Most likely you have put your music to the Ipod using Itunes. Itunes
stores the files in a hidden folder names /iTunes_Control. You can
simply enable the database and use that for browsing the music, the
database is capable of detecting the hidden files. Alternatively you
can sync the music to the player using drag and drop from your
favourite file manager. It will then show up in the file browser.
Additionally, you can change the file browser to show hidden files,
but as Itunes changes the file names to cryptic names I bet this won't
be of much help.

The manual explains all issues you asked about ...

sure, if you haven't played any file before there is nothing to resume.

And *please* follow our mailing list etiquette and do not post
fullquotes to this list. It has been discussed several times and
fullquotes are simply not wanted here. Thanks.
