Somethimes when I switch my PSION on it erases my RAMpack. What's the problem?


RAMpacks are powerded by a builtin battery.
 
Judged by the technical specifications (Psion: est. livetime 5yr.) it is amazing that so many still do their duty!
 
A RAMpacks with an empty battery works quite as usual until either
  • it is removed from the organiser or
  • the Organiser battery runs low or
  • there is a power surge (i.e. when fitting the mains adapter)
     
    As these events physically erase all data, the only thing the organiser can do afterwards is 'Seizing Pack C:'
     
    Be warned: Because of their dependecy on a backup battery, RAMpacks have become a very risky storage medium by now!
     
    You can't tell if a RAMpack is alive if it's inside the Organiser. Desaster may strike you at any time...
     
    Please consider to change the pack battery!
