Mee too I get confused all the time. The hardest thing for me is to
get back to the wps when I'm in the browser. I constantly press the
[NAVI] key which then starts to play the song currently pointing at.
I unterstand this is the same behaviour as the "middle" button on my
JBR1 (called [PLAY]). Following to that, I should press the [PLAY] key
which was formerly the [ON].

Up to here it simply looks like if the button functionality was
swapped to comply the archos button location (middle button still has
the middle button's functionality) against their labeling on the
iriver, which is not nice, but could be legitim.

The problem is, that this swapping cannot be done throughfully: To get
to the file browser while playing musicon the iriver, one does not
have to press the "left upper" button (formerly [ON]) like on the
archos, but the "middle" [NAVI] key, where the labeling is matching
for once.
Pressing the "left upper" [PLAY/PAUSE] of course provoques a pausing.

This is where I think that the current keymapping is not consequent.
