Talking FYI: RockboxUtil 3.6 + Gigabeat F40 = Musical Bliss

Proud new owner of a carefully used, near mint Gigabeat F40 reporting in.

An amazingly simple experience.

- Charged the device;
- Plugged into PC;
- XP SP2 instantly recognizes as MSC device;
- Zero driver/software installation;
- Full Drag/Drop under Win Explorer;
- Rockbox 3.6 installed without a hitch;
- Rockbox running flawlessly on the device.

Entire process? Less than 20 minutes, including theme installation.

A really terrific sounding device this GigabeatF40. Solidly built with great fit and finish and accessories. The amp section seems very powerful - RB shows I am using my IEMs at around -35db volume. Though a bit large and heavy for me, the F40 will only see in home/local outdoor use when I am stationary.

And Rockbox continues to amaze, making good hardware great...

Thanks so much again TDS and and the entire RB contingent...
