No, it doesn't. He specifically asked if it had "true" folder navigation that doesn't require a database rebuild. It does have folder navigation, but every time the microSDHC card is moved, changed, or looked-at funny, the Fuze requires a "refresh" (rebuilding the database). This flaw makes it disapointing for some, and frankly rather unusable for some situations (considering the long delays when using large cards)

Read the posts again.....dennisqwilson was asking about true folder navigation with Rockbox firmware, not the regular firmware. yelped's answer was talking about Rockbox, not the stock firmware.

If there's one feature of the OF that Rockbox doesn't do easily its the ability to play a 'folder': specifically a folder with subfolders (ie: a folder "Beatles" with subfolders of several albums, there's no 'play all' selection at the 'Beatles' folder level like the OF). I know you can do it by creating a playlist, but that's too much effort just to listen to a few albuims.

You probably have "auto change directory" set to "No". Set it to yes and it will recursively play folders like you would expect:
Alternatively you can just hold down select and queue folders if you don't want this to happen automatically.

The comment "Alternatively you can just hold down select and queue folders if you don't want this to happen automatically." confuses me... there's no 'queue' do you mean "add to playlist"? I see no way to queue up a directory on a 'long select' only cut, copy etc of course I'm no expert on RB

Because the firmware is designed and written for millions of people using their devices in many, many different ways. They didn't just write it with you in mind, you know.
And your 2nd question? . . .

I daresay there are a great many of us who desire navigation by folder, with no reliance on any "database" and its attendant penalties. At least give us the option to switch.

And I am one of those who would prefer folder navigation even if there would be no database at all in a player. By the way, this was the reason I bought iAudio U5 player which has no database at all with one of firmwares. But Rockbox can make of Fuze a much better player.
