I have to have Rockbox because I'm blind. I just don't want to spend the money,
and it not work. I saw on the instructions that the Ipod has to be fat 32 and for
Windows, as well as in disk mode. How do you know that your buying an ipod for
Windows? How do you get it in disk mode? Have blind people been able to install
Rockbox independently? It looks complicated.
