Default Playback error of album using Rockbox 3.8.1

Not sure if this is a Rockbox 3.8.1 playback error or not. I was re-arranging a couple of albums in the ogg format between being stored on internal and microsdhc storage on my Clip+ today. I tested one that I moved from microsdhc to internal, and when I tried to play it back via .m3u playlist and using folder mode clicking on a sound file, none of the files playback. The screen scrolls through each file, then under the artist and album tag sections of the screen, it says, "(root)." Once it scrolls through each song unsuccessfully, it either returns back to the folder screen. Very strange. So I deleted the album and playlist from my clip+. Then I went to a backup of this album on my pc hard drive. I played back the songs using foobar on my pc, and didn't have any problems. I ran Audiotester on all of the files from this album, and they came back error free. So I copied the backup copy of this album from my hard drive back to the microsdhc on my clip+, copied the .m3u playlist too. Tried to play back the album, and I get the same errors. I'm fairly certain that this album played back okay in the past during a previous version of Rockbox. I usually do a quick test of each album as I add them on to make sure there are no problems with playback. Anyone know what's going on here?

My guess is that the problem is that paths on the internal memory begin with "/" and paths on the external begin with "/microsd1/" and the M3U file is still pointing to the "/microsd1/" location.

The paths are correct for the playlist. Also, when I navigated using the "Files" method to the specific folder of the album using the Rockbox menu system, I get these same errors when clicking on a sound file directly, so it doesn't seem to be limited to .m3u playlist playback. Any other ideas? I was hoping that Saratoga would answer this.

I just started up my Clip+ with the Sansa firmware, and the sound files in question played back okay, so this playback issue does appear to be limited to Rockbox playback. Any other ideas? Thanks for anyone who can help with this.

I reset the database in Rockbox, rebooted with Rockbox, and tried to play this album back via the database -> artist - > album -> play methoad, and I get the same playback errors.

I seemed to have figured it out. I had a problem in the past with some albums of ogg files that had embedded art (for my attempted use with another player). I wiped clean the tags from the files, and re-tagged, this time not embedding album art. Like the problem I had in the past, this solution of re-tagging and not embedding album art fixed the problem. Last time, I totally got rid of the files once the problem was solved. From what I remember, someone, maybe Saratoga, asked to check the files out to try to figure out what was making the playback fail. Last time, I got a Rockbox error code during faulty playback. This time, I didn't during faulty playback. This time, I saved the files in question on my hard drive this time with the embedded art, if anyone with Rockbox development is interested in checking them out.

If you have one that plays in other software but not rockbox because of the tag, post a bug report with a link to it.
