The nanoPEB, built by Jaime Malilong, comes with a 32 MB compact flash card.
Well, he has tested the nanoPEB with SANDISK Compact Flash cards up to the size of 1024 MB = 1 GB.
Since we are in the year 2010 now, it's really hard to get your hands on such small cards.
I have bought a Kingston 4 GB CF Card, because that was the smallest card in the electronic shop avaiable.
The nanoPEB & TI booted up correct, I executed the format and mount commands but saving an item always led to an I/O Error 64 (which means no free disk space). My guess is, that the controller and or the software is unable to cope with everything greater than 2 GB size. My guess is some addressing issue.
Next I bought a Transcend 1 GB CF Card. Thats the size Jaime successfully tested his device with. If I insert this card, the TI won't even boot up (no title screen).
On the computer side I tried everything inside the "Disk Management console" and in the command program "diskpart.exe". I tried forcing FAT instead of FAT32, I tried shrinking the size of the partition.
I will now try to find a Sandisk 1 GB Compact Flash Card and will keep you up to date.
