Re: Storage solution using PDA

I didn't think this discussion could turn into a Pocket PC discussion, but apparently there is a Pocket PC USB Mass Storage driver available. It's not something I would recommend if you are not a computer geek because it's pretty involved. People on Brighthand had gotten the e740 to read external USB HDs, which shows up as a USB Disk. See discussions here:

I believe e740 as well as e330/5 (but not my e310 or most other
PDAs) have USB HOSTS, therefore with the help of a special cable,
you can use USB devices with them such as a Archos Jukebox MP3
player that are not primarily designed for digital photo storage.
You will be able to use PDA to copy files with File Explorer from
Storage Card to the external device.

No current PDA's can use USB for transferring data, it's missing
from Microsoft's OS, ONLY via mass storage cards (CF SD MS MD)
and/or via PCMCIA 16 bit (not CardBus 32 bit).
