While I'm at it, can the wheel in the Nano second generation be made to click as with the one in the first generation Nano?

I am quite familiar with technology, but very new to portable devices such as the IPod. Thanks for your assistance.

  Thanks for the help. Looks like it is, indeed, a second-generation Nano. It does have a metallic body.

  Is anyone aware of any plans to get Rockbox to work with this type of player, or am I completely out of luck?----- Original Message -----

    If you just received it then there is a pretty good chance it is a second generation Nano which wont work with Rockbox. You can tell the difference in two simple ways the second gen has a metallic feel to its body and the edges are slightly rounded where the first gen feels more plastic and has square edges. If it is a second gen then you are out of luck.

      I just received an IPod Nano and am attempting to install Rockbox. I am following the instructions given on the homepage of Brian Hartgens.

      I connected the Nano to the computer and had a sighted person set ITunes to enable to use as disk. I noticed that, when i found the Ipod in Windows Explorer, no music was shown - just calendar, contacts, and notes folders.

      The second problem came when i ran the command

      ipodpatcher --scan

      I received the message

      [err] no ipods found

      Any assistance will most definitely be appreciated.
