thanks for this valuable piece of information. added it to the list of supported sd cards.

in search of........its pretty stable so far. or someone would of posted by now. and yes, you are really desparate arent you? c1000 with no internal drive is a killer. when i had mines, how i wished someone like me would of posted the drivers. I would not of sold the c1000. but remember that it does not work on the pdaxrom......so far from what i have seen and nobody posting it working. only for sharprom based roms.

Anyone with hacking skills can ported to pdaxrom?

well, up to beta1, the sd driver in pdaXrom was the same as the sharp one since it is binary only.

I hate to ask, but would this new driver work on the 5500?
Cresho
since i own a sl5500, ill look things up and ill post after. for the sl5500, directory for installer is different, also kernel is different, So far, installer will not work for it. Tried mannually installing it and still does not work but i did basterdized the file structure. So ill give that another go another day.

OK, a clarification. It's only been a couple of days so I don't know about "stability". Seems good so far. One weird thing - if I try to install a new ipk to SD using the Add/Remove Software app I get the error message "Not enough storage memory for installation" However, can still install to SD from command line..

how about another application? how big is your swap space, how full is your internal drive?

how is /tmp doing? how much of the 1MB is free? if the command line works and the gui doesn't, then I suspect, the free space calculation was probably hardcoded to an upper limit and hence your 4GB is beyond what is "possible", it might have gotten confused and taken your free space as a negative value instead smile.gif
Cresho
with all the symlinks, mazathon going on the zaurus, i am even surprised to see it work at all tongue.gif

Did you try another installer? Different program?

When I ask re /tmp it says:
Used 44.0K Available 980.0K Use 4% /dev/shm.

Oh well, I'm not going to obsess about it, since I can get around the issue..

I tested this on my C3000 running the factory Sharp rom, with an
A Data 2 GB SD card, Model #: SD 2G 50X

Purchased from Newegg.com for $48.99!!!! That's right, $48.99 for
a 2GB SD card!

http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16820211029

This card is working great in our Canon Powershot A620 and after
updating to this driver is now working just as well in my C3000.


Thanks for the driver update!

I always been wondering if this option would work on the handheld without the driver update. Can you confirm this? THis was my burning question when i owned a c1000.

This information can be very usefull to sl5500 and sl6000 and c860 users.

He basically took my ipk for a ride and improved on it by adding install scripts. Is this correct?
icruise
Yep. And in case anyone was wondering, I don't think there's anything about the package he made that relates to his special kernel.
chyang
I tested on my Z with my newly ZZF bought corsair 133x sd, copy from the microdrivr to sd can achieve 1MB/s . It seems not so slow but not fast,too.
rickh
Just to chime in, the new driver loaded fine on my C3000, stock Sharp Rom. Inserted PNY 2 gig card, loaded about a gig of mp3s on it, started to play files while transferring via wireless scp. No problems whatsoever.

There are two sd drivers now.  The first one which I slaped together only replaces a link to where the original driver stays. The tetsu driver improves upon the older driver by adding a script. tetsu added postinst and postrm scripts to the new version.  Uninstalling my old ipk would most likely make your zaurus sd drive not operational unless you do a hard reset or most likely a nand restore.  NOthing wrong with my driver.  The tetsu one is more correct.  Download the tetsu sd driver.  I am keeping the old sd up just incase.
*

I think everyone who has read this, and are only reading the followups, should re-read the first post again.
It has been updated.

I have a question, If I wanted to install the tetsu version, could I just install it on top of Cresho's version, without first uninstalling Cresho's version?

Anybody got a link for that?

I tried Cresho's original instructions on my 860, by the way, and it wound up not recognising my SD slot at all. Had to uninstall and reboot. I'm not going to go buy a big SD card until I'm sure I can use it!

Hi Cresho,

one question:

If I install that driver, will it also be available in the emergency console boot, available via B+D boot so I can use backups on the 2GB SD card from there?

Thanks
daniel
Cresho
I assume it not to work since i have a few people stating that it does not work. You would most likely need to eject the card before doing this procedure. Others use compact flash.

You can try how ever and post if you had no problems.
