plz use real words as per our forum guidelines. They also apply to thread titles. thx for reading them.

And no, I won't send you and "original files". You need to restore the Ipod before you can install Rockbox. The most likely way is using Itunes for this, but it can be done manually by following the instructions on the IpodManualRestore wiki page.

And we can't help you on a "hdd error" if you don't tell use the error.

kugel is right i have an iaudio m3 and therefore itunes is useless in my case.

if i would know what the problem with my hdd toshiba mk4004gah is, i would'n ask. if i put on the player the display says "hdd error"
btw (i hope this shortcut is allowed) i tried to read my hdd with an adaptor for 1,8 inch hdd in my pc. but there was no chance.

thanks for your help

Oops, missed that part and for some unknown reason assumed an Ipod :o
Have you tried reading SMART data from the hard disk when connected to the PC? Maybe that can tell you something.
