Can not detect sd card

I am sure that the SD card functions well. My device has already had hardreset. My 4700 cannot detect sd card at the first time I insert the sd card. Then, I take it out and insert the sd card again...After several times, my device do detect the SD card. when it detects sd card, It functions well with the sd card. If I take the sd card out, and insert again, I get the same problem. What happens to my 4700? What should I do?

Re: Can not detect sd card

Make sure your card is NOT an SDHC. the HX470x only reads standard SD cards. The largest that I have found is 4GB SD (not SDHC)

Re: Can not detect sd card

Thank for your help,
I dont know why but, after I had my device hardreset (win2003se), it worked well. It runs very well without any problem from that time to until now.
Thank you again
Best regards

Hp back files on card can my computer restore these

The Hx 4700 series and the & The Hx2190 have a removable card Compact Flash or SD Card, if the information you want was stored on these you can buy a USB Card reader from woolies plug the SD or Compact flash into the card reader and plug it into the USB port of your PC or mac and it will be readable (no drivers needed). You may also be interested to know that there are updated ROMS available for this model to update the OS & the Office Apps + increase the max capacity of the storage cards that are recognized.

First, sim cards require compartibility with each phone brands. Second, insertimng the cim cards wrongly would least be recognised as fucntional. Third, inserting a new sim card would require powering off completely the device. A power on thereafter should reacquire the new system feature functionalities.

Memory card

Ok; The SD card is a memory card that stores data that your native memory cant handle, due to size restrictions. If the card is indeed inserted correctly, I would advise to remove the SD card and battery for 5 minutes. Be sure to power off the device before extracting those components. This 5 minute hard reset should correct the misreadings. If for some reason the reset does not correct the misreadings, this will ultimately lead to a SD card slot fault. This is considered to be hardware failure and you will need to take the device to your local provider for hardware service.

  • You can also replace the SD card as well. If that doesn't solve the issues, take the device to the local service provider for hardware service.

Hi Experts, Could you please help me with SD Card

Usually, and not to say this is going to solve your problem. I have always experienced when moving sd cards from device to device, most are not hot swapable. Meaning that you would have to format your sd card to make it work in your other device. NOTE; This will erase ALL data on the SD card.

Try cleaning the pins of SC Card with contact cleaner or alcohol if you prefer make sure its dry enough before inserting.

SD/MMC Compatibility?

I'm not sure that this will be a once a for all answer, but the link below says that any device with an sd slot can handle mmc but devices with slots designed exclusively for MMC cannot handle SD. Since the axim has an SD slot, I would say that it is compatible with MMC although I haven't tried an MMC card and the manual doesn't specific mention MMC memory.

Restoring SD Card from ActiveSync Backup

I am fairly sure that you are out of luck. The Active Sync backup does not backup SD card data.

Installing files directly to an SD card

You can use the HotSync process to install files directly to an SD card, rather than having install first to your devices internal memory then the SD card. 1. Insert an SD expansion card into device. 2. Launch the Install Tool on your desktop computer: from the Windows Start menu, choose Programs, then Palm or Handspring (dependin on your device), then Install Tool. 3. Make sure the correct user name is chosen from the pulldown menu at the top of the Install Tool window. 4. Drag and drop files from your hard drive into the Install Tool window. File types supported on all devices: * Palm OS applications (.prc) * Palm OS database (.pdb) Additional file types supported on certain devices: * MP3 music (.mp3) * Pictures (.jpg or .jpeg) Please refer to your device's documentation to learn how to use these additional file types on your device, if applicable. 5. In the Install Tool, click on the file. Then click on the "Change destination" button at the bottom of the Install Tool window. 6. Move the file to the column for the SD card. Click OK. 7. Perform a HotSync operation.
