CommentsWilhelm Bockey told us this device works fine with eComStation 1.1.

SPECS
Hardware:

+ Runs with NiCd battery (1.2V)
+ The radio is completely independent from the player. It is part of the earphones, has its own battery (CR2032, 20 hours - not tested). The volume cannot be changed.
+ USB 1.1 (\"Interface: USB 1.1, USB 2.0\" refers to the computer!)

Restrictions by the player:
+ Superfloppy / Harddisk: Both are supported. If it is organised like a harddisk, a primary partition is ok. A logical drive is not ok (\"Error Reformat Media\").
+ Filesystem: FAT16 (\"classic\" type 06h) and FAT16LBA (type 0Eh) are supported. VFAT is supported. (If a file has no tags, its filename will be displayed.)FAT32, NTFS are not supported.

Restrictions by the stick or by OS/2:
+ Partitioning / Formatting as a Superfloppy: - If the stick is cleared, it seems that it cannot report its size correctly. =t\'s not possible to use eCS\' LVM for partitioning. Take Win instead. =hen formatting it as a superfloppy (parameter \"/removable_as_floppy\")

CWUSBMSD 1.2b and IBM USBMSD 1.4 (2003-12-17) report an error. Clear the master boot record and use Win\'s format.
- Suppose the stick is organised like a harddisk. It will report 0 sectors (even under Win98 with its driver via Int13/AhH), if the type is FAT16LBA (0Eh). If the type is calssic FAT16 (06h), it will report the size computed by the partition entry (starting LBA + sectors in partition). =If the type is FAT16LBA, LVM will fail. If it is FAT16, LVM will run.

+ Geometry / Partitioning:
- Partitioning by Acer (delivered stick): 1 active primary partition FAT16 (type 06h) (0,1,6) - (47,217,48), starting at LBA 53, contains 502219 sectors Geometry stored in booter: 218 heads, 48 sectors/track.

CWUSBMSD 1.2b works, IBM USBMSD 1.4 (2003-12-17) does not!
- Partitioning by Win98 with the driver shipped with the stick: Geometry: 244 cylinders, 64 heads, 32 sectors/track. Run FDisk and Format. Now CWUSBMSD 1.2b and IBM USBMSD 1.4 (2003-12-17) work!


Hints:
+ Run chkdsk after attaching the stick to the computer, because the extended attributes (especially the long names) are lost. (Why??)
+ You can use VFAT2EA. It seems that the attached extended attributes are recognized after calling \"eject\" and \"lvm /rediscoverprm\".

Together:
If O: is the drive on the stick execute:
LVM /RediscoverPRM
CHKDSK O: /f
VFAT2EA O:
EJECT O:
LVM /RediscoverPRM

Before removing the stick execute:
VFAT2EA O: /b
EJECT O:

Comments: works fine (tested CD & MP3) with known limitations as from Juri Ivask tips. Volume control or remote control doesn't work (power and 'incredible surround' switches are OK), so you can adjust volume via software only.
