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 '\\192.168.129.201\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.

mikew,
Did you have to install Samba? I could not do this with OZ until I installed Samba and started it. You may want to create a password for your username. At work my Zaurus appeared under the default workgroup of "Workgroup" on the network. If it were not for my password the Zaurus would be wide open. ohmy.gif
