Hi, I think I have some problem with my camera on iPAQ. When I press the button to catch a photo, it takes very long time until the photo appears on display. (However, in video mode everything seems to work fine.) The program is called "hpcamapp.exe" - where could I download an update (nothing seems to be available from hp.com).  Or is there some other solution?

Check that you have enough memory on your Pocket PC (not on the card) to process the image. If you use Pocket Internet Explorer, open it and tap Tools to find the [Delete Files] button. Click it to clear the program's cache.

Also try testing this just after a soft reset and see if make any difference.

And if you have lots of programs, make sure to have those installed on a flash card, leaving as much free memory as possible on the device itself.

Thanks! I found that the reason of the problem was somewhere else. I set that the photos from HP camera should be saved directly onto the memory card and when I changed this setting and let the photos be saved to device memory, the problem was gone.

However, this is very unpleasant, because it means that I have to move the images to the memory card manually. But still better than to wait 1 min. in case of each img.

It could be that you have a very slow SD card. There are some very fast cards - and they do make a difference. It also could be that the specific iPaq model is not as fast to write to the SD card - but granted 60 seconds it too much...

Hmm, my miniSD card is Kingston 1GB.

Now I also tried to copy some mp3 files to the card in PDA when connected with PC through usb cable and it also was quite slow.
Then I pushed the card out of iPAQ and placed it in the PC card reader and the speed was much better.

So it seems the problem might be somewhere between the PDA and miniSD card...
