#rockbox log for 2007-12-30

00:00:06amiconnYes, why not? Trade compression for seek accuracy or somesuch
00:00:33amiconnThe seek should of course snap to the nearest start-of-gop
00:00:47jhMikeSfor DVD it's 15 for PAL and 18 for NTSC and all the players can wind to a particular frame in that case quite quickly
00:00:50Lloreanamiconn: Seeking is plenty fast as it is right now, at least on Gigabeat. ;)
00:00:56conandohow does mplayer do it?
00:00:57 Join dsa [0] (
00:01:02LloreanI can seek nearly instantly with GOP length of 300. :-P
00:01:31dsadoes rockbox work with any version of ipod firmware
00:01:44dsafor example theres an update available for the 5.5g winpod
00:01:45Lloreandsa: As long as it works with that hardware version, yes
00:01:46conandoseeking with mplayer is always almost instantly... but i guess they don't care about uncorrupted decoding after seeking as the first few frames after a seek are a bit messed up most of the time ;)
00:01:53dsaioh ok
00:02:08Lloreanconando: mplayer is also on processors on average 10+ times faster than ours.
00:02:31jhMikeSconando: when I looked they "sloppy seek" to about within 1/2 second but the algorthm I came up with can find an exact timestamp in about 5-15 iterations so why not be precise. :)

00:02:37 Join SirFunk [0] (
00:03:06conandoof course.. but this is also how it "feels" on slower processors.. mplayer is aroudn for quite some time and it's sort of known aroudn for this "instant seeking" behaviour or feeling or whatever ;)
00:03:19dsais it possible to use fdisk on windows?
00:03:34Lloreanconando: Have you tried the new seeking in Rockbox with a reasonable GOP value?
00:03:34jhMikeSI think they may fine tune the initial seek afterward. I know WMP will give up being exact if it has to search too far.
00:03:37amiconnconando: Try it on a ~100MHz machine...
00:03:38Lloreanconando: It was just added a few hours ago
00:03:54conandojhMikeS yeah i already thought they'd do a pretty sloppy seek ;) .. ah cool.. then bring it on hehe

00:06:01 Quit mhydronic ()
00:06:17LloreanIt's orders and orders of magnitude faster feeling than the previous start point selection
00:06:58conandoamiconn of course it won't be the same as on state of the art workstation hardware.. i never said that.. i meant just in comparison with other software on the same machine doing seeks mplayer will almost always outperform
00:07:14conandosounds great!
00:07:34amiconnLlorean: Is startup time also better now?
00:07:41Lloreanamiconn: MUCH
00:08:00Lloreanamiconn: I can resume a file at 1:53:22 almost instantly (spin up is the only real delay)
00:08:03amiconnOld mpegplayer had slow startup on coldfire, and was pathetic on PP...
00:08:12LloreanIt was pretty bad on Gigabeat too
00:08:23amiconnI mean even when playing from the beginning
00:08:23LloreanI'll be testing on an iPod Video in a few days for a Best / Worst comparison

00:11:42amiconnArchos is 112x64, monochrome. Showing greyscale with neat trickery.
00:11:47LloreanI managed to get through all of 300 on a 132x80 screen at 2.35 aspect ratio
00:12:01conandoi know.. before the sansa i still used my archos player :)
00:12:02jhMikeSat least a 320x240 screen + nice CPU power makes it ok to watch TV and movies
00:12:10LloreanThough I only half watched it. Looks to make sure it was going, etc, just curious about battery life.
00:12:20conandooh you could have topped that lotr "experience" .. you could have watched it as ascii art on the archos player ;o)
00:12:21LloreanSurprising results, after the whole film it still showed 77% charge.

00:14:36jhMikeSthis will also use less CPU since it actually sleeps the processor now when waiting to draw frames
00:15:44amiconnOh, it didn't do that before?
00:16:06 Quit davina (Remote closed the connection)
00:17:24jhMikeSamiconn: no, just spinning. now it waits for the whole duration and just spins the small remainder to be accurate. if waiting for audio insert, it sleeps the audio thread for one audio frame.
00:18:34BagderFYI, the Sansa View has a second partition made exactly like the e200v1
00:19:02linuxstbWas the View the one with the PP-derived chip(s)?

02:14:25Soap50% 15 months ago, 55% after COP and 64MB buffer, 66% after HDD poweroff, 78% after USB poweroff.
02:14:59LloreanSoap: Tried this patch?
02:15:30moosSoap: and compared to svn how much you win?
02:15:51moosthat was 12% for Bushel
02:16:19Soapthat's the one I used for this latest test, I did NOT have the hold switch on, thus no Clickwheel poweroff.
02:16:33LloreanThe second one or the first one?
02:16:42Soap78/66 = 18% gain
02:16:44Soapsecond one.
02:16:55LloreanI'm curious what we're supposed to gain from a higher base clock speed.
02:17:10LloreanDoesn't that mean more power is wasted when we don't need boosting?

02:19:11 Join JdGordon [0] (
02:19:36Soapwell, let's remove my previous rounding from my answer - 16h/13.75h = 16% gain.
02:20:08LloreanI don't like the idea of boosting the idea of boosting the CPU for specific codecs.
02:20:32SoapLlorean, do you care to rephrase that? I am confused.
02:20:39LloreanSorry, boosting the _base_ cpu
02:21:36TheBiggerGuymoos: Lookin at the pcb it looks like 1 side to the reset is on ground, do u think if i short it, it will be ok?
02:21:39saratoga3i also dislike the idea of boosting the base CPU
02:22:25saratoga3though i'd be very interested in seeing the difference in current draw between keeping the CPU at 45MHz and boosting from 30/80
02:22:31LloreanI could understand picking a baseline for what the "base" CPU should be, for example "Decoding MP3 @ CBR 128kbps" or something, but the baseline should either be chosen based on "what's good for the CPU", "what's good for the UI" or "what's good for the single most common codec" (imho)
02:22:49saratoga3or maybe letting each codec request what base CPU should be used
02:23:04saratoga3though honestly i think the difference is small
02:23:20Soapbuschel mentioned earlier that his earlier assumption was wrong, and that amiconn was right that power consumption had a linear correlation to clock speed, thus boosting shouldn't be costly - and lord knows it is simple.
02:23:41saratoga3yes thats what i expected since theres no change in voltage
02:23:50moosThe BiggerGuy: I never opened my X5 yet :), try what do you feel at your risk, maybe you could ask LinusN when he will back(maybe next week). He made the iaudio X5 port...
02:24:02LloreanSoap: My understanding is that boosting has a linear correlation to clock speed, *except* that it may be possible to run some processors at a lower voltage and gain some savings (iirc), but we don't do that.
02:24:08Lloreanlower voltage when slow
02:24:48Soapthat's a cool can of worms.
02:25:35Llorean*someone* told me that, I think it may even have been amiconn.
02:26:01LloreanI may have misunderstood or misrepresented what he said. Lord knows plenty of other things fly past me. :)

11:31:59GodEaterI've missed too much!
11:32:17JdGordonis having 2 viewport structs really needed? a seperate one for remote is nto going to play nice
11:32:31linuxstbI know - I've been thinking about that...
11:32:50linuxstbI'm going to do a remote driver next, so I can work out how to do it.
11:33:06 Quit amiconn (" HydraIRC -> <- In tests, 0x09 out of 0x0A l33t h4x0rz prefer it :)")
11:33:16linuxstbThe downside of course is unused items (fg/bg patterns) for mono remotes.
11:33:30JdGordonill pastebin my comment...
11:33:57JdGordon <- /me too lazy to retype it
11:34:47JdGordonI dont have a problem with unused items if it makes apps easier to handle
11:35:15linuxstbI think I agree - I've been torn between the two options.
11:36:22LloreanI'm gonna put my opinion alongside JdGordon's on this one.
11:37:07JdGordonits only the h300/x5 with that problem anyway
11:38:11JdGordonthe rest of my comment was "nice work" followed by a brain dump on implementing fun stuff in apps like having wps and menu int he same screen
11:38:31linuxstbDon't worry, I agree - I had pretty much decided to go that way anyway.
11:39:36GodEaterthat will be an interesting read. As I recall LinusN was against having a menu showing while the WPS was up since the player wouldn't know which context to send button presses to.
11:39:43pixelmathe M5 uses the sam iaudio remote so it can have two displays with the same colour depth... (if that's something to consider too, otherwise ignore ;) )
11:40:14JdGordonpixelma: yeah, but the m5 is not 16bit like the other two.. so it wont have the extra vars
11:40:31linuxstbGreyscale targets have fg/bg_pattern
11:40:42JdGordonoh? ah! hmm
11:40:52linuxstbAnd the iaudio remote is greyscale IIRC
11:40:59JdGordonGodEater: yeah, the button thing is a problem - hence my outburst before...
11:41:29linuxstbThe only mono remotes are for the h100/h300 and m:robe.
11:41:34LloreanGodEater, JdGordon: I think it's pretty simple. If the WPS is primary, don't show the menu at all. If the menu is visible, keypresses always go to it. But that's how I'd do it for myself
11:42:14JdGordonbut even with viewports, its not that simple to setup a screen with both the wps and the menu
11:42:24linuxstbMy thoughts (in my viewports design doc) were to have the status bar drawn by the wps code - so the status bar in effect becomes a mini wps which can be drawn in multiple viewports.
11:42:31LloreanI meant "simple" in the sense of "what takes precedence", not implementation. ;)
11:42:57linuxstbAnd the menu will be drawn in another user-defined viewport (or group of viewports).
11:43:37GodEateris the idea still to be able to turn viewports on/off at will ?
11:44:06JdGordonwhat I was thinking is building a window manager into apps which would keep track of which "screens" (including button bar and status bar) to display, a function for each one to call for it to draw in its viewport, and a action/logic function to call.. it would then pass the desired action on
11:44:21JdGordonbut that would need a bit of a rewrite to work properly
11:45:54LloreanThe phrase "window manager" is a little scary. ;)
11:45:55JdGordonwhat we could then do is add some tags to the wps to specify where to display the browser/menu from "inside" the wps, or globally, or whatever..
11:46:18JdGordonLlorean: ill use a better phrase if you can think of one
11:47:03*GodEater wonders why the patch changes chopper.c
11:48:53LloreanJdGordon: That's what I like. A WPS conditional for "Menu", basically
11:49:37 Join Thundercloud [0] (
11:49:54linuxstbGodEater: Well spotted - there was a bug in my code which showed up in chopper, so I was modifying it to debug it. I'll revert that file...
11:50:33JdGordonlinuxstb: so the screen api isnt changing except you set the viewport before and after finishing drawing?
11:51:17linuxstbJdGordon: I haven't thought about the screens api yet - I've just been implementing the core LCD functions and the WPS changes.

11:54:47GodEaterI don't mean turning them off, I mean being able to display / not display
11:55:10JdGordon... ?
11:55:16GodEaterI think JdGordon / Llorean already covered it more eloquently
11:55:23JdGordonmenu on wps thing?
11:55:54JdGordonI imagine that will come.. porbably not for a while though
11:56:05GodEaterindeed not.
11:56:15*GodEater wasn't expecting it in the initial implementation :)
11:56:23*linuxstb still likes his status-bar-as-wps idea - reusing the existing wps code to display the status bar, including any existing wps elements.
11:56:38stripwaxSo the idea with menu+wps is that you would be able to define a 'menu wps' containing that status info and a viewport for where the menu goes?
11:56:40JdGordonlinuxstb: and in the other screens?
11:56:40GodEateryep - I think that's good too
11:56:51stripwaxI like it too
11:57:09JdGordonstripwax: no, i was thinking a tag which would say where in the wps the menu would be shown when it is activated
11:57:36stripwaxOh - so that status bar in the main WPS and the status bar in the menu system would be one-and-the-same? (no possibility to change it?)
11:57:51JdGordonlinuxstb: nice work... im going to bed... would it be more helpful to start playing with the drawing of a screen? or converting one of the other lcd drivers?
11:58:24*stripwax thought it would be a different .wps definition for menu pages
11:58:43*JdGordon doesnt like that idea, but is pretty sure that will happen also
11:59:12JdGordonas for the statusbar, I agree it could be wps-ified using the existing parser.. but shouldnt be considered part of the wps
11:59:20GodEaterI thought we were still resisting custom menus
11:59:28GodEaterbecause of the associated support nightmare
11:59:41JdGordonyes, content and looks are not the same

12:01:03stripwaxJdGordon - actually that's exactly what I meant −− the statusbar is defined separately from the main wps
12:01:07linuxstbEach viewport defined in the .wps would have an attribute - wps only, status bar only or "both". When the wps_refresh function is called, it will only render the appropriate viewports. The menu viewport(s) will be defined separately, and rendered into those.
12:02:06JdGordonyeah, I dont relly like the idea of having the statusbar and wps linked, even from just the .wps POV
12:02:09stripwaxalthough if there's only one definition then it can't be changed per screen, of course

12:10:49JdGordon:) I dont know how much time ill have sunday to play, but monday and tuesday probably heaps
12:11:28linuxstbThat's fine - the apps/ code works fine as it is, so there's no rush to implement viewports there.
12:11:35JdGordonOH... one thing I wanted to ask... does all scrolling lines on the screen have to be goingin in the same direction?
12:12:18JdGordonor are they all the same in the test plugin because the scroll engin cant actually scroll right yet?
12:12:22stripwaxtwo lines could be bidirectionally scrolling at different rates?
12:12:26linuxstbNo, that's an attribute of the individual line.
12:12:41linuxstbThe speed is global IIUC though.

13:58:34*BigBambi is still wondering why you deleted them
13:58:34Retro`is there anyone who can?
13:58:44Retro`BigBambi, because i'm a moron
13:58:50BigBambiheh :)
13:59:08Retro`is there any way to restore those partitions?
13:59:18GodEateronly by recreating them
13:59:18DerPapstif you wait i guess some one with more knowledge about your problem may show up.
13:59:30GodEaterbut you'd have to make sure there exactly the same as they were before
13:59:34GodEateror the device will likely not work
13:59:34Retro`GodEater, please instruct me how to recreate them
13:59:38GodEaterI've no idea

13:59:53Retro`shame :/
13:59:54GodEaterso I've no idea what the sizes should be
13:59:58BigBambiYou would need to know exactly what they were like
14:00:02DerPapstcan you connect it to your PC stiff?

14:00:47Retro`the using the instructions on i am able to enter the recovery mode
14:00:57DerPapstyeah ok... i meant can ou access the flash with fdisk or so...
14:01:19Retro`fdisk? how to do that actually?
14:01:59DerPapstfdisk /dev/sdX where sdX is where your e260 is.
14:02:04GodEatergparted would work just as well
14:02:10Retro`oh that
14:02:13GodEaterif you're not familiar with fdisk

14:03:17Retro`this is where the bootloader resides and the firmware
14:03:47GodEaterthen copy a .mi4 file there as you're supposed to
14:03:51BigBambiSo the partition is there?
14:04:13Retro`when the /media/disk-1 is mounted
14:04:25Retro`but only one partition

14:04:46Retro`the 4 GB partition (where music should be) is not present
14:04:47BigBambiAh OK
14:05:12markunRetro`: which tool did you use to delete the partition?
14:05:20Retro`the e200tool just helps me to mount the 16 MB of the flash
14:05:22BigBambimarkun: gparted
14:05:31Retro`markun, i did that with gparted
14:05:52markunand can't you just create a partition again?
14:05:57Retro`i can't

14:06:11Retro`i am not able to

14:07:35rasherRetro`: I think you can put a file named "format.txt" on the 16mb partition, and it'll reformat your player with the correct partitions.
14:07:40rasheror format.sys, or something
14:07:45rasherSearch around for it..
14:08:12GodEaterformat.txt is the right name I believe

14:13:51Retro`i am googling 3 hours now and no luck

14:15:26soapdid you see your player die, Buschel? Or are you simply going off the Batery Bench?
14:16:06Buscheli did see it die right withe the last HDD-access

14:19:05Buschelyep, the folder i use needs hdd access each ~20 mins
14:19:47GodEaterRetro`: yes - you keep saying this. What happens when you copy the two files over as the page instructs you to ?
14:20:08Retro`i am now in the recovery mode and the /media/disk-1 just mounted
14:20:24Retro`now i will transfer those files in and disconnect the player
14:20:36GodEatermake sure you unmount it properly first
14:20:40Retro`then the bootloader would print out some error

16:47:03stripwaxAlthough - maybe it is . I have a prior battery_bench and that last 45% depleted in 1hr 10 mins. So that would put my runtime at about 14hrs. Still seems low : 14 hrs with hold vs soap's 16hrs without hold?

16:50:41stripwaxBtw - my two prior battery_benches (without Buschel's patch) were consistent to within a few minutes, too

16:52:53stripwaxwoah. I recorded 45% at 12:43

16:53:31stripwaxI'll plot my graphs and upload them somewhere. Maybe my battery is dying after all.

16:58:52XavierGrthat's because the battery can be so low to play music but not spin up the disk, so the last measurements are lost

20:50:25Nico_Pyeah, quite a lot of changes... I went through quickly
20:51:10linuxstbamiconn: I just test-compiled with only the firmware/ part of my viewports patch (i.e. not the wps changes), and it's 952 bytes for the ipod color.
20:51:28Nico_Plinuxstb: is there anything preventing the vp size from being dynamic?
20:52:11Nico_Phow much is it with apps/ too?
20:54:26linuxstbThe apps/ was another 1KB or so, I haven't checked the current version.
20:55:15linuxstbThe way I've implemented viewports in the wps, they can't be made dynamic (the tags are just read once, and not stored), but I guess they could be...
20:55:55Nico_Pbut in other code, they could be resized without a problem, couldn't they?

20:59:42quaalhow long does it take for rockbox to make the charge go up
20:59:52quaalthe ipod video was connected and charging for hours
21:00:01quaaljust disconnected and now it says 27%
21:00:03quaalkeeps going up
21:00:06quaal1% at a time
21:01:16linuxstbNico_P: (for the logs now...) Viewports can't really be resized dynamically because of the scrolling lines - I think you would need to stop the scrolling lines, change the viewports position/size and then draw the scrolling lines again.

21:03:51quaalthis whole counting up thing to get the final charge is kinda annoying

21:04:01quaalit must be using some kind of processing to figure it out
21:04:12Anon-E-MooseAre you using a dock or just plugging into the computer?
21:04:20quaalall i have is the usb cable
21:04:21fughidabowithey all - I just loaded the latest build on my 4th Gen Gray IPod and it is no longer getting past the "Rockbox loaded" bootloader
21:04:29fughidabowitI cannot even load the Apple OS
21:04:32Anon-E-MooseHave you had problems with it before, charging?
21:04:59fughidabowitits just stuck on the bootloader screen and won't continue
21:05:02Anon-E-Moosefughidabowit - Center, menu. Hold, restarts
21:05:07quaalAnon-E-Moose, nope when it had apple firmware i just plug it in for a while and unplug
21:05:11quaaland it told me it was fully charged
21:05:13Anon-E-Moosehold it, not set the hold switch :|
21:05:28fughidabowitYeah I can restart it that way as many times as I want - but it still gets stuck at the same place
21:05:31Anon-E-Moosequaal - How old is it?
21:05:40quaallooks like its stopped at 37%

21:10:48Anon-E-MooseCan't you just run the updater?
21:11:09fughidabowitlol there's an updater?
21:11:10stripwaxquaal - try charging after booting into the original firmware (then reboot to rockbox after it's charged). Rockbox (currently) doesn't charge very well *while* rockbox is running
21:11:20Anon-E-MooseAs in, go to the site and getting it again, but latest..
21:11:36Anon-E-MooseIt seems like the simplist solution, so it's probably not the best...
21:11:37fughidabowityeah well I have the latest .rockbox - but my bootloader is *old*
21:11:49stripwaxfughidabowit - can you run rbutil to update the bootloader?
21:12:00linuxstbOr just ipodpatcher...
21:12:09pixelmait should be easier to install a new one, you'll find instructions in the manual (almost the same as the first install so you'll find it in the installation chapter)

21:57:52linuxstbAlonoea: Looking at the code, rockpaint seems to use the same bmp reading function as the backdrop code uses. So if a bmp works in one, it should work in the other.
21:58:31linuxstbWhat is the exact error message you see? Are you sure it's not talking about the rockpaint plugin itself being incompatible?
21:58:32Alonealinuxstb: theoretically, but its not here. I can't load a picture that I am using for a backdrop.
21:59:04Alonealinuxstb: lemme see
21:59:29Alonealinuxstb: ah. its saying rockpaint is...odd. I pressed select earlier when it wanted to reboot.

22:01:32Anon-E-MooseHm. I plugged my ipod colour into the dock and it just displays the menus and such, does that mean that it's charging?
22:01:48*Anon-E-Moose is used to it just showing the apple logo and being innaccesable for the most part
22:02:23Alonealinuxstb: actually, now that I think of it, when the screen asks to reboot and you press select, I have never actually seen it reboot.
22:02:34linuxstbAre you on a gigabeat?
22:02:38Alonealinuxstb: yes
22:03:29linuxstbThen yes, "rolo" isn't implemented on the gigabeat - the feature that lets Rockbox start running another version of itself (it doesn't reboot). So that never works.
22:03:59Alonealinuxstb: ah. well, it might be helpful if the screen said that then. ^_^_

23:27:19linuxstbsalty-horse: I'm not sure, but it doesn't sound expected to me - I would have thought a backup should be the same as the original...
23:27:42MrKeunerAlonea: I do not have windows but gnome nautilus reads it well
23:28:02salty-horseI thought it was the sansa original vs rockbox versions
23:28:03MrKeunerAlonea: or any player in my linux box
23:28:04billeniumi have a big problem. Rockbox can't play a good portion of my songs. When i click on the song name it says "No File!"... if anyone could please help, it would be much appreciated!
23:28:11AloneaMrKeuner: good. linux is our friend. hmm...dunno whats up with sansa then.

23:28:54MrKeunerAlonea: you said left key right? so menu+left key should be pressed when sansa is off?
23:29:13linuxstbbillenium: What kind of files are they?
23:29:23billeniummusic files
23:29:33billeniumthey worked for a while
23:29:35Mouser_Xbillenium: What device do you have? If it's a Gigabeat, and you updated Rockbox, did you power down, and then reboot?
23:29:37billeniumbut all of a sudden stopped
23:29:45billeniumits an ipod nano
23:29:53AloneaMrKeuner: yes. though you dont have to do at same time. as soon as the screen pops on on startup, hold down left.
23:30:12billeniumits my own build too, but it worked for like 2 weeks after i compiled it, then stopped.
23:30:14AloneaMouser_X: hello dear.
23:30:44Mouser_Xbillenium: Have you tried rebooting anyway? I've sometimes had that problem, and rebooting fixed it.
23:31:00billeniumi rebooted it a couple times
23:31:02MrKeunerAlonea: I cannot do it, can it be any other key by any chance?
23:32:24BigBambibillenium: Could you try with the current build?
23:32:32AloneaMrKeuner: maybe, but that's what did it last night. you have installed rockbox already right and you want to load the OF? if so, then turn off player, turn on, hold down left key until it changes over.
23:32:35billeniumi like my build better o.o
23:32:41billeniumbut i guess i could
23:32:57BigBambiSure, but we need to check whether it is a rockbox problem or a your patches problem
23:33:08MrKeunerAlonea: oh, I haven't installed rockbox yet, so this feature comes with rockbox? OK then

23:33:17billeniumshould i just replace the .rockbox file
23:33:24BigBambiNo, all of it
23:33:25billeniumor should i unboot loader it
23:33:35AloneaMrKeuner: yes, I thought you wanted to know how to get into the OF for some reason after you install rockbox.
23:33:46BigBambibillenium: Are you using the standard bootloader?
23:33:57billeniumi believe so
23:34:00MrKeunerAlonea: yes but I was trying recovery before doing any changes :)
23:34:01AloneaMrKeuner: OF is original firmware, or the sansa firmware your player came with.
23:34:11billeniumi never changed the boot loader before
23:34:14billeniumonly the .rockbox folder
23:34:16BigBambiIn that case just unzip a new build overwriting everything

23:34:30billeniumsounds good
23:34:33BigBambiIf you just replace rockbox.ipod you will have problems
23:35:03billeniumoh also, my regular iPod (in regular ipod firmware mode) has the same problem.
23:35:07billeniumjust wanted to throw that out there
23:35:08AloneaMrKeuner: need to recover your sansa. rockbox is quite safe. it just tampers with the bootloader, not firmware. I also suggest installing rockbox with the manual method.
23:35:19BigBambibillenium: With the same files?
23:35:33BigBambiHave you tried them on a PC?
23:35:35billeniumwell i havent tested EVERy single one yet
23:35:37billeniumbut most of them
23:35:40billeniumill try now

23:35:53BigBambiSounds like they are corrupted
23:36:02BigBambiProbably a file system problem?
23:36:08MrKeunerAlonea: don't I need to replace bootloader in sansa, just as I did in ipod?
23:36:08BigBambiAre you Windows or linux?

23:36:27MrKeunerAlonea: just unzip that's enough?

23:36:55billeniumi really hope they arent corrupted
23:36:58BigBambiYou could also try a fsck.vfat
23:37:06BigBambiIf they are to check the filesystem
23:37:14BigBambiIt is like chkdsk in windows
23:37:17billeniummy songs arent saved anywhere
23:37:17Mouser_XMrKeuner: There's a manual. It will tell you how to install both Rockbox, *and* the bootloader.
23:37:21Mouser_XBoth need to be done.
23:37:27BigBambibillenium: Fingers crossed then
23:37:28AloneaMrKeuner: there is a difference between bootloader and firmware. if you have read the manual then you would know how to install. the sansapatcher.exe will do the bootloader and then you jsut unzip the rockbox.

23:38:05billeniumi dont have the mp3 codec =P
23:38:17billeniumswitching to XP
23:38:21AloneaMrKeuner: the manual should tell you everything you need to know on installation and most of the features. wiki should have everything else.

23:44:15billeniumXPthis sucks
23:44:19stripwaxjust update the database
23:44:21billeniumXPi lost 50 percent of my songs
23:44:38stripwaxdo you use itunes?
23:44:44billeniumXPnot usually

23:44:55*BigBambi hides
23:45:01billeniumXPthere backed up ony my dads computer
23:45:11stripwaxcould you, at some point, have used itunes and itunes resync'd your ipod and removed music in the process??
23:45:11BigBambiOK, so annoying but not fatal
23:45:12billeniumXPthats probably it
23:45:13Mouser_XIf I lost 50% of my songs, I'd be out 30,000+ files... If those were SIDs, I wouldn't care...
