Maybe there isn't a problem on the GX? Was the original poster on a GX
or GS? I have a GS and I can tell you that my call260 exhibits the
exact same behaviour (using 2.6)... and I haven't tried it under 2.5.1
- -- but under 2.5.1 it seems as if I have to mount it with a "c:" and the
disk can't be partitioned/newfs'd as a unix file system. I was going to
use CFS on mine (under 2.6) but uf I have to revert to a pcfs just to
use it, I will do that and use it as a scratch pad instead. *sigh*.
Arno -- you've mentioned a few times that your card works. I'm happy
for you -- but there is diffenately more than one other person out there
who has a call260 that doesn't work.
