I click Next or Previous button to skip to another song but instead of that, my ipod just do

Fast Forward and Rewind for 2 seconds per click. I knew that Fast Forward and Rewind should be

done if you press and hold the Next/ Previous buttons only.

I read the manual of rockbox but nothing helps. Pls let me know if it is normal or not? Thank you!


Hello mate,

My 160gb Classic did the same, pretty sure i changed it in playback settings.....

Haven't had a chance to install yet, though. Anyway, just sayin'. Certainly safer to stick with r859 (though I've no problems with r868).


i'll try it

Tks you! It's true that we must adjust in playback setting but it is the option called "Skip length".

Now everything is fine. Rockbox is great and has a lot of thing to customize but somehow it takes

us time to get to the right location!

Could someone find out if you could get a dock 30pin to coax to work? Maybe that is how we get our unmolested digital signal

Um, no. Wishful thinking will not produce a digital signal.

DAMN

I recently installed Rockbox to my classic, and I've come across a really annoying issue. I'm hoping this has more to do with Rockbox and not the Classic being "unusable" so that there's maybe an easy solution.

 

When I try to drag albums onto my iPod, it just disconnects. It stays charging, but Windows tells me the file is too large to transfer, etc. When I unplug the device, which is no longer recognized, I get a white screen that says "Mount" or something like that. I reset the device and then try to use it again. Any reasons why I'm having this problem?

 

I already have 300+ songs on the device with over 60 GB left. Why was I able to transfer those files and not anymore? (Files are not corrupt or anything.)

Which Emcore version and which Rockbox version are you running?

 

You could try to reformat the data partition in the Emcore menu, then you need to copy a new Rockbox version to the drive again. If that doesn't work you could try to only copy 1 GB of music and see if that works ok & stable to play, connect via USB, boot, shutdown etc. If you then keep copying other music/media to the drive it's possible to find out at which point ('X'th GB) the drive is damaged if that is the case.

I've been tagging from my iPod, so all the music is properly tagged on my device but not my computer, so all my work will be gone if I reformat? I was hoping to get those files on my computer, then just uninstall and reinstall, but it disconnects when I transfer from the device, also.

Hey guys. I Rockboxed in Jan or Feb and haven't updated since. Currently running version "93130beM-130110". Where should I update. I'm pretty sure I got this build from the aroldan dropbox. I was just in there and last update was 6 months ago, not long after I Rockboxed. Did something happen, am I missing something?

Have you tried another computer or at least a different USB port?  Also (assuming the classic is like every other rockbox'able DAP I've heard about) you could try holding a button when you switch it on and it will boot to the original OS, then you can plug it in and might be able to copy your tagged music back from there.  Would suck to lose all that work tagging!

 

Edit: Or if the original OS is gone you could try putting it in disk mode?

If by coax he means sp/dif, that will never happen since there is no sp/dif transceiver on the ipods.

 

There is USB though, so that could be used to drive a DAC.  Basically implement support for USB audio class devices, then the ipod would look like an ordinary PC to a USB DAC.  Seems fairly pointless though, as the line out and headphone out on the Classic are both exceptional, so I don't see anyone taking an interest in this.
