HI Andrew,

I tried both your suggestions. In both cases, pressing Select entered
the file browser and spoke the name of the currently playing track,
but when I then pressed Stop, I was taken to the main menu, focused
on Files. So the Resume feature seems to have no bearing on this, and
my iPod appears to be behaving differently than your iRiver.

Cheers,
Anna
