FS#9187 - Newer releases, No parition found - JBR FM

I have an Archos FM Recorder that has worked just fine with Rockbox for ages, up to today. Today I tried to put the latest build on it and started getting a “No partition found. Insert a USB cable to fix it” error.

I replaced an older build that did work. I have scanned the disk, no problems found. If I remove Rockbox or install Release 2.5, the player boots and seems to work fine. I have tried older builds, back to 2008-6-11, and each has the problem (the build I replaced was much older than that but I don’t have the version).

Has something changed with Rockbox that I have not yet discovered? Is there anyone that can offer any help?

Reason for closing:  Fixed

On 15/05/2008 a strict check for partition type was added:;r2=17530;pathrev=17530

and I suspect this is the reason for the error. If you have access to a partition tool, disk editor or similar utility could you perhaps check what your partition type is and if it differs from:

0x0b, 0x1b, /* FAT32 + hidden variant */
0x0c, 0x1c, /* FAT32 (LBA) + hidden variant */

You could then either change it to the appropriate value or if it is a valid value that we have missed, we will add it to the list.

Thanks for the help. As it turns out the partition on the player was not the right type and had other problems. I used PartedMagic to look at the disk and it reported a few oddities in the partition table. I removed, re-created and formated the partition and am now in working order. My guess is the partition table had become corrupted over time. It has been quite some time since I have paid it any attention.
