Title: iPod 4th gen - Mountpoint is not writeable
Post by: zoran on July 22, 2014, 06:51:34 AM
I used Rockbox utility and successfully finished installing Rockbox on my iPod 4th gen. However, after I unmounted my iPod, unplugged it, did a hard reset and switched it on, I got the "file not found" icon. I tried reinstalling Rockbox to no avail.

On my third attempt, I got the "mountpoint is not writeable" error. I tried using chmod 777 on mountpoint but it didn't help. I'm using Arch Linux.

What should I do next?

Thanks for help.

Well, I managed to fix that by simply changing the mountpoint to something else. However, when I try to install Rockbox, this time I get  "creating output path failed" and "extraction failed" errors. :( I'm really clueless here.

Either you're mounting it as root and trying to access it as a regular user, or (more likely) the filesystem is corrupted. Check dmesg output to see if it's the latter.

Is that regarding the first problem (that I managed to fix) or second problem?

Also, what should I look for in dmesg? It outputs a lot of things.

Here's what I get when I used dmesg with grep sdb:

I also tried opening my iPod in GParted but it has no formatted partition or partition table, nor is it posible to make one. Everything so far indicated that it's not possible to write on the disk.

Is my iPod bricked or something? :/

Is it actually booted or in disk mode?  If you just plug a crashed player into USB you will get all kinds of errors.

I gave the iPod to my brother and he managed to fix everything and install Rockbox which works properly now, except for one thing.

After I transfer music onto my iPod, I don't see it in Rockbox, as if it just disappears. When I mount it again, the music is not there.
