Subject: Resume from deleted files
From: rockbox (rockbox_at_scout-family.org)
Date: 2003-04-12


All:
    I am using the Resume feature and it works fine, with 1 problem. The
question is this a bug worth filing a report on or is this just the way
its going to work?

I have an Archos JB Player 6000, firmware 5.05, Rockbox 2003-04-10.
Resume feature is set to Ask (which it does). Since I have a Player, I
record FM Radio using a D-Link FM thingy, not the Archos. So, donít be
mislead by that.

I have a directory with files
2003-04-08_Radio_A.mp3
2003-04-08_Radio_B.mp3
2003-04-08_Radio_C.mp3

I shut the Player off at the 67 minute mark (out of 124 minutes) on
2003-04-09_ Radio_C.mp3 (the 3rd file in the directory).

I plug the Player into my PC. Delete files *_Radio_A and *_Radio_C, And
copy files:
2003-04-09_Radio_A.mp3
2003-04-09_Radio_B.mp3, and
2003-04-09_Radio_C.mp3 into the Archos directory.

The directory listing now reads:
2003-04-08_Radio_C.mp3
2003-04-09_Radio_A.mp3
2003-04-09_Radio_B.mp3
2003-04-09_Radio_C.mp3

When I restart the Player and Resume playback, it goes to (approximately)
the 67 minute mark of 2003-04-09_Radio_B.mp3 (now the 3rd file in the
directory).

As far as I can tell, the Player uses the position of the MP3 file in the
directory to select which file to resume. Can the feature get altered to
key off the actual filename? I assume the Ask/Yes options of the feature
would check if the file still exists before attempting to Resume. If
there is a whole playlist (never used Resume with a playlist), I assume
the playlist would just go to the next non-deleted file in the playlist.

BTW, when I plug the Archos into the PC, I canít find a resume file in the
.rockbox directory. How is the position to resume saved?

Thanks
