RE: strange "bug" with H340

From: Rob Powell <rob_at_rinty.plus.com>
Date: 2006-03-15

Hi Dave, first, I don't think my unit's faulty, though I've not dismissed
that possibility, as in all the operations like loading files onto the unit
etc, it works fine. Second, I'm using the daily build of RB from Monday.
Third, I think the firmware is 1.28. Would it make a difference if I
installed the japan or euro version of the firmware? I don't know what
version of the patcher it is, except that I downloaded it the other day
straight off the site.

Rob

Just an idea here, but - how well does your new H340 perform with the
stock firmware? Could it be you have a faulty unit (irrespective of the
software running on it)? Alternatively, if the iriver firmware behaves
just fine, and only rockbox seems to exhibit faults, have you tried running
Scandisk on the disk (when connected to a PC)? Rockbox stores its settings
on the hard drive whereas the iriver firmware stores its settings in
prom - if the disk is faulty then that might explain why rockbox fails to
store its settings correctly

Also - just for reference - which version of rockbox (and which version of
the rockbox bootloader) are you using?
