Thanks for letting me know, first, that it wasn’t something I was doing wrong, and second, that help is coming. I look forward to the fix.
The audio book files I get (Overdrive Media Console files) are intended to be about the length of an audio CD – up to 80 min long. If I get 50 minutes into a chapter on my commute to work, I can’t sit in the parking lot another 20-30 minutes to finish it. So I’ll have to jot down the time, I guess. Even so, it takes a lot of fast forwarding to get to 50 minutes, and god forbid I hit the wrong button before noticing the stopping point time, or lose the paper I wrote it on, or whatever.
Any add-ons to the Clip’s software to help deal with this would be really appreciated! Best would be the ability to store and return to the point where we left off in a long file. Another option would be a way for the user to manually place a bookmark in the file (e.g., by holding the Pause button for 5 seconds). Another helpful thing would be if the Clip could read the “Media Markers” that are already placed in the Overdrive files – these are about 15 minutes apart, which is an improvement over 80 min.
I know this is asking a lot in an inexpensive player. Do your higher-end players have this capability? If so, which ones?
The next firmware release should address this issue. The fix we did had a “hole” with some very long content. Its about a month away.
