I got TWO 4GB microdrives for my C860 and was curious if anyone had any great idea to use with all that storage...

MP3's and Moview are obvious, but what else?

Prolly should decided before I bought them ,but they were just too good a deal to resist (sorry no more avail for sale).

Thoughts?

1. Run a web server lol.
2. Create a google like search engine to spider the web and keep a cache of everything.

hmm, those are the first ideas that popped into my head. Probably not very practical. wink.gif

Sierra games for Sarien, Lucas Arts games for ScummVm, pocketworkstation and Xqt for a debian install that runs on top of Qtopia without having reboot, Zten and all the dictionary files you can load - there are quite a few of them and some of them are about 60Mb uncompressed, every ipk that you can download just so you have them available when you need/want them

Okay, still not knowing what wiki means?

Unless it was that place they used to surf during the Hawaii Brady Bunch episode.

I agree! Make your SL-C860 a portable library! biggrin.gif

Omi: THough I just have the one, I haven't been able to get it to work with my 860, aarrggghhh !@ Care to give me some of your words o' wisdom on how you got 'em going ? Mine shows the CF icon, but I can't get to anything, and mount seems to fail. I can use these on my PC (Xp Pro with a CF adapter), but no joy in the Zaurus. Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated.

Have you followed my detailed directions located here?:

The above is the process I used on BOTH drives and both auto-mount perfectly and work in Windows XP and Linux (sharp C860)

Let me know if it works for you.

Omicron, you're a genius ! Followed your instructions to the letter (even the paranoia part !) and it worked like a charm. Thanks so much for having this out here. This would INDEED be a great item for the FAQ's. laugh.gif

Personally, since I travel a lot and spend a ton of time on flights and waiting in airports, I just load 'em up with movies. I can get between 5 and 9 full-length movies on one 4Gb card and the quality is quite good. I get a lot of weird looks and curious questions, so that's the downside ! :-)

What are you using to convert your movies and which video player are you using?
