I have a 15 song playlist which can sometimes load up
and immediately display the message "end of list press
on" or on the other hand can play as expected. The
same goes for my 3000 song playlist....it can play
perfectly for 3 songs before displaying that message of
250.

In my opinion the playlist handling barr these quirks has
sold the Rockbox firmware to me. By far the best
implemented feature.

Please fix this one...I'm a user who only uses playlists
since the Rockbox firmware was released.

Thanks!

Alan

I am using a Studio 20 Jukebox

The messages means Rockbox can't find the files listed in your
playlist. Open your playlist in a text editor and examine the path
names.

I had this problem with the firmware too - not immediately but
after a while of playing. It appeared to be most persistent
when I had a playlist on shuffle, and when I was using the
remote to skip through tracks.

Given the playlist was created using the Archos firmware & I
haven't removed any files, I'm confident that all the tracks
exist.

Don't be confident - verify! Archos supports playlist paths with
gunk prefixed to the real path. We don't.

Verifying is really simple. Just open the file in any text editor
and look at the pathname of the failing tracks.

FWIW, I've received this message when subjecting the player
to shock(on my motorcycle, in the tankbag)on a recent trip. It
happened quite often until I relocated it inside the bag. I never
received the error when the player is not prone to shaking.
BTW, the paths to the files are all correct.
Just curious if anyone has their player in an environment
prone to shaking or shocks?
