Question about Symbol MC50 Portable Terminal

2 Answers

Symbol MC50 My Mc50 keeps popping up an "Unrecognized card error" asking for the device driver for this card. For Information, please see the card manufacturer's documentation. Network Card in Socket 1 is listed in the text entry box with an OK or CANCEL button beneath. I've tried rebooting, and a Hard reset. Also, the wireless radio isn't visble in the bottom right of the screen.

    Get "Unrecognized Card" error. Prompts for name of the device driver for the card. "Network card in Socket 1".

    I have an HP iPAQ2490 PDA and when I click on wireless connection, I get popup with following message - Unrecognized Card: Enter the name of the device driver for the card. For information, see the card manufacturer's documentation. Then there is a form field to type the network card name, I assume. By default it shows "Network card in Socket 2".

    Because of this problem, I cannot get the wifi to work on the pocket pc.

    Appreciate your help on this.

Unknown Card in Socket 1

This issue may be sorted by reloading the operative syste, It seems that the platform files are corrupt and so the terminal does not recognise the radio card because it has no drivers for it.

Unrecognized Card message

Look down the slot in the Axim. One of the pins is likely to be bent. If it can be straightened it will work again but may break.
I had this problem while under warranty. The unit was replaced but that was y e a r s ago.
