Go to 'Start > Programs > File Explorer'. Chose the directory containing the file you want to copy by tapping the application's top bar. Tap and hold the file to be copied, until a context menu pops up. Select 'Copy'. Now, choose the Storage Card from the top bar. Once there, tap on 'Menu > Edit > Paste'. Your file should be copied.
Hope it works for you.
I'm posting your solution here to remove it from the unsolved problems list.
Solution by Robert:
This problem was finally resolved as a corrupted map file on the SD memory card in the hp ipaq 5550. Solution was to reformat the memory card using fat32 memory format. I used a SD memory card slot on my laptop and right click the drive letter and select format to format the memory card. After that, I reloaded map files to the memory card and all was OK. Note that previously I had loaded map files on the memory card successfully but that was not good enough. A reformat of the memory card was apparently needed. I had also previously tried a hard full reset of the ipaq by pressing and holding the lower two buttons (calendar and itask) while holding in the reset button with the stylus for 5 seconds and resynced my contacts and reloaded the gps software, but this was to no avail. Try the re-format.
Hello :-) I have a HP Ipaq 4350 and something similar like this happened to me. Except when I tried to take out the SD and put it in again the screen would go different colors and I would have to reset. But sometimes the SD will not get read because of the way you in and outsert it. Do you push down on the SD card and it will pop automatically or do you pull out the SD card. Because if you pull it out that might be your problem because if you DO pull it out it can damage the metals that read the SD card. Now If you do pull it out I'd recommend for you to insert the card and then pop it out and reset your device. If you do not pull it out you should go into the finder app on your Ipaq and see if that finder finds you SD card. If it does that means that your program is the problem and that its not fully compatible with your ppc or your specific SD card. Im sorry if this doesn't resolve your problem.
The SMS folder dissapears most probably because another program interferes with it. The same happens on some HP's with camera, where this options dissapears from menu because of some user installed programs.
In your case, it doesn't have to be a SMS - messaging related program, there are some compatibility issues and programs that apparently doen't have anything to do with messaging are causing this.
You should first try a master reset (hard reset) (save your data first). However in some cases this doesn't help, even if the program that's causing the problem is removed, and you will need a firmware rewrite/update. In order to perform this, or if you don't want to risk performing it yourself please contact me on the live assistance for step by step instuctions.
Good luck, Bogdan.
Have you tried a soft reset or hard reset yet P ?
How about a ROM update ?
Seem like one of your applications on the Ipaq is having a conflict so try to remove them 1 by 1 and pinpoint the exact culprit
Did you have the programs installed on the main Ipaq memory or a SD card if you have one ?
If an ipaq loses power , then all data in RAM is lost. It's important to keep it charged.
It's also important to do regular backups.....
so there are two backup options - one is thru Activesync which will backup to your PC and one is the IPAQ's own backup program which will backup to the IPAQ FILE STORE (area in ROM) or a SD card.
I do the Activesync backup every time I sync and then the IPAQ backup about once a week or immediately before a system change.
Here is a guide which best explains it
this guide suggests doing a full backup, but it's fine to do an incremental backup each sync - this means that only changes will be added to your backup and makes the whole process much quicker.
So under Programs is a program called IPAQ Backup. The default location is IPAQ FILE STORE which is an area in ROM and is not lost thru a power failure nor hard reset.
You may also choos to backup to a SD card - a full backup will need roughly 20MB. So in this backup procedure, if you click on 'Browse' you can choose a SD card.
A restore can then be performed from the IPAQ FILE STORE or SD card (depending on which location you chose) and so if you are away from your PC, this will be no problem. A restore this way , rather than thru Activesync is also much quicker, so if you have a choice go this route.
