Forgive me Mr. Tape,
I have some concerns and a couple of questions that you may be able to help me with.
Since before I attempted to update the what I thought was the correct firmware for V2 the e260 got sort of locked into “writing”. No file transfer took place with the V2 stuff but immediately before that I played a track from the 260 through my desktop sound system
When I restarted it I got a refreshing database or somthing .
Then when the smoke cleared and we determined that I really had a V1 I went through the ordeal of updating that firmware and the same thing happened. It got stuck in “writing”. Eventually I restarted the 260 with the button. When I pulled the plug it restarted gave me the same message. I’m not sure that the update was successful but it did scramble my tunes. A lot of the tracks disappeared. They came back when I changed the USB settings to MTP. Fact is I didn’t load anything with media player. Just dragged em over.
Here’s the txt file that loaded on the 260 dated today
Version Info: Product Rev.: PP5022AF-05.51-S301-01.11-S301.01.11A-D Base Code: 05.51-S301-01.11-S301.01.11A-D ODM Ver.: S301-01.11-S301.01.11A-D OEM Ver.: S301.01.11A-D Build Type: -D Build Date: 2006.07.14 Build Number: (Build 169.31)
Can you tell me if the update was successful?
Is there something more sinister going on? Should I format and start from scratch? Am I going to spend a lot of time putting tunes on the 260 only to have to drag it kicking and screaming into the lawn and shoot it?
Whew! naffa dat!
Next question is about Rockbox. Are there different versions? Where is it? Whats right for my V1 e260? I already ordered a 16 Gig card for its little butt before I found out it was a V1.
Is the V1 capable of album art? Where the hell do you put the .jpg’s for it? I read that they should go in the “same folder” but there are folders for Artist, Song etc. The device seems to be able sort and puts the tracks or at least refrences to them in several folders.
OK…I’m done now :manembarrassed:
