    Had anyone experienced the following issue?
    For some reason, Android (HTC == DevPhone 1 with Android 1.6
    installed, 16 Gb SD card) is not indexing mp3 files.
    After I first mounted Android USB on my PC and put some p3 files to a folder on SD card, Android indexed some files, but not all. I tried different things, and finally deleted all the albums trough Android UI. As I see after connecting through USB to my computer, actual mp3 files are still sitting on SD card. Then, no matter what I do (delete files, add them back, move to a different location), Android does not index mp3 files any more, leaving Albums/Songs/Artists empty.
    Funny thing, I installed Astro File Manager ASTRO File Manager v1.4.1 Application for Android | Tools; it sees mp3 files on a SD card and, while clicking on them, launching Music Player. But these files stays un-indexed thus invisible through a normal Music Player interface.

    What could prevent Android from indexing mp3 files? Some wrong attributes of those files?

    I'm pretty sure tags are correct - Creative Zen MP3 player works fine with them, they are also displayed in applications like Creative Centrale or Mp3tag application.
    For some reason, Android phone is not indexing mp3 files, though.
