How to eject cards from Axim?

I've checked all around, but for the life of me cannot figure out how to get my IBM Microdrive out of the Axim. Smaller Type II cards with a "lip" can be pulled out, but what about my MD?

Be VERY careful removing that Microdrive, matter of fact IBM does NOT recommend using the microdrive in any CF device that doesn't have an eject mechanism. I ruined one of my microdrive's in my BE-300 (no cf eject) by pulling it out, and there is a cutout that lets you actually pull out the card on the BE. When I got my replacement Microdrive, I just put a piece of scotch tape going from top, off of the drive a little bit, then to bottom, and it made a little tab I could pull the drive out with so I don't put vertical pressure on the drive squeezing down on it to get a grip to slide it out..

I attached a plastic strip on the back of my MicroDrive. It has a one inch plastic tab on the top and I use that to remove the drive from the slot. I got the strips (they have one sticky side) with another CF card I got somewhere along the way and it works great! Otherwise, I'd probably be looking at using some fine needle nose pliers, a pair of tweezers or just leaving it in forever.

What does the card error mean

Can be lots of things. Would have been handy, if you had told what card you are using. Your camera can work with CompactFlash, Microdrive and xD-Picture cards.
If you did not insert the card(s) you are using, correct, or you removed the card in a wrong way, you could have damaged the cardholder, causing an error you probably can't repair yourself. The CF and Microdrive you can remove by pressing the eject button. The xD-Picture card you can remove by pressing in the card, and release it. The card comes out.
Then you could have damaged the file system, by opening the card cover, while the card access lamp was blinking. What ever card was in, the filesystem can be damaged.
Then you can have two cards in, Both, o CF of Microdrive and a xD picture card. Some settings are required for the camera, to know hat card it should use.
If you have an Microdrive, the drive can be damaged, by a magnetic file, or the drive just stopped rotating. A micro drive is actual a miniature spinning hard drive.

First check if the memory card is inserted correct. Eventually, remove it and check all contacts, on the card and in the camera. Then try formatting the card. If you think there could be important pictures on the card, put it in a external card reader and use a recovery program, to see you can recover the pictures on your computer. Programs can be found on the net.
If you can't format the card, check if you have a Microdrive. If so, try to replace that with a CF or xD card.
I hope something is to any use for you.

Next time, please give us some more details. I know you exactly see and know what is not working, but we only can use your description. And only what you give us.

Program Zoom browser won't download pictures from the camera.

Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.

But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.

You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.

Microdrive:
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.

I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

"No Card" warning appears on the monitor when the IBM Microdrive is loaded.

Please wait for a moment until the warning message disappears and the Access lamp extinguishes. The normal operation will resume soon. The start-up time of the IBM Microdrive, until it becomes readable by DiMAGE 7, takes longer than Compact Flash. In the meantime the camera may not detect card existence.

Epson 850Z and ibm microdrive

While my epson batteries were charging, I used a set of alkalines, and something similar to that happened to me (had to re-set time a bunch). When I pulled the batteries out, they were warm enough that the little built in test strip (a thermal lcd) was 'lit up'. It could be a battery load problem.

Is the Axim compatible with IBM 1 Gig MicroDrive? As this is the only way to put full length feature film onto the PocketPC platform. I know that the Axim has a type II Flashcard slot but want to make...

The advanced Axim appears to work fine with the 1GB Microdrive. Just appears as a "CF Card". MP3's etc play fine from it with no noticeable problems.

Microdrive compatible?

The microdrive is compatable with anything that supports reading compact flash memory cards, because there is a common method of communication between flash and hard drives that use pcmcia or CF slots.
