iPod (4G) with SMS?
I've been using SMS with my Flash Drive (Kingston Data Traveller 4GB) and have been having great success with it. I recently "inherited" an old 40GB iPod, and decided it'd be easier to play videos off of that instead of my flash drive (since I can keep a lot more videos on there at once). The iPod is formatted in FAT32, and uLE recognizes it and can launch the SMS.ELF file off of it. However, once I get into SMS and activate the USB driver, it cannot read the iPod properly. All the folders show up as text file entries with improper names (foreign characters or a single letter), and the files do not show up at all. Any idea as to what I could be doing wrong? Thank you.
You are using the usbd.irx ???

delete usbd.irx (make a Backup First), and let that SMS use the embedded usb driver.
SMS looks for USBD.IRX in:
Other Option is to Disable " USB AUTO START" from the SMS Menu Option, and start Manualy when you need it.
Unfortunately I've tried that as well. I was originally using it with the embedded and that didn't work, so I tried the original USBD.IRX, and that didn't work either.
So why don't you use ule's?
You can get it from fmcb's package.
Just tried that, no luck. Still give me a bunch of text files with scrambled names.
Edit: Oddly enough, my iPod will work with the USB version of SNES station, which would not recognize my USB stick that SMS works with. Is there just no real standard for compatibility with USB devices? Is it possible that my iPod 4G just won't work with SMS?
Edit2: Another interesting note. My 6G (iPod Classic) works fine. Anyone have any idea why this could be happening? Is it a sign of something wrong with my other iPod, or could it just be incompatible with the USB drivers they use for SMS?
