What I found to work for me was to make sure I had music uploaded on the internal storage.
I initially was uploading all my files to the external (8GB MicroSDHC) only and the player would take forever if at all to go through and load. I thought I had the “Refresh Database” bug as it would stay on that prompt for about 30 minutes than finally kick over.
When I put files into the internal storage (1GB), the player would start playing music within 30 seconds. I use the internal storage for my transient files and the external for my main collection. I have 800 files split, 180 (935MB) in internal and 620 (3.1GB) external.
I copy straight to the device, I could transfer using the WMP11 sync but could never get the player to work after the sync. I’d much rather sync but, I’ll go with what works for me.
I can’t wait to get a new update allowing more than 1000 files to be read.
