that option writes all the options to a .cfg file. you could make one yourself in notepad, if you
really wanted to. after you pick the filename you want it gets created in /.rockbox

so you have all the chapters of each book in their own directory, and when the first directory
ends, you want it to automatically start the second dir? one option would be to add the next
directory to the end of the current playlist, by going to the dir browser (on) and selecting the
next directory with up/down, then using the on+play (hold on, and press play) menu, and go to
playlist>insert. you should then get a message that says 'adding ## files to playlist' that counts
up until it's added them all.

or you could just make a playlist with all the files and use the 'follow playlist' and 'resume'
options.
