USB memory stick app bugfixed in time for British Summer Time

Fat32FS, a filing system module that allows Iyonix users to use PC-formated USB drives that are over 2GB in size, is now up to version 1.14. Developer Jeff Doggett said he had tidied up the code a bit and corrected a problem with file timestamps after the change to BST.

I thank Jeff for his continued work on this as its vital that we can read and write to bigger divces and cards etc. Having to explain previously to pc users that I can't use that card or USB Hard Drive because it's bigger than 2gb, is a sad state ! Otherwise I have had success in using such devices. Thanks again for your support Jeff. Brian

Excellent work from Jeff. The module doesn't restrict the user to just reading and writing to flash memory - it can be used successfully to read/write at acceptable speeds to external USB hard-drives and is cheaper than using a NAS device.
