xvFat Discussion

General Introduction

This is a memorandum page for the discussion about the xvFAT File System which enables the stable operation of the removable mass media on USB. Because of the interoperability with the PC, FAT will be an useful file system. However the Linux implementation of the file system is not taking account of the stable operation of the system when it is used for the removable media. In the worst case, Linux system would be panicked when it is removed inadequately.

On 25th May 2005, Sony have called for the private technical discussion on this technology. Sony showed their improvement of the FAT file system to make it "Panic Free" in most case of the user operation of removing media.

Notice to non Japanese speakers : We sincerely apologize to whom may not to be convenient in making conversation in Japanese. This session may include many discussion in Japanese.

Here, you may find the introduction of the XvFat.
