Sandisk Sansa m260: 2.2.5A: Multiple Listings Of Each Track

Hardware:  Sandisk Sansa m260

Software:    2.2.5A

 

Hi;

 

When I copy files over ( from a PC runnning Ubuntu 10.10 ) to my Sansa m260 each track is listed multiple times.  When I look at the contents with my file explorer on my PC I see only one copy of each track.   

 

I tried deleting all files and starting over again on a fresh battery.  No luck

 

Any idea what this is about and what I can do about it?

 

Thanks in advnace

 

Steve

Fixed. I don't know how, but I thought I would post what I did in case someone in the future has the same problem.

 

1. I went to Settings | USB I chose "Auto"

2. I turned the player off and connected it to my computer

3. I looked at the player under Nautilus ( the equivalent of File Explorer for Windows ) with "view hidden files" enabled

4. I deleted miscellaneous files in some hidden directories, leaving the directory structure intact

5. I disconnected the player from my computer

6. I turned on my player, switched to MSC mode ( see step 1 ), turned it off and connected it to my computer

7. I repeated steps 3,4,5

8. I connected the player to my computer, the player shut off. I then copied one set of files over No duplicate files anymore.
