Hi Sharon,

Sounds like you forgot to unzip a Rockbox build onto your H10. Reconnect it
to your PC in UMS mode, then download from this link:

Unzip it onto the root of your player (which would be the letter Windows
assigns it; for example F:\ or G:\), then disconnect
and restart the H10. Rockbox should then load.

There are some extra packages, like fonts and themes, available from this

Nobody's ever lost in life...they're merely taking the scenic route.
