I could trigger it very easily. Of course it doesn't happen when
you skip to next track, listen first, then fast-forward. The
problem arises when you know beforehand that you want to
fast-forward after skip.

I agree that button combos aren't really intuitive either.
This folder skip method introduces the new concept of button
I don't see the need for this sequence on iriver, since there
is a plain button combo available for folder skip
(Play+Left/Right) and even assigned, so on iriver there are
now 2 ways to invoke folder skip. Otoh, the feature isn't
implemented for archos, where the On+Left/Right combos are
taken so a sequence would be the only option...

You can't do Play+Left/Right one-handed? ;-) It's possible, I
tried it, though a bit cumbersome...
