hi Sarai,

I believe that people are having some small success with the new 30GB
5.5G iPod and Rockbox, although the installation procedure is fairly
unpleasant, and I believe it renders the disk unusable by the Apple

But the 80GB 5.5G does not work at all at present. There is some
apparent difference with the larger disk, that is causing immediate crashes.

hope this helps (and I hope it's correct)

Why does the makevoices.vbs include sub-routines for SAPI4, if you can not create voice files with SAPI4?

Hi Glenn,

To load the Rockbox firmware, hold down Menu and Select (that's the
top of the wheel and center button) until you hear some sound. To
load the At 04:47 PM 11/7/2006, you wrote:Apple firmware, hold down
Menu (the top of the wheel) for about 10 seconds. Whichever firmware
you load will load every time you turn on the iPod until you switch
to the other one.
