View Full Version : bug or by design? - browse folders

I wonder if someone else can confirm this. It seems that including a period in the directory name (2, in this case), causes a problem in reading the directory structure. I get a "cannot open file" error when trying to play a file (24 bit, 48khz .wav file). If I remove the periods from the directory name, the file plays fine.

Is this by design? I'm still running the 6.1 beta, on Windows, and using "Browse music folders" to find the music.

Thanks,
ashton

Ashton - please upgrade to 6.1.1 proper, and let me know if you still see this problem.

Are the two periods in the directory name at the beginning?

That has special meaning on non-Windows machines.
