Database on NW-HD5 is updated (at least, partially) on the PC. If the process went only on NW-HD5 itself, it would take ages to rescan all music - even just to read first sector of each track.
|My X is not in front of me, but you can clearly see in the manual (which you could have searched for) how you can navigate on p. 42:
Sony eSupport - NWZ-X1061FBSMP - Model Home
AFAIK all NWZ models are working as MTP, not as MSC?
I've asked about MSC players (NW-X). So, i will repeat my questions:
Is there tags navigation available?
Do you need to run "database rebuild" manually?
How long does it takes to rebuild database?
|The A818 certainly does, whereas the A808 didn't
Isn't A818 a MTP player? Then database rebuilding also occurs on PC (or on the player while uploading music, not after), it is just transparent to you. What you see in "My computer" when connecting a MTP player is not a real filesystem tructure of the player; it is possible that the player even doesn't have a filesystem. MTP is just a set of interfaces like "read file", "write music file", and when you're writing a file, internal database is updated. It is like SS, but instead of SS that is Windows.
