FS#272 - Boot failure


I have an Archos Jukebox 6000 with firmware 5.05.
It used to work perfectly with RockBox 1.3, but now
it won´t boot, displaying first the RockBox
splashscreen, then:

No FAT32 Pa

The player still works with the original firmware&upgrades,
but rockbox won´t run even after formatting the HD.

This message means that Rockbox could find no FAT32
partition on your disk. It seems Archos ship disks with all
kinds of strange partition and formatting configuration.

How did you reformat the disk? Which operating system did
you use? What parameters? Did you partition the disk
before formatting?

I reformatted the disk using Windows ME (the OS did not give
me any
options regarding the file system, but when I look
at "properties" it
says the file system is FAT32)
I tried "quick format" and "complete",
both with the same
results. I did not partition the disk.
The original
disk worked with rockbox, but one day it just
stopped working,
without any changes made by me. I use
the Jukebox in my car. On the
way to my job it played fine, on the way back it failed to start up several
(probably due to low batteries), then it displayed the error

message. When I charged up the batteries I could access
drive via USB, the Archos firmware did work,
but rockbox didn´t.

Is this still a problem?

It works fine now with Version 1.4. Thanks a lot!
