    CompactFlash apps


    Im thinking about buying a Sharp SL-5500 Zaurus embedded-linux PDA, but before i do i want to know if i will be able to read and write to CompactFlash discs. Does anyone know if there are any linux apps that have easy CF read/write?

    And on a side note, has anyone bought the Zaurus? any comments on it?

    If you're buying it, I'd say it's plausible that the company who made it has made it CF-enabled if it has a CF slot.

    I don't think that there are any general CF drivers, since the bus implementation probably differs from device to device. The best way to find out is probably to send the manufacturers an email and ask.
