Hi Jamie,

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try them when I can run Rockbox on
my player again (I'm trying to figure out whether my battery has
died, so want to use only the original firmware to keep things
simple). And yes, it would be great if pressing Stop, or Long Play,
on a file took you to that place in the file browser if Follow
Playlist is on. But if entering the file browser and then stopping
playback works, the problem is far less significant than I
thought. Thanks so much for your help.

cheers,
Anna
