I was playing, in Linux, with the filesystem on my Coby MPC652 and apparently I accidentally overwrote the firmware, which seems to be on the same flash memory as the memory for the mp3s.
Does anyone in the linux world have one of these things?
If so, I'll leave an open invitation for you to send me the first megabyte of the raw /dev/sdX file.
If you were to do it, the command to get it would look something like this:
dd if=/dev/sdc of=mpc652_firmware.bin bs=1M count=1
Where /dev/sdc is the mp3 player.
I would just throw it away, but I'll give the internet a chance to stop some e-waste.
