16:30:42timetravelerrI'm not sure how to mount it manually
16:36:20timetravelerrI thought the majority of users on here used Ipods..
16:42:05timetravelerrI thought wrong

17:03:07cereal_eatertimetravelerr: I suggest to restore with iTunes and start installing Rockbox again#
17:04:20cereal_eaterby the way, it is an 6th gen iPod Classic, right? Is it modded?
17:06:45timetravelerrit is the 6th generation ipod and it isnt showing up on itunes
17:07:15timetravelerrAlthough Itunes showsup
17:08:01cereal_eaterwhat do you see, if you switch on your iPod?
17:08:16cereal_eateron its screen I mean
17:08:40***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:10:03timetravelerrHeres what it says Rockbox bootloader version 1.0 battery status ok: 3680mv loading rockbox.... error: Cant load rockbox.ipod: file not found entering usb mode... bootloader usb mode
17:11:08cereal_eaterok, then reset with pressing MENU + SELECT simultaniously and when the iPod restars, press SELECT + BACK to enter disk mode
17:11:24timetravelerroh jesus
17:11:48timetravelerrthe back button would be the play pause right?
17:12:11cereal_eaterif it is in disk mode your computer should see the device. Then unzip a .rockbox folder to the ipod
17:12:26timetravelerroh okay
17:12:28cereal_eaterno, back is the left button on the wheel
17:12:43timetravelerrSo drag the file folder rockbox onto the removable disk ipod?
17:13:17cereal_eateryes, but the unzipped foder. it should be named ".rockbox"
17:14:54timetravelerrA message says
17:15:04timetravelerrPlease enter disk inside removable disk
17:15:21cereal_eateris your iPod modded?
17:15:43cereal_eaterso it has the stock hard drive?
17:16:07timetravelerrno I recently installed four different micro sd cards
17:16:16timetravelerrinto a iflash quad
17:16:43timetravelerrthere isnt any firmware on the ipod
17:16:50cereal_eaterit seems, that the sd cards are not recognized by the iPod.
17:17:20cereal_eaterdoes iTunes see the iPod when in disk mode?
17:17:23timetravelerrIt previously had firmware but there isnt a firmware installed
17:17:48timetravelerrcause I removed a disk that had it installed
17:18:05 Join Rower [0] (
17:18:33cereal_eaterthe drive doesn't matter. the iPod has a internal storage where the firmware is installed.
17:19:01timetravelerrhow do I get it to enter diskmode?
17:19:08cereal_eateryou obvisously have the rockbox bootloader installed and if disk mode works, the apple OS also works on your device
17:19:33cereal_eaterpress the button combinations described above
17:20:06 Join ufdm [0] (
17:20:28timetravelerrwhat happens next?
17:21:05timetravelerrall I get is Load error: -1
17:21:08cereal_eaterare you in disk mode?
17:21:27cereal_eaterwithit the iPod being plugged in to USB
17:21:40cereal_eaterwithout I mean
17:22:44timetravelerrit isnt allowing me all it says is conect to usb
17:23:53cereal_eaterwait a second, I think I confused disk mode with diagnostic mode: SELECT + PLAY is disk mode
17:24:05timetravelerroh okay
17:24:22cereal_eaterSELECT + BACK is diagnostic mode which might give you some information about the storage
17:25:22timetravelerrshould I reset then enter diagnostics mode?
17:25:45cereal_eateryeas always restet with MENU + SELECT before starting it
17:26:12cereal_eaterdiagnostic mode can tell you if the sd cards are recognized
17:26:59timetravelerrDo i press Select + play simultaneously after I reset?
17:27:25cereal_eaterto enter diagnostic mode properly check this site:
17:27:49 Quit petur (Quit: Connection reset by beer)
17:28:49cereal_eaterSELECT + PLAY is for disk mode
17:30:34timetravelerrMy iPod doesnt have the original apple firmware in it
17:30:59timetravelerrI removed / rewrote it with rockbox files
17:31:23cereal_eaterdisk mode and diagnostic mode can't be removed by installing Rockbox
17:32:22cereal_eaterso give me a summary please: can you enter disk mode?
17:33:11timetravelerrI press restart then select + play but all I get is load of error: -1
17:34:16cereal_eaterI suspect it is the hardware combination. A lose cable or something.
17:34:38timetravelerrI connected everything properly...
17:34:51cereal_eaterCan you enter dignostic mode: here's a better description:
17:35:00timetravelerrall the cables are fastened well
17:37:26timetravelerris the screen supposed to change white to black?
17:38:06timetravelerryea Im not getting that
17:39:29cereal_eaterlet me explain, when reseting the iPod with MENU + SELECT the screen gets black, when the aplle logo appears press SELECT + BACK and the screen will be white
17:40:00timetravelerrYea the ipod doesn't start with apple logo
17:40:37timetravelerrit starts with how rockbox stars but instead there isnt abootlader
17:42:24timetravelerrSo everytime I restart the ipod it tells me its entering usb mode plug usb cable
17:45:35timetravelerrDid I break the iPod?
17:45:54cereal_eaterand when you plug the USB cable your computer doesn't see it?
17:46:14timetravelerrthe computer detects it
17:46:19timetravelerras a removable disk
17:46:29timetravelerrbut itunes does not
17:46:47cereal_eatercan you copy files to the disk using a file explorer?
17:47:18timetravelerrit tells me please insert disk inside disk
17:47:58timetravelerrplease inser disk inside removable disk
17:48:16cereal_eaterI really think that you have a hardware problem.
17:48:48timetravelerrthe disks arent being recognize?
17:48:55timetravelerrby the Ipod?
17:48:59cereal_eaterthe iFlash adapters work with some cards and don't with others.
17:50:11timetravelerrI open the ipods property and it says there are disks inside...
17:50:23timetravelerrbut it doesnt display storage]
17:50:39cereal_eaterare you in disk mode?
17:50:51timetravelerrno im in usb mode
17:51:32timetravelerrI click on the removable drives property and it displays all four cards
17:51:43timetravelerrI have the ipod connected
17:52:27timetravelerrit says that the devices are working properly..
17:53:49cereal_eaterthe iFlash adapter should merege all cards and show just one drive.

17:57:05cereal_eatercan you manually format the card as fat32?
17:57:28timetravelerrIm not sure how to and it doesnt show up to begin with
18:00:14cereal_eaterwhen you connect the iPod to your computer, does it show up as one drive or four?
18:00:34timetravelerrit only shows up as one drive which is removable disk
18:01:54cereal_eatercan you right click on the drive and format it?
18:02:44timetravelerryes I can right click excpet it says i need to enter a disk...
18:03:06timetravelerrit says to insert a disk
18:03:37timetravelerrI might have to change the drives paths?
18:04:04cereal_eaterno, I think this means the disk (sd cards and adapter) are not recognized by the iPod.
18:04:33timetravelerryet the ipod is recognized on the computer
18:04:35cereal_eatermaybe it is a fault sd card or the combination of adapter and cards that doesn't work
18:05:35timetravelerrMa n but its displays on property settings...
18:06:07cereal_eateryes the iPod is showing up, but not the drive
18:07:12timetravelerrheres what it saysHS MS / HS CF / HS SD / HS xD cards USB device
18:07:53cereal_eaterthis sounds like you have pluged in a multiple card reader
18:08:43timetravelerrthats what it displays on property settings when i right click ipod / removable disk
18:10:44cereal_eaterso can you open the ipod in explorer?
18:10:54timetravelerrhow do I do that?
18:11:04cereal_eaterare you on windows?
18:11:44cereal_eatergo to my computer and double click on the drive
18:11:49timetravelerrwould there need to be a firmware for the disks to show up as unalocated on computer managment
18:12:16timetravelerryea I cant explore the drive it says I need tp insert a disk
18:12:59cereal_eaterthen the sd cards are not recognized
18:13:08timetravelerroh no...
18:13:24timetravelerrAre gigastone sd cards good cards?
18:13:47cereal_eaterI don't know. Check the iFlash page for compatibility.
18:15:07timetravelerrit says the adapter is compatable..
18:15:27cereal_eatermake also sure, that the adapter is installed right (right side facing up) and the ribbon cable is seated properly

18:17:29timetravelerrhmmm.. if the drives are recognized would that mean they show up as unalocated in disk managment
18:17:30cereal_eatercompatibility of adapter and cards: check and the SD Cards tab
18:18:02cereal_eaterI think so
18:18:09timetravelerrits not a sd card its micro sd cards
18:18:27timetravelerrusing the iflash quad
18:19:27cereal_eatersee the information on the quad then

18:20:43cereal_eatergood luck!
18:21:09timetravelerrthanks one more question'
18:21:52timetravelerrwould the ipod need a firmware for the disks to show up as allocated on disk management?
18:22:29cereal_eaterno, the adapter should show the micros sd cards as one single drive
18:22:59cereal_eaterif you have the rockbox bootloader and it enters usb mode, the storage should show up, no matter if it is unallocated or not
18:23:33cereal_eaterusually iTunes formats the storage properly
18:24:01timetravelerrexept it isnt showing up on itunes..
18:24:32cereal_eaterthen the storage inside the ipod is faulty
18:25:23timetravelerrbut it still shows up on property...
18:26:25timetravelerrTEAC USB HS CF Card USB Device
18:27:03cereal_eaterthis is not the ipOd
18:27:18timetravelerrits in the Ipod
18:27:30timetravelerrunder property settings
18:28:08cereal_eaterI googled this and this is most likely your card reader

23:33:24Timetravelerrill reinstall it
23:33:37cereal_eatercopy a fresh build over:
23:34:31Timetravelerrrockbox utility stopped responding ...
23:36:21Timetravelerralright I copied the files onto the drive
23:37:31TimetravelerrIs there a firmware that takes less space?
23:38:56cereal_eateris 8 MB for the Rockbox folder too much?
23:39:08Timetravelerrno its 16MB
23:39:39TimetravelerrYea it seems like a lot to me
23:39:46cereal_eaterah yes, if unzipped. No, this is what you get if you want Rockbox.
23:40:22Timetravelerryea.. im sure the apple firmware takes more space
23:40:59cereal_eateryou could delete plugins and stuff you don't need inside the rocks folder to reduce size
23:41:11Timetravelerris it still supposed to display as removable disk?
23:41:41cereal_eaterif in disk mode, yes
23:41:51Timetravelerroh right
23:42:18cereal_eaterdoes Rockbox work now?
23:42:27Timetravelerrnot sureI have to reset the ipod
23:42:33cereal_eaterdon't forget to safely remove the iod
23:42:59Timetravelerrokay but now the ipod isnt able to disconnected cause its too much for the windows
