SD card slot stopped working

Hi, hope someone can help. My HP Ipaq 2215 has an SD and CF slot. When it died from lack of charging, the SD slot stopped working. Now I can't use my 256MB SD card and have to rely on my 8MB CF card for storage. Short of sending it in for repair, are there any fixes you could recommend? I like in the Philippines and it seems there are no repair shops here, only in the States.

Use a CF-SD/SDHC adapter and use the CF slot. AMAZON sells it for under $12.00. I am using a 16GB SDHC right now.3_7_2012_7_17_35_pm.jpg

Can i use windows vista with my ipaq 3835 pocket pc and what is till the memory expandable upto

No, you cannot use Windows Vista on your iPAQ.
I am not 100% sure but, I have seen products made before the whole HD SD cards not being able to use them so, I would stick to the regular SD cards which go to 2GB.

My hp ipaq hx 2790 don't read the memory cards

Are the memory cards of similar size to what you have used before? Some large capacity ones cannot be used. Have you used a memory card before in this device so you know it was working?

IPAQ 6515 doesn't recognize new HP 8Gig SD card when inserted. I reset but nothing happened. Any idea what the problem might be.

I am sorry?

You want me to give you my solution for nothing and want to charge me $9.95 for it.

I could not find any posted solutions when I checked your site.

HP-iPaq 2215 battery replacement

Hi, Jim--
When you take the battery out of an IPAQ you're performing a hard reset. I've got 4 different IPAQs and it does the same thing on all of them.
My solution was to back the IPAQ up using the internal backup program (back up to IPAQ storage) and then replace the battery, then restore the last backup.
Saved me a heck of a lot of time. It's been hard to remember to back up everytime I add a program or change data majorly, but it's probably the best thing to do.

SD Card not reading

I had this problem once and found after tedious looking that one of the pins was bent inside my HP 3715 PDA. I used a very small needle nose and a safety pin and pushed it back in location. Has been working ever since.

SD dectect error on 4 bit

Dear Andy ,
its a common problem in3900 series iPAQ.
If the Secure Digital (SD) Card slot on your 3900 series iPAQ has stopped working this is the repair service you need, this process involves de-soldering the complete faulty SD socket from the iPAQ main board and a brand new SD card socket being re-soldered onto the iPAQ main board.

So please contact any authorised iPAQ Service center ,to fix this problem.

IPAQ Backup on SD

Sounds like a potential problem with the SD card -- I'd try reformating the SD card and do another backup... If you still have the error, try another card...
