It was really hard getting all that data on a 30 gb player- I had to plug the earphone jack to keep the data from from spilling out.
Actually, I remembered the capacity incorrectly- it is a 40gb player. I have done two things that seemed to have corrected the problem. I upgraded the build to v3.3 and went through the album folders and deleted tons of old desktop.ini files and album cover jpegs that I accidentally transported to the Gigabeat when loaded it.
I am thinking to reloading the files (I have done an extensive reedit of the ID3 tags). As of now they are listed by album on my PC. Should I load them into the "album" folder in Rockbox or in the "music" folder. What is the difference?
BTW, Rockbox is an AWESOME utility that has made a good player into an outstanding one. THANKS!
