    WinCE.Net

    Hi there, I have just finished creating a build of CE.Net that supports an Eden ITX VIA board (Im running the 500mhz , 133mhz FSB version). All runs great and boots from a 16mb flash no problem as the image is only about 8mb and obviously boots loads faster than Win9x etc. I have also sorted out WiFi support using the standard Cisco Wince drivers so copying files to HD is no problem.

    Now im just wondering if anyone has written any decent car pc software for CE3x or CE.Net? If so it would be great to have a look at it before I go off and write my own.

    Ta

    I don't know if anyone has written any software, but I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in a CE ITX platform.

    Did a quick search, and I found this: http://www.xaudio.com/

    Would allow for development of a music front end.

    Can you use many of device drivers for WinXP on WinCE.Net?

    I already have a Epia800 + Laptop Drive + LilliputTouchscreen + Belkin 54g Wifi card running MediaCar on Win2k

    The setup is fine but its so damn slow to load. Well over a minute from cold.

    Your WinCe + somethinglike mediacar would be the perfect arrangement as I don't really need the features in XPe (which I playing with at the moment) but desperately would like something that boots faster.

    Already have the CF-ide Adapter and 64mb card on standby

    Im in the process of talking to these guys but "The Xaudio SDK is available immediately for a one-time license fee of $25,000." Its allot of money =< Im trying to put something together that I can pass on at a low cost (If I decide its good enougth) Just to cover the licence costs of CE really.

    No the Device drivers are specific to CE and have to be written or provided. I was using a VIA EPIA VE5000 Mini-ITX Mainboard [EPIA - VE500], the low end one. This was all working fine but I wanted to get wifi working, I managed to build in the cisco wifi drivers but had problems with the PCI to PCMCIA card. I have ordered another board with built in PCMCIA and CF card slot (VIA Epia MII 6000 Mainboard [MII6000]). This looks like the best board to get if you want to do embedded + wifi. I should imagine most people wouldn't want wifi so a CE build could be done - the wifi system.

    I am thinking of doing a release of the system when it is ready, how is your Belkin Wifi connected????

    Do youy know if there is a PCMCIA vertion? If so it might have CE drivers. Dont know if that would make it work with PCI though =/ but we could give it a try if it has a PCMCIA sisterer card.

    Yes it does as I own that too but don't have the PCMCIA convertor or the space in the case for that matter.

    Its the F5D7000uk but I can only see XP/W2k/ME or 98se drivers on the belkin website
