Subject: questions from new recorderv2 user
From: Ted Matsumura (tedm_at_tedm.com)
I am a new recorder v2 user, this is the one sold by amazon, no fm, no
multimedia, 20gb, and uses built in battery, not AAs.
I've loaded rockbox-2.1-recorderv2.zip and have read the manual (2.1). Most
things work great, and I love the speed and improvements over the default
factory firmware. Note that I have only loaded the ajbrec.ajz file in the
root. I have not flashed the firmware, which is currently the archos 1.40
Some questions I have are:
1) is that FM radio comes up in the menus, but this model has no FM radio,
not a problem, but it goes to a blank screen that seems semi locked up.
2) I cannot get either the dynamic or create a playlist from the root to
index properly. I have about 10 subdirs with band names, and under them
album names, under them .mp3 songs (vbr). When I try to create a playlist
from the root dir, it reads the mp3s in the root, then within about 10
seconds stops playing of the current song. Eventually it builds a root.m3u
playlist of the 10 songs in the root, but does not recognize the files in
the recursed subdirs (setting is on).
Those are the major issues right now, of course shuffle setting is on,
basically looking for a way to shuffle through the whole disk without
putting all the mp3 files in a single directory.
