I tested this with C3000 (ROM 1.01 JP). Use a USB mini-A cable to connect C3000 with your USB mass-storage device.

cd /mnt
mkdir usbhdd

2) Create a file /etc/hotplug/usb/usb-storage as follows. chmod it as 755.
. /etc/hotplug/hotplug.functions
if [ ! -L /var/run/usb/%proc%bus%usb%* ]; then
 mesg Try to Mount
 mount /mnt/usbhdd
 if [ $? = 0 ]; then
   ln -s /etc/hotplug/usb/usb-storage.off $REMOVER
   mesg make REMOVER in $REMOVER

3) Create a file /etc/hotplug/usb/usb-storage.off as follows. chmod it as 755.
. /etc/hotplug/hotplug.functions
mesg Removing /mnt/usbhdd
umount /mnt/usbhdd
rmmod usb-storage

4) Add the following one line to /etc/fstab
/dev/sda1       /mnt/usbhdd     vfat    noauto,umask=000,noatime,iocharset=utf8,codepage=932    0  0

5) Connect your USB mass-storage device, you should be able to see it at /mnt/usbmem in a second you pluged the device. This is also visible from Sharp's qtopia GUI File manager.

I just got a 4GB Sitecom Mini Memory Drive (MD-202) http://www.sitecom.com/products_info.php?p...id=323&grp_id=1 . It's a small 1" hard drive.

Had some problems to start with -- for one thing it wouldn't spin up on battery power (only worked connected to a powered USB hub -- though I didn't try with Zaurus on external power). Then for the C1000 to actually mount it and write to it properly I had to eventually reformat the drive according to these useful instructions: https://oesf.org/index.php?title=Formating_..._Simultaneously

Seems to be working fine... not sure how long it will last, with its tiny mechanical parts...

Anyway, it automounts to /mnt/usbhdd now. But when my Zaurus suspends, the drive unmounts (in fact, when I resume the Z, the drive doesn't even show as connected when I do fdisk -l). Is there any way to avoid this? Is it bad for the drive? Can it cause data corruption / data loss (other than if the drive is in the middle of writing).
