my xperia blocks when i insert many mp3 files on the 128 MB sdcard

hi,

 

i have a 128 MB micro sdcard (lexar).

I store on it 80MB (13000 songs) of mp3 music files.

Once i run any application which check (or need)  the sdcard (like music, media, file manager), the system seem frozen.

 

it is like there is a process which's trying to check/access all of them, but it is long, long, long and froze

 

what can i do ?

reformat the SD card and try again, also, you could test a different SD card.

Re: my xperia blocks when i insert many mp3 files on the 128 MB sdcard

i already did that before.

the filesystem (fat) is Ok, i format it on the tablet, and make the file copy from my PC to the sdcard via USB key adapter.

 

my sdcard is ok.

 

so, i delete a lot of the mp3 and keep only a part (2000 files now) and it works.

 

it seem the application of SONY have  a limit in the quantity of songs...

i'm pretty sure the little developer of sony application forgot to extend the array data type (like forecast 4096,8000 boundaries..).

Tomorrow i will add 7000 files to find out the limit...

Re: my xperia blocks when i insert many mp3 files on the 128 MB sdcard

yes there was a main folder then a massive list of subfolders, something like :

 

-root card

--| mikemusic

------|mood1

----------|folder1

----------|folder2

----------|folder3  .... to folder 256 and more

------|mood2

----------|folder1

----------|folder2

----------|folder3  .... to folder 256 and more

------|mood3  to mood10  folder type

 

 

 

more than 800 folders on 4 levels (root - mikemusic - mood folder - artist folder  then the files in each one)

 

sure there can be a path string longer than 256 caractères because songs and artists name can have a very long name
