Finally got a 6000L today, but very confused about the usb host port.
Firstly, the mini-B connector on the back of the docking station (the one sharp gives you a cable for)- is that for usb host or slave?
Now, just what type is the port on the Z? Loads of ppl say it's a mini-A, and I've got several mini-B cables, none of which fit, but the port is for OTG (On The Go) USB connections and should, according to the spec, take mini-A and mini-B connectors, which will decide whether it is a host or slave. So why don't my mini-B connectors fit (not that it is much use to me as a slave port)?

Does anybody know where I can get a suitable cable for a reasonable price in the UK?
Iriver won't sell/ship outside US/Canada.
I am also interested in a [insert zaurus port type here] to mini-B cable- anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks
Simon

Thanks for the link! This place sells other, similar cables as well, and has worldwide offices. I ordered two cables (mini-A->B, mini-A->mini-B - covers most USB devices w/o attached cables) and got them 3 days later (US). iRiver is currently out of stock; claims it will remain so until July.. Also, not in your post: the cables I ordered are 0.5M and very flexible, so they are pretty compact.

i think he is talking about the MINI A usb Connector on the 6000, you need a Mini A to standard USB cable.

What is the correct name of a standard USB plug? Is it "A" or "B"?

Has any of you guys have any luck with USB 2.0 flash drives?
I picked up one of these little beautys (only $60 for the 1GB version at Sam's).
They are quite small with the retractable connector feature, and you can't beat the price.

Except that I can't get them to work with the Z. Hotplug doesn't even recognize when its plugged in! mad.gif The docs says that it does support Linux w/ 2.4 kernel, and I can mount it without problems with my Compaq Presario running Slackware 9.1.

Perhaps it is an issue with the USB 2.0 interface?

Have you tried mounting it manually ?

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstorage

where usbtoarge is a existing folder under /mnt

it should normally work at USB 1.1 speed.

Well, there is no device to mount. Hotplug does not recognize that the drive was plugged in.

Is usb-storage module loaded? If not try loading it manually that should force the kernel to see the drive.

Also this might be a silly question but are you using a USB host cable (mini-A) to connect the USB flash drive? It won't be recognised if you are using the black usb min-b cable that came with the zaurus.

Stu

P.S. iRiver Japan has the iRiver USB host cables for 520 yen (http://www.iriver.co.jp/estore/details.php?3,9,118) for those of you in the Land of the Rising Sun who were wondering where to get a mini-A usb cable from. I walked into an iRiver store and picked one up right away smile.gif

Try this: trisoft
This is not a iriver cable, but you can order it and you will get it.

I found a much cheaper and current alternative. It's very similar to the iRiver.
Check it out here: Vernier

Thanks for the link to Venier. Since I think I also located a possible adapter kit with mini-A 5-pin female I thought I'd share it, although the Vernier $5 plus shipping looks pretty good.

I found the following possibility (also available in 6 foot length?) which looks interesting:

Retrak / Emerge 3-Ft Usb 2.0 Cable
Kit - ETCABLEKIT3

ETCABLEKIT3 - 3' USB 2.0 Universal
Cable Kit - Includes 2-USB 2.0 Cables
(3' and bonus 18" cable), 9
interchangable adapters allow for
easy configuration of multiple cable
types. Configure as USB A, B,
Male/Female, Mini A 4-pin, Mini A
5-Pin, Mini B. 4-PIN, MINI A 5-PIN,

One source is http://www.nextdaypc.com/main/products/det...ainid=ND0130014

Another cheaper source for the adapter is http://www.audio-video-furniture.com/Commo...=294659#Details

Has anyone had any experience with this adapter kit? The picture isn't clear enough for me to tell if it will be right.

Thanks,
sdjf
