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

I m running OZ 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!

well, those files can just be deleted. They are update files that the previous owner probably used to give your zaurus a fresh install. In fact, if you received your zaurus with a fresh install then you can delete everything on the card. I would format it in windows (as fat) just to make sure the card is sane.

what rom is your zaurus using? cacko?
