Re: Memory Card Problem

Music Library File might get corrupted if you are swapping between two cards or taking out card from card slot with out going through whole process (file manager>memory card>options>remove mem card>closing applications>remove mem card and press OK)  solution is simple, whenever problem appears just open music player and refresh music library.

Re: Memory Card Problem

1. Connect your 5800 to you PC in Mass Storage Mode
2. On your PC you will need to have allowed to “Show” hidden files, do this from Explorer/Tools/ Folder Options/ View and select “Show hidden files and Folder”
3. Open your SD memory card/Removable Disk in My Computer on PC
4. Go to E:\ Private there you will see 3 folders 101f8857, 101ffca9 and 10281e17 .
5. Go to Private\101f8857\Cache\E there you will see .dat files. Delete all the .dat file BUT NOT the E Folder. Shown above right
6. Now go to Private\101ffca9 there you will see another .dat file, Delete the dat file NOT the folder.
7. Finally go to Private\10281e17 There you should see 4 files 2 are Mp3 files other are Podcast files. Delete mpxv2_2.db & mpxv2_2.db-journal for Mp3 files list and Delete pcv6_1.db & pcv6_1.db-journal for Podcast files list. Shown above right
8. Close all windows and disconnect your Phone. Go to Music Library and it should automatically start a refresh.

Re: Memory Card Problem

I got the similar problem with 'Scaper', But Im Using A Nokia 5530.

I tried the solution 'ChanChan05' Suggested... But It doesn't work for my 5530

when I disconnected my phone from the PC and I went to Music Library.. It Does Scan my phone for music files (Searching for music and podcasts) but it already scan for a very long period.

Before I did the solution to my 5530, I transferred some music to my 5530 and I keep on refresh my library but it took for a very long period ; I thought it maybe could work if it take longer period so I refresh it before I went to bed at night then the next day I woke up, I look on to my 5530... It still scanning [refreshing... 0 file(s) added]

 

Please!!! Could anyone help me as soon as possible...:smileysad:

Re: Memory Card Problem

"mpxv2_2.db & mpxv2_2.db-journal for Mp3 files list "

"pcv6_1.db & pcv6_1.db-journal for Podcast files list"

You didn't downloaded any podcast? thats why.

Re: Memory Card Problem

cellfone do not store any data in memory card exept creating backup files.  the back up files cannot be viewed exept restoring back to cellfone memory which is not sufficient for any data. 

 

the fone memory is full but the memory card is empty because of fone does not transfer any data to memory card.

It may not be possible to retrieve data from this card and remains to be seen whether you can reformat it for further use.
