Gigabeat-S / USB / Windows

From: Chisel Wright <>

Sorry if this is the wrong list; I had a quick look at the summaries and
archive posts on and thought this was the
best place for an initial posting.

This evening I checked the status of rockbox wrt. the Gigabeat-S
( and saw that
it's pretty much there, or at least potentially usable as long as I
expect the occasional glitch.

I installed cygwin, compiled my bootloader, transferred it to the device
- all without any trouble.

When it came to the fdisk tweak and .rockbox/ extraction I had to switch
to my linux machine (File Not Found under windows)

Between the two machines I managed to boot-up rockbox and play some

The strange thing I'm experiencing now is that the device is detected as
expected on the linux box (viewing /var/log/messages) but windows
doesn't appear to see it at all: no "I found something USB" noise,
nothing at all appears in the USB monitor I just installed.

My other player (Gigabeat-F) works just fine (using the same USB cable,
in the same USB hub, etc)

Any ideas?
