Can you set that 30-second time higher, say to like 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes?

no, unfortunately. BUT, it has the bookmarking function that lets you go back to where u're in the file, even after you listened to other songs. This is one feature that the Iriver 7xx lacked. The 7xx only has the "resume" function that remembers where you are when u shut off the player, but it won't let you do that if you have played another file. That's why I'm switching to Iaudio 5. You can set "bookmarks" for 20 different files.
Yeah the iPod Shuffle for sure is the best for skipping through a track. I don't have a Shuffle but the 5G has the exact same operation system loaded on it... it's awesome for non-properly formatted audiobooks.
