OK, so I borrowed this 512MB cf card, it had 200MB space, so I tried to do a nand backup.

the Z reported, from the DM menu when I tried CF backup: "can not initialise CF".

so I repartioned the card, to wipe it clean, formatted as fat32, and tried again. same result.

tried putting the syst0006.dbk file onto the card, and nand restore says the same thing.

anyone got any guesses?

thanks
Paul

Hello

Try with another card. Your 64M should be enough for a nandbackup (which will completely fill it).

Try to fdisk it by hand under your zaurus - d to delete every partition, n to create a new big primary partition, t to toggle it to type b (fat 32). Then mkfs.vfat it

It should work. The new .dbk for the latest version is ready and currently running on my Z :-) If you can wait until sunday when I can upload it
