FS#13318 - No USB Mode in Settings

New here.

Woke up this morning and tried to put some new music on ROCKBOX’d iPod Classic 6 V3.15

Unable to connect to Laptop - when I looked for USB mode nothing there in General Settings/System as per manual.

Replicated - I just installed Rockbox today (19 Aug 2022) on my iPod Classic 6 - same issue. No USB mode setting available, and while the iPod is connected to my computer, it defaults to USB keypad mode, with no option to alter that. Included a photo for reference.

iPod MC297 (classic, 160gb)
Rockbox v3.15

Update: I checked today's daily build (220819) and the USB mode is definitely there. Version 5e757b4d6e-220819.

I had thought the USB mode setting was causing my iPod to get stuck in USB keypad mode while connected to the computer, looks like it might be more likely to be a combination of USB HID being set to yes and no USB mode option available?

Issue replicated with: Rockbox v3.15, any USB HID setting, USB connected.
Issue resolved with: Build 5e757b4d6e-220819, USB HID set to "no", USB connected, USB mode available and set to "mass storage"
