I have a Jukebox Recorder 10 with 1.28 firmware. When I
originally obtained the unit, I loaded the Rockbox 2.0 and it
ran great. Then, for some misguided reason I reformatted
the drive and reloaded everything (ok, USB 1.1 is slow, but
my iPod can't record) and ever since then I get the
following error message "save failed is battery low?" (I do
believe that the batteries are being charged properly)

I do not get this when I run with the original Archos

The "config00.cfg" file is being written, and I think that it is
being read, but is there something like a parameter ram (or
flash) that may be corrupted? Is this something that the
Rockbox firmware can fix?
This task depends upon

It sounds like you forgot to partition the disk before formatting
it. That will produce this message.

I think I did partition the drive after formatting, and I have about
6 gigs of mp3 on it at the moment. I will have to admit that I did
not reformat the drive under Windows, but I think I did reformat
it as a FAT-32 device, and it seems to mount as one. The unit
plays mp3, but with the "save failed is battery low?" message on
all the time.

If what you suggest is right, I would not be able to write files to
the Archos. I am not sure if there are formating or partitioning
parameters that need to be set up for the unit to work properly.

Again, the unit works, but the screen shows the "save failed is
battery low?" message all the time.

How did you format the disk? If you are using linux, which
device name are you mounting?

This error message is changed to a more correct one.
