OK, thanks to the advice of Antony to check out the "BigDisk" doc, I
tried defining HAVE_LBA48, for the extended disk addressing. This
seems to have done the trick. Thanks!!

So, here is what I've had to do to get things working with the Toshiba
MK2431GAH 240gb drive:

1. Make the following changes in
"/usr/src/rockbox/firmware/export/config-ipodvideo.h"

/* define this if the hard drive uses large physical sectors (ATA-7 feature) */
/* and doesn't handle them in the drive firmware */
/* MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE 1024 */
#define MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE 4096
#define HAVE_LBA48

2. Recompile both the bootloader and the normal install.

3. Install the newly created rockbox.zip files on to the ipod

4. Install the newly created bootloader using some varient of:
ipodpatcher.exe -a bootloader-ipodvideo.ipod

5. Voila! Your done.

Thanks again to all,
Steve Martin
