I just noticed this sale on EBay...

Granted you'd probably want to put in an offer instead of clicking Buy-It-Now (I mean $499 seems a tad steep, IMHO).


And personally, I ask for an actual picture of the item vs. the stock one being shown (they are listed as used after all).

(Disclaimer: I have no association with the seller... Always do your homework and check a every seller's feedback before buying purchasing anything.)

EDIT: Oops, I should have posted this in "Deals and Great Z Buys" forum... sorry about that.

I am using a DLink WIFI card and it always worked great.

Lately I started using my Z again and when I put the card in it is recognized but it never connects, it just says "Network offline".

Sometimes I eject and re-insert the card and I get card unsupported (but ussually it recognizes it the first time, this only happen of Eject/reinsert.

Oddly, on my C3200 it shows some activity in the WIFI monitor app, but while it shows the MAC address of the card for a while, the Mac Address will then suddenly disappear but the activity remains (signal strength/quality strong, but very little IO since it doesn't connect).

Anyway, I am wondering if this indicates that the CF card is dying/dead or if there is some other tests I should try before giving up the ghost on this one?

So today board statistics say: "19 guests, 11 members, 1 anonymous members "

Yesterday (and every time I peak in) was about the same, but there are pretty much no new posts beyond the occasional one every month or so.

So I don't get it... I mean if there are more or less about 20 people on the board on a given day, and even half are guests, how come so few posts?

I realize that this is an older device and there are often about 50% guests browsing, but I have seen more activity on really vintage sites (like Tandy, Amiga, etc).

Anyone got an idea what's up?

Also, if you're here and reading this, post a reply just as a shout-out... at least passerbys will feel posting is worthwhile (since there is an audience).

Just my 2 cents.

And yeah, I been away a long time as well, not blaming people for that, just lost as to why there seem to be users but no posts or conversations.

Hello all,

Can C860 support a 16GB CF Card?

I want to buy one, but not sure if it will be too large...so I don';t want to get stuck with a card I cannot use.

Also if it is supported...is it supported implicitly or would I need a special driver? (and if so where would I find it?)

Thanks in advance for the help.
