Please do.

OK. Subdirectories aren't that important for simple file transfers. Is
cbmconvert a filesystem or a program?

It's the post that eventually ended up in the FAQ. I followed the
instructions, and 12V works OK, but I'm having problems with 5V. The
5V section reads:

5. Locate L5. It will probably be in one of two locations. On the
   older version, desolder the right hand leg and lift. On the newer
   version, desolder the top leg and lift.

6. Connect +5V to the empty L5 hole.

Measuring at the hole where I connected I get a healthy +5V, but if I
measure at pin 2 on the user port I get less than +1V. Any ideas of
what might be wrong? Should L5 be connected again? What does it do?
