10.3: Install an older extension to fix broken USB drives
Authored by: iDG on Nov 23, '03 03:46:09PM
This fix, ofcourse has his number of "side effects", that I did notice only a pair of days after posting it. In my quest for a solution for this problem I ended up in downloading the sources for msdosfs.kext for both xnu 7 and xnu 6, and I discovered that there's indeed a bug in the code. Apparently it pops up only in relatively large drives and in uncommon situations...

I was able to correct the malfunctions and now I do have a Panther version of the msdos.kext that works fine. Probably I can't distribute it and I can't even post the patch... Well...

I've run into a problem with a USB flash drive that's severly bugging me, can you email me a patch, or instructions on patching it myself? Any help would be swell, thanks!
