You have the bootloader installed but it can't find the rockbox install folder. If you install rockbox (not the bootloader) does it start working?

Same. So now I just put it in “apple mode” (just FYI that’s called the OF original firmware) whenever I need to connect it to the pc. There is a USB HID mode which allows for the iPod to send command to the computer like this from a keyboard or mouse. Maybe if you turn it off it’ll connect in rockbox mode? I tried but since I have an iPod 7g and not 6g it might be different

To turn USB HID on or off you will need to do (on the iPod in rockbox)

Home < Settings < General Settings < System < USB HID


I hope this helped.
