So I'm in the market fora much larger CF card as well as an SD card. Since I have a wiFi CF card I'm thinking about getting a 1 or 2GB SD card, but I am concerned as all the compatibility lists I have seen do not include SD cards above 256 except this one right here:


I've also seen a lot of people talking on these forums about the cards they use, but never someone who I know is using an 860 with Cacko.

So what's the biggest SD or CF card you've used? Any recommendations for me? Anyone know of a thread I wasn't able to turn up with search that might help? Primarily my zaurus is just a mobile typerwriter and email station, but I'd really like to carry around movies as it's f@%$%#%$ing hard to type on the bus.

I'm trying to flash my 860 with Cacko 1.22. I've never flashed a Zaurus before, so I may be misisng something. The istructions that came with the build say:

1. Extract the 3 files ...to the root of your CF or SD/MMC card.
2. Make sure that Zaurus isn't plugged into AC power.
3. Remove battery for at least 5 seconds.
4. Replace battery (replace battery cover, lock cover), plug in AC power.
5. Press and hold the "OK" button on the keyboard.
6. Turn the power on, you should see the Japanese service menu.
7. Now Plug in the Power Cord. (You will get an error if it isn't plugged in!)
8. Select option 4 (flash/update).

Except for me there is no option four. Sharp's ROM reboots normaly. I never see the Japanese service menu. I can read and write to the CF card I'm using, and I've an otherwise unaltered Zaurus 860 that I just bought used.

Secondly, it tells me to plug in AC twice. Is it telling me to do two separate things? Is it just being redundant, or giving a reminder?

Any ideas? Anything I'm missing?

I just received my Zaurus in the mail, but I have no driver CD to go with it. Therefore I am stumped at the starting point. I plug it into my XP box using the USB cable and it identifies the 860, but then it needs a driver that I simply cannot identify. I've tried installing the 5500 and 5600 software packages, but I believe there is something on the CD that XP is looking for.

Does anyone have a zip of the /Drivers/network/ dir from their installation CD that I can try? Perhaps a link? I've been looking all day and cannot find anything.
