[Edit] Ah, talked too soon. Although media player can see, and catalogues, the tracks it won’t play them, ‘Invalid Parameter’ or something. Apparently some issue with the the translation of the file name. So I’m now looking at the Coding4Fun project and I’ve just installed the Mobile SDK so I’ll see how that goes.
[Edit] Hurray, using the PocketMusic player seemed to do the trick. Not sure it’s a replacement for dedicated media machine but it’s certainly small and quiet, good qualities in a music streamer…plus it’s it own remote…although I’m now eyeing up using the Mac’s front-row remote control via the PDA infrared port. For something that is supposed to save me time it seems to be creating project upon project!
