Rockbox on the Ipod 3G doesn't have USB support. You need to reboot into the Apple firmware for USB connection. See the manual on how to do that.

See the FAQ: http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/IpodFAQ#Does_USB_work_63

I know to reset and use with I Tune
But, I'd rather use rockbox

That's too bad !

Thks for your support

Put the Ipod into disk mode. No need for itunes, just the Apple firmware for USB
