Just replaced /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/
kernel/drivers/block/sharp_mmcsd_m.o with this module (after saving old driver as sharp_mmcsd_m_old.o) and rebooted. Put in a 2 GB SD card formatted fat16, with 1.9 GB of movies. Movies play fine!!

df reports:

1960064 KB as size of SD card with
1932960 in use and
27104 available  (99% in use)

Next would like to try re-formatting as ext2.  biggrin.gif

Looks great!! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Oak,

thanks for trying it on the SL-6000, I believe you are the first of the Tosa owners. I'm leaving on a biz trip tomorrow so I'm not sure I'll have time to try it myself with my 2Gb PNY card before I leave. AAAAARGH, the wait is killing me.....

Pelrun,

thank you so much for the new driver. You should add to your signature "The Genius from the Land Down Under" smile.gif Nice job, mate!!!!!

As always, Linux rules.

The Sandisk Ultra II SD card interfaces directly to the computer with its built-in USB connector without the need for a card reader, which is very convenient if you are not at home and need to transfer information between the SD card and a desktop computer which has a USB port. Windows XP seems to ignore the write protect tab on the Sandisk Ultra II SD card and will happily write data to the card.

Well, 2 GB card is now formatted ext2, and all my games are installed to it. So far, df reports:

1928692 KB as cards capacity with
294224 KB in use and
1634468 KB left

going to put a few movies on the SD card and test further.

I get an error message when I run voicerec-pel and try to access the Options menu:

voicrec-pel: error while loading shared libraries: ./voicerec-pel: undefined symbol: getNumOfStorageID__15SlStroageIn

Hahaha - I only grabbed that file from the initrd.bin I happened to have mounted somewhere, I didn't pay attention to which model it was for - so it's probably not surprising that it's not the right one.

That's what I get for trying to be clever and knocking out a fix like that in ten minutes smile.gif If you want to send me your original voicerec binary I can replicate it easily enough.

Here's my voicerec program from the Zaurus SL-C760. The original location is

/usr/QtPalmtop.rom/bin/voicerec

There is a symbolic link to voicerec from:

/home/QtPalmtop/bin/voicerec

Now have 89% full and movies play on 2 GB SD card (formatted ext2) like a dream. Copying files was a little problematic using the gui (TreeExplorer and sharp's file viewer, (NOT file manager)), but flawless using a simple cp command in qkonsole.

In all fairness the problems with the gui file managers were probably user impatience.

I feel that movies playing are a good test of real time use of the new driver. So far, I see no flaws with this driver. Thanks again pelrun. You have given the venerable 6000 a much needed usability boost after a long stale spell.

We 6000 users can't thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, one more attempt on voicerec (maybe this should have got a new thread biggrin.gif):

Trip or no trip I couldn't resist, I tried the driver on my stock SL-6000 and it works perfectly with a 2Gb PNY card. Just in case I also put a copy of the original driver on the CF before renaming it with "old" and then rename pelrun patched driver with the name as the original Sharp driver. Rebooted and ... voila', 2Gb card mounts and works without a hitch. System Info from within Qtopia sees it with the right size and everything. I copied the content of my 1Gb Sandisk SD to my laptop with a USB card reader, copied from laptop to 2 Gb PNY, inserted 2Gb in Zaurus... DONE!

The PNY SD doens't hit me as blazing fast, but it doesn't feel slower than the Sandisk, even when playing a couple of large movie clips with Zplayer. I don't have time for now to do comparative transfer data rate tests, but I will.

Amazing a fix came only after three plus years the SL-6000 has been out. I guess the fact that >1Gb SD price has become ridiculously low only recently played a role.....

No matter, pelrun: YOU DA MAN!!!!

I'm way late in trying this out. But I glanced through this thread and am I right in thinking that there is no 2gb+ driver for my c3100? Too bad sad.gif

I thought pdaxrom uses a more up to date kernel. I highly doubt I can just take the module from the pdaxrom kernel and use it on my c3100 sharp rom. Sense this is not the pdaxrom forum I assume you are talking about pulling the module from that kernel. laugh.gif
