Re: How to exclude certain folder in the Music Player?

i am not using a memory card, and clearing the app data doesn't work either.

I tried plugging it to PC and added some new music with media go trying to trigger the library update, but it didn't work either.

a related question, when i tried to enable Auto Connect in MSC mode, windows detected it as Xperia Sola, just like it did in MTP mode, is this normal? or do i have to insert an sd card to use it in MSC?

....Oh, hmm, never tried it on the internal memory.

afaik, you need to have the sd card to be used as the mass storage,

Re: How to exclude certain folder in the Music Player?

well, thats too bad... so i'll have to live with a dead file in my music library, WTH Sony?? i think i'll have to find a way to move all my media files to a memory card once i bought one, and hopefully the dead file won't show up in the library once i do that,

then again, even with a memory card, having to re-insert memory card to refresh the library is ridiculous, even my decade old symbian phone has the option to refresh the library... hope they can get this fixed in a near update...  is there anyway to raise this issue to someone in Sony??

Re: How to exclude certain folder in the Music Player?

pictures and videos was ok, the files are gone from the Gallery when i delete the file, although they seems to ignore the .nomedia

but in case of music files, seems like i had to re-create the file with the same name at the same location, then delete the file again from the Music Player to remove it from the library, again, there should be an 're-scan' option to add new files and remove dead files from the library. Even better if they can give us an option to only scan a certain folder.

Thanks, will PM one of them.

Re: How to exclude certain folder in the Music Player?

to re-scan the media on your xperia:

On your phone, go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> Media Storage. Now hit ‘Clear Data’. This should clear all the cached library information on your phone. (I have a hunch that if you re-write id3 tags without changing the file name, the phone probably won’t refresh the library). It takes time to re-scan all the media on your device.
