iPod Mini and eComStation
« on: 2012.01.17, 19:30:59 »

  I had just won an old iPod Mini and I am trying to use it under eComStation 2.1.
It has been formated by iTunes and eComStation recognizes it, assigning a drive letter;
on the other hand, no files are shown, I cannot write to it and the "Details" in the properties
notebook shows "UNKNOWN" filesystem.
  Anyone has been able to use an iPod attached to eCS / OS/2?

  I am using Lars' latest USB drivers (which are indeed great... no more traps when using USB
devices) and FAT32 driver supplied by eCS 2.1.

  Regards,

  DJC

Hi DJC

Maybe a case of the iPod needs to have a Volume created from the existing partition using LVM...  What size drive is involved?

Another thing you can try is to look at it with DFSee.  This should tell you what the file system is unless it is something special. 

If it is fat32 you can use the 'LVM information' from the 'Edit' menu to give the device a drive letter.

  Oddly enough, after installing latest ACPI drivers (which otherwise works flawlessly with /VW option in the nForce2 machine) the computer just hangs when iPod is connected to the USB port.
