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!
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...
