Subject: Re: 400 files limit also for directories?

You will run into a problem if you have too many subdirectories. This is due to the fact that Rockbox limits it at 400 files or a certain number of bytes. If your directory totals 100 characters for each directory, you will run out quickly.

Someone correct me if i'm wrong :-)
