Having a bit of an issue. Have a 128G SD card which had around 12,000 mp3s which I had sync'd over from JRiver MediaCenter on Bootcamp on a MacBook Pro. Been using it for playback in the car on shuffle for the whole library on the DX50.
The other day the tracks disappeared from the DX50 library, and although the machine went through the motions of rescanning, it didn't pick up anything to put in the library when it was done, although I was able to explore for the files, but not play them.
I've since changed laptops and decided to switch back to Mediamonkey. So I decided to sync almost the same set of files onto the newly reformatted card and tried scanning again. It went through the motions of scanning, but didn't put any tracks into the library.
Not one to fear, I had a 200G SanDisk SD waiting in the wings, and attempted it again. Still no luck recognising the tracks. I've been reading a lot of the fixes thrown about for scanning issues and have tried a number of things, using a smaller set of tracks (just 12).
I have attempted the following:
Updated to the latest firmware.
Reformatted the card to FAT32.
Reduced the length of the filenames to 30 characters in MP3Tag.
Removed any non-alphanumeric characters from the filenames and tags.
And have tried rescanning at each stage with no success. And still can't play the tunes.
So, I installed Rockbox using these instructions. And Rockbox installed fine and recognises and plays the tracks. (So appears to not be a hardware issue on the player or the card front.)
Problem fixed? Not really. Because the DX50 is used just as much by my wife as me, perhaps more. And she doesn't have the patience to mess around with Rockbox given the sensitive user interface, just brushing the screen puts you in a directory you don't want to be and she isn't very techy.
So anything else I can try on the DX50 using the DX50 firmware to get it to work correctly?
