FS#949 - Search

A REALLY nice feature would be the ability to search
for a song on the hard disk by the file name.

Maybe like the mStation car MP3 player, the Archos
could index all the files on the disk (when it has
detected a change in the disk or manually), and write it
to a file somewhere, then unlike the mStation, be able
to search using this file.

When in the search screen, it could sort the sings live,
as you input the text (using up/down to select a letter of
the alphabet & Left/Right to select the letter - then
play/pause to go to the live list below, to select the
appropriate song.

This database file could also be used when you are
browsing the directories (when loaded into RAM, it
wouldn’t have to keep spinning the disk up!)

If it is possible, it would make finding songs on the
Archos so much easier!

I see the new Creative NOMAD Jukebox Zen seems to
have this feature! duct_images_cropped/16406.jpg res.asp

I agree if anything the Archos Jukebox Studio is missing a
way to search for a specific song.
In 20 GB worth of MP3 i think i would be a great feature
