Question Media Player in v.4.5.0.138 not as stable?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm on Verizon and just updated from v.4.5.077 to v.4.5.0.138 and noticed that after upgrading not only the OS but the card from 8GB to 16GB, that it took three battery pulls for the unit to fully finish scanning all 3092 songs on the 16GB card (14.2GB worth of files). Media player did not display all the songs on the card at first. I don't know if it's this OS version or the amount of songs that threw it off but I vaguely remember someone complaining awhile back that .138 had some media player issues with large amounts of files. Apparently every folder has a BBThumbs.dat file and maybe this is what it needs to be added to the media player's list? I can always see all files/songs if I EXPLORE the folder but not always with the media player itself until I did the three battery pulls which led to rescanning. Anyone else experience this?

Sorry...that's not correct. You need to have v.4.5.0.81 or higher for 16GB to be recognized. I'm currently using a 16GB card and it reads everything fine now but it took three attempts for it to scan all the files for the media player to work. All files worked outside of the media player (via Explore) from the start.

I formatted the card via the 8330 yes. It wouldn't recognize it formatting via the PC. I never used BBDM/Rhapsody. I transferred 92 files from the PC via the USB cable to the 8330 as a Mass Storage Device. To make it a bit faster (maybe not) I removed the card, put it in an SD adaptor and placed the card directly in the PC and transferred the remaining 3000 files (took 30 min.). I never really saw any advantage to using the BBDM/Rhapsody when I could just copy and paste to the card directly.

Actually, does anyone know what the advantages are to using DM/Rhapsody? I never installed it. I just copy files across via the USB cable to the phone or put the card straight into the PC and copy music/photos as needed.

Just curious.

Using mass storage mode (as you've done) is the easiest way I think. I had Roxio as my media manager for BBDM and it was a very cumbersome program to use. Deleted it and installed BBDM without it and never really had a use for it. I think the main thing it can do is to help convert your video files into mp4 format. But you could easily get a dedicated converter and do that if you really need it.
