I am attempting to use a 4MB Series 2 flash card with
the FTL in order to use it for file storage. I have
repeatedly attempted to format the card using the
ftl_format command. It produces the following output:
Partition size = 4 mb, erase unit size = 128 kb, 1
Reserved 5%, formatted size = 3814912 bytes
Erasing all blocks...
Writing erase unit headers...
I then run the ftl_check command on the card. it
Memory region info:
Card offset = 0x0, region size = 4 mb, access speed
= 200 ns
Erase block size = 128 kb, partition multiple = 512
No valid erase unit headers!
I then attempt to create an ext2 filesystem on the
card. the output is:
mke2fs 1.23, 15-Aug-2001 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
ftl_cs: FTL header not found.
ftl_cs: FTL partition is invalid.
mkfs.ext2: No such device while trying to determine
I'm really not sure what I am doing wrong here, since
i'm following the instructions in the HOWTO for pcmcia-
cs. Any help would be appreciated
