Yes. Something similar happened to me a few days ago. For some reason
(forgot the cause) I had to reset the device. When it rebooted

General Settings -> File View -> Show Files

was set to "ID3 database", but I am perfectly sure, that it was set to
"All" before the reset. BTW: This firmware freezes instantly when
trying to browse the ID3s. So maybe it changed the settings before the
reset for unknown reasons (maybe my fault) and that caused the freeze.

However: If something similar would have happened to you and there is
no ID3 database on your HD the player will show nothing in the
browser, giving you the illusion of an empty drive.

In that case: Just click and hold A-B to check.

Me too, but I really do not know, if updating the firmware resets this
configuration option.
