USB CD drive for Win CE6

by Lachlan Hall / November 4, 2009 4:47 AM PST

I have a Win CE6 device that supports USB flash drives. I want to be able to substitute a CD drive for the USB flash drive without making any hw or sw changes to the Win CE6 device. Read only access to the CD drive is ok for my purposes.

Are there any drives you can recommend?

USB Host was only found on a few machines.

So without the make and model of this PDA it's 99% sure that it can not host a CD drive.

I have a win ce 6 device, by sylvania, as a book reader, and I use a USB Passport as the storage drive. It's ( the drive) has been in se for the unit for about a year now, no problems. I have also used Cruisers and PNY sticks for odd storage.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
