Last week I bought a new 1 GB MMC card (I chose MMC over SD because I don't support the DRM SD movement).

I put the MMC card in my wife's camera and it recognized the whole 1 GB (I was pleasantly surprised since she had an "older" camera. When her camera hooked up to my windows (yeah, I know tongue.gif ) desktop, windows recognized the 1 GB as well. I formatted it with Fat32 and did a simple scandisk. All seemed well...

I then put the MMC card in my SD card slot in my SL-C860 and the Zaurus recognized without trouble.

But then odd things started to happen. I wasn't able to write to the card. Sometimes Linux had trouble ejecting the card. I thought that perhaps the card's fat table was corrupted (since my desktop DID crash while I attempting to surface scan the card).

I tried:

bash-2.05$ mkdosfs /mnt/card
mkdosfs 2.8 (28 Feb 2001)
mkdosfs: unable to open /mnt/card

I can't find the SD card (nor the CF card) under /dev/hd... anywhere

Any ideas?

Does the SL-C860 support MMC cards? How do you format SD/MMC cards in your Zaurus terminal?

MMC Specs:
My Flash
Multi Media Card
1 GB PC Data

Thanks in advance...
