I was recently renaming some of the music files on my Sansa Clip+ MP3 player using my computer. Some of the renames were as simple as changing the case of some of the letters in the filename, from uppercase to lowercase. After I disconnected my device, I noticed that there were duplicates of certain entries in the database. Upon further investigation, I realized that all of the entries that were duplicated were the files that the names of which I had renamed by changing the case of the letters. After I discovered this, I tried to rename a file in this manner using the device. When I tried to save the file with the new name, the screen showed a box that read "Rename Failed."
Apparently, at least for Sansa Clip+, RockBox has a problem with renaming files by changing the case of the letters. Let me know if any other RockBox devices have this problem as well.
This task depends upon

I forgot to mention that you can get around this by moving the files off the device and onto the computer, disconnecting the device, renaming the files on the computer, reconnecting the device, and then moving the renamed files back onto the device.

File code changes after the last release allow simply changing the case of a filename on the device. As for what the database is up to, I cannot comment.
