Has *anyone* found a solution for a locked Ipaq File Store problem (Ipaq 1940)?
I have Ipaq 1940.
I think some people here are already familiar with this problem. I've searched the forum, and it has been discussed already. However, searching has not yielded any good solution.
I've got this problem yesterday, and I've tried to do everything I could think of, and nothing helped. For those of you who don't know, it's some kind of OS or hardware bug that locks up the Ipaq every time you try to write to or delete from Ipaq File Store. Why it appeared I have no clue, and now I also have no clue what to do to fix it, other than to send the unit back to HP for repair (some people from various forums did that and HP fixed it)
Here's what I tried:
- Hard Reset didn't help at all (File Store is not supposed to be deleted by hard reset, but I still gave it a try)
- Removed the battery for 24hours, then inserted it back in. This resulted in hard reset, but File Store was unaffected. All the files are still there, and I still can't delete anything or write to it.
- Then I tried to format with "Pocket Mechanic", but Ipaq just locks up and needs a soft reset to get back to normal. Same if I try to format with "Storage Tools" or "Resco Explorer"
- I even tracked down and run a small utility called PSMformat1.exe which was apparently made by Compaq to fix this very problem on ipaq 3800. However, it did absolutely nothing when I run it.
So here I am, hopeless and clueless. Why has this problem occured in the first place, and is there anything I can do to fix it?
