I recently found this thread: https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=22621, which deals about getting a high capacity SD card (> 1Gb) with C760/C860 and Cacko, and I'm very interested in that possibility.

As far as I can see, it deals with installing a driver for a SDIO wifi card made by c-guys, and people report it seems to be working, but I need to be sure, since I don't want to end up with an unusable card. I could still try to use it with my digital camera, but, since I bought that before SD cards with more than 1Gb capacity appeared on the market, I can't be sure that would work, either.

Besides that, another thing comes to my mind: the driver is meant for C760/C860, as stated on c-guys site, and, as far as I know, C760 and C860 don't support SDIO. Am I missing something?

Well, the fact is, does anybody know if the driver would work with a C760 using Cacko 1.23?

Thanks in advance.

I recently had success using a Kingston 2GB SD card on my C760 running Cacko 1.23. The thread that helped me get it working was this one:


The key important steps are:

1. Install the sd-link11b_us_jpn_arm.ipk package (and then reboot).
2. Replace /usr/sbin/sdiomgr with the script detailed in that thread.
3. If you want to use ext2 on the SD card, use 'mke2fs -b 1024 /dev/mmcda1' (vfat apparently works just fine).

Hope that helps!
