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?

The heavy work is done, but not finished yet. (button labels are missing)
I'm just uploading it before it gets lost.
Maybe someone can finish it, or I will do it if I have time.

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#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#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#12978: Prefetch or Data abort when setting a theme or playing a song 2014-05-18T23:28:44Z 2014-05-17T15:23:54Z
While attempting to play a song or set a theme downloaded with the Rockbox Utility on my iPod Classic 6G with dev build Dev build #cb205c8, the player will throw this error.
I'm attaching a photo containing all the useful information to debug it.
This behaviour cannot be reproduced with the build released with EmCORE r859 (Rockbox r31516).

FS#12973: %Vs(invert) partially fails with centered or right-aligned content 2014-04-18T11:31:19Z 2014-04-17T15:30:21Z
1) %Vs(invert) correctly sets the background color from the start of the text to the end of the viewport (right of the text). However, it doesn't set the background to the left of the text, e.g. when the text is centered or aligned to the right. See attached screenshot.

2) %Vs(invert) doesn't work when it's on its own line.

This partially works:


This doesn't work:


Tested with Build 35b4ba8.

FS#12962: FM Radio Tuner for US - minor problem 2014-04-16T09:52:26Z 2014-03-18T22:31:56Z
In the FM radio, the US tuner needs a spot for 87.75 mHz. It stops at 87.9, but there are actually some radio stations that use the frequency 87.75, they're actually TV stations on channel 6 who's audio broadcasts on 87.75. Known examples are KFLZ in San Antonio TX, WLFM in Cleveland OH, KXKW in Lafayette, LA, and WGWG in Chicago IL.
The Korea region setting has been helpful in getting around this but only to a certain extent, as it tunes to 87.70 and not 87.75. The only way I know of to listen to one of these stations without audio problems is to switch to Italy or Other, where I can fine-tune 87.75 FM.
FS#12972: The Compresser needs more flexability 2014-04-14T03:39:56Z 2014-04-14T00:14:37Z
This is more of a feature request.
The compresser built into Rockbox needs a little more flexibility. I'd like to normalize the sound. By this, I mean raise up the quiet parts of music without it sounding too distorted and compressed. Can you guys allow the release time to be set longer than 1000 Ms? With the ratio all the way up and the threshold at a reasonable level, I believe I can normalize it with a longer release time (3000 or 5000). The current longest time just makes it sound way overcompressed if I'm not careful.
