    When I first the music from the sd card, I could play any tune and shuffle the songs and listen to them all.
    Now all I can do is click on the file with the artists name and only play one song at a time.

  • A21NICK Jun 09, 2008

    Did that menu- library, and what comes up is a box with MY DEVICE and IPAQ FILE STORE. no SD card.

  • A21NICK Jun 09, 2008

    Tried that and no joy. Regards.

    Taken out the battery and card.
    I had another problem a few weeks ago when I could get nothing from my SD card. It was solved by changing the metadata file which i did and all worked perfectly. But now I cant remember how I did it.The error message was--An unexpected error occured.

Try removing the battery and card and wait 10 minutes before reconnecting. If that doesn't help, see if the issue goes away by reinstalling the Windows Media Player.

Try this and let me know how it goes..

    It could be that the SD card is corrupted as well..Yu may need to either reformat and re-load the songs, or buy a new SD card..

  • Swilin Sampson
    Swilin Sampson Jun 09, 2008

    You will need to insert the SD card into a card reader, which plugs into the USB port of your computer. Go to Windows Explorer (right click Start button and select 'Explore'. Now find your SD card from the left side panel (usually after the DVD/CDROM drive). Right click and select format. If your SD card is Ok, then it should reformat. If there is an issue with the card, then you will not be able to format it.

    Once re-formatted, you can drag and drop your music files into the card.

    I actually have a pda here (media player 10 yeah) and I could make a video for you on that. But first lets make sure I understand your problem. Can you be more spesific?

  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    try reconnecting the sdcard. Also you could try a reset.

  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    Turns out I had windows media player 9 on my pda, might need to upgrade first but heres basicly what it looks for me. and how it works for me.



    I hope this helps if it doesn't I hope it helps you to explain your problem in more detail.




  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    Please watch the video I just posted you.

  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    you might need to perform a hard reset - it will remove all your files in the phone but everything on the sdcard will stay there.



    that will reset the media player and you should be back to normal unless theres a problem with the storage card.

  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    Well, if you consider the problem solved you may press the accept button on my solution. And ofcourse if you have any other questions feel free to ask.

  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    Try another card. or format it on your pc and try again.

  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    plug the storage card to your pc, open my computer, find the storage card and right click and select format. Its fat32. quickformat, very simple operation, just backup the files on the card first as its going to be empty after this.

  • Ekse Jun 09, 2008

    you can also format the sdcard in your pda with a 3rd party software like

Sd card


I had the same problem. so what i did is i created a back up on my computer and format it the sd card. and it had a bad file in it that was causing the problem. once i format it the card it was ready to be used again. just make sure you look for that corrupt file so you don't put it again to the already clean card. also i removed the sd card from the g1 and plugged it straigt to the computer. I hope this can help you like it helped me.

HP ipaq with navtec gps software and sd card fails


Ok, nice job Robert,

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.

HP IPAQ POCKET PC


1st approach (Quick one!)

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"

Hope this helps...

Watching videos from sd card.


Well, you did not specify the format of the videos you would like to watch... Are they MP4, 3GP, DivX, XVid, WMV, Flash Video? There are dozens of different video file formats out there...

I would recommend you to download TCPMP (The Core Pocket Media Player) from:

http://picard.exceed.hu/tcpmp/test/

latest version is: 0.72RC1

It is a free player that supports a great deal of video formats on the pocket pc and it is your best bet to play most of the video formats available on the internet.

You can even associate all video formats with this player so that each time you click on them TCPMP is started automatically to play them.

Hope this helps.

Try breaking things up into multiple folders to limit the number of songs it has to display at a single time.

Saving music on my micro sd..


The only way the music can be played on a cell phone is if it is in mp3 format. you also have to list the songs individually (they cannot be separated into folders). to listen to the music you should have some sort of music player on the phone that will play the songs.

Can't play music


The first thing to establish is is the Windows Media Player you default music player on your PC? Second, Can you see the files in the Media Library and/or in the 'Copy to CD or Device' list?

File Transfer


Use file explore option in Activesyn or just use a SD card reader to transfer music, pictures, etc. to the card. It's much faster & easier.
