Well, I must have asked nicely becaused someone send me the file
unsolicited. It works well. Thank you everyone for your help.

| I have an Archos Studio 6000 "Jukebox 5.08/Rockbox 2.0". May I remind you
| all that this model doesn't have a recording facility.
| In the past few days, I've been fiddling with my Jukebox in the hope of
| finding a way of resuming long files.
| I've tried bookmarking without success due to my own ignorance:
| *Was I supposed to put the Bookmarking-20 files in the root directory (but
| what was I expected to do with the ajbrec.ajz file? the player needs a
| file, not an .ajz one!)
| *Or was I supposed to kick out the archos.mod file supplied by Rockbox and
| to replace it with the ajbrec.ajz supplied in the talkbox zip file and
| rename it archos.mod (that seemed too bold to me, I'm always afraid that
| machine will lock up on me!)
| So, I reluctantly removed the bookmark files and turned to the Talkbox
| I first used the Talkbox-5.7.2003-aj-studio.mod and then the
| Talkbox-5.15.2003-aj-studio.mod files. There again, it didn't seem to do
| much difference and with regret, I removed these files too. I am under the
| impression that the Talkbox project is not suited for the Studio 6000
| because it doesn't have a recording facility.
| And now I've discovered that Rockbox 2.0 did provide a bookmark facility
| the time: I navigate the menu while listening to a book, find the
| "archos.mod" file and do a quick press on it: the LCD reads "Rolo"
| "descramble" and now my Archos will resume where it was at that precise
| moment each time I turn it on again. It's not perfect (I wish it would do
| this without my intervention and I hope that someone will come with the
| answer) but still, it's pretty cool and extremely valuable for
| This is where I stand at the moment. I hope I was not too long and that it
| makes some sense, and above all that it will help people who, like me,
| it sometimes confusing to install all that exciting software. It's a pity
| that all this good work is sometimes wasted because the information is not
| always clear to the average person.
| Thanks to all for reading me so far and keep the good work,
