Hi you wrote:
I appreciate that the software for the iriver H300 series is still being
developed, but I have some questions. I have been through the FAQs on the
website, so
apologies if I have missed the answers.

* I'm glad you pointed that out. Many people have jumped right into the H
series for rokcbox. We should all remember that it is still under
development and will likely contain bugs.

1. I belong to a discussion list in the UK where users have spoken about
using Rockbox on their H300 series models. However, I believe all the users
have
the H340 rather than the H320. I know the firmware is supposed to be the
same, but has Rockbox been tested on the H320?
*As far as I know, yes. Both units are the same except for the HD size.

2. Following on from the previous question, the users all talk about how
great it is to be able to navigate through the artists and albums. However,
I have
unpredictable results if I try to find an album which is nowhere near the
one I am listening to. I have a foolproof navigation method when using
Iriver:

While playing:
Press <Navi>
Press <Left> twice to move up the tree to the artists
Press <up> or <down> a number of times to get to a different artist
Press <Navi> to select the artist
Press <Right> to go into the first album for the artist
Press <Navi> to play.

This works fine if I am not moving very far through the list but, as I have
already said, the results are unpredictable in most cases. Is there a
different way of
navigation? I should say that I have named the files so they are sorted in
the way I want them to be.
*You could always press stopp then the AB button to get to the root of your
file foders then use the same navigation keys to browse. Have you selected
the sort files in alphabetical oreder on your settings?

I have not, as yet, created any voice clips, although I intend to do so.

*That should help as spelling can be confusing.

3. At present I cannot boot into Rockbox as it says "Invalid or Corrupt
Playlist" or something like that (I am afraid I cannot read the screen). I
have taken off
some files and defragmented the drive. Do you have any other suggestions.
I can still boot into Iriver.
*Have you downloaded and patched the correct version for your player? Check
the wikie manual on the getting started/installing rockbox page.

4. Is there any documentation on setting bookmarks and creatingvoice clips.

*You can set bookmarks from the while playing screen or, change bookmarking
from the settings menu. Bookmark on stop, etc, etc. Note that rockbox has
a resume feature which is great for audio books.the

Apologies if this sounds as though I am complaining. I am not, I think
Rockbox is great, and I lookforward to having a stable system.
*doesn't sound like your complaining to me dude.

hth...rocker

I hope someone will be able to answer some of my questions or point me in
the right direction.

Good luck to all the developers and thanks for everything you are doing.
