View Full Version : DB corruption again

2005-03-18, 05:51
I've observed this behavior too. In fact my girlfriend wanted to listen to
the Black Eyed Peas the other night and it wouldn't come up with 3/4 of the
B entries under browse--> artist. I finally had to resort to browsing the
music folder to find it. This is via the IR remote control.
