Got my CE today, very impressed so far!
I'm using the ICD driver to get started, and have formatted an SD card into a number of partitions. Given that the ICD driver doesn't support tos/dos partitions, I inserted and mounted a dos formatted USB flashdrive too and was planning on copying some hd modified games to my sd card partitions.
At this point I realized it was very simple to get the USB flashdrive mounted as a translated drive, but had to jump through a lot of steps to get an sd card partitioned and setup. It seems the CE is handling the larger size of my flashdrive for me, where the sd card had to be partitioned into many smaller partitions to mount to the ST.
So what is the benefit of using sd cards and tos hd drivers, where it seems you can just stick in a flashdrive and it works straight away with no partitioning? Am I missing something?
