Thanks, not sure exactly what you mean by on+play.

On then play or on and play at the same time or on being like a shift key
then play.
Any how, none of those combinations seemed to accomplish what I was
expecting: making the total number of playlist entries on the WPS screen =
the total number of mp3's in the directory tree.
Recursively was on btw.

I created a playlist and it got all the files and if I play that it seems
to work ok.
Be nice if a song was removed from the playlist after it played so It can't
be played twice before all of them are played.
