This does not work for those who store their Messaging/Attachments/PIE Cache on their storage card. Once it dismounts the storage card, WM5 creates a folder named 'Storage Card' on the internal storage and when you remount the real storage card, it gets mounted as "Storage Card2"
The same thing will happen if you will start such configured IE with card removed.
Just dont launch IE while Mass Storage activated/card absent, and it will be perfectly fine.
I store IE cache on card and never noticed a prob
Currently I'm using version 1.21, if I try to activate WM5torage when Activesync has already been launched (i.e. the first time you sync the PPC with PC via USB cable) the software pops "Cant switch to Mass Storage USB driver, error 1f" (same msg of previous version). To recover from this situation the only solution is to soft reset the PPC.
Instead of soft reset, try just to kill the ActiveSync process (via "Starts | Settings | System | Memory | Running Programs"). Tell me, will it help?
Now I have another problem though; my computer Mac + Os X doesn't mount the phone on the desktop. When I look at the system profile it does see a USB window mobile device. Anybody got it working on a Mac?
Maybe Mac works with USB mass storage in somewhat different way... I had to break some specs there to make working with Windows XP specifically and to defuse some "anomalies"(bugs?) in 8300 usb driver.
Don't suppose it's possible to alter the program to export the main file system? As I currently don't have any easy way to access these files from linux.
This will be a lot harder... Because flash disk is exported on the USB by per-sector basis - so when card have FAT/FAT32, Windows will perfectly see it, you can re-format it, etc. All I have to do is pass to/from the host the sectors it will request, nothing else.
But built-in file system is other thing. I dont even think its a true "disk", its partly in the rom, etc. The only reliable way is to export it is via Network Share-like way, and there is no such protocol on USB bus.
