Re: Compatible software

Thanks.

If you don't mind me asking what are you using your DT for?

Re: XPe image

I have a 512 flash I pulled from the DT i modded that has XPe with all the drivers except IR. I'd be happy to dd you a copy but be aware that it is password locked from the grocery warehouse in which it was used. Also it has some inventory control software that steals focus and covers the desktop. I...

Ubuntu 8.04 working

I used the Ubuntu 8.04 graphical installer and default settings. It seemed to detect the hardware ok. There is an Ubuntu penmount driver but i haven't tried it out yet. It seems a little slow n bloated but with tweaks it might be usable. 9.10 did not work past loading the kernel. More later. Howard ...

ASK-IR, IRDA, FIR, WTF!

I'm having problems with the IR port on my 368. Windows sees it as com port 2 or unknown device depending on the settings i use in the bios. I've used several different XP drivers, including the OEM ALI chipset FIR driver. Puppy and Nimblex didn't let me use the port either. Nothing I have tried has...

Re: Hardware Mods

To complete my mod I bought a kensington usb micro bluetooth adapter for the stock usb port and a d-link dwl-652 "Extreme N" pcmcia wireless card.

I had to break out the rotary tool and shave off a quite a bit of the d-link's antenna shield to make it fit in the slot though.

Re: Hardware Mods

Use a voltmeter or continuity tester to verify each strand before you solder them on the dock connector and write the wire colors down just in case. Shorten the wires to a length you feel comfortable with while remembering that you have to cram them inside the case when you are done. Strip each wire...

Re: Hardware Mods

Remove the dock connector from the motherboard. There are two ways to accomplish this next step; Run the wires through the hole on the motherboard (hard but keeps the wires out of the way) or just solder them on the dock connector (easy but you have to fuss with the wires to keep them from being pin...

Re: Hardware Mods

Now attach the battery case to the DT and screw it on if you have drilled the small holes that match the battery case cover plate's holes.  Take the exacto knife and carefully strip the usb cables of their sheaths so you expose the individual strands. You can leave a little bit of the sheath near th...

Re: Hardware Mods

Now we get to the fun stuff.  :) While the battery case is not attached and the cables are through the DT case you need to fold the ide cable so that it sits flat inside the battery case and has the correct amount sticking through. To do this you need start by placing the cable end where i have mark...

Re: Hardware Mods

You can optionally drill two tiny holes in the DT368 back that line up with the holes which hold the battery's metal cover on. Using the screws that were taken out of the battery case in the first step you can secure your modded battery case to the DT. Now take the 44pin ide cable and use the rotary...

Re: Hardware Mods

Use the drill to make two pilot holes on the rear of the dt368 case in between the holes that the external battery's lower tabs go in.

Then use the rotary tool to connect the pilot holes and smooth the slot.

Re: Hardware Mods

Then place the ide to cf adapter in the battery case, facing up, and hot glue it in place. Put it in so that a cf card would stick out about 5mm. Do the same with the female usb cables on the other end. I flattened the lip around the plug so it would fit in the hole then bent it back to keep it from...
