Question about HP iPAQ H4150 Pocket PC

Storage Memory

I have an HP ipaq 4150. I keep getting an error message that says..."Storage memory is critically low. If you do not increase storage memory, you may not be able to start some programs. Use File Explorer to delete files you no longer need, or move some files to a storage card. I just purchased a 512 memory card for my ipaq thinking that this would solve the problem. It did not, so I went into File Explorer and removed some files. The odd thing about this is that I never put any pictures or files on my ipaq. So, I went ahead and deleted the pictures and sound bites that came with the ipaq. I even deleted e-mails. I'm still getting this message and I have no idea why. I feel like I've tried everything. Can someone please help me?

    I keep getting an error message that my program memory is low, and please delete or move files. I have deleted files, documents, and temporary internet files. I'm still receiving the same message. Can I move files to "storage?" Why am I still receiving this message?

Memory card isn't really memory it's more like a disk drive. it's not like when you add memory to a PC and the new memory is automatically used. To make use of this card you need to transfer some of your larger files to the card.... You can move files from within the ipaq... Click and hold on file. Select Copy Click and hold Select Cut Navigate with File Explorer to the SD card.... Open File Explorer Select My device Now select SD Card You can create a new folder or select an existing folder Click on Edit at bottom of screeen. Select Paste. You can also move files directly from PC to Storage card...... While IPAQ is connected, go to My Computer, then double-click on Mobile Device, then double-click on Pocket PC. Now you will see your Storage Card, and you can use this just like a folder on your PC. You can create folders within it. You can click and drag files to it or to any of it's folders.

Storage memory critically low

You will have to delete some files to make room for the programs to work properly. If this phone supports memory card, you can move some files to that and free up the memory.

Keep getting an alert saying "storage memory is critically low." I erased everything out of the phone and still get the same alert.

Hello there...

Please check your Storage Memory free space.

Free-up your Storage Memory by erase or move any unnecessary or less necessary data from your Omnia's "My Device" storage to your Omnia's "My Storage".

Hope this helps...:D

Trying to move photos from internal storage to computer

Do you use your phone to browse the internet? if so, go to internet explorer -> options -> memory. and let it delete all temporary internet files. That should free a lot of internal storage. Turning your phone off and on again can also help to delete temporary files to make room in your storage memory.

Storage memory critically low no instructions inbook to correct

Hi. Your device gives this problem because its internal storage memory is low, low enough that Windows starts to lack some space. Correcting this issue is simple, you can first transfer some of your personal data (pictures, music, etc..) from your internal memory to your SD Card. (You can do this process by the help of File Explorer, and also that can be found in the Start Menu.) If this is not enough, you can uninstall some of the old programs that you don't use from your internal memory (You can press Start Menu -> Settings -> Add/Remove Programs). At the end, you can check how much space you have on your device (both internal and external card) by tapping Settings -> Memory. I think the empty space in internal memory should be at least larger than 3MB for normal usage. Hope this helps.

How do i free memory storage without doing a reset?

I've had the same problem. Typically the Temp Internet Files are the culprit. Which hotrodvixen mentions, but not the others. Are you using the internet a lot or downloading files from the internet on a regular basis that may be an ongoing problem? What happens if when you get the low memory message you just clear the temp internet files, does that fix the problem (temporarily)?

For any others who need to know how to clear temp internet files:
Open Internet Explorer > Menu > Tools > Options > Memory > Delete Files

HP ipaq 5550 - Bluetooth error

The error message is telling you that there is not enough memory to load the BlueTooth driver, try moving some of your files from My Documents/My Music etc. to your memory card. Also try uninstalling some of your programs and reinstalling them to your memory card, this will free up a fair bit of space in main memory and hopefully resolve the problem. Also; Tap Start, tap Settings, then tap the System tab and tap Memory. Tap the Main tab to see how much space is available in main memory, you should see a total of around 115-120MB available (128MB - the lie of storage device sizes - the file system) divided in to storage memory and program memory, if you see considerably less then you're iPaq has a hardware memory problem and will need repairing. Lastly keep in mind that Windows error messages cannot be trusted and the actual problem may be absolutely nothing to do with memory, so if this doesn't help post back.

Increasing Memory

The bad news is that many of the programs you might like to do away with are built into the ROM, and can't be deleted. The good news is that most programs will run perfectly well if installed on the storage card, so if you've got programs installed in main memory, you can realize some savings by running them from the storage card instead.. If you go that route, be sure to Remove the program from main memory and then re-install it to the storage card.
