Subject: IPOD Video emergency disk mode freezes

IPOD Video emergency disk mode freezes

From: asettico <>

Hi all,
in order to backup all my Ipod Video contents, I connected it to my laptop
(Ubuntu 8.04) and I tried to save it with "tar c ...", without compression.
After some minutes of disk activity, the disk mode freezed, so I had to
reboot the DAP.
Instead, using a normal "cp -a ..." command the operation was completed

After that, I compared the source and the destination contents with a "diff
-r ..." command, but the disk mode freezed once again.
The same operation was successfully completed using the USB connection in OF.

Note: I flashed the DAP just once, when I installed Rockbox for the first
time (r13680-070621).

Have anybody noted the same behaviour?
How can I check if the bootloader has been updated?

Thanks for any suggestion.
