FS#566 - Save Failed - Batt. Low?

When saving preferences, I get that error (Save Failed - Batt.
Low?) with a Studio20 that i upgraded with a 40 gig hard drive.
(The original 20 had major errors on the hard drive, but didn’t throw
this error with rockbox1.2) The new drive writes fine with my
computer. Is this error due to the upgrade, or something else?

Make sure that your hard drive really has a partition table.
If it hasn’t, Rockbox has no “safe” sector to write the
settings to.

This drive came pre-partitioned.. I can re-fdisk it however, since I have
the mp3s backed up.

I will download the source and slog through things to see if there’s
another safe sector for rockbox to write :)

I’ve been trying to use the Archos Jukebox w/ rockbox after
formatted on a OS-X boxen. This problem cropped up and I
thought I would share the results. To Correct:

from a terminal

pdisk -initialize /dev/rdisk{#}
pdsik /dev/rdisk{#} -createPartition DOS_FAT_32 64 39070080

newfs /dev/rdisk{#}

mkdir /archos
mount /dev/disk{#}

and there you have a happy archos under OS-X

I just purchased a Jukebox Recorder 15 from
The hard disk was an IBM IC25N015ATDA04-0

I took out the the hard disk and put it into my workshop
computer. Partition Magic and Fdisk both said there was no
partition table. The hard disk had no partition table as it
arrived from Archos. I created a 15gig FAT32 partition,
formatted it, and upon reassembling the Archos, this error
went away.

It can be expected that anyone who tries to use the Rockbox
software will hit this error at their first attempt, as Archos is
not sending the disks out with a partition table initialized.

Thanks for Rockbox - It rocks!
I did my first build yesterday - changed
CHARGE_RESTART_LO and disk_spindown - Cool…
