Mine is white, probably that's why it doesn't work :-D :-D

Last time I looked, this was the situation: (my question is if this
has changed since then)

Faulty playback on Ipod Nano 4Gb 1st Gen (Read 6061 times)

People with a 4gb nano, which RB did not work anymore for, probably
will have unsuscribed from the list after reading this:

r13990 is the last that worked for me. Anyway, I'll give current build
a new try.
