Re: *PANIC* recfile: -4 and lose everything
Thanks for your response. I will go back and find an earlier version of
Rockbox to try, although I would expect the same, or similar error. I'll
also F1 boot into the Archos firmware and see if that helps.
I created and formatted the partition via XP's Logical Disk Management
I don't know, it just seems that the Archos is a POS. This is my second one
and they've both had issues.
