Same old story - indexing MP3 from itunes

If I understand corrrectly, once I use Media Synch to download new songs or Podcasts from iTunes i have to remove my battery or perhaps even my storage card to get the 8310 to reindex . This is so infuriating. such poor software design. At worst force us to click an Icon to index, but not this stupid approach.My contract with AT+T is up soon, I will evaluate other phones.

Re: Same old story - indexing MP3 from itunes

Hi and welcome to the forums!

If you can't get them to reindex try removing the BBTHUMBS.DAT file in the directory.

I do it via PC, then use media manager to look at all the songs, which rebuilds the .DAT file


"SDR 246328 If you delete songs in your iTunes library from an artist, and synchronize your playlists (with the
Automatically fill free space check box selected) again, there is a bbthumbs.dat file in an orphaned artist
Impact: These types of files should be deleted.
Workaround: None.
