Hi Hamish,

When you want only execule commandlines, than it is simple. You can open a editor like notepad. There you type on each line a command. Then you save the file asl instipod.bat. Also it is an option to use the command pause, for example:

commandline 1
command 2
command 3

The result is that a commandline will be execute and the command pause stops the batch. When the user press a key, the next line wil be execute.

When this way isn't the right way, can you discribe then the completely procedure to install rockbox onto the ipod? I do'n't have an ipod, so I cann't try a batchfile.

Hi Carl-Pieter

Whilst this would be a nice thing to have just one batch file would not be feasible. This is because there are too many variables for the differing models of ipods and for the number that the pc sees the Ipod on on any given computer. If you were referring to a batch file that would work only for me then I am happy to send you the commands that I use as I would be interested in looking at the batch file you create.

Let me know and I can send the commands to you privately.

  Hi Hamish,

  Do you want to make a automatic procedure to install the rockbox software onto the ipod? I'm sure that Blind perons like that. I'm blind too. It is simple to do with a batchfile. If you can give me the commands to execute. Then I'll make a example batch-file.

  Hi All

  I have installed Rockbox on a few Nanos for friends of mine and will shortly be doing another batch of four or five. I was wondering if anyone knew of a command line utility that would allow me to paste text from the clipboard at the command prompt. this would greatly reduce the mucking around a blind person would have to do to make sure that each of the commands are being correctly entered at the command prompt. I will have a look around at the weekend but if anyone can save me the time I am sure all the blind Ipod users would be grateful if such a thing exists.

  cheers as always
