OK thats worked great thanks. Little confused though I can't see anything on the drive except a single shortcut with title 'data', but I can't click on it. Says there is only 8kb used on the drive, and 3.42gb free.
How does it work then if I copy from my laptop to Zaurus where will the files go? What about if I wanted to do it the other way round and copy from Zaurus to laptop?
Thanks again mate, you've been so helpful these last few days!!
You are looking at your FAT partition. It is mounted as /data
If you do a df -h in a console, you'll see it as
/dev/hda3 and mounted on /data
It is empty because you haven't copied anything to it yet.
I'm not sure what the "data" shortcut is for, meanie will have to answer this. I have tried to delete it, but it always comes back.
When using storage mode, you can NOT view or work with your linux partitions, you'll only be able to access SD, CF, or your FAT formatted /hda3 (/data)
The above is mainly referring to people that use windows on their PC/Laptops
There are exceptions to being able to access your linux partitions when using USB storage mode, but that is better left to someone with more linux knowledge than me.
One instance would be someone that uses linux only on their PC/Laptops, (and there are a large number of people here that use linux on their other machines)
