These files are safe for use on any Empeg/Rio Car Mk2/Mk2a players with any size of hard drive(s) installed. Use of these files is required for correct operation with any drives larger than 132GB. Never not use a kernel older than Hijack v464 with such drives!!


Any chance of a big disk builder for mk1 players (and a version 2 software installer with hyjack if needed, but that's only for >132 right?) for the new 100gb disk i bought to replace the 40gb?

If there are other limitations for a mk1 then i can still try it with a extra 60gb that's in my laptop now.

Nevermind,

It looks like i got it working by partitioning and formatting manually:

Cool. There's no reason why those instructions won't work on the mk1, but I've never tried. I only have a mk2 and a mk2a. I'm glad that it's worked fine for your mk1.

I just have to bump this thread. Brings me back to 2004 with my 80gb drive on MK1.

Glad you got your hd built!
