hi there, heres the question in this modern world of mp3 players why does
rockbox only work on players that have been either deleated or out of date.
i want to store my whole colection of music, but at the momnet rockbox does
not suport a player that will do this, how long is it taking to create
rockbox that will work on new players such as the ipod 5g 80g, the new
arcagos machines i would like a firm date on what and when rock boxs will
work on these players if anyone out there has any ideas on what player i
shouldget that works with rockbox that has a large harddrive then let me
know

alex gibbons a
