Not knowing anywhere better to ask..

I have three SD cards, which all work fine on my laptop or PC.
However, only one is recognized by my ipaq.

Any ideas why that would be, and if there's any way to "heal" them?

How old is your iPAQ?  It is possible (though unlikely) that the SD
cards that don't work are formatted in a way that the iPAQ doesn't
recognize.

Can you format the cards on your iPAQ?  That would be the ideal solution.

Also note that early flash card devices sometimes set a limit on the
size of compatible flash cards.  I don't know where those artificial
limits would be on SD, but on xD many older devices don't recognize
anything larger than 128MB.

You might also try formatting them on the PC, but changing the file
system to FAT16 instead of the default FAT32.

Good luck!

Not even a year old.

I solved it, but it took multiple reformats using the laptop.
Apparently something hosed in the fat.

These were SanDisk 1G cards in a 4705 Ipaq
