-\subsection{\label{ref:manage_settings}Manage settings}
-This submenu deals with loading and saving settings.
-\opt{MASCODEC}{This submenu also allows you to load or save different
-firmware versions.}
- \begin{description}
- \item [Browse .cfg Files: ]Opens the file browser in the
- \fname{/.rockbox} directory and displays all \fname{.cfg} (configuration) files.
- Selecting a \fname{.cfg} file will cause Rockbox to load the settings
- contained in that file. Pressing \ButtonLeft\ will exit back to the menu.
- See the \setting{Write .cfg files} option on the \setting{Manage Settings} menu for
- details of how to save and edit a configuration file.
- %
- \item [Browse Firmwares: ]This displays a list of firmware file in
- the \fname{/.rockbox} system directory. %
- \opt{SWCODEC}{\fixme{This is legacy item, and is depreciated.}}
- \opt{MASCODEC}{%
- \opt{recorder,recorderv2fm}{Firmware files have an extension of \fname{.ajz}. }%
- \opt{player,ondio}{Firmware files have an extension of \fname{.mod}. }%
- Playing a firmware file loads it into memory. Thus, it is possible to
- run the original Archos firmware or a different version of Rockbox
- from here assuming that you have the right files installed on your
- disk. There is no need for any other file or directory to be installed
- to use this option; the firmware is resident in that one file.
- }
- \item [Reset Settings: ]This wipes the saved settings in the \dap\ and
- resets all settings to their default values.
- \opt{h100, h300}{\note{You can also reset all settings to their default
- values by turning off the \dap\, turning it back on, and pressing
- the \ButtonRec button immediately after the \dap\ turns on.}
- }
- \item [Write .cfg file: ]This option writes a Rockbox configuration file
- to your \daps\ hard disk. The configuration file has the \fname{.cfg}
- extension and is used to store all of the user settings that are described
- throughout this manual.
- A configuration file may reside anywhere on the hard disk. Multiple
- configuration files are permitted. So, for example, you could have
- a \fname{car.cfg} file for the settings that you use while playing your
- jukebox in your car, and a \fname{headphones.cfg} file to store the
- settings that you use while listening to your \dap\ through headphones.
- The Rockbox configuration file is a plain text file, so once you use the
- \setting{Write .cfg file} option to create the file, you can edit the file
- on your computer using any text editor program. See
- \reference{ref:config_file_options} for available settings. Configuration
- files use the following formatting rules:
- %
- \begin{enumerate}
- \item Each setting must be on a separate line.
- \item Each line has the format ``setting: value''.
- \item Values must be within the ranges specified in this manual for each
- setting.
- \item Lines starting with \# are ignored. This lets you write comments
- into your configuration files.
- \end{enumerate}
- Configuration files may be loaded using the \setting{Browse .cfg files}
- option on the \setting{Manage Settings} menu.
- \note{Configuration files do not need to contain all of the Rockbox
- options. You can create configuration files that change only certain
- settings. So, for example, supppose you typically use the \dap at one
- volume in the car, and another when using headphones. Further,
- suppose you like to use an inverse LCD when you're in the car, and
- a regular LCD setting when you're using headphones. You could create
- configuration files that control only the volume and LCD settings.
- Create a few different files with different settings, give each file
- a different name (such as \fname{car.cfg}, \fname{headphones.cfg},
- etc.), and you can then use the \setting{Browse .cfg files} option
- to quickly change settings.}
