Default Post-2.59 firmware upgrade weirdness

I have an 8GB D2.

I recently updated the firmware and ever since I've been having issues with track tag info disappearing and what appears to be the same folder name duplicating across all music folders.

All the contents of said music folders appear to have tagless mp3s in - none of them are (allegedly) tagged, which I know isn't the case...

Has anyone experienced similar problems and can advise of a fix?

Thanks in advance.

You have a corrupt database. If your collection is small enough CUT and Paste all your music to the System folder then restart the D2 so that it rebuilds the database and finds no music. Once its done, then Cut and Paste everything back to the music dir, and then restart agian. The database should rebuild correctly. If it is still corrupt, then try agian, but this time move smaller amounts of music into the music dir at a time before you restart it.

Thanks for the tip - will give it a try...

Either that, or re-flash the firmware instead, as this sometimes occurs when the upgrade wasn't 100% successful.

I may try the firmware again - next on my 'to do' list!

Wiping and restoring the music db seemed to do the trick.

The problem looks to be caused by deleting things 'on the go' on my D2 - when I've tried to delete a folder, that seems to trigger the issue.

.m3u files - do these also create problems? I *think* these freak my D2 as well...
