So has anyone tried using 16gb or 32gb CFs into the cxx00?
Does it work or is a kernel patch (again) needed?

I have never noticed any posts complaining about problems with large capacity CF cards in the CF slot. HTH. smile.gif

I have replaced my Hitachi microdrive in my 32000 with an Sandisk Extreme III 16 GB CF card. It also worked in the CF slot. At the moment it is running Titchylinux from the internal CF card. Cacko worked fine with this mod, once I formatted it in the way that Sharp expected.

ZDevil has also done this mod with the same card. ADF put another type of 16GB card into his machine, A-Data I believe, and was unable to get the debian systems to work. I believe that he runs one of the pdaxrom varieties without problems.

If you search for threads about substituting CF cards for microdrives you will find a fair amount of relevant information about working CF cards. biggrin.gif

I just replaced my 16 GB Sandisk Extreme III CF in my C3200 with a 32 GB A-DATA Speedy CF yesterday. Works perfectly even with the standard kernel 2.4.20.

*grin* ... Great news! ... speculatrix ... you pick! wink.gif

I'm kinda holding back from requesting for a eeepc. The Z is doing its job just nice, and strangely its batt is still holding its charge quite well. It's been 1.5 yrs, so I'm surprised.

A spare mugen 2000mah batt is coming soon, so I might just fix up a 16gb CF to get my Z a new lease of life for another 2 yrs or so. wink.gif

I find that even though I've got opera / netfront working nicely on my z, and a CF wifi setup to work, I've not been using surfing web on my z for a looong time. So the CF slot is sitting around doing nothin.

A 16gb should come in nicely. smile.gif

My 3200 actually has a Sandisk Extreme III CF 16GB in it for more than half a year now. smile.gif
But now I also have a black Eee PC 701 as my favorite mobile gear.
Even though I was once crazy about my buddy 16GB Z, still I would say: the Eee PC fares far much better than the Z. Fully standard linux distros (mine got xubuntu), large and small enough keyboard to type away things fast and comfortably (which thumbboards can't do). Much snappier (CPU, SDHC, USB), comfortable and bigger screen (reading PDFs, CHMs and djvus is now a real pleasure, although the screen is admittedly less sharp than Z's), battery charge holds roughly the same length (around 3 hours with wifi on).
If pocketability is no longer the primary concern, and I don't have any Z, I would simply buy an Eee PC. It's just 2/3 the price of a 3200.

It's true ... sometimes it's crazy to think that just a year or two ago, no one would have tot it was logistically possible for us to have the eeepc at this price! smile.gif

Well, I know that many z users, linux boys and girls, and gadgeteers in general are basking in gadget heaven right now ... at least until a) the novelty wears off (if it does! wink.gif ) or cool.gif Asus EOL the product (unlikely given that they just sold like some shameless number in 2007!) or c) some even cheaper gadget with 8.9" screen and more features than a swiss army knife. The last of which, eeepc users would be in a fix, feeling at once in heaven since such a cool gadget materialize yet on the other hand, regretting having gotten an eeepc too soon! tongue.gif

Back on thread, the 16gb is still quite exp now ... so I might settle for an 8gb for now. ... smile.gif

Just kinda saw this old stump, and wanted to say that I have a Kingston 16gb that I picked up for USD 35 that works pretty well with Cacko on a 3200. Partitioned it to match and I've had no problems. It's kinda slow, but if I want speed I'll just use a super fast SD card.
