Thank you Erin. Rockbox is doing all right, even though this is "unstable".
Oh, it has its quirks all right, but I expected things like that because
after all, the RB web site says its not stable.
I did try to install the .talk and voice files when I first loaded things
up, and had no end of problems trying to do that, so I chalked that up the
slip zip being unstable and let it be as it was.
I can't say enough good things about the folks who do the rockbox package,
it is a great product and it has made my life real easy with an enjoyable
I'm not much of a geek, but this product is great.
If anyone on the list has had luck with a clip zip and the .talk or voice
files, I'm very willing to listen how they did it.
Again, thank you for your comments. Have a good evening and enjoy this
weather. I'm in New England, and its unseasonably warm. But I don't have to

The Clip Zip is still listed as being "unstable" with RB, so I was wondering

file.talk clips downloaded and running on a clip zip.
Or, since the clip zip is still listed as an unstable platform, would I be
better of leaving things alone until it rises to the level of being
I don't own a Clip Zip, so I can't speak from experience. From what I was
able to read, the player is doing well. I think there are still some issues
with plugins. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. If you're using Rockbox and
it's working well for you, I don't see why you'd have issues if you decide
to install the voice file and talk files. I can tell you that I used a
Sansa Clip+ as well as the Sansa Fuze when they were listed as unstable
ports, and both worked well for me with voice installed. I don't think it
was a dumb question. Smile emoticon
