SAM Flex USB Pendrive Support?
Quite a regular

Can USB pendrives be mounted on SAM Flex? Just getting my Flex working and I have forgotten more than I remember on OS4x. Should there be a usbmassstorage.device in Devs?

Any help appreciated.

Yes most work, just insert and it should be recognised automatically, and appear on your workbench. You dont have to install or move any drivers I have never had any problems.
cheers

USB pen drive support is flaky - some pen drives work, others do not. Updated OS4 drivers should improve matters, when they are released.

No, the device is created on-the-fly by massstorage.usbfd.

It really depends of the brand/type you use.
I bought a Kingston 2GB drive and it works nicely

It is really just like Chris said. Out of four USB flash disks I tried only one worked - my iPod Nano

Yes, less than half on my USB hardware work on the SAM unfortunately and even some reported working on the A1 not work on the SAM.

BTW, I'm sure improvements have been made on the 1.x version of USB on the SAM

I pray each day for a small update on the hyperion site for USB 1.x on the SAM because IMHO It's importnat to have working USB on the SAM.

For USB 2.0, I know work has been done for that but no recent information about this point by the developper

Like Elwood, I have 3 Kingston Data travellers ranging from 512mb upto 8 gb and also a no name pen drive and they all work this is on a Micro A1 with OS4.1

I just wonder if any of those "Sticks" that don't work have the Windows only U3 technology on them? maybe worth checking

No! The SanDisk MicroCruzer i got defaults to Windows; works like any other flash driver if there's no 'Windows'.

Wow...

I have three "SanDisk"s of various sizes that work fine on the A1, but you're saying they may not work on the SAM? Gak!

I've discovered that my Flex (800 mhz) is /really/ sensitive to the 5 volt line on the power supply.

I had to swap a few power supplies I had lying around before I got USB working reliably. At first some devices would work and other wouldn't - or the keyboard would work until I plugged in a mouse, things like that.

If you have another power supply you can try, you might want to give it a shot.

One serious problem I've noticed with these drives is filesystem related incompatability. If you leave them formatted for Windows (FAT etc.) problems can occur due to the difference in permitted filename characters. Some AmigaDOS characters can not be used in Windows (FAT etc.) filenames and vice-versa. Ideally the OS 4.x USB would have some sort of character identification & translation filtering. For backups and Amiga use only, I've had good results with USB pen drives that I have reformatted with SFS/0. I've been able to reformat a few that didn't work "out of the box" for Amiga use only with SFS.
