After reading the post by 7100simpleisbetter, I gave the format, reload and pray method. Unfortunately no success. In my experience, the artists of A through L (or so) fully load, and then just one album for artists M through W loads (in the case where an artist has more than one album), and even then some artists are missed. Y does not load and all and there are no Z artists. In other words, I continue to have the problem. I have recoded each track, and even reduced the tag data to ONLY artist, album, track and track number, deleting ALL other tag data including album art. No luck.
I now use FlipSide for mp3 playing. This is a great program that is still progressing along. I wish that it has avrcp support and the album art did not take up so much of the resources, but it will work for now.
To be frank, I am surprised that there is not more of an outcry from the BB community about this problem. I use an 8130 (ver. 4.3) with an 8GB card. In my experience, the device simply cannot handle 1800 or so tracks and I do not understand why. It must be a memory or number of tracks limitation, but why RIM would allow 8GB (and more) cards without upping the track allowance is beyond me. I am hoping that it gets corrected soon.
