Re: ok thanks for the help got it talking but

is that in the main windows folder? I can't seem to find it in the j folder.
I went ahead and cut all the mp3 files out and repasted them back in but to no avail.
I am also wondering when you guys say about itunes you mean when you buy music thru itunes right?
cause I have not bought any files from itunes these are all my own miscellaneous MP3 files that I have had before itunes was ever on my computer.
thanks

  The folder Glenn is talking about is located at x:\iPod_Control Where x is your ipod drive.
  iPod_Control has the music database from iTunes and the stored music like this iPod_Control\Music\xxxx\xxxx.mp3 (I thought it was)
  Also iPod_Control is a hidden map, maybe you want to change the settings in windows to show hidden folders.

  If you don't want to use OF anymore, I can advice you to delete the whole iPod_Control as it's not used by rockbox (This means all music stored by iTunes is lost)

  Regards,
  William

    * Rockbox will not read the files that the iTunes put there, so if you will
    not be using the iPod's firmware, you may wish to copy out those files, or
    delete them.
    You can do this in Windows explorer by finding them in the iPod's native
    folders. I forget the folder name, but you can check the properties of the
    folders to find the one that has the files, as it will be the large folder.
    Then you will need to copy & paste the files into your own folders on the
    iPod.
    You may sort the files any way you wish.
    I have folders called:
    50s
    60s
    70s
    80s
    90s+
    and so on.

    * I think you also need to brows to "manage settings" and reset the
    settings.
    HTH.
