Hello, all
There's a problem with viewing files in some circumstances in iPod 5.5G last 3.9 release.

When I:
playing something in /Music/Artist/Track.flac,
pause playback,
connect USB cable.
rename /Music/Artist to /Music/ArtistSOMETHING, then disconnect USB cable

I just cannot turn playback on ("~Do not exist" or something message appears, it's OK, I know),
when I trying to enter in "Files" menu - there's no reaction at all. Just nothing. I can't play of any other existing track or change to any directory without restarting device, or:

just go to Playlists -> VIew catalog -> select some playlist, then some music appears. But it's too long imho.

Is "it" bug or not?.. :)

sorry for my english,
This task depends upon

Can you check if dircache is enabled (should be under settings), and then try again without it and see if the same thing happens? Would be interesting to know if its a bug in the dircache code.

I can confirm this with r31152 on my 5G iPod with dircache disabled. The problem is that the file view fails because the directory it tries to display is missing. Connecting USB again and renaming the directory to its former name makes file view work again.

I believe this is a general rockbox error. I am having the same problem on my iClassic 6G. I could be wrong but this doesnt seem device specific.
I am running dev build cdb71c7-130430.
