00:17:58dj-funo it doesn't.
00:18:00FebsThe Rockbox Manual certainly doesn't say that.

00:19:43FebsOK, *using* iTunes is different from telling iTunes not to screw with your ability to access the ipod as a disk.

00:20:00dj-fuipod have a disk mode
00:20:24user01dj-fu: so what would i do if that is the problem?
00:21:24dj-fuyou should only ever transfer music to rockbox as "as a flash disk"
00:21:32dj-futhat's how it's done.

00:51:24linuxstbNo, but the firmware isn't written to the FAT32 partition - it's written before that on the disk. So it sounds like you have more serious problems.

01:10:32esotericso i have a question, im using rockbox on my 5g ipod and i want to do filetree music listing instead of gay itunes tag database. do I need to delete all the music already on my ipod and just copy the music by hand to the ipod?
01:11:14esotericthought as much
01:11:31esotericthis is such as sweet program, going to save me hours and hours of tag editing
01:11:35Mikachuyou could in theory use the tag info to rename them with some program, but it would probably take longer
01:12:13esotericmy files are already named right
01:12:14esotericand organized
01:12:18esotericso this is perfect
01:13:05esotericso everything under ipod_control/music delete and just copy like normal?
01:13:50linuxstbIf you don't want to use the apple firmware, just delete the entire ipod_control folder.
01:14:12user01weird the program is working to format the ipod on the other computer
01:14:27esotericif something goes awry, could i also just copy it back linux?

01:38:44linuxstbIt's best to install ipodlinux first, as it requires repartitioning.
01:39:00linuxstbFor Rockbox, you just download a zip file and unzip it to your ipod's FAT partition.
01:39:09user01an older french version of windows :D
01:39:41user01i just basically hit a bunch of buttons and it worked...

01:42:10spiorfwith ipodloader 1 i mean
01:42:11user01firewire is working again on other computer! only one thing left...try to install rockbox again!
01:42:31linuxstbspiorf: No - you need to replace loader1 with either loader2 or the Rockbox bootloader.
01:43:54spiorfthere is on the wiki instructions to configure ipodloader2 to boot rockbox?
01:44:07sharpethere is in the ipodlinux wiki
01:45:57linuxstbspiorf: There's no configuration needed - just download the for your ipod from the daily builds page and unzip it to your ipod.

02:05:43esoteric5g 60gb that is
02:06:01dj-fuuser01: hold 'menu' while it's booting
02:06:13user01dj-fu: thanks!
02:06:15dj-furockbox will say "loading original firmware" and then load iPod
02:06:30dj-fuHold it down as soon as you reboot, it's kinda picky about timing ;]
02:07:02user01dj-fu: my guess to what when wrong is that the apple cd didnt go through the procedure of formatting the disk first, and just named it a windows partition when it was actually still an apple one
02:07:49user01grrrrrrr i can listen to ogg and flac files finally this is soooo cool
02:08:28linuxstbuser01: To answer your question - no.
02:09:11user01linuxstb: no... to what?
02:09:29dj-fuyou can't listen to your DRM music.
02:09:46linuxstbuser01: To make Rockbox boot the Apple firmware when you hold MENU+SELECT
02:09:57dj-fuis it menu+select?
02:10:00dj-fuI thought it was just menu
02:10:03*dj-fu hides
02:10:41ZweiundvierzigMenu+Select to reboot, then Menu to boot the Apple firmware
02:10:43Zweiundvierzig< Gone
02:10:50linuxstbI thought user01 was asking for Rockbox to default to loading the Apple firmware, rather than defaulting to Rockbox.
02:11:05linuxstbBut maybe I misunderstood...
02:11:09dj-fuMaybe I did ;
02:11:14dj-fuuser01: ask questions properly!
02:11:15user01linuxstb: oh thats a good qusetion too but i was asking the other one first
02:11:54user01linuxstb: i wanted to know both and i got an answer to both and i did it with one question instead of i used a good compression format for the questions
02:12:00linuxstbBut yes, holding MENU immediately after resetting should start the Apple firmware if you time it correctly - the key detection is very picky.
02:12:08dj-futold ya ;
02:12:20*linuxstb should go to sleep
02:12:24*dj-fu nods
02:12:34dj-fuapple firmware sucks
02:12:52linuxstbIt was a good motivation to get Rockbox ported.

02:17:17dj-fuusb 2.0 is faster
02:18:24dj-fuFireWire 400 can transfer data between devices at 100, 200, or 400 Mbit/s data rates (actually 98.304, 196.608, or 393.216 Mbit/s, but commonly referred to as S100, S200, and S400)
02:18:32dj-fuas opposed to 480Mbit/s w/ usb2.0
02:18:52dj-fuI doubt the hdd based ipods could get anywhere near that, though
02:20:55dj-futhat is unless the firewire is using p1394c or something, with the encoding scheme
02:21:00dj-fuanyway, </monologue> afk.
02:22:14user01is there a way to put a boot password on rockbox? that would be cool
02:24:20sharpeuser01: there has been a previous request for a similar feature
02:25:48esotericis there a way to click a song and add it to any existing playlist?
02:26:25sharpemany, actually...
02:27:24esotericwith default configs or do i need to snoop around for some?
02:27:44user01now to updgrade i just write over the cvs files in the zip ?
02:27:46sharpeoh, i meant to the password-type suggestion
02:28:09sharpeesoteric: hold select on the song and you should get a menu.
02:28:39user01sharpe: would a password solution really work though if all ud need to do would eb to plug it into a usb port?
02:28:57sharpeuser01: nope, wouldn't really be much of use at all.
02:29:43user01unless it could be reformatted with disk encryption
02:31:08sharpeactually, probably better off having another partition that is encrypted; as rockbox works only on a FAT partition.

05:49:36***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
05:49:58Paul_The_NerdRockbox uses M3U playlists. Many programs support generating them
05:51:25Paul_The_NerdIn fact, probably most popular audio players, including Winamp and Foobar2000
05:52:47esotericand WMP i believe
05:53:33scorcheWMP uses their own playlists: wpl
05:54:29esotericill have to install winamp then
05:55:27Paul_The_NerdJust remember to point it at the files on your player, and not the copies on your HD. ;)
05:55:46sharpewould be quite fun if it still worked.
05:56:59Paul_The_NerdIt does if the directory structure is identical
05:57:34esoterichow do you guys make them?
05:57:55sharpePaul_The_Nerd: yeh.
05:58:13sharpeesoteric: you mean, playlists?
05:59:33sharpei don't usually answer personal questions... but... well... i usually listen to albums at once; from one artist.
05:59:58Paul_The_NerdI use Rockbox to make my playlists
06:00:41Paul_The_NerdMost of the time I listen to just albums, but sometimes I'll stick two or three ablums in a playlist and save it for future use
06:00:47scorchei use rockbox most of the time as well
06:01:06esotericso you guys dont usually pick out like 50 random songs like i do ;)
06:01:29scorcheesoteric: i do sometimes....dynamic playlists are great
06:02:02Paul_The_NerdBut picking out 50 random songs is something you'd want to do on the player anyway
06:05:06esoterictrue true
06:06:17scorcheand if i want 50 random songs (that i dont want to pick out), i just play my playlist with every song on there and set it to shuffle
06:06:48Paul_The_NerdThat's what I do too.

13:56:59Lynx_i have a little problem with my h300: the battery is empty, and as i forgot the charger again i would like to charge via usb. when i start the box by pluggin in usb, the rb bootloader comes, shows a battery warning, and then the iriver firmware starts, but reboots before the menu comes.
13:58:10Mmmmmarkun: do you think the entries in the debug menu really need fixing as it's not really part of the final release?

20:04:17egotrippeni think the word is video ipod, H300, or H100
20:04:49egotrippenH100 for recording and sound quality, 5g ipod for video and tv-out under apple firmware
20:04:55mattlwell, my iPod was a 60gb Photo. I'd like something similar.
20:05:16mattlegotrippen: would that require me to use the proprietary apple firmware though?
20:05:17midkayyou might like the 5G ipod.. you'd be familiar with the controls, it's physically smaller and has a larger LCD, though.
20:05:35egotrippenrockbox is out for the 5g
20:05:45 Join mikearthur [0] (
20:05:51egotrippenfor video functions you'd have to boot the apple fw, but that's relatively quick
20:05:57midkayyes, the apple firmware is the only thing that really lets you play videos on it at the moment.. but it's very nice for what it does.. H.264 and mpeg-4 video.
20:06:05egotrippenon my H300, iriver firmware booting takes a good 25 seconds
20:06:09mattlnot really that interested in video, tbh.
20:06:17mattlwhat license is Rockbox under?
20:06:30*mattl can't find it on the website
20:06:42mattlmidkay: w00t.
20:07:13egotrippenbesides the video, the apple 5g has good HD space for the price
20:07:20midkayso it really depends on what's necessary and what you'd like to have.
20:07:29egotrippenfeature wise, the H300 is a little batter and the H100 is a lot better

20:07:52mattlwould i run an Apple 5g without running the apple firmware? i think i'll be able to get that on my insurance from the iPod Photo.
20:07:54midkayirivers can record, i also think they both have FM radio..
20:08:12egotrippenright, FM radio
20:08:13mattli don't want to run any proprietary firmware, if i can avoid it.
20:08:28egotrippenunder rockbox they can record from FM, and they have built in microphones
20:08:37midkaymattl, if you don't need video, sure.. audio playback's pretty stable by now, everything's working rather well.. except voice, but that's probably not necessary for you..
20:09:13egotrippenfor iriver H300, you'd only need stock firmware to watch video or record to MP3
20:09:18midkaymattl, beware battery life - maybe only around 8 hours with rockbox. some optimization needs to be done.. that's plenty for many people, don't know if it is for you.
20:09:29egotrippenfor apple 5g, you'd only need stock firmware to watch video or use TV out
20:09:48mattlmidkay: 8 hours will be plenty. i guess Ogg Vorbis would lower that a little further.
20:10:00midkaymattl, not that much, actually. :)
20:10:16midkayah, one test says 10h ogg..
20:10:29midkayoh. it uses the 64mb buffer mod. yeah.
20:10:38midkaythat's if you get the 60GB version.
20:11:08midkay30GB versions only have 32MB RAM, and rockbox will take advantage of that out-of-the, er.. zip. :)
20:11:41egotrippenif you're not interested in video, recording, or FM radio, the H300 and the 5g ipod are very very similar
20:12:20midkayhe said he can probably get a 5G for an exchange, so..

22:17:17Paul_The_NerdFebs: It's too late. You did it
22:17:29FebsYeah, I just saw that.
22:17:57Paul_The_NerdYours was the most likely but I'm always surprised how many people dump all their songs in one folder.
22:18:04FebsThat's OK, I cheated anyway by testing to see if a restart is needed after changing max playlist size. (it is).
22:18:57FebsIt would not have surprised me one bit if he did have 13,000 songs in a single folder.
22:19:27Paul_The_NerdWell, I knew the restarts were necessary, but I figured since you'd covered that angle, I'd throw in some alternatives if yours didn't work.

22:23:37Paul_The_Nerdpreglow: It wasn't the case with this person. But I've seen people report having all their songs in one folder before, and complain about the 10,000 limit.
22:23:47*preglow vomits
22:25:39FebsThose are usually the people that can't find the folder on their player named "Root."

22:27:35FebsThat sad part about that thread, petur, was that you bolded the word "root" and he still didn't get it.
