I've installed the update and my 8GB usb stick is now visible.
Thanks sleepie. My ONEt has been in the drawer since the beginning of October, it's not much use to me at home without Flash9/10.
So I hadn't seen the new software for large file support, nor used the Elonex updates.
First: which update have you used -
a) the CNM pcmamfm-0.3.2.2-v1238(20081010).info (& .patch) or
b) the Elonex ONEt pcmanfm-0.3.2.2-1246(20081022) - which is in the automatic updating downloads
I assume they are both derived from the same PCMan File Manager, Linux based file manager for the X Window System.
This deals with the 32 bit addressing limitations, in similar fashion to enabling large drive support in DOS FDisk.
Second - Do you now see the 8GB as a single block of memory.
Third - have you tried an external hard drive?
CNM download says:
Adds support for External Hard Drives, SD Cards and USB Memory Sticks up to 32GB in capacity.
It's not clear whether only SD & USB are limited to 32GB, or whether any External Hard Drive is also limited .
