I'm trying to install Rockbox on my sansa e260 v2 because it's no longer working properly and I thought I might as well try Rockbox before chucking it out.
The problem is that I can charge it fully, but then it shuts down after some 10 minutes or so... Then it won't even open at all until I plug it back into the computer. The "low battery" message doesn't even show, it just looks dead.
Anyways, I got Rockbox Utility and double clicked. It opens up and I get this message: Configuration error: Your configuration is invalid. This is most likely due to a changed device path. The configuration dialog will now open to allow you to correct the problem. I click OK. I click Autodetect. I get this message: Fatal error: Unless you changed this installation will fail!
I don't understand this message at all! What does it mean? I thought maybe it had something to do with the USB mode.. Problem is, I can't find where to change USB mode on my player. I went through all the settings but I still can't find it. I'm not even sure this is really the problem.
So my question is, what do I do next?
BTW: My computer runs Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx but I have a virtual machine with Windows 7 if that can be any help..
edit I think I can indicate to Rockbox Utility where my device is in the filesystem by using the browse button, effectively replacing the autodetect function, but I don't know where to find this information. I looked in the /media and /media/external folders but there's nothing in there. I can transfer songs fine through Rhythmbox, but I don't know where Rhythmbox found it..
I don't know if this can be any help: ->lsusb
->Bus 003 Device 004: ID 0781:7422 SanDisk Corp. Sansa E200 series v2 (mtp)
Notice it says MTP. I tried changing to MSC on the device, but I never found out how. I'm supposed to have a "USB Mode" option under "Settings", but I don't. Any idea why?
