Phantom playlists

Hi everybody,

When I first got my Clip, I drag’n’dropped some songs into the \Music folder (in MTP mode). I then created some .PLA playlists by right-clicking and selecting “Create Playlist” (this was available with the original 1.01.18 firmware, but not anymore).

After a while I upgraded to 1.01.29 and then to 1.01.30. Now the playlist files have disappeared and I can’t delete them. The Clip still shows them in the Playlists menu, but they are nowhere to be found in the MTP filesystem.

Is there any way to get rid of them without reformatting?


OK, problem solved. :smiley: I’m not sure why, but I think that adding and deleting some songs in MTP mode forced the Clip to refresh its database. Now the playlists are gone.

It seems there are two databases, one for each mode. Since I was using MSC mode lately, the MTP database wasn’t refreshing.
