Just got a 3100, its great - really pleased with it. But I cant mount anything on USB host.

Ive tried pdaxrom, cacko and am about to try OZ but am starting to think it is broken. I make a directory, try to mount and get

mount: mounting /dev/sda1 /mnt/test failed: no such device or address

This is the same on my camera, hard drive and usb memory stick - no luck with any

Also havent got the mouse working either, ive tried everything ive found on the forums.

Connecting the zaurus to my linux desktops works fine, the zaurus hard drive is loaded in kde, so i think it must be the host cable. But it was brand new.

Plese someone help, perhaps I am missing something stupid out.........

Thanks.

What command are you using? It doesn't sound like a cable problem.

you need to buy a host cable. the cable that comes with the zaurus is only a cliend cable. Check out meanies site for more details.

OK, so let me get this a little more clear. You use the host cable....check

Does the usb drive show up under /dev when you plug it in? From your previous post it looks like it does. So it should be working. On mine when I plug in the host cable the host drivers are automaticly loaded (I can see by using dmesg) and then when I plug in a usb memory stick it appears as /dev/sda. Then I just mount it or use the instructions on meanies site to have it do it for me.

But, my camera doesnt work yet because the zaurus drivers don't know it is a usb drive.

dumb tip but make sure you are root. I can't think of any other thing.

Yep - host cable: check
ls /dev/sda* - all exist (wether i plug in usb key or not)

here is my dmesg (last 20 lines)

CODE
usbh: hotplug_schedule_bh: schedule bh
hotplug_schedule_bh: schedule bh
usbh: hotplug_bh:
usbh: udc_connected: ACTIVE_LOW: 0<7>usbh: monitor_connected: 0

any ideas? i am leaning towards ordering a new cable - im just worried that the actual usb host is broken and i will have to send it back to japan. Cant face the idea of losing this Z for a few weeks before i get to know it properly....

thanks for your quick replies :-)

it looks like a bad cable because the dmesg output doesn't mention anything about detecting that something has been plugged in. you can visually verify this as well by looking at the sysinfo app. it should show something under the usb section,ie usb mass storage device. if it does't appear there, then its a hardware problem, probably incorrect usb host cable.

if the cable was working and the disk was detected, then doing a fdisk -l /dev/sda should show you the partition table.

i hope so, i have ordered a new usb host cable from figlabs - hopefully this will sort out the problem.

Systeminfo doesnt show anything in the usb section, no + or dropdown.

Has anyone else had a similar problem with the usb host before? i havent seen anyone mentioning it on the forums so I will keep hoping that the usb host isnt broken and it is only the cable.

Thanks for your great packages of xqt, etc meanie! i was up and running pocketworkstation in minutes.
