after a long hiatus, I am back to trying to get my little z up and running. I have a 8gb CF card that I will replace the 4gb md card. The card is hosed, and I don't have a back up. So what 3 partitions should I put the 8gb card into? what sizes of partitions, and should I have one vfat for my windows xp machine to read? I need some recommendations here. Do I even need that for openzaurus? I have only used cacko in the past, but for my zc3k, I am thinking that openzaurus (spitz, I think), will be more stable because it just uses the harddrive to install on. Thanks, any advice would be great!

I bought one, I am hoping the new drivers will use it! tongue.gif
perhaps others might be interested in it.

4g SD drive

this is what I would like to do. I totally trashed mad.gif my brand new (bought used) c3000. I need to take out the 4g hard drive and replace it with the original files, so I can have a working CK, instead of a lovely brick.

Now since I am going to take it out, I would like to just put in my 8g CF card instead. So, Is this correct procedure?

1st I go to TriSoft and d/l their ck flash image. C3000-2005-03-18-12-30.zip
2nd I place this unzipped on my 8 gig CF card thru a card reader
3rd I place the 8 gig back into my C3K Z and start it up (voila a running c3k)

Does this sound correct, or am I going to have to do something else? Right now my 4g card is totally hosed, and I can't get into the diagnosis menu to do anything. I can get into the flash menu, but - I can't fdisk my drives, I have tried multiple times to do it - but nothing works. (see my sad sad.gif experiences here)

Thank you,

I have been trying now for two days straight to get into the diagnostic menu. I have HDD2 Error, and I can't get past it. I have done the OK & Power on thing. (menu 3 -1-Y) I have done it extensively. But i still get the same error. I have gone to the page for Restoring a C3000 from scratch I am trying to do that also. I can't get into the DB menu or the DM menu. I have been trying over and over and over. I took my batteries out for overnight even - still, can't get into any of the useful diagnostic menus. mad.gif

what is the trick? I have all my files on the CF card (512mb)

I'm really frusterated! dry.gif I had Cackobeta on and X/QT from when I received the Zaurus. I tried to re-install cacko, the first part worked on that, but when I tried the Second part (3-1-Y) I get the same error:

error Hdd2,
EXT3-fs unable to read superblock
hdc2: bad access: block=2, count=2

any more ideas? I am getting tired of yanking out the battery and trying to do a DM or DB

I have the cl3000, and I am going to replaced the 4gb mdrive w/ the 8gb CF card. I would like to partition the cf card so that it is able to run both linux & also be seen by the WINXP computer. So, knowing that the CL3000 has a small amount of ram memory. How do you suggest that I partition it? And what would be the command? OR should I just try to copy the exact 4gb drive over to the CF card? I just don't want to brick the Z. Or do I try to do a NAND back up?

It seems lke my internal CF drive is pretty full. I wouldn't mind starting over with the new 8gb CF card and re-installing the cacko beta, and the X/QT stuff.

Thanks for your help, I am very interested in all of your suggestions/help on this.
