The current build of rockbox for the Sansa e series (I do not know of others) is unable to skip tracks during playback and does not say the name of the next track. Sometimes attempting to skip tracks results in the player locking up. This happens with my Sansa e260 and I have been unable to fix it with a clean reinstall either.
This task depends upon

I happened to have this bug too (not only once). Deleting the *.tcd files in .rockbox/ in order to reinitialize the database helped.

This should be fixed now, please grab a new build and report back.

I did install a newer release, daily build #16441 and it fixed the problem. So I installed the current release #16445 and it still worked with the added ascetics that come with current releases. Thank you for fixing this guys. I don't like to bitch as I know you guys work hard and I LOVE having your firmware it opens up the features the Sansa should have original came with. You guys are really good so thank you for fixing this problem I will close this now thank you.
