Hi,
I am still pretty new with my zaurus and linux trying to figure a lot out.

I m running OZ 3.5.4.1 Kernel 2.6.16 and Opie 1.2.1 on a C860.

I find that when I transfer a file from my XP through a card reader to my CF or SD card and then plug the card onto my Z, I don't see these files.

However, when I reboot Z, the files finally appear and whatever changes i have made on my cards are shown on my File Manager.

Does anybody know why this is happening? Do I need to reboot everytime I copy files over. I assume this has something to do with mounting the device. Is there someting I should do 1st before i plug and unplug my card.

I appreciate any advice you can give. Thanks!

It sounds like the zaurus isn't unmounting the card when you remove it. Is there some program you installed on the card or a swap file enabled or something that could be preventing that?

Thanks Xaminder.
Actually the cards I have came with the Zaurus I bought. The previous owner has some files still located in it. I have not dared to remove them yet till i know what are they for or if my Z is dependant on them. How can I tell?
I see files like initrd.bin, updater.sh and tools.tar. Along with a few release text files. I assume it may be safe to remove them, no?

How do I tell its swap file enabled?

Thanks again! Appreciate any advice.
