had the same problem so i checked some other forums. I then found the answer. While your acer is plugged in, hard reset it, this switch is on the bottom of the machine. Switch the hard reset thing to the left for five secs, then back to the right. The green light should start flashing! You just fixed you acer!

The first thing to try is a soft reset while the card is inserted.

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.
