Typemake to build the pbdance program
For the initial setup, type:

Run the pbdance program from the current directory, by typing:
You will now need to use either empload or jempeg program to download music to the player.
Special note to empeg owners: The easiest way to initially setup up pbdance is to copy all the files from your empeg's /drive0/fids directory into /mirror/drive0/fids and run the rebuild program. When you restart pbdance, all of your empeg music should be available in pbdance.
When you have finished downloading music, exit and restart the pbdance program. All downloaded music should be available for playing.Back to top
