Hi. I just got a SanDisk wifi SD card for my iPAQ 1945.
I installed the drivers, put the card in the slot, the led turned on and it
worked. An hour later, the led never turned on again. I re-installed the
drivers, did various resets and nothing.
I did a hard reset, and the only thing I reinstalled were the drivers, and
it still doesn't find the card and the led doesn't turn on.
If I'm using the iPAQ and with the card inserted (even though it seems to be
dead or at least unconcious), the iPAQ randomly freezes until I take the
card off, so there must be some degree of contact between the card and the
iPAQ.

Can anyone please please help me with this?? I really want to be able to use
my new card and my iPAQ.

Millions of thanks!

A little update. I have a memory card that still works fine. And also, some
times when I insert the wifi card, the led flashes dimly just one short time
and stays dead.

I really appreciate any advice. Thanks!
