Are you running DSL embedded from MSwindows via QEMU?
If so, your DSL embedded system is unable to see the contents of your USB drive or any other files on your real hard drive.
QEMU is a program that creates a virtual PC or fake PC and runs it from inside a Window in your native operating system.
It works like commercial products called VMWare and Virtual PC.
Your virtual computer is unable to see your real hardware, including the files on the rest of your USB drive.
However, it is possible to get to these files in an indirect way, via Windows network shares.
You can use the "Share as" function inside MS Windows Explorer to "share" your USB drive letter on the Network.
Then, from inside DSL, you can install SAMBA and use it to connect to the network drive and get at your files.
Or you can use the built-in SMBCLIENT program to tranfer files in an FTP-like fashion.
Here is an example:
Go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt and open up a command prompt inside Windows. Then type:
and write down your Windows IP address. Example: 192.168.1.10
then type "Exit" to exit the command prompt.
Then go into DSL and choose Apps -> Net -> smbclient
Then type in:
Share: SharedDocs (or replace with your share name)
To look at directory type:
To get files type:
to get all files with doc extension down to your DSL computer, for example
to send all files with txt extension back to MSWindows computer.
Hope this helps.
