18:24:29cereal_killerIpod Nano 2nd gen is unstable, but as far as I know there are no major problems. See here:
18:24:58cereal_killerUSB is somehow buggy
18:25:18gevaertsI'd say the USB thing *is* a major problem, but it has an easy workaround of course (boot the OF or emergency disk mode)
18:26:35cereal_killergevaerts: I see
18:26:47workflowwell, its not fat formatted yet and i-m just reading the instructions on how to do it. but i cant find an mbr file for 2gen nano
18:26:47gevaertsIt's a matter of opinion of course :)
18:28:27funmanworkflow: which size is your nano?
18:29:32cereal_killerisn`t it sufficient to restore the iPod using iTunes on a PC?

19:33:29Mirthe clip+ isnty sdxc capable

19:33:33Mirdoesnt have the pins
19:33:41AlexPsdxc isn't really sdxc yet
19:33:49Miryes it is
19:34:08Mirthe specification says it has a 2nd row of pins
19:34:19AlexPLet me find it for you
19:34:21Mirits not like SD and SDHC
19:34:28AlexPThere are many people using them in Rockboxed players
19:34:40AlexPfor instance
19:35:36AlexPMir: Good explanation:,27811.msg188132.html#msg188132
19:35:56copperI haven't used the Clip+ in MONTHS and it's battery is still showing an impressive 87% :)
19:37:05copperseems to be working fine
19:37:11AlexPyep :)
19:37:12copperthe correct size is reported
19:37:23copperI can play files, no problem
19:37:29AlexPyeah, it is fne
19:37:45AlexPI'm not aware of any SDXC 3.1 cards yet, only 3.0 which are fine
19:38:10AlexPyes, in spec 3.1
19:38:13Mirsdxc has a 2nd row of pins
19:38:18AlexPDid you notice copper's working?
19:38:31AlexPOr read the links I provided
19:38:41copperI tried files at the beginning of the card, and files past the 32 GB mark
19:38:44copperall play fine
19:38:48Mirthis gives me hope i can get a 64gb and put it in my E200

19:38:55AlexPyes, it should work
19:39:07AlexPThere may always be some other issues
19:39:10saratoga_i think the new design is backwards compatible
19:39:22saratoga_IIRC the older pins are used if the hardware doesn't support the new ones
19:40:21AlexPEven better :)
19:40:26saratoga_low power devices probably dont want to use the high power interface anyway
19:40:33saratoga_high power/speed
19:42:58copperso apparently the speed is not due to some update on Rockbox
19:43:00copperit's the card
19:43:18coppersince my Clip+ is running an old(ish) version
19:43:27copperdamn, it feels good
19:43:33copperawesome purchase
19:44:36copperI'm not even sure my old Transcend card wasn't just a chinese knock-off
19:44:47copperI did buy it in some shady chinese store :O
19:44:53Mirtrancend isnt a chineese knockoff
19:44:57Mirit IS chinnese
19:45:13copperI'm sure the chinese make knock-offs of their own products!
19:45:40copperanyway, off-topic
19:46:13copperthe important information being, my 64 GB SanDisk microsdxc card works fine with both the Clip+ and the Fuze+ (Rockboxed)
19:46:31Miri hate the fuze +
19:46:40copperlove it
19:46:47Mirthe controls are crud and its slugish and laggy
19:46:52coppernot with Rockbox
19:46:59copperthe OF is unusable
19:47:07Mirnever got that far with mine
19:47:08copperbut with Rockbox, it's pretty awesome, IMO
19:47:29Miri ended up shipping mine to florida
19:47:32copperIMO it beats both my Clip+ and my iPod Classic
19:48:02Miri still prefer my E200 only because of the battery life

22:03:03bluebrotherthe problem is that autodetection needs to get reworked. I've started working on that but it's not finished
22:03:27bluebrotherthe problem is that users seem to not read what it displays
22:03:49bluebrotherand we don't do sanity checks afterwards.
22:03:49gevaertsAlso that some people just know "better
22:04:13gevaerts"Autodetect is wrong. I *know* it's a v2."
22:04:13bluebrotheryes, and that. Some people know that they have an Ipod 2G and wonder why it's not working on a Nano 2G

22:13:20bluebrotherthere's no official way to detect wine (that I'm aware of), but you can check for a specific Wine registry key

22:13:20copperbluebrother: just check for a directory named "drive_c", I guess
22:13:20coppermost likely in the user's home directory
22:13:20bluebrotherand where should that live? When running in Wine I don't see that :)
22:13:26bluebrotherWine tries to hide that it's Wine ...
22:13:28bluebrotherok. So you use a Windows binary, run it in Wine and expect to access $HOME?
22:13:28copperand a "dosdevices" directory in the same directory

22:13:57*bluebrother sighs
22:13:57AlexPIt might show up somewhere down Z: or something where you can access ~ from in wine?
22:13:57bluebrotheryes, I can check those. From a program that is running natively on the Linux box.
22:13:57AlexPUnless copper is suggesting that the linux version shouldn't run on linux if you have wine installed :)

22:22:18bluebrothergevaerts: nah. I won't bet on all those direct device accesses the patchers do to work
22:22:30bluebrotherplus, why are we providing Linux binaries?
22:22:59gevaertsFor those annoying people who think wine is the wrong solution :)
22:23:03AlexPCos linux on the desktop is this year!
22:23:15AlexPAnd that means not having to compile :)
22:23:58bluebrotherwe have binaries. You don't need to compile those :)
22:24:33AlexPI'm confused, by "plus, why are we providing Linux binaries?" I thought you were suggesting we shouldn't
22:25:13bluebrotheryes, but that's a different story :)
22:25:23bluebrotheruntil now we do
22:25:32AlexPBut I guess you meant why are people trying to use wine when we provide native binaries
22:25:49AlexPWhich does make more sense :)
22:25:53copperdoesn't the OF always come with the same partition label?
22:26:18AlexPWhich OF?
22:26:21copperany OF
22:26:36bluebrotherplus, users can change it
22:26:43AlexPAlso, why?
22:26:57bluebrotherit's simply way to unreliable
22:27:04bluebrotherway too many false positives
22:27:07copperbecause if they always had the same label, it would be easy to identify
22:27:16AlexPI'm wondering what it would help with, I must have missed the start
22:27:28bluebrotherthen gevaerts will label his root partition "Sansa e260" or something like that
22:27:40copperscrew him? ;)
22:27:49bluebrothererr ... no
22:28:03AlexPwell, if it were only gevaerts then yes :)
22:28:12AlexPBut if it might be others too, then no :)
22:28:30gevaertsFilesystem labels are *meant* to be changed
22:28:39gevaertsAnd partition labels don't exist :)
22:28:42bluebrotherthe problem is: we have players we cannot detect the mountpoint. Period.
22:28:43copperthe only sane way in my opinion is to sniff directory trees, and that's being worked on

22:29:40bluebrotherso the best thing we can do is to filter out everything that is definitely not the player and leave the rest to the user
22:29:44bluebrothercopper: ok, so we "sniff". What do you find on e.g. a h100 that identifies it?
22:29:56copperI don't know what you're talking about, sorry

22:31:47bluebrotherthe dropdown list is already filtered to remove all filesystems that are incompatible.

22:33:24bluebrotherhmm, though thinking about it that should filter out all Windows system drives anyway.
22:33:36bluebrothersince that's usually NTFS.
22:34:04AlexPbluebrother: can you select things other than the drop down list offers by typing in it?
22:35:07bluebrotherAlexP: no, only if you build it as debug binary.
22:35:18bluebrother(since it's quite useful for debugging)
22:35:22AlexPI wonder how people manage it then
22:35:38bluebrotherwell, if the dropdown list shows C: as valid entry?
22:36:06bluebrotherin debug builds you can edit the selected dropdown item
22:36:15AlexPYeah, I'm just a little surprised how many people have that as non-NTFS
22:36:25AlexPalthough I suppose it is tiny numbers actually

22:36:39AlexPah, missed that
22:36:44AlexPfair enough then :)
22:37:00gevaertsSo we're likely discussing a solved problem anyway :)
22:37:19AlexPExcellent, let's discuss it more!
22:37:27bluebrotheryeah, mountpoint filtering has been added on 1st April
22:38:01bluebrotherneed to check the filesystem type string for HFS+ on Windows though.
