I think yugami or someone similar found that the internal memory is an actual chip soldered to the board...

I thought I read somewhere that the internal memory is just an sdcard -- hope it doesn't pop loose! That would be bad.
there are 4 chunks of the 4 gig internal memory (which is a single chip soldered into the main board) that are publicly exposed inside the edge. These add up to about 3.5 gig

ubi:system 329928 168456 161472 51% /system
ubi:userdata 329928 183104 146824 55% /data
ubi:cache 330400 36 325528 0% /cache
ubi:storage 2668352 387296 2276220 15% /intstorage

the remaining storage is probably the boot and restore sections that house the kernel image and the code that knows how to access update.zip on external memory.

One of those "others" you mention is intstorage which is the actual mount point of the internal memory Looking inside that directory you will see it contains a vfat.img file which is the actual filesystem you access when accessing the internal memory. This is mounted via a loopback device to the directory /intsdcard

the directory /sdcard is simply a link to the directory that is the mount point for whatever storage you selected to use. so if you selected SD Card if you did an ls -l on the root directory you would see a listing like so

sdcard -> /mnt/sdcard

It works here (on my EE). The Library is moved to the external SD card, too.

The PC here also gets two different drives. The first one does have the "media" in it. The other one is empty.

Before doing the update to Ermine my EE only exported one drive. Anyone know what may be attached to the second drive? I wonder if there's a way to attach the old "sdcard" from internal memory.

yugami, do you know how to fix a problem with a vfat.img file? I think that's my problem. For some reason my /intsdcard is empty and the /sdcard has all the info. I'm trying to make it a link to the correct file, as it seems that it is the issue. You can read all about it here:

I think Yugami may have sold his/her PE. Posted in October offering it for sale. Still around the forum, though, so if you think they might remember you could send a PM.

Thanks for the heads-up!

This is all very hazy so use at your own risk.

Before doing any of this I would recommend using the internal tool to move the Library too and from the external SDCard a couple times to try and force everything back into alignment.

Unfortunately I didn't make any notes on the format of the fstab format used by the edge if this is what is messing up.

You can check to see what is pointing were using the command ls -l from the command line. You want /sdcard to point to where you have your library setup.

If you need to make a new vfat.img this is what I would try from the command line:
vfat.img is just a file that is a hunk of space mounted via loopback (a linux think allowing files to be used as devices) the file is 2.5 gigs large and formated with the vfat file system

making the file:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/intstorage/vfat.img bs=1024 count=2621440

formating the file: mkfs.vfat (using a man page on mkfs.vfat so the busybox might be different)

mkfs.vfat -F 32 /intstorage/vfat.img
