Or if you don't want to fool with any additional software, at the command
line,

dir /b/s |sort >foo.m3u

Recurses through all the directories from where you are on down, creating a
list of fully qualified file names, sorts them and writes them to a file, here
named foo.m3u. That's all you need for a playlist. You can optionally edit
out the drive letter but that's not necessary - rockbox ignores the drive
designator.

I have a Studio 10 dedicated to background music in my restaurant. I have a
batch file containing the above. I want everything on the unit to play
randomly. Each time I add more music to the drive I just run the bat file to
reconstitute the playlist.

PS: Rockbox has been running for over 6 weeks now without a reboot. Good job
guys.
