FS#1182 - Doom Virus

So, the Doom game locks up my FM Archos. No exit,
no timeout. My Win2000 system requires the Archos to
be turned on first and functioning, before it can access
it. Since the Archos is locked up in Doom, I cannot
access it from the pc to remove Doom. Catch 22. Ha
Ha, I lost 20 gig of music. Take Doom off your site, or
put in a timeout, and we’ll call it a ‘live & learn’.

The fact that you actually had to number which nobody you are, explains the confusion.

Connect the USB cable before you turn on the archos. That way, the
doom game will not load.

Connecting the USB before turning it on doesn’t always work
in Windows 2000.

What you need to do is turn the archos on and wait for the
loading progress bar to get to 50% (it then pauses for a short
while whilst loading rockbox) basically at this point, before
you see the rockbox logo, plug in the USB - windows will
then pick up the connection.

I did install the April fool Doom version (how did you ever
expect Doom to run on the archos!) but I’ve had this problem
with some builds in the past and this 50% plug in has worked
every time.

“I did install the April fool Doom version”

Damn stupid typo…I of course meant I didn’t install the
version!

if you can’t load the archos because of win2k, its a win2k NOT an archos problem. And you say you didn’t install in the comments, but in the initial post you state the Doom game is locking it up. Which is it?

I am nobody2 - the nobody who is trying to help out nobody1.

I didn’t install doom as i’m not stupid.
I did post an email saying that win2k doesn’t always notice
the archos.
I didn’t ever suggest this was a rockbox or archos problem -
its a win2k problem

I will not be helping people again.

</attitude>

Fair enough.

I would probably take exception to the fact that you were
trying to help though! You just highlighted that nobody1 was
blaming the wrong thing then took issue with how honest they
were being…

I presume nobody1 hasn’t read this since then anyway -
honestly I don’t know why we bother.

I’m the Nobody (I think), with the win2k Doom lockup issue.
The suggestion to wait to 50% on the progress bar worked!
My alternative of borrowing a win98 system to remove it
wasn’t necessary. To those who became disgruntled in
helping, please take heart - good intentions are always
appreciated.
Sincerely,
Nobodys Fool

</disgruntled> - I have a lot of emotions to stop displaying!

Good to know that my original intention of helping you out
actually got there in the end.

I found the solution a couple of months ago - I spent hours
copying MP3‘s to my posh new FM recorder and then
someone with a normal recorder suggested I tried rockbox -
this was at the point that rockbox didn’t work on the FM - So i
had that cold sweat ‘i’ve destroyed my nice new purchase
feeling’ until I played around and found this solution

Cheers
