Subject: Re: shuffle for over 400 songs
From: Hardeep Sidhu (hardeeps_at_pobox.com)

Hi Vince,

There are a couple of things you can do:

1. Create a playlist that contains all your MP3s (e.g.
from Main Menu: Create Playlist) and then play that.

2. If you prefer to keep all your MP3s in one
directory, update to the latest daily build and set
General Settings->System->Max files in dir browser to
your preferred size (remember to restart system after
change).

The first option is preferred as the second will
affect the amount of memory available for buffering
tracks to play
(http://rockbox.haxx.se/docs/faq.html#53).
