Now I see your point. You want to change settings by editing a file instead
of using the menu because you can do that with a text reader on your PC.
My first suggestion would be to place the cfg-file in the root directory
with a special file name that makes sure it is the first or last file in the
directory listing (like zzsettings.cfg for example). It should be possible
to navigate to that file without feedback. Activate it by simply playing it.
Sure, it would be nicer if it was loaded automatically, but better than
nothing.
If you want to have audible feedback for that action (to make sure you found
the right file) you could put a second cfg-file with slightly different
sound settings next to it (like zz1setting.cfg and zz2setting.cfg where
zz2setting.cfg is the same as zz1setting except for different volume
setting). While playing music, navigate to the one you don't want to have,
play it (if you're at the right place you'll hear the difference instantly,
but be careful to not blow your ears), than go one up or down and play the
right one.

Just an idea...
