Question about HP iPAQ HX4705 Pocket PC

1 Answer

File Transfer I am trying to directly move music files from my desktop computer to the SD Card on my iPaq 4705. I can open the iPaq from My Computer and gain access to the SD Card, but whenever I try to drag files to the card I get the black circle with a line through it, indicating I can't drop the file there. It seems that I did this in the past, but now can't seem to figure out how to get it there. Any help is appreciated. Thanks,

Re: 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.

How do i transfer music from my computer to my palm treo 680? i have and sd card in my phone but it only allows me to download pics


format your sd card using your treo 680. then you insert your sd card to your laptop or into a card reader so you can transfer music files from your computer. create a folder to the main directory of your sd card and then rename it to "AUDIO". you may now save music files to that folder.
you can now play music files to your treo 680.

Cant transfer music file to my lg ku990 via usb from pc to phone


Instead of loading the music manager, click on file in the LG Suite box, and then click 'content'. This will connect without a problem (at least it did for me, despite music manager not working), and then drag and drop music from your pc files, onto your phone. Hope this helps.

How do I format the SD card?


If you plug it into your computer and go to "My Computer", you should see your SD card listed. Click on it and then go to File, and then format.

If that option (format) is not listed, then you could just select all of the files and your card and delete them.

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...

Cannot copy large files to my SD card


Yes , the Activesync connection is not reliable for large files. You really would be best to get a USB card reader, also it would be MUCH, MUCH faster.

Storage Memory


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.

Installing files directly to an SD card


You can use the HotSync process to install files directly to an SD card, rather than having install first to your devices internal memory then the SD card. 1. Insert an SD expansion card into device. 2. Launch the Install Tool on your desktop computer: from the Windows Start menu, choose Programs, then Palm or Handspring (dependin on your device), then Install Tool. 3. Make sure the correct user name is chosen from the pulldown menu at the top of the Install Tool window. 4. Drag and drop files from your hard drive into the Install Tool window. File types supported on all devices: * Palm OS applications (.prc) * Palm OS database (.pdb) Additional file types supported on certain devices: * MP3 music (.mp3) * Pictures (.jpg or .jpeg) Please refer to your device's documentation to learn how to use these additional file types on your device, if applicable. 5. 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. Perform a HotSync operation.

EM-500 music transfer


Seeing that you are using a EM500 with only 16mb of RAM, you might want to get a SD/MMC Card. With that being said, let's do this, shall we? Connect your PPC to your desktop using ActiveSync, then press on the TAB "Explore" then "My Pocket PC". You are interest in the "My Documents" folder, that is where you will place your .WMA, MP3, OGG files. Just copy the music file from your desktop that you want on your PPC, and then paste it to the "My Documents" folder of your PPC. Now if you have a storage card (MMC/SD), you will have to create a folder on the storage card and name it to "My Documents". So you will then have 2 My Documents folders, one on storage card, and 1 on the PPC. If you want the Music file on the storage card to save space on your PPC, then do the following. Connect the PPC to your desktop using activesync, then press on the TAB "Explore" then "My Pocket PC". You then need to click on the "Storage Card" folder, there you will see your "My Documents" folder you created. Just copy the music file from your desktop that you want on your PPC, then paste it to that folder. To speed things up, you can also use a MMC/SD Reader. you can then copy and paste directly on the memory card, without going thru ActiveSync. Goodluck, and have fun!
