So did you flash the player after placing your music in the ipod?

  But I've pretty much done that and yet I get nothing. I mean the first thing I tried was to paste the music directly onto the Ipod. Not in the rockbox folder, I only tried that later after my first experiment didn't work. LOL. But when I hit okay on files from the main menu there is just nothing. Certainly nothing speaks which I assume means that it isn't seeing the music. I also tried okay on data base too after files didn't work, I got a message asking if I wanted to initialize the data base which I did, but then I could find nothing in their either.

  My apologies for not explaining sooner by the way, I am completely blind so am having to use the speech feature of rockbox. I don't think that is the problem though because it is speaking all of the menus just fine, it's just not finding any files for me and yet, from what you've said here, I am doing things correctly.

    Hi Dan,

    Use Windows Explorer to put the music somewhere other than the .rockbox folder. I have a folder at the root called Music into which I put all my music, but you don't have to do it this way. Then when you turn on your iPod with Rockbox running, choose Files from the main menu, and you'll be at the root of your drive. You should be able to find your folders and files from there, exactly where you put them using Windows Explorer.
