Backup the data on the card to a computer.
Format the card.
Try on your iPAC.
If still not recognized. the format in a different computer.
Try on your iPAC.
Repeat the process till it is recognized by your phone.
When and if you get fed up of trying, throw the card away as useless/unusable.
When you take the battery out of an IPAQ you're performing a hard reset. I've got 4 different IPAQs and it does the same thing on all of them.
My solution was to back the IPAQ up using the internal backup program (back up to IPAQ storage) and then replace the battery, then restore the last backup.
Saved me a heck of a lot of time. It's been hard to remember to back up everytime I add a program or change data majorly, but it's probably the best thing to do.
you are now using outlook 2003 , probably cache , this means all the email is on your laptop. when you sync it will sync all the email (thousands). initialise your ppc (back to factory default). set up the sync via usb cable. then sync via bluetooth . then you are fully sync. now setup an auto backup of your email data (daily). if after some time , you have sync problem again , initialise the ppc, restore from backup and you are back to sync (last full backup). try this , you will never need to do it all again.

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"
Doosoft's mobsync is brilliant. I have used it for a year now to back up my SD card. It starts automatically when doccked. Also allows me to specify folders to back up on different schedules.
If an ipaq loses power , then all data in RAM is lost. It's important to keep it charged.
It's also important to do regular backups.....
so there are two backup options - one is thru Activesync which will backup to your PC and one is the IPAQ's own backup program which will backup to the IPAQ FILE STORE (area in ROM) or a SD card.
I do the Activesync backup every time I sync and then the IPAQ backup about once a week or immediately before a system change.
Here is a guide which best explains it
this guide suggests doing a full backup, but it's fine to do an incremental backup each sync - this means that only changes will be added to your backup and makes the whole process much quicker.
So under Programs is a program called IPAQ Backup. The default location is IPAQ FILE STORE which is an area in ROM and is not lost thru a power failure nor hard reset.
You may also choos to backup to a SD card - a full backup will need roughly 20MB. So in this backup procedure, if you click on 'Browse' you can choose a SD card.
A restore can then be performed from the IPAQ FILE STORE or SD card (depending on which location you chose) and so if you are away from your PC, this will be no problem. A restore this way , rather than thru Activesync is also much quicker, so if you have a choice go this route.
Sounds like it might be time to test things in a vanilla fresh setup..........
-Backup your system via iPAQ backup to an SD card (or ipaq file store if you have room)
Warning, following will delete all main memory and set back to factory default!
-do a hard reset (hold in power and reset for 20 seconds)
-Test programs again, see if it acts the same.
You can then restore your setup via iPAQ backup again if needed.
