Yes it is a direction to explore for the player, but for the recorder I think (which has these Functions Buton F1,F2 and F3) it could
be a good direction to use the F2 and F3 like the "PageUp/ PageDown" button of PC-keyboard , is'n it ?
And there is also a problem by the solution you proposed, in my case I've some directory that
contains 114 files named as 001.mp3 .... 114.mp3.

But in all cases I think it is a "must-have" feature to help user to browse directory with contains a lots of file (>100 )

Another thing for all people:
I've test the last cvs version which display the ID3 tag in the WPS screen, and display the length as MM:SS.
In my case I've some mp3 files that are audio conference (it could reach 2h30mn !)
And I get some crazy info like -243:25 !! or 15:14 for a file of 90mn !!

So it s possible that we need to change the type of the variable legth for a "bigger" type (if the actually type is not big enough).

PS: Happy holliday Bjorn and Daniel (I see and the web that you are on holliday)
