You do realise you've posted an external hard disk problem under generic PDA problems?
From the sound of it you disconnected the drive without ejecting/unmounting it, please let us know what operating system you are using so we have some idea what disk repair tools you have available, from the sound of things you are using (suffering?;) Windows but what version.
Do you know what file-system the disk is formatted with? If you have never formatted it or have formatted under Windows without selecting any options it will almost certainly be formatted as FAT32.
If indeed you are suffering Windows you should have had a tools CD supplied with the drive, if you don't have it or cannot find it you will realistically need to download and burn a live Linux CD to provide rescue tools; if you have a fast internet connection download Ubuntu from http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu although this is marked as an installer CD it functions as a live CD first and gives the option to install only if needed. If you do not have a fast internet connection download Puppy linux form here it's not particularly pretty but it does provide a full set of tools. **don't forget either CD image needs to be burned as an image not just copied to a disk.
Once you have provided the requested information and have a tools/live CD to hand we should be able to help further however you my get more responses if you post thus under the appropriate category.

I can not send SMS message. SMS Message Center Number Error


I had the same problem and came to this site for help but the solutions didn't solve the problem of "cannot send text message" on htc touch hd. All service numbers correct. Went to START/SETTINGS/CONNECTIONS/ADVANCED NETWORK/SMS SERVICE then changed from "gprs" to "gprs preferred". Double checked and had reverted to "GSM" but sms now works - finally!!! Hope this helps.

Fatal alert


This is a common problem with the Tungsten line, You can try doing a hard reset. This worked for my E2. If that doesn't work, the battery must be removed for a few hours. Although it still may not work after the battery removal.

** To preform a hard reset, hold down the power button, and push the reset button on the back of the unit. The top of your stylus unscrews to expose a "plastic pin" for this purpose. Keep holding down the reset button while the unit reboots. You should see a palm screen displayed while it restarts, let go of the power button and follow the instructions. Pressing up on the pad ring should erase all data.

How to delete


For Editing Data: Retrieve the file to edited; touch [Shift], then either [< delete] or [> insert] to move the blinking cursor to the character or number to be edited.  Touch [Shift] [< delete] for deleting or [Shift]  [> insert] for inserting a character, digit, or symbol.
For Deleting Data: 1) Find the Data to be deleted. 2) Touch [Shift][CE/C] ([CE/C] only depending on model) key. *DELETE?* is displayed. 3) Touch [Go]. *DELETE!* is displayed for 3 seconds then the data is deleted.
Note: If [CE/C] has been touched in error, simply touch any other key except the [GO] key to avoid deletion.

Touch screen not working...


Hi guys,

i post this solution for those wo will be in the same situation in th next future. I had the same problem with my HTC TyTN (Herm 200). The touch-screen was simply not working. I read many 'solutions' on the net but none worked. I did not try the hard-reset because i was convinced this is not a software problem, and resetting the WM5 will not help. So i brushed the corners, looked for small particles which were pressing on the cover of the touch screen. but it did not work. finally i found one post (i don't remember where exactly) where a guy used a credit card and pushed it all around the touch-screen under the metal case (a bit harder). i tried it and it worked. i pressed harder especially in the lower part, above the buttons. and simply it worked ! no problem since then.

Light keep blinking


The Palm OS does 'housekeeping chores', one of which is to tell all of the apps about certain events in case they need to do something during one of those events, even the one on the HD.
