Re: Help! I downgraded to 3.2 and now when I try and mount the Sansa C240, it cycles....
One more note: In the 17 MB file system that I can mount, I see two
files with strange names, suggesting corruption: The characters making
up the first of these names are not standard ascii, the second one has a
delta symbol followed by a < symbol and the and E with a tic mark over
it and MSDOS.5.0. It is 32 bytes long. The first one is 942.7 MB
which seems wrong for a partition that is only 17 MB.
