It just seemed crazy to me that three minutes after I pulled this z50 out of the box that I would have to reset it to fix the CF card problem. So when the IBM forum suggested that I do this, I ignored the suggestion, figuring it was senseless. My wife tells me it must be a "man thing," that I refused to follow IBM's instructions.
If you are still having trouble with the CF cards, I would suggest the hard reset.
The CF card renaming problem is still there (a CE quirk). You know, each time you turn on the HPC your cards get renamed - storage card2, storage card6, etc...this creates a problem when you attempt to use shortcuts on the desktop to run apps on a CF card (NOT recommended.)
