iriver settings disappearing and usb startup problems
Two issues, possibly related due to their close proximity in time. First up,
I'm using an iriver h340.
For a few weeks now, the settings in the unit have been disappearing at
least every day (_not_ every power-off, but I haven't been sufficiently
scientific in my observations to determine a pattern). Everything still
worked fine, but my all settings were back to the defaults usually the first
power-on of the day. I was going to upgrade rockbox at some point, but then
the second problem happened:
The unit started thinking it was connected to a usb connection all the time.
This is the same problem described here:
happened both in rockbox and the original firmware. I fixed it in the
The third thing to consider is that my battery has been slowly dying for a
month or two.
I'm starting to think these might be related. Many people with the usb
problem have reported shorter battery lives afterward; maybe it's the other
way round - the battery starts dying then causes some hiccup in the power
management unit. As for the settings - I'm guessing are stored in flash
rather than on disk? Could a dying battery be causing this?
