Re: Cant Find Files from SD Card for my Palm Treo 750

-Try the card reader in a different computer

Also, Try this:
1. Click start
2. Click "Run"
3. Type CMD
4. Hit Enter
5. At the new screen (command line interface), type "CD\" (no quotes) and press enter
6. Type the letter of the drive your SD card is located and then add a colon (example F:), hit enter
7. Type "dir /s > files.txt", hit enter
8. If it works you'll just see a new line
9. Browse to the root directory of your SD card and see if "Files.txt" is there (this should contain all files on your card)

Additionally try a search like this:
(if u can't see pic, click here

Let me know if that is reading your files... if it is... we have a chance to save them

How do i transfer music from my computer to my palm treo 680? i have and sd card in my phone but it only allows me to download pics

format your sd card using your treo 680. then you insert your sd card to your laptop or into a card reader so you can transfer music files from your computer. create a folder to the main directory of your sd card and then rename it to "AUDIO". you may now save music files to that folder.
you can now play music files to your treo 680.

Suncing Media, Photos, Videos and MP3

The Palm Desktop Manager, which is free on the Palm website, can sync all your media to and from your phone. Here is the site, just choose the right OS for your computer.

When you sync your phone to your PC, it will ask you initially for what you want to sync. You can also do this anytime when you open up the Palm Desktop Manager on your PC. You can drag and drop your MP3s to the music folder on the Palm Desktop Manager and then sync it to your phone. This is the easiest way to get the MP3s on your phone.

You can also move photos/MP3s from your phone to your PC by using a 1GB SD card (the TREO 650 cannot accept any size larger than 1GB, trust me!). Copy your photos/videos/MP3s from your phone to the SD card and then take the card out of your phone. Use a USB Card Reader and connect it to your PC to read the SD card you just removed.

Good luck.

Palm Treo Rebooting After send an Text/SMS

Hello, hope it helps (from

The application that causes the reboot varies, but it’s always the same error related to the message store. Here’s how you fix it (and beware — this deletes all the text messages on your device!):
  1. If you don’t already have it, you need to download and install FileZ on your Treo. All this does is give you access to all the files on the Palm OS filesystem. This is a tool that must be used very carefully, since you can move, copy, and delete any files on the Treo, even ones you didn’t know were there. It’s one of the most useful Treo utilities you can have.
  2. Run FileZ on your phone and choose “View and Edit Files.” In the next screen, you should see “Internal” under Filename. It might also say “ROM.” If you have an SD Card, you should also see “External” or “SD Card.”
  3. Click on the little wedge beside “Internal” to expand the list of files on your Treo.
  4. Find Messages Database and delete it (you do this by checking it, choosing “Details,” and then clicking “Delete”)

Try breaking things up into multiple folders to limit the number of songs it has to display at a single time.

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.

How do I listnen and delete MP3's on my Treo600?

In order to listen to MP3 music files on your Treo 600, you will need a third-party application such as PocketTunes or Aeroplayer more). Likewise, in order to delete MP3 files from an SD expansion card in Treo 600, you will need a third-party file utility such as FileZ (from nosleep software). Launch the file utility, select your inserted SD expansion card from the pick list, and delete any MP3 files you don't want. Please refer to the documentation for the file utility for specific instructions.
