Title: sansa c240 problems
Post by: styleslowe on June 17, 2009, 05:18:21 PM
Running windows xp I have a sansa c240 I've run the bootloader and rockbox utility in MSC mode also added the extras. then when I go to unplug and reboot sansa I get rockbox logo blinking non stop. when I hold down the center button I get nothing and when I hold down the left button I get my original firmware. Whats wrong with rockbox?

What does "blinking non stop" exactly mean? Also, please be more exact with terms. Rockbox Utility is a PC application and won't run on your player. If you copied its binary to the player (which you can of course do), installed the bootloader and the extras you definitely missed installing the main Rockbox build. But I guess you haven't put the Rockbox Utility binary on your player but meant you installed Rockbox.

okay when I start rockbox on my sansa the rockbox logo is blinking. don't know how to explain any better. I ran the complete installation and also the minimal still can't get rockbox to start.

If you hold down the "Right" button is there text? If so, what does it say?

Where is the file rockbox.mi4 located on your player, exactly?

Connect it to your computer (via USB) and search for that file.  If it's not located at /.rockbox/rockbox.mi4 then the bootloader has a legitimate gripe.

(This is pretty basic computer usage, I think.)

note: You should still be able to boot the SanDisk firmware for USB mode even if you only installed the bootloader so far.
