Problem viewing music on phone in ovisuite

[ Edited ]

I dont usualy use Ovi Suite for music management as I re-encoded all my mp3 files to a lower bitrate but keep the full size ones in the Windows Music directory.

 

But I deleted a playlist on my phone by mistake and wanted to recreate it so connected my phone and it started to read it

 

BUT I pressed the wrong button before it finished and now in Ovi Suite it shows that my phone has 3000+ files all of Unknown artist (guess I stopped it after it read the filenames but not the properties).

 

I tried refreshing (on the phone and Ovi Suite) , disconecting, reconnecting and it does nothing.

 

How can I get it to reread all the files again form scratch.

 

All the properties are there and still on the files but I guess since the files timestamp is not changing it does not reread the file data.

 

If I can find something that will change all file timestamps I will give that a go

Re: Problem viewing music on phone in ovisuite

I used mp3tag to select all the files on the phone and save them and that worked.

 

But it took time to resave the files and to refresh the library in Ovi so it would still be helpful if I knew where Ovi or the phone stored the info to make it easier if it happens again.
