Hi,
Just bought a 2nd hand C860 today. My very first task was trying to get it to sync with my laptop running XP. I have managed to install QTopia Desktop 1.7 on my laptop. And then I hooked up my pda onto my usb port and XP did not detect the device therefore unable to complete install drivers. I assume one of the problem could be due to a bad cable. However, I am not entirely sure about that coz the pda is still able to be charged by the suspicious cable. Is there anyway to ascertain that my IO-USB port on my pda is running ok with some sort of a loopback test? Should there be certain configuration I should look out for? Btw... I m running Opie 1.2 but not sure what release of OZ I am using. Also, how can I find out what version of OZ I am using? I really hope somebody could advise me on how to solve this problem. I have to say that its been a while since I had been on the linux environment and USB hardware details and workings are quite foreign to me. Though i have a fairly good grasp on networking. So any advice would really be appreciated. I thank you in advance for the help you can give me.

Regards,
Jeev

Si,
Taking up your recent advice, i decided to revisit my Z networking woes. However, I have encountered a new problem.

With reference to previous post on this thread, I was then able to get my XP to detect my Z on its USB port.

Now, even that fails! The RNDIS connection is not even established anymore. I checked under Computer Management on XP and the device is certainly invisible to XP. I did a modprobe g_ether, still nothing was detected.

Ifconfig -a shows usb0 is up. I m inclined to pin it down to a faulty usb cable.

However, the power supply through the cable seems ok as the orange light is still burning. Though I have noticed that it goes off after a while. Is that the sign of a faulty cable? Before I proceed to go out and by a new one, I was hoping if anyone could help me troubleshoot this just to confirm that the problem does not lie with my Z. Or perhaps XP is the problem? Anyway, of finding out?

Many thanks and I must say I really appreciate your patience in dealing my Z woes!

Just to add.. lsmod shows g_ether but on the used by column, it shows 0 if that should mean something. I have a feeling that its a windoze xp problem.

Thanks again guys!
