Subject description: The MP3 player I tried is Teclast x19 2G version.
 

I bought a new Teclast x19 MP3 player recently, and I want to install the puppy linux on it. But there is an error when writing the boot information onto it. After this error appears, I can't open the MP3 from the computer any more.

The operation system is Windows XP. And I use the FlashBoot to install Puppy Linux. I use this applications to successfully install the Puppy Linux on another flash disk before but it doesn't work this time.

Does any one encounter this problem? How could I solve it? Or the Puppy Linux can not install on some type of MP3 players?

Thanks!

That's it.

There are a few mentions of attempts at mp3 player installation here in the forum.

Even if you can't make the disk bootable, you could still boot it using a wakepup floppy or some other method (starting from the WinXP bootloader or something), but I guess that kind of defeats the purpose of installing to USB.
