Just some quick thoughts:

All buttons do the same, can't tell them apart when the jukebox is in
your pocket and you're wearing gloves.

1 press = pause on/off
2 presses = next song
3 presses = previous song
4 presses = next disk/directory
5 presses = previous disk/directory

continuous press = decrease volume
1 press + continuous press = increase volume
2 presses + continuous press = lowdness down
3 presses + continuous press = lowdness up

Playing the entire disk should be possible without a playlist
