Do you have aplayer or recorder?
I ask this, because on the player we don't have a left button. We just
have a minus (used as up) and a stop used as left (leave) for navigating
through the menus but as cancel at the menu leaves, which is kind of
confusing for some of us, including myself. After I think that I have
selected an new setting and want to leave this menu, I remark that I've
cancelled my new setting with stop. Usually the second attempt will work
tzhen :-)

I have to admit, if you really want the cancel functionality on the
player, the play button would even be worse for cancelling.
