My Guylhem doesn't seem to recognize my CF card. It thinks that it does, though, but it suggests that it contain some stuff ("Image_Files", "Install_Files", "Text_Files" and a file named "home-zaurus-documents) other than what it really contains. My winXP reads the content as a couple of *.IPK files, and that is what I actually placed there.
Should one format the card in ext2 or other linux-format before Guylhem ROM can read it?

if i eject the SD card from the panel, pull it out and re-insert it then the SD card contents are shown correctly in document tab and applications such as portabase and opie reader . ZBedic and FBReader can read the contents of SD card without the procedure of pulling it out and re-inserting it.

my main problem is that this procedure has to be repeated even after every suspend and that scares the hell out of me because of the bad experience i have had with SD cards - i have destroyed 4 cards, and i have never been able to figure out whether it was SD card problem or a zaurus issue which destryed them but all got destroyed when i was trying to change them.

does anyone know a work around for this? i would hate to destroy my 1 gig hi-speed SD card (panasonic). thanks.
