I currently have my iPod set so that when I start up Rockbox, it automatically resumes whatever I had it playing when I shut it down (by holding the Play/Pause button). However, when the iPod starts up again, the current playlist (not an actual playlist, it's the dynamic playlist I think) has only 60-70 songs in it, whereas it had about ~400 songs when I shut it down.
It's not urgent because I can always stop the playback, go into the Database and reselect all the songs, and then it works fine for the rest of the time the iPod is on for.
I think it might be because Rockbox caches a list of the next ~60 songs or so it's going to play, then only reloads that list (instead of all the songs) into the dynamic playlist or something? Just an idea :)

Many thanks,

This task depends upon

Another thought - I still have my music files in the ipod/iPod_Control/Music/F*/*.mp3 format from using gtkpod and the original firmware. It could possibly be only loading one of the F* folders, probably whichever folder the file that was playing in was in at the time of shutdown. Hope that makes sense! :)

Ach! I realised what this is. It's not to do with the resuming, though I only noticed it when I was doing so - it's when I was deleting a song - after the 'song deleted' screen shows, you get back to a list of files - and clicking on a file will only play the files from that folder in a new playlist, instead of clicking menu, which will continue with the current playlist. Anyways, sorry about that :) Feel free to close.
