This is because you have resume enabled but your disk
has no partition table, so there is no room to write the
resume information.

Turn off Resume in "General settings" and this message
should go away.

I agree that the message should be made more informative.

I have a Studio 6000, built-in v 5.03, RockBox 1.3 (as well as daily
builds after 1.2)

Turning off RESUME does clear up the WPS, but viewing or
changes to menu settings is always greeted by the "save failed,
battery low ?" message. No settings persist after a power-down. Is
the 6000 capable of persistent settings? Have I missed something?

Thanks for all your amazing work.

No, you haven't missed something. The Rockbox (and the stock
firmware) uses unused sectors between the partition table and the first
partition to store the persistent settings.
Your disk is probably
formatted without a partition table, and thus there are no unused sectors
where Rockbox expects it to be. This will be addressed in future versions
of Rockbox, but your immediate solution is to repartition your drive.

This error message is removed since a while back. It now fails silently.
