Not clear to me from reading that where you are getting your ipod build
from. I suspect the current build for ipod 5g 60/80GB doesn't support disks
with a physical sector size > 1024 bytes (like the drive you put in your
ipod) and you would need a modified build - are you using a modified build
or the regular rockbox build?
That said, I recall seeing changes that would allow to support this, but I
don't know if an updated bootloader has been made available yet.
Primarily the regular rockbox builds support only unmodified hardware. Check
the forums for modified builds to support your modifications.

 Ok these are the things I have done so far
1 created file on desktop with build for ipod video 80gb, bootloader, and
ipod patch
2 right click and shift same time onto folder from desktop to get into
command mode
3 copy and paste line " ipodpatcher -a bootloader-ipodvideo.ipod " into
command mode.
4 let it do its thing
5 type exit then hit enter
6 using the same file on desktop, I copy and paste into the drive for the
ipod on computer
7 run automatic utility
8 eject ipod
9 I get either black screen with "PANIC Unsupported physical sector 4096",
or I get a white screen with a flicker of the ROCKBOX logo page then back to
"PANIC Unsupported physical sector 4096"
10 press menu and select at same time, then menu play to get check mark
stating ok to disconnect
11 start over again

I can't figure it out! Wish they would commit the build to the build without
all the added steps. So many of us long to have this work, but can't
figure the install out. Big drag. Not sure what to do, so been leaving the
ipod connected to computer. (hope it is ok for both) Who knows when I will
be able to figure this out. Hoping someone can help me, and others. Thanks
