I, too, used an SP250, and the only thing I miss about it is its ability
to do ten-CD resume. Take a look at this URL for a description of a
bookmark patch to Rockbox.
I believe it'll do all you want in terms of bookmarks (no "study
mode", which I think you're talking about on the Volt.
I believe it's already compiled for the recorders, from what the
author says on the page, but am not sure whether this includes the FM
recorder you have.

Another lurker here. My use is similar to Aman's - 90% audio books, 10%
music. I bought my Archos FM recorder specifically because of the
existence of RockBox. If not for RockBox it would have been a PJB.
This is perhaps the best freeware I've ever used and certainly the best
My major wish list is to have a facility similar to but better than the
RIO Volt SP-250 that I moved from. With that unit, when in "lesson"
mode, the STOP key rewinds 10 seconds per push (pause with the PLAY
button and then STOP to actually stop) and it has 10 bookmarks
(resumes). The latter let me remove an audio book disc and listen to
some music, then resume the book later. I'd like to see the bookmark
facility expanded so that there is no numerical limit and so that the
bookmarks are stored to disc by name. I'd love to be able to have more
than one audio book underway at a time and to be able to move back and
forth between them and music. Don't know if this is practical or not but
it IS a wish list.
Again, thanks a million for the superb "product".
