I have a 5500 running OZ 3.5.4 with GPE. Everything's working smoothly except for one thing:

My Symbol Wifi CF card is recognized correctly, starts working, and after a few minutes it seems to turn itsself off - the connection is lost, the CF Manager reports the card as "not ready" and the only way to make it work agaiin is to eject it and reinsert it, and again of course it stops working after a few minutes.

For the few minutes the card works, I can ping back and forth OK and internet also works.

Any ideas? Could my card be busted? It's not even 2 months old!

P.S. I notice that it does get very warm indeed, even after a few minutes of usage... Is this supposed to happen? sad.gif

I flashed my collie with Sharp's 3.13 ROM and the Symbol card exhibits the same behaviour... :-(

Any ideas?

This is really weird...

Today, while the card was warm from being inside the Z, it would not accept SSH connections (it would switch off) nor any internet activity.

So I did a little experiment - I took it off and put it in the fridge for a few minutes. After that, it worked great until it became warm again - suddenly the connection was dropped.

My Symbol card works several followed hours. it is warmed up when transfer great files or seeing films but does not become disconnected. 5500 warms up with full screen light.
