Largest Possible Cf / Sd Size For Diagnostics Menu
« on: January 15, 2007, 02:00:37 pm »
Hello,

what is the largest possible size the diagnostics menu of the SL-C1000 and Sl-X3x00 can handle to restore a NAND backup from?
Is there a limit?
SD probably 1GB due to the driver issue.
But CF?

Thanks

hmm, so let me put it another way:
Did anyone do NAND backup/restore options on 2GB or 4GB CF cards?
Did it work?

thanks

it depends on the brand and disk geometry, ie how many physical  cylinders vs logical cylinders...

Pretty sure I have used a 8GB Micro Drive to restore a NAND backup. "Standard" formatting: Fat32, on a sl-c1000 with Cacko 1.23 ROM.
