        OK, dont' know whether anyone responded to this but please may I
a query.

Whilst my MP3 player (Ipod) is playing a track, I want to go to a
different album. When I press the middle button although the player's
volume is inactive the track still plays and I can only go forward and
bakcwards by pressing the relevant buttons.

If I press the top button I get the main menu spoken and if I hold down the
middle button the the equalisation settings are spoken such as pitch
So my question is this.

Whilst a track/album is playing, how do I select a different album. I have
all voice clips set up but the only way I can see to do this is turn the
player off and back on again when the albums menu comes up.

This is a bit annoying because sometimes I want to play different tracks
from different albums.
Is there a setting I have missed?

Thanks all.

Maurice Press.

Try using h2format - it's freeware, and does a good job:

It runs at the command prompt - "h2format X:" where X is the drive
letter that the disk to be formatted is mounted on.

A lot of people think that button combinations are inconvenient, because
it often involves using both hands. The short-long sequence can be done
with one hand.

Also, I believe that ON+Right/Left actually does directory switching on
the H300, in addition to the short-long sequence.

I don't get it. Why would it be so much more difficult to shut down the
player after charging it than while it is charging? And why even
consider waiting for the idle timeout instead of shutting it down
manually? I'm confused.
