Hi,
Just picked up an Argosy HD530P external pcmcia drive which I was going to use with Z and CF-> PCMCIA adapter. The card is 16 bit and has been tested on an ancient Win98 laptop that only has 16 bit PCMCIA sockets (IBM TP 560e).
When iserted into my SL5500, OZ3.2, I get the aforementioned message pop up - this is using cardctl 3.2.3(?)
Reflashed to latest Hentges ROM (very nice work, a huge improvement), which appears to have latest pcmcia_cs build, same problem.
As I understand it, the CIS is not being read correctly.
Now, I've been programming commercially for almost a decade, so I'm quite prepared to get my hands dirty in providing as much information as I can to solve this problem (and hopefully contribute to development efforts), but I'm a Linux/Z newbie so I'll need some pointers in how to e.g. do a dump of the card data.
Can anyone let me know what existing tools there are to do this on the Z, or provide me with some cross-compiled tools?
The next step is to install a Linux distro on the TP560 to rule out the possibility that the problem is a general one with pcmcia_cs rather than the Z specifically.

Cheers,

Hi,
of course, there are loads of adapters for connecting CF cards to IDE interfaces, but nothing to connext IDE drives to CF slots.
We've got CF-> PCMCIA adapters, and PCMCIA->IDE adapters... now that this product exists, wouldn't it be great to be able to plus it into the Z with a minimum of extra adapters?

This appears to be a small form factor IDE drive with a 2.5in IDE connector on it. I know there's not much chance, but has anyone used one of these together with a PCMCIA->IDE adapter in their Z?
Thought not.
But it does seem a very good option compared to a 5Gb Toshiba PCMCIA drive.

Hi,
I've just purchased a pocketop keyboard via eBay, but now I am unable to download a driver for my SL5500, as the irk site appears to be offline and the ZUG page for this driver returns 404 error sad.gif
Does anybody have a copy of the driver (or the official Pocketop driver) that they can let me have?

Many thanks,

Arnie

Hi,

I'm a newbie on this forum (and the Z in general), but I thought I should share a fix I have for the problem where the Zaurus fails to resume properly if a Memorex 256Mb Compact Flash card is inserted (this is in OZ 3.2).

In /etc/apm/suspend.d/S35cardctl:
#!/bin/sh
#only use on 3600
. /etc/devdetect/identify.h3600
check_device
if [ "$?" != "0" ]; then
exit;
fi
# Suspend Cardctl
if [ -x /sbin/cardctl ]; then
/sbin/cardctl suspend
fi


After changing the above to
#!/bin/sh
#only use on 3600
. /etc/devdetect/identify.h3600
check_device
if [ "$?" != "0" ]; then
# exit;
fi
# Suspend Cardctl
if [ -x /sbin/cardctl ]; then
/sbin/cardctl eject
fi


the CF card is ejected just before suspend, then re-inserted on resume.

HTH,
Arnie
