I’ve got an old Sandisk Sansa e280r. Just broke it out for the first time in a while. I deleted all songs on there loaded 4 gigs of mp3s on it. All songs are tagged with album, artists, title… When I started it up though, it refreshed the database as normal, but only 10% of the songs showed up. I went back and verified that the songs were in fact on the player, and they are.
Note, I did all the transfering of music using Windows Explorer and put all songs in the hidden Music folder as normal.
Why would songs not show up? Are there rules related to number of characters in a file name or tag? Are there certain characters in a file name or tag that aren’t supported?
