    After installing 2.1v2, all my music became disorganized. My albums are all out of whack and the album art sometimes becomes assigned to the wrong song. I'm pretty sure this isn't a problem with my files because everything worked nicely on 1.5. Is anyone else experiencing this bug? Any fixes?

    I noticed the same thing, so its not just you. I'm running a rooted rom so i didn't know if it was that or 2.1 in general, looks like its the fault of 2.1.

    It seems to be a bug with the music player.. I have my album art embedded into all my files and worked perfectly before the 2.1 updates.

    I haven't run into any bugs with the music player. I had to reassign album art, but that was because many songs didn't have it to begin with.

    I would first try just restarting the phone and see if it fixes it. I would then try unmounting the SD card and putting it back in (sort of a reset for the card). Then I would try pulling all music off the phone and letting the phone clear its memory on the music player (possibly unmounting the card again) and then try putting the music back on and see if that fixes it. Last I would use Album Art grabber and/or iTag to put things back to normal.

    I've tried all but the last step. Instead, i tried downloading a different music player. Same issues. I'm now sure that it's an OS bug.

    My album art showes up on every other app, mp3 player and on my other old phones I have laying around. Its not a huge deal but its a annoying knowing I have the art embedded and still wont display. I'm just wonder if it a size issue like 250x250pixels or 500x500(which all my album art is).

    I've got all my album art back i just ran album art grabber and let it do its thing. But what i'm noticing is the mp3 player is splitting up albums into smaller albums and not keeping them intact. I may just wipe the music and resync with doubletwist then rerun album art grabber and see if that fixes it. Right now its not too bad but when i want to listen to an album that is fragmented thats when i'll start to get annoyed.

    The fragmentation is the biggest problem overal. Reply here ASAP after the DoubleTwist thing. Hopefully that works.

    Guess i have yet another reason to wait for the OTA

    I'm not having any issues with the music player on 2.1 v2. All my art shows on the correct songs. No album splitting etc. Looks identical to 1.5. Not tryin to brag or anything, just surprised it seems to be happening to everyone else.

    This bug is still really frustrating. I thought that maybe, just maybe, root would be the solution. It wasn't. I still have this bug. It's just a 2.1 thing I guess. :\

    But are there any fixes yet? Did Double Twist work?

    I use the music player 3, (aka cube i think). At first my album artwork was all mixed up. However by long pressing on each album it automatically finds the correct artwork and stays put after that. No problems since. Hope this helps.

    Thanks. That'll work for the album art but got anything for the album fragmentation?
