it's probably the IDE mode thing that the other posters were talkingt about.
Several manufacturers disabled these microdrives and made them IDE mode only to prevent people from buying mp3 players, just to rip the microdrive out. sorry, I tried...

But it works with my PC  

This sucks.  I paid $10 for it.  Lol.  Anyone know a way to get around that?  Someone mentioned modding on an old thread[how?].

And it doesn't look like there is any news on modding a MicroDrive to fit intenally.  I opened the Zaurus before and looked.

What I meant is to try another CF card in the same reader, and see if it mounts.
If it does work, then the Zaurus recognizes your reader.
If it doesn't work, then the Zaurus isn't recognizing your reader

I don't have any other CF card.  My world revolves around SD cards.  I will have to get a CF card from my *cough*grandmom*cough*.  She was the first person in our family to get a digital camera.

try another "known to work" CF card in the reader hooked to your Z.
I have Iomega USB zip drives, that have to be mounted manually using commandline.
I'm thinking if the reader + drive works on a PC, it should work with the Zaurus.

I don't have any other CF card reader to use.

I can use my 4 slot 12 in 1 card reader to use CF cards on my Zaurus, but I'm running Cacko and I think you may need a USB module for it to mount automatically.
My 12 in 1 card reader only shows the CF slot in the filebrowser on my Z.
I think it only mounts the first slot, since the CF slot is the first one.
(It doesn't work with the SD slot, which is the 3rd slot).
I also have a single slot 5 in 1 reader that works in Cacko with SD/MMC cards.
If your'e using Sharp rom, you may need to use the USB modules in the Cacko feed.
I have this installed in Cacko Lite:
get it here:
This doesn't solve the problem of the Zaurus not reading the microdrive directly in the CF slot, but it should work with a card reader hooked up to USB, unless the microdrive pulls more than 3.3 volts.
The Zaurus USB host only works with devices at or under 3.3 volts.
A desktop PC has 5 volts at the USB port.

If any of the above is incorrect, someone else please step in and correct me.

It did not work in the slot, in the card reader, or in the card reader on a powered USB hub.

I'm curious, if it works in a CF reader, is it really disabled, (ie IDE only)?
Or you can try this, if your CF reader is an external reader, try plugging it into the USB host on your Z
Or, try it in a camera and see if it works in the camera.

It obviously did work in my USB CF card reader with my PC ;-)  I couldn't get the Zaurus to use the USB card reader.  Makes me want to use desktop Linux.

Any ideas?

I bought a "dead" iPod Mini 4gb from a friend for $10 and pillaged the MicroDrive.  It works fine on my PC with my USB CF card reader.  But I can't get the card to work in my Zaurus.  It will detect it as anonymous memory sometimes.  But it just doesn't read it.  I formatted it Fat32 on my PC and worked great with my PC.

How can I get it to mount on my Zaurus.  I read a couple of others threads while searching but nothing worked.

Sharp Zaurus SL-C1000.  Cacko.

Hardware Mods / Artic Silver 5/heatspreads Increase Stability?
« on: September 11, 2006, 11:38:50 am »
I was thinking if you could get some small thin copper heat spreads and some thermal compound/epoxy and put it on the processors of the Z if it would increase stability for overclocking??
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=140815\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
I think there is room.  It already got some sort of metal cover over the processor.  I have noticed my Zaurus going unstable while going at 624mhz.  It won't go for too long and gets a little hot.

I plan on adding a small copper block if I can fit it and see what that does.  Or something thinner.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Kernal Panic Upon Flashing

Ahhh!  My Zaurus won't format itself nor flash to another ROM.  OpenZaurus just comes up everytime.  I was trying to install Cacko again.

« on: August 15, 2006, 09:07:43 pm »
I'm flashing my Zaurus SL-C1000 and while it is going through the process of installing the latest version of OpenZaurus, it gives me this "Kernal Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"

It does this everytime.  I'm using an SD card.  Any known issues?   Soloutions?

Ebay new? lol...

I seems as if it is faulty... i dont have this card so I cant vouche for the compatibility... but it could be a software issue...

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=137744\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
Yeah, eBay.  Dammit, this is my 2nd card.

I was reading earlier about changing the wireless configurations on the Zaurus.  I might just reflash for OpenZaurus and try that.

This is a new card.

I'm having trouble on getting it to access my network.  I put in all the info and it tries to get on my network but says it is offline.  Lights turn on and all.  Then when I go to Wireless Monitor it says wireless device not installed even though it is recognised as a Netgear Wireless card.
