I just got my Fuze and am very happy with it; however, I am having a very strange problem with the database. I have a 16gb sdhc card that I am using with the Fuze and there are about 4 songs on the card that will not play and have no tag information loaded. Their tags appear in the tag browser (not the in the track info screen) as just an empty rectangle. Under the track info screen, the sizes are listed as ~4000mb. The songs will not play and I cannot skip past one of these songs once it has been loaded.
At first, I suspected some kind of tag corruption, so I set out tonight to track down the problem. I removed the 16gb card and reset the player. Then, I loaded one of the corrupted songs onto the internal memory of the player. The track was scanned and played correctly. Next, I removed the track from the internal memory and loaded it onto a different sdhc card. Again, everything worked correctly, so I suspected that the card I was using had some kind of filesystem or physical problem. I put the original 16gb sdhc card back into the player and verified that the file was still unplayable, and then I connected the Fuze to my computer. I transfered the unplayable file to my computer, and compared it (with md5sum) to the original file, thinking that if there was filesystem or physical corruption the copy from the card would be corrupted. However, the files were equivalent.
To make things even more interesting, I am also having problems with the genre listing. I have some files tagged with Genres like “Classical” and “Rock”. In the genre listing, I see this:
So there is corruption on the “Classical” genre but not the “Rock” genre. Each of the substrings of “Classical” contains only a few tracks, with most of the other tracks listed where they should be. I have verified that the tracks are tagged correctly and in the exact same way as the other tracks that do not have this problem.
I am at a total loss about what to do, and I would really appreciate any tips or suggestions. I am using the current firmware, 2.03.31a, and the songs in question are Ogg Vorbis format.
