Funky issue with Music & HR20 (mystery phantom songs)
Posted 23 February 2007 - 10:17 AM
Where is the HR20 pulling the extra two songs? My other computer (iMac) on the network was off. For the life of me I cannot figure out where the extra songs are coming from.
Other details, when I select one of the mystery songs via the HR20 it does not play. It simply skips to the next song (one in my dropbox). Last piece of important detail, the mystery songs were at one time on my laptop. I deleted them several weeks ago. I have done a plethora of RBR since I've deleted the songs. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled WMP11. Somehow the HR20 thinks the deleted songs are still there.
It seems like there's an old registry/directory or something retaining the old song details.
I'm not a computer guru, does it seem like it's a HR20 issue or a WinXP issue?

Most likely it's a WMP11 issue. Can you see the songs still listed with WMP11? I have had songs that were cataloged with WMP11 and removed manually show up in the song list. WMP11 likes to be to one to delete songs so it is gone from the song list. The interface is atrocious IMHO. WMP11 will list a song as available as soon as you play it from any location not just your default folder. I think you can rescan the available songs and the ones not there "phantom" will be gone. BEWARE, this can and will screw up your albums etc. I did this and had Wingspan spread over 5 different albums for no reason.
Great points! I'll check it out.
