Subject: Re: Cannot see Directory after dragging mp3 files -- Archos JBS20
From: Lee Ramos (lrramos_at_optonline.net)
Date: 2003-01-04


I fixed the problem...in order to BOOT (the key word). The hard drive must
be formatted as a PRIMARY partition. I looked under Windows 2000 Disk
Management and noted it was EXTENDED.

I formatted it PRIMARY and copied archos.mod... and presto, ROCKBOX appeared
on the player's screen. The music sounds GREAT!
