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.

It's very simple to do, no extra sofware required, just standard Windows, I have it working on 98 & 2000, should also work on XP & 95.

I have this working on my work PC, where I can't add software such as Samba, I also use the Zaurus to transfer files between my home & work PCs.

It is a great way of solving the Zaurus printing problem, as you can load the Zaurus file from from within MS Word, Excel etc., & click the print icon, you can even make changes & save it back to the Zaurus.
