On my Sansa, with Rockbox installed, when I connect it to my PC via USB, the Rockbox firmware will reboot the Sansa into the original Sansa firmware. Sometimes I need to do this twice to get it to take. When I disconnect the Sansa, the Sansa will reboot and reload the Rockbox firmware. I'm running Rockbox version 3.2, which I believe is the latest.

It sounds like you're saying this isn't necessary in the newish versions of Rockbox, and that I can enable the USB stack in Rockbox. It sounds like this is the default, but this isn't the behaviour I'm seeing on my rockbox. Is there a way to configure this? I didn't see anything in the Rockbox menus or the documentation for Rockbox on the Sansa players.

BTW, you're top posting which violates the list etiquette. You should place your comments beneath the message you're replying to, after pruning the message of irrelevant material.
