    Hi, I'm not familiar with this particular board, but I read here:
    GSG: DM365 DVEVM Additional Procedures - Texas Instruments Embedded Processors Wiki

    that this device has NAND on MTD. I'm no expert with this stuff, but I think MTD devices have 2 parts, a character device and a block device. I'll bet your interested in the block device and that is typically located in /dev/mtdblockN were 'N' is a partition number.
