Hi.
        I don't think I have any answers for you, but do have more
questions. My apologies if these are too obvious. First, you said I
reformatted
the disk on a windows machine in the "FAT" language,

        Did you reformat in fat 16 or fat 32? If you select the disk in
the "My Computer" application in windows, then hit alt+enter, this will
bring up the disk's properties, and they should tell you whether you're
using the 32-bit system. If not, this may be why the Mac isn't mounting
the drive, that is, does the Mac read external FAT disks?
        This theory is negated by the fact that the Mac did mount the
disk once, but it would be good to check that you're using 32 and not
16. I don't know whether the disk
        Good luck.

Subject: Needing some answers and a comment-

Introducing myself as a Rockbox lover and having and issue or two and
can' t locate answers on the web site and don't really want to make
anyone
spent time creating an easy to find database on the web with info when
all
this awesome features are being created and put in to action, keep it up

you rockbox techno's its awesome stuff.

Here's where I'm at. I took my JBR20 since it was having problems
getting
stuck when starting up the disk with the Archos software. I reformatted

the disk on a windows machine in the "FAT" language, took it to my mac
and
loaded up the RockBox 2.0 software, took it back to windows machine and
reinstalled all my .mp3, erased all the nuisanse .fb and .db files that
the mac has origianlly added as i loaded the JBR20., everything working
really fabulous.

I noticed that when I unzipped the .ajz file (what ever its extension
was)
  into the root of the JBRor, it didn't create a .rockbox folder. Now I

formatted on the windows machine and uploaded my music that I had on the

windows machine. I used my mac to put in the rockbox software file and
my
mac did read the JBR20 that fist time, then I put my music back on with
the windows machine cause I could see the blimy misc,. files the mac
created. I use my Mac OSX for most of my work and now I can't get the
bloody JBR20 to mount on my Mac machine. I don't always have access to
my
dad's laptop and want to be able to use my mac.

So the first thing I need is to figure out why I can't mount on my mac
anymore?
Is there some issue again with the windows machines and the mac machines

adding files maybe?

In regards to making a playlist at the top of a folder, I have usually
just put a space in front of a filname and that brings it to the top.

I would also like to see some more work done in the future for making
playlists. The only thing that did work on the archos software seemed
to
be the playlist maker. I'd love to figure out how to make a playlist
manually but I'm affraid I'm not technically knowledged enough to do
this
unless someone where to walk me through it step by step.

New to all of this and eager to learn. GRIFFIN
