Re: Tts in rockbox/iPod installation

Hi Scot, I have the files unzipped and placed in c and in e drive which is
the drive letter for the ipod. I am not able to get my computer to recognize
the ipod. When I go in to command prompt and type ipatcher0 ipatcher1 etc.
increasing the numbers it doesn't bring it up. Do you suppose its because
the 60g has no firmware as in flash memory. The video manual says something
about going to the players homepage to patch in the rockbox bootloader.
Something about bringing up the immage file. I wonder what I am doing wrong.
Thanks for the reply. Rob
