Hi Paul you wrote:
I am having problems with an interaqction between bookmarks and fast forward
/ rewind on the iriver 320, and wonder if it is a bug.
I mostly use my iriver 320 to listen to audio books, some of which are large
MP3 files of up to 100 MB per track I am using the version of rockbox dated
October 2006.
The problem is that fast rewind and fast forward do not work properly after
I have restored a bookmark. Pressing either fast forward or fast rewind
seems to take me to a point close to the start of the track. This problem
only seems to happen when the restored bookmark points to a location well
into the track (i.e. 200 or more minutes from the start of the track). If I
restore a bookmark close to the start of a track then fast forward and fast
rewind work OK. If I start at the beginning of a track and press fast
forward to say 200 minutes into the track and then play the track normally
for a bitg and then try fast forward and fast rewind then fast forward and
fast rewind work OK (suggesting that the length of the track is not in
itself a problem). they only fail to work after restoring a bookmark which
points to a location well into the track.
Can anyone caste any light on why this is happening and what I can do to
avoid it. The only corrective action I can think of is to use Goldwaave to
split a 100 MB track into several smaller tracks.
Many thanks for your help.

*I too have experienced this phenomenon on my IHP-140. I hnote that it only
occurs on some large tracks. Example: I have two tracks of the same title.
converted at the same time with only track 1 showing this problem. I
suspect it's not a rockbox issue for the reason that it does not occur on
every track. Something is likely messed up during the conversion process.
.AA files have some kind of file marking system inbedded in them which
probably carries over during the conversion process.
