FS#1171 - noticed some MP3's wont play when year in ID3 tag = 0

I have 2 songs from a the same band. One will stop
producing sound after about 15 seconds, and the other
one locks up the archos fm recorder and reboots in
about 10 seconds. If i changed the ID3 tag year data to
read 2000 instead of zero, they play fine, but then if i
change the year data back to 0, it still plays. Then
again, i have other MP3‘s with year set to 0 that play
fine. I think it has something to do with simply opening
the ID3 tag in an editor and resaving it. i have Archos
1.30j for the FM recorder 20 gig. i have daily build CVS
030405 and use RealOne player to change the ID3 info.
i have attached an mp3 that exibits this odd behavior.

I don’t get it. I mentioned that you haven’t attached the
failing MP3 file. You answer me by pointing to the Rockbox
FAQ. Why?

Project Manager


Could you please attach a failing file so I can analyze it?
