Re: Tts in rockbox

hi from Rob, I have plantronics for windows dsp 500 series headphones
installed, skype installed, and am working out firewall issues. I have been
doing some further thinking. In the rockbox nano video 60gb manual it says
that I am to download and unzip directly to my e drive which is the ipod
drive. when I do so, there are more than just the rockbox files, there are
system files unzipped as well. Not when I unzip to top directory c drive. I
wonder as I look through the info in the nano install instructions if I am
to use the nano bin or the video bin. Also, when I am to do a command
prompt, I think I should be addressing the e drive instead of c. Because the
nano gb60 has no flash memory there must be a different procedure involved.
In the beginning of the manual that I downloaded for the rockbox it says
something about adding rockbox bootloader commands to the original firmware.
It says something about looking for the players homepage. Am I on track?
please advise. thank you. Rob
