Psion 5 CF Flash Issue

  • Hi all, I'm sure this has been answered 101 times, but I can't seem to find a suitable answer here so I'm creating a new thread.

    My Psion 5 does not want to read my Compact Flash cards.  I tried it on my old Psion 5 (with broken hinge) and it too did not want to read them.  However, all my computers and other peripherals will just fine.  They're formatted to FAT16 and range from an original 10MB Psion CF card to Lexmark's and Transcend's in various capacities.

    I've had this problem before, and last time a simple reformat did the trick however now it isn't.  I would greatly appreciate any help!

  • its possible the hinge connector is broken, Psion 5 recognize cards only, when door is closed.
