Rockbox and iriver have different deffinitions of queue.
I miss the one-button queue that the original iriver
firmware had- all my friends agree that it is a great
feature due to its simplicity and that it was fast.
Currently the record button does nothing when in the
file tree mode -perhaps it could be assigned a one-push
queing function or else assigned a user configurable
macro function

In the original firmware when you queue a song, the
rest of the songs in that folder would be played after
as well. In rockbox there doesn't seem to be a way to
add multiple tracks from a folder to a playlist unless
you insert the entire folder (which will play from
start to end in alphabetical order), or add multiple
tracks individually. Maybe an option could be added to
the existing list of playlist options for tracks

With the original firmware, I generally set it to
repeat directory, so it will play the same album
continuously. Then when I queue a song from the middle
of another album, that album will play continuously.
Ok, so I might not listen to each full album, just a
few songs from it in consecutive order, and then
another few songs from another abum in consecutive order.
This task depends upon

I second this. Using the Record button to "Queue" a file would be well recieved. I'll take a look at adding the functionality and sending in a patch.

I think this behaviour is emulated using play next option in the playlist menu
