Hi, new to the forums and I'm having trouble. I have an old Gigabeat F40 that had the headphone jack get messed up, so for the last couple years I've simply used it as a large flash drive for my modded gaming consoles and the like. However, a couple days ago, a friend of mine managed to fix the headphone jack... we think. I decided I wanted to check and see if it worked, and I knew about Rockbox already so I figured I'd just put it on and I'd have an MP3 player again.
I should have known it wouldn't be that easy. :\
I have done everything under the sun to get this thing to work -- I've used the dummy files on the Gigabeat page, installed everything correctly and to the correct spots on the Gigabeat, done the hard-drive removal thing and followed everything to the letter, etc. I'm not incompetent at all when it comes to this sort of thing, I didn't make any mistakes and to make sure I did everything at least 3-4 times the same way and even tried switching up some of the directions when that didn't work to see if it would help. Nothing I've done has gotten it to change from Error 00000020. I'm pretty much ready to give up on it, but the one thing I have not done is try using the original firmware with it again. I don't have the old disc, but I did find the upgrade program online and even that didn't work because it didn't recognize my device as a Gigabeat at all. I doubt even the original firmware will work, but I have to make sure I've exhausted every option before I completely give up, so could somebody do me a huge favor and upload their original GBSYSTEM folder and message / email me the link? It'd really be very helpful.
Thanks for your time!
