FS#5046 - playlist access error and navigation failure on iaudio X5

I installed the 31/03 build of rockbox on my 30Gb X5 and was massively impressed. Proper filesystem navigation, ability to delete files, navigation by ID3/Ogg tags. Absolutely great.

However my 10Gb of music (ogg/mp3/flac) was fairly badly tagged because I’ve never had to use them. So I deleted the whole collection off the X5. On my desktop I went through everything with easyTag to make it all better organized. Copied the whole lot back to the X5.

After telling tagCache to force an update I realized that it wasn’t deleting the old tags. So I manually deleted all the .tgc files out of .rockbox and started again. At this point the tagCache was all good.

Next time I turn on the X5 it refuses to navigate. Refused to go below Artist/Genre/Album on ID3 nav. Refused to go below top level on filesystem nav.

So I deleted rockbox.iaudio and .rockbox and reinstalled fresh rockbox (including firmware loader). Same navigation problem. Updated to later build of rockbox (02/04 I think) same problem. Re-installed Cowan firmware everything works.

Ran chkdisk and defrag on the drive to make sure it’s not a hardware problem. No errors reported. I’ll give it a few days and try again with a later build of rockbox.

Any ideas about what is going on? Did I do something stupid when deleting the tagCache?

Closed on reporter\'s request due to problems to repeat it. Open a new in case you DO find a way!

Sorry forgot to mention when I made the original report. At the time the navigation problem started I also started seeing ‘error accessing playlist control file’ when rockbox started up. This problem wasn’t solved by re-installing rockbox and manually creating playlist_control didn’t help either.

I’ve been installing from a Fedora Core 4 linux box.

Disk checks and defrags were done from Windows XP SP2

still doing the exact same thing with the firmware. Right next I’m going to try doing the update from the XP box in case the Linux USB/vfat support is doing something screwy

updating from windows XP shows the same behaviour as well.

Could there be some remenent of the original rockbox install that I’m not getting rid of? Surely re-installing the bootloader, and deleteing .rockbox and rockbox.iaudio should be enough?

Right, after re-booting the iaudio a couple of times and adding the playlist_control file by hand the X5 appears to be behaving itself.
Something is obviously not right somewhere but I can’t track it down.

Feel free to close this bug.
