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.

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?

Just bought 4GB SD card that hx4700 does not recognise - help pse


Your slot in the iPAQ is a SD slot, not a SDHC slot - therefore it will not read the card. Your PC card is probably a dual reader. The SD cards look the same but are different. Have a read of this...

Ipaq 2400 series will not recognize Compact Flash card


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.

It's not a phone. It's a pocket PC.

To identify slot locations, refer to the Getting Started
document that came with the iPAQ Pocket PC.
2. Before inserting a CompactFlash (CF) card into the CF
expansion slot, pull the plastic slot cover from the CF slot.
3. Insert the expansion card into the appropriate expansion slot
and push the connection edge of the card firmly into the
expansion slot.
✎If your expansion card is not recognized, follow the card
manufacturer’s instructions to install it.
✎For more detailed help, refer to the Help files installed on your
iPAQ Pocket PC. From the Start menu, tap Help > Connections.

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...
