just tried the "sudo modprobe ohci-hcd" and got an error saying "can't locate module ochi-hcd".

That's likely your issue, then. That module allows for USB host mode, IIRC. Did you try Jon_J's IPK?

EDIT: At least, it does on 2.6.x kernels. The IPK has promising modules in it, though.



I installed the ipk and I still get the same error when I run sudo modprobe ohci-hcd.

Even better now when I plug in a USB drive my system locks!

I think I will uninstall the IPK smile.gif

OK I think i worked out what my problem is - see this thread (http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=23984&st=75&gopid=178010&#entry178010)

It says in there that the kernel developed for Quasar media player causes issues with USB HDD however someone else also says that these changes have been rolled into Tetsu's kernel (which presumably would work fine with external USB HDD's)

Also I just double checked and it said sharprom/cacko so I guess I'm still running sharprom with this kernel so any references to cacko are my mistake - i am not running cacko - just sharprom with this special kernel.

Sooooo......

I guess the answer is to install Tetsu's kernel - of course as I can't read his website (I don't speak japanese)

so I downloaded what I think is the right kernel (18j C3200) and also kernel-modules_v18j_arm.ipk and updater.sh. However in some of the english translated stuff I could see that 18j was talking about dual booting into PDAXROM which I don't want to do but I can't see the earlier Kernel on his website to download. Oh well I guess it supports it but hopefully doesn't require it?

So I think what I need to do is
- Install the new kernel
- Install the IPK with the modules

Test again - can someone else make sense of this and see if my approach makes sense?

Thanks!

Why not just use Cacko? Does it not run on the C3000 (I think that's what you said you have)? If not, you're approach makes prefect sense (I just thought that the Cacko kernel WAS Tetsu's kernel).

I have copies of Tetsu kernels for both the SL-C3100 and SL-C3200
I have these two versions: (v-18h) and (v-18i)
I'll attach them in 2 zip files. I'll also attach a zip file with instructions (English) in "html" and a short text instruction.
Also attached is a screenshot of the file contents of both zip files with Tetsu's kernels.

In answer to an earlier question - I have a C3200 and don't really want to do a full OS reinstall.

Thanks Jon_J for those instructions and packages - I installed the latest kernel (V18j) just to see if it had any dual booting stuff that would effect me and it didn't - it just booted straight up and runs fine. Your packages were a great help in that I felt I had somewhere to go if V18j didn't work so thanks! My external USB storage is working again - I've tried all the devices and they are all fine.

I feel like such a fool - I installed a kernel and should have remembered to go back to that thread and read through it and I would have seen Meanie diagnosing that it didn't work properly with external USB drives....

Thanks everyone for your help!
