Bad SD slot or bad sales rep?
I have a 3835. I tried to use a ScanDisk MMC, but nothing happened when I placed it in the slot. I tried to acess it from the backup function and tried moving files to it. I called Compaq and they said the card was not supported in the 3835. Then I tried a Scandisk SD card....same thing...nothing. The store clerk says I still need the expansion pack to see the SD card. So what are the answers? Do I need the expansion pack (I assume not)? Does it sound like a bad slot in the hand held? Are only certain MMC and SD cards recognized by the IPAQ, if so which manufacturers? Thanks for the info.

I've been using a 32MB Sandisk SD card in my 3835 since day one, about five weeks ago. Works fine.
No expansion pack is needed. The store clerk is a moron -- I have no tolerance for people who act like they know what they're talking about when they don't have a clue.
Sounds like a bad slot. I'd do a hard reset first to verify, then swap it out.
(by the way, I think you mean Sandisk, not Scandisk. I say this merely to clarify it for others who may read this thread)

Someone else posted earlier that they had to do a soft reset to get their H38** to recognize their SD card, so you might try that. As for myself, when I got my H3870 I inserted the SD card then turned on the iPAQ and the card was recognized with no problem.
Good luck.People who push "Political Correctness" as an answer to intolerance have in general been some of the most intolerant people I've known.

My H3870 returned an 'error 20' message when I inserted my new SD disk. So I have returned it to the shop for a replacementPaul
iPaq H3870, Psion 5 (the Psion 5 software still has many features that I would love to see in the Pocket PC)
