Congrat, your the first John.
Let's see what happen. I hope most devices will work, but I think according to Mr. Murphy they will not.
It was actually Torgamm from PocketPCFreewares.com who first saw the link
Anyway... DeJe... you'd been a big help on the Pocket PC community most specially on Cassiopeia community for bringing up more support on E-200's USB hosting capabilities. You got my vote on the next Pocket PC Awards
Keep up the good work!
I wanted to see if there was a new version of the mouse driver to update our site : http://ppcf.mklabs.com/index.php?soft=616
I also posted on a french forum (Cassiopeialand.com 's forum which is actually hosted by PocketPCParadise.com).
Someone managed to connect to a 40GB HD which appears as a 38145MB Storage card
thanks for that info. I really would like to read that thread full length. But altough I understand english a little, my french is terrible to nothing.
Anyway, it seams some other (than mine) devices are working, that's great!
40GB...unbelievable. What is the guy saying about performance? Can he play MP3 from that drive?
Here we go
Sorry but english is not my native language and I 'll do my best but you know how the french are
The firt interesting post for you is ylemer's one (2002-11-22 20:58):
Then there are posts about boxes to transform an IDE HD in a self-powered USB HD with links.
Then there is another post by ylemer (2002-11-23 09:24)
He speaks about another thread in which someone installed your driver to test a PCMCIA Card Expansion.
Then charletd (2002-11-23 15:49)
The last post I read is from 2Mylent (2002-11-23 20:46)
He wanted to use your driver with a 256MB Memory Key
(in this thread: http://forum.pocketpcparadise.com/viewtopic.php?topic=59899&forum=9&3)
But nothing worked and he tried something:
I hope this helps you
And one more time, sorry for my poor english.
Thanks Deje for this wonderful work. As mentionned by Torgamm, I have been playing around with a 40 Giga LaCie Pocket Drive through the USB port of the craddle.
The recognition of the HD is done in about... 1 second with a new USB Disk in Explorer.
Everything is working fine. I have done a complete backup of the datas (about 5 minutes with Copy and paste of the whole content of the E200).
Playing MP3 from the hard drive is quite smooth. for the videos, in mpeg, the mean reading speed is 15 to 20 i/s (I do not know wich unit is it, I can read it in the bar of Pocket TV) but can go down to 6 i/s when the file is very large (for instance, reading of an120 Mo mpg file...)
Once again, that's a nice piece of work.
Sad i am. :-(
1) I have the archos jukebox 6 gig hard drive / mp3 player.
(archos.com) I have installed the newest update file only (1.30R) and deje's driver. when I connect the archos drive, I get
"Unidenditied USB Device - error installing USB driver usbmsc.dll"
2) My imation usb multi memory card reader does NOT work. I tried with a compact flash AND an SD card. (this usb adapter reads CF, MM/SD, and Smart media, shows up under winme with generic usb storage drivers)
3) On a more positve note, the sandisk "cruzer" USB drive works just fine. Last week, sandisk told me "no drivers for pocketpc".
SO, one out of three is a start I guess!!
Torgamm, you give a good overview, thanks for that.
To some details. I am not sure if USB 2.0 devices are working at all. I do have a USB 2.0 HD and it's not even working on my PC with a USB 1.0 host.
Camera is the next point. Most newer cameras use a SCSI subclass which is not fully implemented. I have a very new Pentax Optio 330GS here for that kind of devices. Not working as for now.
Last not least multislot reader are not fully implemented also. The first slot is recognized only for now, or better the first slot presented.
CD-ROM is implemented but there is no UDFS driver for PocketPC 2002.
Great it is working with Iomega Zip drive.
Funny someone tried to use the PCMCIA 2.0 card. Unless you do not have the USB host drivers for this card, it will not work at all in the PPC.
ylemer, great! "i/s" showed in PocketTV is frames per second I think. 15 to 20 is really good, thats what I get from a CF II card in the slot on my E200.
None1: The Archos should at least recognized. Someone at a thread at the e740 forum used it. But slow access and some trouble copy larger files.
A funny screen shot :
Yes, it's in Mo, not in Ko
