Hi guys,

The USB host thing is not working for me sad.gif . I bought a GoldX 5-in-1, as described in Meanies page. Then installed automounter C3000 0.4.6, and I hooked up with lots of devices, and had no luck--nothing appears (nothing diff happens) on my Zaurus. I thought that Zaurus reads it automatically. I have Qkonsole installed. So do I need to type in some code or something laugh.gif. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I'm a newbie also, sorta.
Try an external hard drive with USB
If you're using the original Sharp ROM, I don't know if this works as below. I use Cacko.
If your'e running Cacko, and are using the correct cable/adapter, you should see a new source in the "Files" tab. This is the last tab in qtopia. Also you should get an onscreen message that says "Updating information" about 2 secs after you plug in the hard drive.
If you hard drive uses external power, make sure it's activated.
This is what I get in my files tab on my C3100
Storage /dev/sda1
I have an external hard drive enclosure with an old EIDE drive inside it. It takes an AC adapter. As soon as I turn it on, and plug it into my Zaurus, I have an additional drive on my Zaurus.

Hi, thanks for the response.

I use Sharp ROM.

When I hook it up, I don't see any special messages/ effects. And under file, I don't see any new device listed sad.gif

I wanted to use this as a mini laptop, so USB host capability is fairly important to me smile.gif

I think Cacko ROM includes the necessory drivers/libraries that automounts devices on the USB host.
Using the Sharp ROM, there should be a manual method to mount your devices.
Re-check Meanie's page. I'm sure he mentions how mount these devices,
and I also think he has a script on his page to automount devices.
I switched to Cacko 1.23 full, the first day my C3100 Zaurus arrived.
There is a Cacko ROM for the C3000, but I cannot find the discussion about it, I'm sure it's here somewhere. Or in the Sharp ROM subforum.

I have C3100 smile.gif

Cacko ROM is an updated Sharp ROM, and has most of the Sharp ROM apps, but has a lot more drivers.
Read about it here:

Tks for the response. I would like to use Cacko, but I use the Kino2 player alot--even if it the frame stutters sometimes--and I heard somewhere that Cacko doesn't support Kino 2. Hmm, I better look at it again.

kino2 has been updated in cacko.
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15820
Look under the Qtopia heading in first page of above url
---------------------------------
Kino2 is updated to ver 0.4.3c
Latest version of mplayer 1.1.5 and bvdd 0.4 video driver included
---------------------------------
I don't use the media player much, and if there are newer versions available, I don't know about them either.

I am using the latest Kino already.

My bad. I forgot that I am using this stock ROM because I use D-link Air CF card. Factory Rom supports this, & AFIK I don't think Cacko supports yet. Or something like that smile.gif
