When I added a few more mp3s, I think I wanted to update it or something.
That's where I pressed initialize or update, and ever since it has told me 'Database is not ready'.
Reflashing is only needed when changing the boot loader, and on some platforms is not needed at all.
The first of these ports, beginning in late 2004, was for the Cold Fire-powered devices manufactured by iriver, focusing on the H1xx series of hard drive players (H110/H120/H140).
By now I have looked over the internet, read that manual 10000s of times and rebuilt the datbase lots of times, no avail.
