The Play button will resume playback of whatever was
previously playing. To choose a new song to play, you need
to use the Select button, not the Play button. Navigate to
the file that you want to play, and then hit Select.
(Alternately, you can hit the right arrow. Either one will
accomplish the same thing in the file browser.)

Note that it may take Rockbox a couple of seconds to buffer
the newly-selected song. Do not hit the Play button during
that time, or you will end up putting the player into pause
