Ok, I've removed the ID3 tags with id3ed -r and made sure the directory structure is ok.

MUSIC/311/Blue/01 Down.ogg
MUSIC/311/Blue/02 Random.ogg
.
.
.
MUSIC/311/Blue/14 T & P Combo.ogg

I'm going to try to remove the spaces in the filenames now, don't
think that should make a difference.

But, basically Rockbox won't play any of my Ogg files, very strange.
They play perfectly in Ubuntu though.

Do the Ogg files have to have Ogg comments to work properly in
Rockbox?
