I need some feedback from anyone who's had problems using their CF cards after having written to it from Audrey.
I followed all the instructions highlighted in many of the posts. Here's what I did.
1> bought a 32 MB Sandisk CF and inserted it straight out of the box into my Antec Pshute reader.
2> Through Explorer I could see the CF and it showed that it had close to 32 MB (so the card was good)
3> took the CF out the reader and put it into the Audrey (which was ON at the time)
4> did devb-cf and Audrey showed " CF Card inserted ... etc ..." (so it recognised it)
5> Now, I wanted to backup Audrey (CF image), so I followed the normal steps:
Typed: cd /dev
Typed: cat fs0p0 fs0p1 > /dev/cf
6> After 1 minute or so the prompt came back, so I removed the CF.
7> Inserted CF back into my CF reader, and now WinXP nor Win98 will recognize the card anymore.
I also did these steps with a 128MB card and with a 10MB card (just CAT'ed a small file to it from Audrey) and EVERY time the card becomes totally useless.
So now I'm left with 3 dead cards.
IMPORTANT NOTE : I loaded WinHex and noticed that it thought that my cards had Terabytes !!! worth of space. Obviously the CF parameters have changed somewhat.
Can someone please give me some insight as to why this is happening ... TIA
