Hi, Glenn.
                You said.
        BTW, I teach computer usage, and have built 2 complete computers,
and have
installed nearly all versions of windows countless times, so these basic
questions will not help.

        I disagree. I've found from my own experience in troubleshooting and
training, as well as in working on my own systems, that it is just the
person who has the most experience who will often go wrong on obvious
points. This process is working here, as well as for several other people on
V2s and FMRs. There has to be something specifically wrong on your unit,
since you're using the same firmware that other FMR and V2 units are using
without trouble. This is either improper installation of the firmware
(doubtful since your menus are talking, incorrect build installed or
flashed, bad settings/usage, which I would still check again, or a bad MP3
        BTW, there is one point where your settings might have gone bad
without your knowledge. The manual says
        Rockbox does not spin up the
disk solely for the purpose of saving settings, but instead will do it when
it spins up
the disk the next time, for example when refilling the MP3 buffer or
through the file browser. This is important to realize, as if you change a
config setting
and then immediately shut your unit down, the new config is not saved.
        The bad MP3 can be excluded by running one directory with known-good
TBX. Were I you, I'd try removing one of the TBXs, then using the script
that Brian released
        to create a TBX for one specific directory. Try it then.
        Good luck.

Two questions.
First, if you rename one of the TBX files to an MP3 file, and try
playing them with Winamp or another media player for the PC, do you hear

Yes, as I made the files myself with AT&T Crystal, and it did once work, and
I personally renamed them from MP3.

Secondly, are you sure you have the voice directories setting in
main menu/general settings/voice set to "while hovering"?

And Yes, as it did once work for me, so I understand the menus.
BTW, I teach computer usage, and have built 2 complete computers, and have
installed nearly all versions of windows countless times, so these basic
questions will not help.
And thanks Aman for responding.
