Subject: Re: Resume from deleted files
From: Robert Hak (rhak_at_ramapo.edu)

Don't resume at all. Using the next file just pushes the problem off.
What if there is no next file? What if that file is missing?

If they changed the disk, the current song is no longer valid.

Just my 2 bits

We store the file name, but we only use the path and the index when we
resume. The only question is what to do when the file can't be found.

1) Don't resume at all
2) Try another file
