RE: Routers vs. PC's for routing - was list problems?
AFAIK standard (non-proprietary) CompactFlash, SmartCards, Memory Stick, et al, are seen as (removable) storage with typical allowed attributes. I can set a file/folder/card to 'locked' in my camera but when plugged into the computer this will show as 'read only.' Then again, router manufacturers are infamous for jiggering as much as possible to proprietary. Might still be able to 'administer' the card in another machine then install it in the proprietary device but that might void your warranty. :) Hey, they're just protecting their market share, right? Worked for Apple, oh, wait a minute... (/mnt asbestos underwear) Just my 2¢. -Al -----Original Message----- From: Steven J.

I was about to launch into a long explanation of what I want to do when I realized I wrote "write-only" instead of "read-only." I meant "read-only."
