Re: Expansion card doesn't stay in.

If the expansion card will not lock in when inserted, the mechanism may be broken. If all else fails, the spring can be removed from the mechanism, and the "pop-up" feature disabled. Instructions here http://cfgraf.com/palmt5fix/palmt5fix.html

Re: 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.

I can not figure out how to connect my device to the internet Wi-Fi, I want to go on internet explorer and it won't connect


To send and receive e-mail with Inbox and view Web sites with Pocket Internet Explorer, set up a remote connection using a modem card or an Ethernet/LAN card.
To connect to the Internet with a modem card, you need a phone line, a dial-up Internet Service Provider, and an optional Single-slot or Dual-slot PC Card Expansion Pack or CompactFlash (CF) Card Expansion Pack.
*Insert your modem card
*From the Start menu, tap Settings
*Tap the Connections tab->Connections Icon-->Internet Settings-->Modify-->New
*Enter a name for the connection, select the modem type, and select the correct baud rate for that modem.

I have shared the basic steps..which I refereed using the reference guide for the model that you have specified from this website.This you can easily get my typing "reference guide for Compaq iPAQ H3850 Pocket PC" in Google...and the first link lets you download the PDF..Follow the steps carefully and connect to the internet.To check for the internet speed you can use Scanmyspeed.com which gives you accurate speed results.

LifeDrive will not recognize SD expansion card


If the sdcard is the right type and size all you need to do is fully insert it into the slot. Its spring loaded so it will pop up if it isn't quite far enough in. It should only fit one way.

Generally the LD likes 2gb and smaller sdcards , it can use bigger such as 4gb but that's when you can be hit or miss. That depends on brand and sd version.If you search for a list of LD compatible sd cards you should find out what card to use or buy.

Palce where to insert sim card


It's not a phone. It's a pocket PC.
CAUTION: For synchronization to work properly, install Microsoft
ActiveSync on your personal computer before you connect your
iPAQ Pocket PC to your computer.
To install a CompactFlash (CF) or Secure Digital (SD) card into
an expansion slot on the iPAQ Pocket PC:
1. Locate the appropriate slot on the top of the iPAQ Pocket PC.
To identify slot locations, refer to the Getting Started
document that came with the iPAQ Pocket PC.
2. Before inserting a CompactFlash (CF) card into the CF
expansion slot, pull the plastic slot cover from the CF slot.
3. Insert the expansion card into the appropriate expansion slot
and push the connection edge of the card firmly into the
expansion slot.
✎If your expansion card is not recognized, follow the card
manufacturer’s instructions to install it.
✎For more detailed help, refer to the Help files installed on your
iPAQ Pocket PC. From the Start menu, tap Help > Connections.
✎To prevent power loss, remove any expansion cards from either
the CF or SD expansion slots before turning off the iPAQ
Pocket PC.

Acer n30 problem with expansion slot.


The spring lock needs to be adjusted, you need to open it to make it work again. Although if you want to try a nifty trick I do with cards spitting out in the slot is to put a square-cut electrical tape on both sides of the sd card and it will stay in...

SD card not recognized


It is not easy to say what the problem is. It is not known to me that there are some settings for this problem. In my opinion in this case is important to find out what is reason for this problem. It can be faulty SD Card or some hardware problem. If you have possibilities try to test it with second SD Card (maybe another producer). If the problem is still there you can try to update or reinstall PDA Image. On this way you can check if error message comes again and find out is this just hardware problem. In my opinion the best way is to contact Service Partner. They can make hardware check. If you have some success and it works well please let me know what the problem was.
