Yeah, but it was working after the flash for about an hour just fine. I
could use all options, but I did notice that the USB-2 transfers were slower
than they should be. In retrospect, I think this is a bad HD, unrelated to
the Flashing.

I agree, but I don't appreciate trying to find out what this error code
means, and Mr. High & Mighty Thomas Paul Diffenbach uses my misfortune to
trash the FM or V2 model that I was clearly not using.

So you consider the 20GB Recorder to be a "shitty little piece of hardware
which is known to fail very often" ??? I wish everyone would have made
this clear about the 50277 model before I bought two of them. I am now
using the second one that I did not, and will not flash and it seems to be
working well.

In addition, thank God I bought these from Amazon, because getting no help
here, I complained by phone to Amazon that the unit was defective on
arrival. They cheerfully are shipping me a replacement at no charge 2 Day
Airmail, and a pre-paid postage label for me to return this one. So, I hope
this is a lesson to everyone NOT TO FLASH THEIR FIRMWARE, or expect the
Rockbox email list to help solve your hardware failure problems.

I had sent the Rockbox Website PayPal $30 in appreciation of their software
too. Oh well. Live and learn.
