New to Rockbox.. Recent owner of a Sansa Clip Zip with 1.01.21 firmware on a Windows 8.1 PC.

Whenever I start the Rockbox Utility, upon being presented with the Configuration screen, when I press "Autodetect" I get the 'ol "Rockbox Utility has stopped working... Windows is searching for a solution to this problem" popup.
I believe this may be related to the fact that Windows 8 doesn't give the Clip Zip a drive letter; it appears as simply "Sansa Clip Zip 4GB" in My Computer. However I can access it and copy/paste to/from all folders therein.

Do I need to strongarm Windows into assigning a drive letter to the Clip Zip?

FS#12988: Lua division by zero 2014-07-06T21:39:27Z 2014-07-06T21:39:27Z
I'm using Rockbox version f8785c8-140615 under emCORE for the iPod Classic, but this issue may apply to other versions and platforms as well.

When the Lua interpreter plugin returns a division by zero exception (if it even does that), it crashes the whole system instead of exiting with a plugin error.

FS#12987: Shuffle does not work properly any more (H300) 2014-07-21T07:00:55Z 2014-07-06T18:43:49Z
Been using Rockbox for years, so it was really obvious when things got messed up somewhere in 3.12~3.13. In a nutshell, with this release, in a 1000+ playlist, I'm listening to the same songs over and over again when shuffle is on. To fix the issue, I have to turn shuffle OFF and then flip it back to ON every time I start a player. Never had this problem before. Don't know if this affects all devices or just my H340 (yes! still going strong!).
FS#12986: Metronome issues on Ipod 6G 2014-07-02T19:59:28Z 2014-07-02T19:59:28Z
Metronome plugin is not functional on Ipod 6G.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open metronome;
2) Hold the "Select" button.

-- The metronome starts to tick in the headphones.

-- The text on the screen changes from "start: hold select" to "stop : cancel", but no sound is made.
-- A short click on the Select button emits a single tick sound, but the tapped frequency cannot be captured as the Ipod 6G does not have any "Record" button.

As single taps can be made, the metronome.c / play_tock() seems to work
and at least some sort of sound can be produced on this hardware,
maybe something is wrong with the timer_callback() ?
FS#12985: My sansa clip zip back button doesn't work anymore 2014-06-22T03:00:24Z 2014-06-22T00:04:38Z

Sorry if I selected the wrong category. my sansa clip zip's back button wont respond at all, weird thing is that the select button has working as a back button when the song in playing (on the playlists menu it works like a "select button").

Is this hardware or software? is there a workaround this?
FS#12984: Manual should mention it can only install on WinPods 2014-06-18T16:29:14Z 2014-06-18T13:39:06Z
There's no mention in the manual that RButil can only install RockBox on "WinPods," not on "MacPods."

FS#12983: "Strange" volume names not recognized 2014-06-18T16:32:34Z 2014-06-18T13:34:49Z
RockBox fails to list mounted volumes under Mac OS X that have "strange" names.

My iPod was named "Ralf G. R. Bergs's iPod", and the volume "/Volumes/Ralf G. R. Bergs's iPod" would not be displayed in RButil.

After I changed the iPod's name to "iPod" RButil recognized the volume.

FS#12982: partition table unsupported (and bugfully ignored) on sansa clip+ microsd card 2014-06-03T05:46:29Z 2014-06-03T05:46:29Z
if i format the clip+'s microsd card to contain a DOS partition table, then the vfat formatted partition is not recognized.

if i format the sd card with a vfat fs starting at the first block, then the fs is recognized by rockbox.

** if i then reformat the sd card with a partition table like above, then the second fs i created is still recognized by rockbox, even though the first 512 bytes or so have been clobbered. the result is that rb and my laptop see different fs structures, and clobber each other's metadata, causing corrupt file systems.

the work-around is to dd if=/dev/zero the beginning of the sd card and format without partitions.

i kindly request that rb support dos, or some other, partition table, and maybe that rb doesn't mount fs'es which appear to be clobbered by a partition table. one problem with this change is that some people may be using a clobbered fs without knowing. with such a patch, they could end up seeing a corrupt fs instead.

i don't consider this very high priority. thanks for the awesome firmware! :-)

FS#12981: JPEGs and album art with black backdrops don't display correctly. 2014-05-28T19:42:05Z 2014-05-28T19:42:05Z
The JPEG viewer fails to properly decode album art with a black backdrop. Images that have a lot of black become corrupt and garbled when displayed either as an image on disk or as album art.

I have tried the following to solve the problem:
* I have verified the image looks proper in multiple graphics programs.
* I have save the image with multiple graphics programs to rule-out bugs in the saving process of a particular graphics program.
* I have deleted and recopied the file with a different name to rule-out a bad secot on my flash drive.
* I have made a negative of the image (mostly white), and the negative displays properly.
* I have had another Sansa Clip Zip user verify this problem.

The following file will look corrupt when viewed on a Sansa Clip Zip:

However, a reverse with a white backdrop with be viewed properly:

FS#12980: [Clip+] WPS looks different after installing latest dev build 2014-05-25T14:51:24Z 2014-05-25T14:51:24Z
Hi, thanks a lot for all of your coding efforts, support, etc. I noticed that the WPS layout changed slightly after installing the latest dev build.


Problem: An unexpected indent appears in the WPS after installing the latest dev build on a Sansa Clip+. Please see attachment for an example.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 3.13 with Blind theme
2. Play some tracks to see WPS
3. Upgrade to latest dev build
4. Play some tracks to see WPS
5. Problem occurs here: there's an extra indentation after the "{current track number} / {number of tracks in playlist}" text, at the bottom-left of the screen.

Player: Sansa Clip+
