Cannot see any SD card in expansion slot

I have an Ipaq 2210 and have been trying to install tomtom 5 via the expansion slot using a pre loaded SD card.I have tried half a dozen SD cards which I know have readable data and nothing is being read.When I go through the settings it is telling me the expansion slot is not in use,and when I go through Settings,System,Memory and storage card all I`m getting is a grey box and IPAQ file store.Do I have to turn on the expansion slot or something ?.Any help please as I`d like to use this while I`ve still got a few teeth and some hair left.I don`t know if there is a problem with the PDA or if I just need to set it up differantly?

Re: cannot see any SD card in expansion slot

The first thing to try is a soft reset while the card is inserted.

How do I setup my HP iPaq 2210 to access the internet with a WLAN-11b card? What are the steps?


First of all, you should install the driver for your wlan-11b card to your PDA. (There should be a CD given with the wifi card, or you can download in online through the card's brand's website, ex. .cab file for a Spectec SDW821 Wi-Fi Card) At this step, you should be carefull with the version of windows mobile on your device and the driver's version for windows mobile. After that, you should plug your wifi card to your PDA's SD slot, and your PDA will recognize it. So you can go to your settings, and there you can search for a wireless network.

HP ipaq with navtec gps software and sd card fails


Ok, nice job Robert,

I'm posting your solution here to remove it from the unsolved problems list.

Solution by Robert:
This problem was finally resolved as a corrupted map file on the SD memory card in the hp ipaq 5550. Solution was to reformat the memory card using fat32 memory format. I used a SD memory card slot on my laptop and right click the drive letter and select format to format the memory card. After that, I reloaded map files to the memory card and all was OK. Note that previously I had loaded map files on the memory card successfully but that was not good enough. A reformat of the memory card was apparently needed.
I had also previously tried a hard full reset of the ipaq by pressing and holding the lower two buttons (calendar and itask) while holding in the reset button with the stylus for 5 seconds and resynced my contacts and reloaded the gps software, but this was to no avail. Try the re-format.

SD dectect error on 4 bit


Dear Andy ,
its a common problem in3900 series iPAQ.
If the Secure Digital (SD) Card slot on your 3900 series iPAQ has stopped working this is the repair service you need, this process involves de-soldering the complete faulty SD socket from the iPAQ main board and a brand new SD card socket being re-soldered onto the iPAQ main board.

So please contact any authorised iPAQ Service center ,to fix this problem.

It's not a phone. It's a pocket PC.
CAUTION: For synchronization to work properly, install Microsoft

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

IPAC 2210 + 2GB SD Cards


FYI - Use the SDIO update from the HP site, then do a hard reset and maybe even a couple os soft resets. Interestingly, it takes a while for it to appear (the SD Card). Even if you take it out and put it back, you will need 1 or 2 soft resets to get it to show up.

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.
