Hello Sarai

The 60 GB white is an Ipod Video 60 GB second generation. This generation of
the Ipod isn't currently supported by Rockbox.
However, according to previous postings to the list, making the Ipod Video
Second generation compatible with Rockbox is an attainable goal.

Best Wishes,
Peter Herngaard
