There are two third party ROMs that will pause the directory listing at each 
full page, RGBDOS and HDBDOS. If you replace your Disk Basic ROM with one of 
these, you will get much better directory listings.

So, are you using an emulator or a real Coco? RGBDOS for real hardware is no 
longer sold but Cloud-9 sells HDBDOS. If you are using an emulator, it is easy 
to install RGBDOS or HDBDOS.
