For my surprise I found a couple of days ago that x11 ROM has a utility for switching to the c860 storage mode biggrin.gif

I don't know if this has been reported previously in this forum, I'm following it since it was created and don't remember.

It's the /etc/usbcontrol script.

net and storage options worked me ok, switching z between normal (c760) and storage (c860) modes. Tested with several linux boxes and windows.
serial mode hanged my Z, but I think it's useless (for me)

But I have a problem: in storage mode I can only access to my CF card, not my SD. I've tried many things: remove CF and restart, mount, umount,...
Also tried to modify /etc/hotplug/usbstorage.agent, but any change seem to work. Is it really called when /etc/usbcontrol storage is executed?

A solution could be make a ln -s fron my CF to my SD or even internal flash, but I can't since my CF is vfat (windows compatibility :x )

Any ideas?

As I remember, you can use the USBDConfig tool under /Apps/Settings to setup the usb storage mode. My windows desktop was able to recognize the usb storage. But it asked me to format the disk (maybe because I formatted the sd card to ext2 format). I didn't format since there are data on my sd card. You can have a try.

Your sd card is probably busy (ie it has open processes on it).

Can you eject it ?

If so eject, reinsert and then try it. If not, the find out what processes are tying it up (lsof or fuser).

Thak you both! USBDConfig works me almost fine biggrin.gif

I think I'm loving too much the command line :wink:

I don't now how it really works, and why the scripts don't, but...

But I have still a problem: it works fine on windows, but I can't umount Z from linux !! (device is busy always)

It worries me. I can't switch between CF and SD. I don't trust much file transfers to a filesystem you should remove without cleanly unmount...

Same happens to anybody?
