Subject: Re: Playlist problem
From: Paul Suade (paul.suade_at_laposte.net)
Date: 2002-07-31


in FAT32 directory sectors, we can find entries for "." and "..". And since
FAT32 has a root directory in a cluster chain instead of a reserved sector
(FAT12/16). There are chance for "." and ".." being there.

So what happens ? ".." of the root should point on itself and then
"../../Tom_Waits/Blue_Valentines/02-Red_Shoes_By_The_Drugstore.mp3" should
have been read as :
"/Tom_Waits/Blue_Valentines/02-Red_Shoes_By_The_Drugstore.mp3".
