i got past the auto-detect thing, but now when I try to do the auto install, it says "don't have disc permission to access, needs this to install bootloader".
WTF is wrong with Rockbox? I thought it was suppose to be easy to install? I've hacked phones and done all kinds of stuff that isn't user friendly, but this is supposed to be. Why the hell wont it work? How do i get "disc permission" on the stupid mp3 player? makes no sense
makes sense. well I'll help you look. Type up something with the steps you went through and where it seems to have ****ed up, and I'll look stuff up in the meantime.
well the main thing that seems to be happening is it won't let me use auto-detect, just instantly freezes and crashes, no matter how many times i installed the program again in case it didn't download right. I set the player to the right mode too.
Then when I just manually selected the drive from the menu that is the player, it says "permission for disc access denies, you need disk access permission to install bootloader on player". No idea what that is or how to do it, or why it works on everyone else's it seems, but not my new comp?

Ok, I've read 7 different things about people having trouble with this player and rockbox, and the most common fix was to format it completely via recovery mode, and try again. If that doesn't work we might at least get some different errors to work with.
