How can I connect an HDD to my BOB-05? Where can I get drivers for my USB-Device?

The BOB contains a USB-Host to connect peripherlas to the PDA and a USB-Client to connect the PDA to a Computer.

All devices that are connected to the USB-host need a driver for the installed operating system (Windows Mobile/ WindowsCE). This driver must be provided by the device manufacturer like on any desktop OS also. Because a USB-host can not be found very often on PDA most manufacturers don't build drives for PDA OS.

Some drivers are already implemented to BOBs OS by roda Computer. For example USB-Serial adapters with FTDI Chipset & drivers for a USB-Storage Key. To use a harddrive you need a driver for the USB>IDE Bridge and the HDD itself. These drivers are not implemented to the OS.
