There is a quick way to get to the WPS, and it has been the same since the beginning of the iPod port, and it is no different now: press Play.


I'm very confused. When I start the iPod, playback begins because I have Resume on Startup turned on. However, if I press Play for two seconds, I am in the main menu, not in the folder where the file I am playing is. You say that pressing Play takes you to the WPS. I tried pressing Play; playback stopped. I pressed it again and playback resumed. When I held down Play for two seconds, playback stopped and I was still in the main menu, not the folder containing the file I was playing. So maybe I'm asking the wrong question. Is there a quick way to move focus to the folder containing the file I am playing? If I want to know the name of the currently playing file or play some other file in the same folder, it doesn't seem like I should have to choose Files, then the correct folder or series of folders to get to the place where the file I am playing is. I hope this makes sense, and thanks for all the help.


* I think this is the trouble I have been having.
If Rockbox was going to behave like the problems I have been having, I think I would dump it.
The problem is with my iPod video, 3-19 build, is in trying to get to a file from the file list.
I must have resume on start-up on, and in the old menus, it worked fine, but now, it seems to prevent me from going into "files" and moving to a file, and simply pressing the "play" button.
I mean, I can get to the file, but when I press play, I get some old bookmark.
I'll try resetting everything, and "start over" with the menu options.
