Subject: ignoring paths when playingg from playlists
From: Rich (rmarotti_at_thomasaquinas.edu)
Date: 2003-01-04


Forgive me if people have bitched about this already. Playlists generated
by several programs on my computer (MMJB and a few other freeware progs)
include path information eg: c:\music\artist\album\#at.mp3. Archos
firmware doesnt seem to have a problem reading these playlists and
ignoring the path information. Rockbox, however, claims it is loading the
correct number of files but then remains at a screen that is blank except
for battery, volume, and time in their usual positions and does not play
the songs. Deleting the path information from the generated playlists
solves this problem but i have a lot of playlists and i'm not looking
forward to the task and I DEFINITELY don't want to have to use archos
firmware. Am I missing something? Just being plain dumb? Again, sorry
if this is redundant and with the exception of this itty-bitty problem,
rockbox is an incredible piece of software and i applaud all involved.
