USB CompactFlash writers

Post by Michael Tomlinson » Mon Jul 21, 2003 4:02 am

I'm investigating the use of a USB-based compactflash writer to duplicate
compactflash cards for an embedded application.
Does the latest version of QNX support USB hosted mass storage type devices?
Is anyone using one successfully?
thanks,
Michael

I'm investigating too ! Have begun some trial but not reach the end ?;-(
Compact Flash on USB is viewed as a drive (SCSI drive, to be precise).
The good news : QNX 6.1 (and later, I can suppose) support USB hosted mass
storage type devices.
U can start your USB device with 'devu-uhci' driver & can view the result
with the 'usb' command.
The bad news : I do not found any driver that gives access to the flash as a
drive (a name in /dev that you can 'mount' or 'dinit' or 'format')
