'Could not play local file' message
Posted this in another forum, but desperate for help.
Galaxy Note owner, not rooted, did factory reset before upgrading to ICS. Great phone, except for this annoying problem.
I have the Amazon mp3 player and use this to download and play tunes. Annoyingly, and I am not sure what is causing this, but my albums suddenly have all the songs duplicate themselves. So I get double tracks and the first track when you go to play it, says 'could not play local file'..means that I cannot play the album as neither the Amazon nor default player will play / skip songs to the playable one.
I use a 64gb micro sdhc card. I thought the duplication occurs when i back my phone up - it doesn't. It happened just last night, when i switched phone off overnight to charge. Awoke this morning, and all albums had double songs.
Is it the phone? Or the card (but i have previously reformatted the card the last time this happened). When I removed the sd card and placed in PC > windows explorer, there were no 'double tracks'. But somehow, for some reason, the phone allows duplicates to be created.
Any ideas, or am i the first to experience this. Ever so grateful for support / advice received.
