Subject: Re: Iriver - Strange Behaviour

Re: Iriver - Strange Behaviour

Hi Stuart,

My girlfriend purchased an Iriver H120 which turned out to have a bad
hard drive. It exhibited many of these same symptomss with Rockbox,
and we eventually had to send the unit back. I would suggest running
Scandisk on the unit, and if absolutely necessary, reformat the drive
using Swisknife.
Good luck,
Steve
