Through the use of an SD or MMC expansion card reader, which connects to your desktop computer, you can copy the contents of your expansion card to your hard drive. Where can you get an SD card reader? Try your local electronics or computer store, or look online.

Can't run applications from an expansion card


In some cases, applications developed before Palm OS® 4.0 that are loaded to an expansion card may encounter errors when launched. However, these applications generally run properly when installed directly to your handheld's internal memory. Here's how to do that: 1. Access the Applications launcher. 2. Open the Menus. 3. From the App menu, select Copy. 4. In the Copy To: pulldown menu at the top of the screen, select your expansion card. 5. In the list of applications, locate the file you want to copy to your handheld's internal memory. Highlight the file. 6. At the bottom of the screen, select Copy. Then select Done. 7. Go back to the Applications launcher. At the top right of the screen, there's a pulldown menu with different application categories. Choose All (this is a category that's on your handheld, not on your expansion card). 8. Locate the application you copied, and launch it from this screen. 9. Contact the developer of the application for more information on application compatibility with expansion cards.

Expansion card doesn't stay in.


Problems inserting expansion cards, or keeping them in your device, may have a simple solution. Try these first: * Make sure the expansion card is facing the correct way. See the handbook for your device for illustrations. * Expansion cards do not fit into the slot if not oriented properly. If a MultiMediaCard (MMC) slides all the way through, it does not operate correctly. Make sure to fit cards carefully in the slot. * The mechanism of the expansion slot is called "push-push." Much like a glass cabinet door, you push to insert the card, and then push it in again to get the mechanism to release. Expansion cards do not need to be forced out of the expansion slot. * Though most expansion cards are notched at the top for removal with a fingernail or other such object, removing the card this away may damage the mechanism. Use an object only when a push fails to release the card. Please be aware that you could damage your handheld if you remove a card improperly, or insert objects other than expansion cards into the slot. * Expansion slots damaged by forced removal of the card do not release the card when pushed, and could refuse to ?lock? the card in the slot. Expansion slot damage can only be repaired by having the entire handheld serviced. * Some expansion cards labeled as SD or MMC do not actually conform to the SD or MMC specification.

Installing audio or image files on an expansion card


You can transfer audio and image files to an expansion card in your handheld. It's easy; just perform a HotSync operation after placing the files into the Install Tool. Here's how: 1. Insert an SD expansion card into your device. 2. On your desktop computer, launch Palm Desktop (even if you normally synchronize with another application). 3. Click the Install button. 4. At the top of the Install Tool window, make sure the correct user name is chosen from the pulldown menu. 5. Drag and drop the audio or image files from your hard drive into the Install Tool window. 6. You'll notice that the destination for the audio files will always be "Secure Digital card." You can install audio files only to an expansion card, and not to the device's internal memory. 7. Perform a HotSync operation. 8. Launch your handheld's third-party audio player and open songs from your expansion card, or launch your handheld's image viewer and open images from the card. Please refer to the audio player's or image viewer's documentation to learn how to do this (it varies from application to application).

In the Install Tool, click on the file. Then click on the "Change destination" button at the bottom of the Install Tool window. 6. Move the file to the column for the SD card. Click OK. 7.

Finding data on SD or MMC


The Palm OS "Find" application does not look at the content in SD or MMC expansion cards inserted in your handheld. It only searches through data stored in the internal memory of your handheld. There are many third-party searching utilities available.
