well i’ve tried 101 times to get this refresh database under control to no avail. I’ve tired no folder hiararchy, and no convert upon transfer within wmp11. The latter gave me trouble on my wm5 phone when files weren’t being converted correctly (or didn’t need to be). Similarly, there are a few tracks I have in cbr mp3 @128 that for some reason or another wmp11 thought they needed to be converted to wma before sync. Anyway, I took those out of the equation, synched my top rated playlist to the clip (all 3,4,or 5 star music I have cataloged in wmp11), but it still freezes after disconnect in update library. If I transfer only a few songs fine, but when I fill up the device (less a frew hundred megs), it happens.
I know that all my music has ID3 tags for artist, title and album. Whether or not they are v2 or v1 is an ardous task to undertake and I think a definite flaw in the design of this thing if that is what causes the freeze-up that I’m experiencing.
I’ve spent a lot of time troubleshooting this player because I like it, but I’m through with this one. I’m taking back to BB for an exchange and if the 2nd one does the same thing, I’m done. Plenty of other players I’ve had play nicely with my system so for this one to be so finicky is unacceptable. Back to the phone on my armband if need be I guess.
