    How large is the CF card?

    Psions doesn't recognise larger FAT systems than FAT16, so there's a limit to the size of individual partitions.
    You may need to partition the CF card to got it to work in the Psion.
    If you have Atelier EDU, that would be good...
    (Just remember that EDU likes partitions to be a multiple of 2 size; 32, 64, 128, 256, 512MB)
    If not, DiskPart on Windows, or Gparted on Linux is the logical first step.

    BTW;
    The first Geminis are now coming off the production line and are about to be shipped out.

    I recollect a similar/same formatting problem with cf cards for 5MX. I used
    to solve it via booting a tosh 310 laptop (with attached usb cf card reader)
    from a floppy based OS. The included format command made readable 5MX cf
    partitions. If no recollect a similar/same formatting problem with cf cards for 5MX. I used
    to solve it via booting a tosh 310 laptop (with attached usb cf card reader)
    from a floppy based OS. The included format command made readable 5MX cf
    partitions. If nobody else answers re the archive, ask again and I'll try
    &dig out the details.

    Cheers.

    Hello,

    Maybe I am missing something, but I cannot find any way to search the
    archives for specific subjects or keywords.

    I am having a problem with CF cards that were formatted on a Windows
    computer, but give the message "Disk Not Present" when inserted into a Psion
    5MX or NetBook. I'm sure that this topic must have come up in "The Digest"
    at some point, but I really do not have the time to browse through 2955
    issues over a period of 17 years.

    If there is a better way to locate information in "The Digest," please let
    me know.


    Thanks,

    Phil

    Hi,

    maybe you have already noticed. Digest # 2955 does not exist. This was a
    bug in the digest scripts.
    Sorry.
