    Make your Pearl a virtual XP PC

    Advertisement



    I just did it and it works!!!

    I have a 1 Gig Micro SD card in my Pearl and this used LESS than 20 Meg of it.

    1. Connect your Pearl using the USB cable to your XP PC and turn on "Mass Storage" mode at the prompt. (You DO NOT have to have Desktop Manager running at all)

    2. Then, on your PC go to three w's and mojopac.com.

    3. Download the software to whatever drive your PC assigns to the Pearl.

    4. Follow the directions, the rest is self-explanatory.

    5. From then on, everytime you attach your Pearl to ANY PC via the USB port, you have your Virtual PC Environment with you.

    Try it, it really works!

    jopfer,

    Does this just save your windows Desktop Settings on your Pearl sd card? Or will this really allow any PC (not necessarily a Windows PC) do a USB Boot from the SD Card and run a limited version of Windows?

    Re: Make your Pearl a virtual XP PC

    Very interesting topic, and application from mojopac.
    Don't know about mojopac.com. Going by their website it seems to be
    very highly capable of running most of the normal Windows applications.

    On Pearl as an OS USB boot flash drive, correct me if I am mistaken:-

    If the Micro SD on the Pearl is capable of working as a USB drive-
    "without any interaction through the DM", I would think one should
    be able to use it as a USB boot with any OS that can run from a USB.

    But, a word of caution, the Micro SD would have to be formatted to
    a bootable mode if one wants to do it.
    So, any data on the Micro SD would get wiped out.
    Unless one had a reasonably huge Micro SD and created "partitions"
    on it to separate the OS from the Data.

    With the Pearl, you don't need desktop manager for your pc to see it as just another connected drive. When you atttach the Pearl to your pc via the USB cable you will get a prompt on the pearl asking you if you want the flashdrive to be recognized by the PC, just say yes, and it will connect as another drive. I did not have to re format the micro SD drive to install mojopac. You just go to the drive and click on the mojopac icon and run it. Yes, it carries your desktop settings.

    The owner of this thread was banned, I wouldn't try it. It might be risky.

    It's free for the basic version, which includes installing data and applications...interesting option. I'm going to try this out on my son's 80GB iPod and see how it goes.
