When you use the existing Windows Embedded CE Test Kit (CETK) storage device tests to communicate with a flash-based storage device, the CETK storage device tests may fail. This problem occurs when the flash-based storage device uses the new flash driver model that is introduced in Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2.
Note This problem is a problem in the CETK storage device tests. This problem is not a problem in the new flash driver model.
