so i did the whole thing and reinstalled with the newer versions of emcore and rockbox
it seems to be working better but i noticed that most of my files do seem to copy, with a few exceptions [and those send the ipod into fits]. maybe the problem is with the files in my computer being corrupted or something? does that happen?
edit: well, any of this is now irrelevant. i got really fed up with the hd clicking noisily away while trying to copy more bad files so i tapped it rather hard a few times and it turned off. i turned it back on and all i got was a white screen so i tried restoring it with itunes again but it failed to restore it. several times.
so it was the hd. i just realized that all my problems started after i dropped it on the floor the other day.
oh well. guess it's time for a new mp3 player
