Hi, Brian.
You said
One correction to Aman's comments about the mp3clipgen script - it's
not
going to work (AFAIK) if you specify a drive letter as the input. It
must be a folder. The script operates recursively, and folders and
drives are accessed by different methods in vbscript. It *could* be made
to use a drive letter, but it won't as presently coded. So J:\music is
fine, but j:\ is not.

Hmm. That's odd. I can get it to use
j:\

quite easily. It creates a .dirname.tbx file in the root directory
as well, but it certainly works for all the other directories, just as if I
had entered
j:\music
Have you tried this on Windows XP? I've only used it on that system,
and perhaps it interprets Vbscript differently somehow.
Aman

If you just want the folders and files to be identified by a number,
then you need not create any voice clips. You only need a recent daily
build of rockbox and a copy of the voice file for your desired language.
I think that English, French, and German vioce files have been created
by people so far. It is possible to create your own voice file if you're
willing to do a little work. Here's the page with links to the already
made voice files, BTW:

And yes, it does currently show links for deutsch/english/francais.
