What's max mem size for ipaq 1950

I recently purchased a 1 gig mem card for my HP Ipaq 1950 pc and in the setup it doesn't see the memory or the storage size when I added it. Is there a maximum size for this device

    I have installed a 2G Memory Card into my HP PDA 1950 and it doesn't recognise that it is there. It keeps telling me I am low on memory. How do you get the PDA to recognise this?

Mem cards are added as storage cards and do not add up to your iPaq RAM.

You can use mem cards to add up space to install applications. (ie. it is something similar to installing a new Harddrive on your PC). However the physical RAM of your iPaq cannot be extended.

PocketPC programs have small RAM requirements so your PDA's built-in RAM will suffice.

As far as the maximum card size if I understood your question right, if your iPaq comes with Windows Mobile v5 or earlier, it supports SD cards up to 2GB and perhaps some non SDHC standard SD cards up to 4GB. If you can upgrade to WM6, then WM6 supports SDHC cards, so you can install >4GB cards.

Hope this helps.

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


Your 8 Gig card is a SDHC (HC=High Capacity) Card. All HC cards use a different format, which the 6515 can't use...

The biggest capacity the 6515 can use is 4 gig on the SD and 2 gig on the mini SD.

My 4g Transcend card and 2g Sandisk cards have been faultless for about 2 years now.

Sorry, but the 8 gig card is a wonderfull card, but is useless in a 6515
