Do your audio book mp3 files have ID3 data? If so, which tags?

Often. I mainly use mine for audio books. Probably 2 a week. Probably 50
files each. I now have to ROLO the archos code to do a directory delete,
either that or hook to the laptop. I'd love to have Rockbox be able to do
recursive deletes like the original code. But please, pretty please don't
buffer keystrokes while the delete is in process!!!!!! Archos does and that
can lead to major wipes.

Similarly, probably 100 files a week.

A little less than half. My music, which comprises about half the data, is
normally pretty static. I blew some off to load Christmas music and will
it back in a couple of weeks. Otherwise the churn is in the audio book
