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.

Sorry it's taken a while.

I flashed the latest official GPE image last night on my C750 (version

To cut the story short, I had no problems establishing a connection. I used the following steps (on a new computer, hence the delay).

1. Attach usb cable to Zaurus and plug into WinXP
2. modprobe g_ether on the Zaurus
3. Windows then detects device (ifconfig on the Zaurus is not showing the connection at this time as it's not been brought up yet)
4. Point Windows at the Linux.inf file, say yes to the installation dialog(s)
5. ifup usb0 on the Zaurus, note the IP address is
6. Alter connection settings on Windows XP to give the adaptor an address of
7. Ping works and telnet to port 22 tells me that dropbear is running there.
