Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

Media on card stopped working correctly

My phone has been working fine lately and then just the other day most of the pictures on the card stopped working correctly. It showed some images but most of them just had a red X and wouldn't show the image. Then now none of the images on the card show up, all are the X where the picture usually is.

I deleted the pics, and then I took a picture with the camera. The picture shows up if I save it to the phone, but if I save it to the card it doesn't show up and it just shows the X over the picture.

What is causing this problem and how do I fix it?

It sounds like you could have dirt on the contacts for the SD card slot, or the SD card is failing.

I would recomend two two things to try:

1) try using a popsicle stick with paper towel over it and wet with alcohol to swab the contacts and clean them. Be sure the phone is off when you do this. Whiel alcohol does not conduct any current and is safe to use with electronics, it is always best to power off your device, remove the battery, and start with a very safe, non-powered unit.

2) try a different SD card. They're really cheap now so try one that's a reliable name brand. Your SD card could be failing.

3) try reformatting your SD card. (this is the cheapest and easiest solution, but not the most reliable if the card is failing).

How do you download photos from the lgku990

It's much easier if the phone has an sd card slot. If the phone does, you can simply move the pics to the card, use a usb SD card reader and transfer them to your pc. If not, u can go to a local wireless phone store which has a cellbrite machine and hopefully transfer the photos to a camera that does take a SD card. 3rd option is to send the pictures via e-mail to yourself. Usually it's like sending a picture like a picture message, but instead of typing in a phone number, switch to "ABC" and type your e-mail address in instead. Media cables work, but only with software and drivers.. Generally a headache.. Best of luck. One last thing, if the phone has bluetooth, many kodak kiosks have bluetooth and u can synch them together to print the pictures or have a photo cd created. shadowcaster.

I am going to guess that since you can copy some types of media files to your phone then the problem is the format of the video files you want to copy. The phone's media playing application may not show files it cannot recognize.(or show an error message).

If you want to watch videos (or movies) on any type of smart phone or mobile player then I suggest you download a free application called Format Factory. It converts any type of media file to any other type of media file (video, music, pictures, DVDs). It has settings for Blackberry phones, iPods, PsP, etc. Go to: and check it out.

Messages deleted when phone is turned off

You must have cleared photos and videos. however, many people do not realize that an accidental audio recording can use up all the disc space. So check for extra large audio files.

Got a psp cant get music and pictures to work on it with memory card thanks

  • Check that the media is inserted correctly.
  • If the storage media is formatted (initialized) on a PC, the PLAYSTATION®3 may not recognize it. After copying the required data to a PC, try reformatting the media on the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • There may be a problem with the media in use. Try using another media that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • Some media may have region or territorial restrictions and may not work with your system. See media packaging for details.
  • Use of certain storage media are available only on the PLAYSTATION®3 60GB model.
