Subject: AW: Another ATA ERROR: -32 problem
From: Stefan Meurer (dl3esm_at_gmx.net)
yes, F1 starts the original ARCHOS-FW, but with an "HD-Error" message - so
there is no startup possible at all.
The problem occured with the other jbr20 was a couple of months before 2.2
was available so I think this is not due to your fix (CVS from end of Dec
So can you explain me how I can get this box back to life with the RS232
converter? What are the steps to be done to flash archos or rockbox firmware
(what sw needed)??
Thanks for your help,

Yes it is, but I doubt you'll need that while your box is alife. Have you
tried On while F1 pressed? Do you know about the Archos software being
available there? This should make your box start, and load a .ajz if

Unlikely the bootloader, but possible with a startup change in Rockbox I
made just after 2.2. It starts quicker with that fix, but there was a rumour
that it didn't work for one user, giving him/her ATA startup errors.
However, I haven't personally heared about such yet.
You could try to flash 2.2 versus a daily build and compare.
Thanks for patience and reporting,
