I just wrote a little usb applet which allows you to unmount usb devices such as usb sticks, usb hdds, usb zip, usb cdrom, etc... once they have been mounted by automounter.
I am working on updating it to also do usb networking and other usb devices related things.

This is primarily for Sharp ROM. Cacko already has an unmount for USB disks. However, this one handles 4 concurrent disks (provided my automounter package is installed).

Cool!
Thank you Meanie. smile.gif
It's the little USB icon to the left of the paw-print on my statusbar in pic.
It gives you a little notification of CD-ROM mounted when I plugged in my CD-ROM, I like that. smile.gif
I needed to re-start Qtopia after installation because some of the icons on my statusbar disappeared.
After downloading from forum, rename to qtopia-usbapplet_1.0.0_arm.ipk
..............This forum changes the name to qtopia_usbapplet_1.0.0_arm.ipk
I just tried my 100MB & 750MB Zip drives and they mounted with no problems.
Zip drives DO appear in the Qtopia Files tab.
Still makes me wonder why CD-ROM doesn't, but I use FileLaunch with one pane open in /mnt
I gave up trying different methods to make CD-ROM appear in the Qtopia Files Tab.

The newer version that I am still working on will have the USB icon in the tray if the USB host cable is plugged in even if no other devices are attached to it. This way you can check if you have the right cable smile.gif
Also, in addition to unmounting USB devices, I will also add an option to re-mount then, ie after you unmounted a CD-ROM, you can mount it again after changing the disk without pulling the plug and stuffing it back in. I also plan to have it detect some usb ethernet lan cards and do something with them. Not sure what to do with USB mouse and keyboard, maybe just pop up and say that they were plugged in. Maybe add some hooks for usb bluetooth dongles as well.. we will see...

I think your idea for a pop up notification on insertion/removal of a usb mouse and keyboard would be a nice feature.
