Hey Keith,

Progress! So you installed a version of Rockbox.

If you drag the bookmarking version of ajbrec.ajz onto the Archos root
directory, you can overwrite the daily-build version you have there.

Before you do that, consider whether the version you already installed might
be good enough. Suppose you shut off Rockbox in the middle of listening to
an MP3. The next time you turn the unit on, wait for it to start up, then
hit the Play button. The file will continue from where you left off.

That is sort of like bookmarking, and it is a feature of the daily build you
already installed.

The only thing it will not do, that bookmarking will do, is save your place
in more than one MP3. So if you are the kind of reader that likes to skip
around and have more than one book open at a time, then you will like the
bookmarking version. The bookmarking version will save your place in
several MP3s. The standard version will save your place only in the MP3 you
were listening to most recently.

For bookmarking, it sounds like you downloaded the right file
( I downloaded that file just a few hours ago, and
there is an fmrecorder directory in it. It appears in the zip window just
two lines above that bookmarks.txt file. In the fmrecorder directory are
two files; one of them is ajbrec.ajz.
