Hi you ask:
I have sent several messages asking for help. I am not sure if they got
through. I have a Zune and need speech Software. Can any one create Rock Box
software to work with Zune?
Sure they can. It's another story to think that a developer will do it
If I remember correctly the Zoom is a Microsoft product right? Most open
source coders do not like Microsoft. It's the principal of the think I
You need to know that a lot of work goes into porting rocbox on any player.
Don't get your hopes up man!

.I'm not sure this went through. I'm not at my PC w/ the address book.
.I received a 60 GB white IPod for Christmas. I'm installing Rockbox, but am
.receiving errors at step 8 in the manual. I unzipped the font and the CVS
.build to themain root of the player. I also put the english voice file in
.the lang dirrectory. I downloaded the two files for my PC that are in the
.c:\rockbox folder of my PC. I went to run then typed in cmd and pressed
.enter. Typed in c:\rockbox, and got to that dirrectory.
.Then I typed in ipodpatcher --scan
.I was told it was device 1 or given the number 1. Then I made the backup by
.typing ipodpatcher 1 -r bootpartition.bin
.That went fine.
.Then I typed in ipodpatcher 1 -a bootloader-ipodvideo.ipod
.I got some kind of error saying failed to load bootloader. It recognizes it
.as a FAT32 5 gen IPod video, and is in disk mode.
.Help!? I followed all steps in the Rockbox manual. For other Blind users,
.I'm using Jaws 8, and XP home.
