Control CF Card?
Hello, I have a GPRS CF Card and normaly when you plug it in at /dev/ttyl0 (or something like that)
But, this CF card is in the USB. So its USB -> CF -> GPRS.
Who can tell me who to directly talk to the USB Drive?
Since I really want this to work.

Err.. don't exactly totally understand what your asking for but usually when you insert your CF card into a USB slot the syslog file tells you how the kernel has mounted the CF card.
Run "sudo tail -f /var/log/messages" in an xterm, and once its running, insert your CF card and you'll see how the syslog handles the mounting and how the USB drive its mounted.
The all your got to do then is read & write to it like you normally do to any disk.
Run the "mount" command to see how the CF card is mounted.
To unmount your CF card, thus ensuring the system syncs i.e.: saves, all data written to it before you take it out of the CF socket, just "sudo umount DEV" where DEV is the CF name.
