- If you want to have Rockbox create a playlist of a whole folder (to play an entire album, for example), use the File Browser to select the song. When a single song is selected from the File Browser, Rockbox will automatically create a playlist with all songs in the current folder. However, if you want to play only a single file and then stop, stop playback, navigate to the file you want to play, and use the Insert function on this menu.
For step-by-step instructions on creating, editing and saving an on-the-fly playlist, see this page of iriver playlist instructions.
Deletes the current file. Rockbox will ask for confirmation before deleting a file. Press PLAY to confirm deletion or any other key to cancel.
Rockbox does not utilize the recycling bin. Files and folders that are deleted are permanently deleted. Use these functions with caution.
Runs a viewer plugin on the file. Normally the filetype of a file is detected and the appropriate plugin is run automatically when you press play on it. Use this menu if for some reason you want to override the default action and select a viewer by hand. See page ViewerPlugin for more details on viewers. For example, this would be used to run the VBRfix plugin to recreate the Xing header for an MP3 file, which can fix problems such as fast-forward and rewind not working correctly on a particular MP3 file or the play time of a track being listed incorrectly.
Makes a new folder in the current folder on the disk.
