Re: Max size of miniSD card

The 6915 uses SD cards (not SDHC cards), and the largest mini-SD card you'll find is 4GB. There is a hack you could try out that will allow the device to use SDHC cards and you can learn about it here:

HP has not upgraded any IPAQs to WM6.1 and unless they do so there is no way to upgrade the OS in the 6915 to WM6.0. It does not appear they have any intention to upgrade any IPAQs to WM6.0 or WM6.1.

Re: Max size of miniSD card

Julie you said you use a 4 Gig card - I tried a few and ended up simply giving up after having to return them.  What brand do you have in your iPAQ?  The 2 Gig Card I have in here that is successful is a Kingston.

 

Thanks for your reply!

Re: Max size of miniSD card

I got my 4 GB mini SD card from Memory Suppliers.  It's still going strong.

Thanks Julie!  I will give it a go, as it would be a nice jump and allow a bit of music to stay resident dabei, inter alia.

 

Best,
