I have several programs on my SD card (HP 1gb). I recently installed a "presenter-to-go" program which uses hardware in the SD Card slot. After installing the software and hardware, my SD Card is now named "SD Card2" and the presenter-hardware is considered "SD Card". My SD Card programs are looking for files on "SD Card" rather than "SD Card2", and thus cannot run.
What should I do in order to run both the presenter-to-go and the programs on the SD Card? It would seem that since the operating system has renamed the SD Card once, it should be able to rename it back.

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.
Mem cards are added as storage cards and do not add up to your iPaq RAM.
You can use mem cards to add up space to install applications. (ie. it is something similar to installing a new Harddrive on your PC). However the physical RAM of your iPaq cannot be extended.
PocketPC programs have small RAM requirements so your PDA's built-in RAM will suffice.
As far as the maximum card size if I understood your question right, if your iPaq comes with Windows Mobile v5 or earlier, it supports SD cards up to 2GB and perhaps some non SDHC standard SD cards up to 4GB. If you can upgrade to WM6, then WM6 supports SDHC cards, so you can install >4GB cards.
First remove the SD Card, then remove the drivers for the SD card. do a soft reset. install the driver for the card. go to settings, system, then remove software and check tat the software shows up. Oh by the wy make sure you have the HP SDIO fix install first. ok make sure that bluethoot is off. Install the SD Card. now go to settings, then connections tap on connections. tap the Advanced tab, tap the Network Card. you should see the SD Card listed. tap the Card. the next screen ask if you want to set the IP address or have the server assign the IP. I leave it at the default and let the server assign the IP.
Tap ok 3 time that should close everything. and you should be set. if you have a wi-fi setup you need to tap on start then programs, then tap on "WLAN" this program is what you use to check your signal strenght and check if you are getting a signal from your wi-fi. Once the signal strenght is strong enough you will see that an IP address will be asigned and you will be asked if you want to connect.
There are several programs out there that can do that for you, the one I use is here,
Some of my thoughts to share:
1) It detects SD and mini-SD. To view > Program > File Explorer > My Device
2) To save attachments on storage. Press the Mail shortcut button > Tools > Options > Storage > Tick Store attachments on storage cards
3) Screen is well protected by the flip cover
4) Back is made of anti-scratch materials
