Subject: Re: PDA to Jukebox

Re: PDA to Jukebox

From: Dan Frey <freyd_at_cassens.com>

 Wanted to let you know that it works. I have a Toshiba E755, which I got of ebay for $200, I bought the USB host cable from Toshiba's website for $5, I have an Archos FM Recorder. I loaded the "CFU1U" USB mass storage drivers from ratocsystems, I then connected the USB host cable to the E755 then connected the Archos to the E755 and it showed up. I then watched a few minutes of Arrested Development on my PocketPC using Betaplayer.

  I believe the Toshiba E550G, E740, E750, E755, E800, E805, E830W all have the USB host option, you just need to download the correct driver.
