I have installed a 64 MB SanDisk CompactFalsh card. The Jornada does not recognize the CF. I get an "Unrecognized Card" errorr with a request to enter the name of the device driver. HP says that I need to get that from card manufacturer. SanDisk says it should be recognized automatically. Can anyone help? This also happened with a PNY card. HP said that PNY was not on the preferred list. HELP!

Re: CF for Jornada 525
The only advice that I could offer is to try those 2 Compact Flash cards on someone elses PocketPC. If they don't work then there must be something wrong with the cards.
However, if they both work then there must be a problem with the CF slot on your Jornada. Try to test out some CF cards from an electronic store if they will let you.
Yes, you do not need drivers for CF cards. A preferred CF list? Whomever told you this is blowing you off.
People use all brands of CF cards from Viking, Scandisk, Lexar, Mr. Flash, etc. Sometimes there is a bad card and other times the CF slot is bad so check both of those out...

To list your CE version, you can go to the Today screen and select the Start button to pull down the menu.
Select Settings (not HP settings). From the Settings screen, select the System tab at the bottom. At the top of this page, select About. This will list your CE version.
Mine is Version 3.0.9348 (Build 9616). It also will list the Processor (SH3) and Memory (15.87 MB).
Only a hint. Did you check the small print via the downloads for Pocket PC on the Microsoft web pages? If you download from the regular OS pages they don't mention that certain Pocket PC generations are not supported.
I noticed this but only on Media Player downloads fom the pocket PC pages but it takes time to find this more detailed info.
This may be a simple case of removing all the entire active sync directory.
If you used to connect via serial+com it wont be detected on usb.
Remove active sync from your pc via the add remove program feture, then reboot and re install.
Then run the make a connection again from active sync.
Hope this helps
Try another CF card/accessory in the slot to determine if the CF socket on the E-125 is not damaged. Also run scandisk on it while plugged into the card reader on yopur PC.
There have been issues with 128 mb CF cards manufactured by SanDisk (who are OEM suppiers to several other brand names also ) randomly malfunctioning.
Inspect the pins in the CF slot on the PDA to see if any of the pins has been bent/corroded.
Hope this helps.
