I don't know what you mean. How many files and directories are there in
the root catalog? You might have to raise the limit:

Main menu->General settings->System->Limits->Max files in dir browser.

Main menu->Info->Rockbox Info.

Create a playlist: Menu->Playlist Options->Create playlist. Play it in
shuffle mode.
