Subject: Help with iPod classic 6 gen

Help with iPod classic 6 gen

Hello all:

Well, I've tried everything I could think of. I'm going to have to ask for help.

I've been using an iPod classic 6g for about 6 months now. I have no problems. The unusable port has been usable for me. The
only thing I can think is the low battery life that might be a small problem; but, that was known before I originally installed
rockbox. Thank you all for the port.

A few days ago, I decided to upgrade my version of rockbox to see if anything has changed. I got git running and did the get
clone. All that worked as expected. I did the build and built the voice file as I've done many times in the past. (no problems).

I then installed rockbox and the voice file. When I rebooted the player, I was informed I needed to up the mcore firmware. I
downloaded the .ubi file and followed the instructions. I Got help with the on-player stuff. All that went fine as well.

When I booted the player on the new firmware, I found my disk was reformatted. I ran fdisk, make a new disk partition and then
formatted the drive with a fat32 filesystem. I then reinstalled rockbox and the voice file.

When I rebooted this time, the rockbox exec couldn't be found. I then read some more on the WIKI and google. I found I should
have used mformat instead of mkfs.vfat. So, I used mformat with -S5 because the sector size is 4096. I mounted the new device
/dev/sdb1 and installed rockbox and the voice file once again.

Now, when I reboot, rockbox says there is no partition. plug in the usb cable and fix. When I do, here is what I see with a dmesg
command:

iint_free: readcount: 1
iint_free: opencount: 1
FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sdb1.
FAT: logical sector size too small for device (logical sector size = 512)

I do hear the drive operating; so, I'm hopeful I haven't done anything perminate.
I would appreciate any help you all can provide.
Is there a version of rockbox installed as part of mcore?

Terry
