Not sure that I have seen this in the Forum, so I thought I would post, just in case anyone finds it useful.

It is possible to map the Zaurus (Internal flash,, SD & CF Cards, so they can be used from within My Computer/Windows Explorer as well as any Windows application.

Ensure you have enabled TCP/IP (Advanced) networking on the PC & Zaurus.

Connect the Zaurus to your PC via USB cable & wait 30 seconds.

Load My Computer

Click Tools then Map Network Drive

Select the drive you want to be used to identify the Zaurus, e.g. Z drive.

Enter the following '\\\home' in the Folder box. (Use the IP address of your Zaurus)

Click Finnish

The Zaurus should now appear alongside all the other disk drives, double click on it & you should be presented with a list of all the Zaurus drives.

You should be able map individual Zaurus drives or directories if you want, you can even create shortcuts.

Word of warning: Please remember to close any My Computer or Windows Explorer Windows that are pointing at the Zaurus, before you close the link.

For login:
You could try root and no password or root and root. Maybe zaurus and root.

When I plug my c3100 zaurus into my IBM WinXP professional laptop, Windoze first correctly recognizes I have a c3100. I get the option of installing software automatically or install from a list or specific location. I select 'automatically' and hit 'continue'. I then get an error that says the hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary hardware. It then looks on the internet for the driver (via Microsloth) but cannot find anything. Thus, my zaurus does not show up as a USB storage device on my computer.

Anyone know what is going on? Maybe I need some driver installed on my machine? Anyone know what it is and where I can get it?



(I don't have this problem on my Linux machine at home...the Zaurus just shows up as a storage device)
