Talkbox doesn't have any Bookmarking functionality beyond what is
in Rockbox 2.0. If you want to use it with a
a non-recording device, then you need to create the thumbnail
mp3s on your computer (Using your favorite Sound Recorder and mp3
encoder), and then put them in the appropriate folder
with the filename ".dirname.mp3"
