Does this cause various other libraries to need updating as well We believe the old version of net-snmp (5...

3 Replies and 1326 Views readwrite access to NTFS formatted SD card  1326  3 Started by  Rob Birkner Hello, I'm trying to set up our Torpedo so that we can create large files (>2GB) on an SD card formatted so that it can be read later on windows systems.  It seems that a volume formatted as NTFS or exFat is needed to support that seamlessly.  It looks like the BSP supports NTFS, but not exFat. I've configured ltib to include the NTFS and NTFS rw driver(s) and formatted the SD card partition as NTFS, and can mount the partition so that it appears to be readwrite, but I still can't w...
