I have a couple of albums in M4A format. Which if I start to play will for example skip the 1st 3 tracks and jump straight to the 4th one.

The server can read all the properties of the file but wont play it.

I am running the lastest 6.2beta2 build and had the same problem with a 6.12 build as well. I have an original slimp3 with FW2.3 and my server is running on XP SP2.

The files all play fine on my iPod or in iTunes.

OK I worked it out it seems to be a file length issue.

For example I like to tag my files as:-

Artist-Album-Track No-Track Title.

On VA compilations it results in file names like this:-

Various_Artists-Nu_Yorica!-01-What_Are_You_Doing_For_The_Rest_Of_Your_Life_-_Ocho.m4a

Which gets skipped, so if I rename to Track No-Track Title they work fine.

Is this a limitation of mov123.exe or is it fixable?
