Files wont show up on P3!
Hi, I really need help to understand why what's wrong with my P3. I was just browsing through my P3 files, deleting some,and listening to music when it froze and restarted by itself. I have had the P3 for 8 months now, problem free, it had never done this before. When I turned the P3 back on, my file folders were still there, but all the files in the folder weren't showing. I tried resetting it, but that didn't work, all my files still don't show up on the P3 screen. I though everything got deleted, but when i plugged it up to my computer, my files are all there! I don't understand what wrong! Please help me.

Well you could try going to settings then system then library update

Exactly what he said, it sounds like the library database file got corrupted and needs to be rebuilt. Doing as he suggests should do just that.

When this happened to me, a reset fixed it. The player randomly started playing white noise and all of the album arts were the same image of a corrupt image. I turned it on and on again and there was nothing in Artist, Album etc. and all the folders were blank.

that's weird, i don't see a library update button in system.. i do see format though..

all my titles are gone except a few random ones, and when i hook up to the computer i can't see anything; all folders show up as 0kb and all have no name

thatīs maybe because youīre in mtp mode....change it to UMS and connect it again.
then you will see library update in the settings...

disappearing directory tree
Hi all, I have an annoying problem like this. I use my P3 with a mac (10.6) and somehow have managed to mangle up the file system so that when I select the file browser icon on the home screen I just get a screen that says "no file". However, if I select the music icon and then Music Browser I can view the folders with all my music. The files seem to be in their place and I haven't noticed any corrupt ones. My mac sees the whole directory tree as well. Rebuilding the library and resetting the player hasn't made any difference so far. Any ideas?

try to reformat the player...with the players formart function of course...
then look here..macs create those .DS_STORE files...the plyers librabry canīt handle them.... maybe this is the problem...if you have a parllel Windows installed then use this to sync your p3,...itīs better
