Hi Brandon and list,

Further to my earlier email, a sighted friend says when we try and turn the
player on, she can see rockbox bootloader version 2 before the screen goes
blank and the hard drive dies. Don't know if this is any more of an
indication as to what the problem could be?

Any help greatfully received
