Hi, list. Is there a way to shuffe and play all of the tracks on my unit, or
can I only play directory by directory?

Subject: Re: Gapless Playback
Hmmm, I recently MP3Gained a load of new rips - my jukebox is full at the
moment so I've not tried them. May I ask a acouple of pre-emptive questions
What preisely will be the result of me attempting to play any of these
files? Maybe a small gap or squeak or a full blown crash?
Is there any sotware available that will strip my APE tags and store them
away so I can put them back later (in case I want to modify the tracks)?
Maybe a special version of MP3Gain which stores a database rather than
embedding the information we require?
Thanks in advance,
