Title: Automatically sync Date & Time on connection to computer.
Post by: BlindWanderer on June 17, 2009, 05:50:03 AM
I have a Sansa c240 and it keeps track of the date and time, it's very handy but it would be nice to be able to sync the time to my computer when I plug it in. For this purpose I propose a Yes/No option "Sync Date/Time on computer connection"

In windows we already get that pesky "You got a new divice, where is the driver for it" box. Why not write a drive that can give it the time if the player asks for it?

You shouldn't be getting such a message anymore with current builds of Rockbox, and no driver should be necessary.

You should be updating *before* you report an issue.

Some might consider your remark rude. The issue you mention is a triviality and not important to the feature suggestion, the feature suggestion can exist without.

It may be a triviality, but it's required by the forum guidelines. So, it was actually rather rude of you to not have bothered in the first place.

Since your suggestion included the idea of writing a driver for it, it was at least somewhat relevant. For example, many people make suggestions for features that already exist, and since it was clear you'd made a feature request without trying the latest version, you needed to know that the guideline existed.

I'd suggest reading the forum guidelines, as you agreed to do when registering, before posting again. Now that you're aware of them, future breaches of them will be considered knowingly ignoring them.
