Subject: RE: Rolo
From: Carlo D'Angelo (cdangelo_at_yahoo.com)
Date: 2003-01-10


Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I have the
latest Archos firmware for recorders installed. But
it still doesn't seem to work correctly. I reviewed Q
33 in the FAQs which says: "To make use of Rolo, you
must have a file with the same extension as your
Rockbox firmware (.ajz on Recorder, .mod on Player)
but a different name". How do I get this file with
the same extension? I tried creating it but that's not
correct. I tried renaming the Archos file (ajbrec.ajz)
to a .ajz file with a different name, but it always
reboots me back into rockbox. I'm sorry but I'm not
trying to be a pest, but I think I'm missing
something.

Thanks.
