I just bought a SD card and inserted into my Axim X3 - it never identified the card.

So, I took the card out and put it into a friends axim x3 - and it recongnized the card.

I have tried to clean out the slot with an air can, did a copule of warm resets - but nothign works.

ANy suggestions would help.

I got tired of searching and searching the internet so I took apart my X3I and I noticed that 2 of the prongs in the card accepter had been bent so I bent them back and put the sd card back in btw its a 2GB sd card and it recognized it.If you wish to do the same take the rubber feet out of each of the four corners and inside each hole there is a screw after all four screws have been taken out pop the back plate of and you will be able to see the sd card accepter inside I suggest putting the sd card in so you do not over bend the prongs best of luck.
