Windows Media Player 10.1 on my iPAQ hx2490b won't recognise the library on my storage card. In addition, WMP11 on my PC won't sync to the card while it's in my iPAQ, only when it's in the PC's card reader.ThanksLiz

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...
1. Soft reset your device 2. make a backup copy of the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA if exists. 3. delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA. 4. Soft reset your device once again.
2nd approach (Long one!)
If 1st approach did not work, restore the MSMETADATA folder and try the following:
Step Zero: BACKUP - Make a full backup of your device (including storage cards). If you don't like to do a full backup keep at least a backup of all files and folders we are going to delete as indicated below:
Step One -In the main device directory delete the file WMPInfo.xml -Delete the \Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ directory and all of the files in it including the WMDRM folder. -Delete the \Music folder
Step Two -Go to your SD card main directory and delete the file WMPInfo.xml -Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA -Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\WMDRM -Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\Music
Step Three -Repeat step two for any other storage cards.
Step Four -Refresh devices in WMP and the storages card should show up in the left tab and in the sync window you can click "Next Device"
With pictures, since they're large, it's desirable to copy them to your storage card. And since they're large, it's much easier to copy them to the card with a card reader, rather than ActiveSync.
