SDHC / SD adaptor or CD adaptor doesn't like at all the partition change!
So when you use such device ALWAYS do this:
- start the upgrade / downgrade procedure and finish it.
- Power OFF / Power ON your Azbox (not a reboot, the DOM needs to reinitialised and a reboot doesn't do it!!!)
- Start again the same flashing (this time the partition will already be created, so the file copy will work properly).
Then you won't have problem, otherwise for sure the file copy procedure gets corrupted.
Ideally Azup.exe should ask to power off / power on after it change the partition, before starting to copy the new files.
This works fine with a true DOM (original or Transcend one) but not at all with the SD(HC) or CF adaptor.
In the adaptor it is clearly mentioned that the card is not hot swappable, but it seems that for this kind of adaptor, the fact to change the partition is like if you swap disk!
If you have somewhere on your network a shared folder using NFS, you can mount it on your Azbox.
NFS is the standard Linux/Unix sharing method.
In windows world they use CIFS, so don't confuse NFS and CIFS.
IP_server = IP address of your server (example: 192.168.1.100)
/share_server = the NFS share that you create on your server (example: /Media)
/where_you_want_on_Azbox_local_directory = the mount point in your E2 Azbox (example: /media/MyServer)
We will create on the E2 Azbox a folder /media/MyServer where we will mount a share called Media on a server with IP: 192.168.1.100
In telnet on your E2 Azbox:
mount -t nfs IP_server:/share_server /where_you_want_on_Azbox_local_directory -o rw,nolock,intr,udp
To automount at each reboot your share please add the command line at the end of the: /etc/init.d/rcS file
mount -t nfs 192.168.100:/Media /media/MyServer -o rw,nolock,intr,udp
