Subject: Iriver: Inconsistent way to WPS

Iriver: Inconsistent way to WPS

there is an inconsistency in the way you reach the WPS screen from other menus.

- When I'm browsing files (while playing a file) and want to return to
the WPS screen,
I press PLAY. Stop doesn't do anything.
- When I'm viewing the current playlist, I need to press STOP.
Pressing PLAY is functionsless here.
- After using A-B to get into the quick menu/normal menu, STOP and A/B
get me back to the WPS.
Play doesn't do anything.

So when I use the Iriver on my bicycle and the volume control is not working,
I need to either stop and look at the display or have to press PLAY and STOP
until the music stops and then PLAY to restart it.

That's why I suggest that either STOP or PLAY should get you to the WPS screen
in *any* situation. This way it's possible to reach the WPS screen
without looking at the display.

AFAIK the file browser is the only place, where a STOP doesn't get you
back to the WPS,
so getting STOP to return to the WPS screen might be easier.
Personally I think that
the PLAY button should be the one to get to the WPS, but I could get
used to using
the STOP button as well.

What do you think?
