    Ok Iam having a problem with PowerAmp where it will only 5 songs and than gives me an error that says Too many failed files playing will stop now.
    Supposedly you can fix this by clearing the media storage and there is a couple of people who have done this. They also said it would not clear your SD storage at all just the cache. But I have also read that it will delete your pictures stored on there. So Iam trying to figure out wheather it will delete the pics on the SD card or not before I do this.

    Also want to know if there is another way to fix this.
    I think I know how this happened I had the trial Poweramp and Full version and Had installed Need fore Speed Shift which I was able to get the songs from the game which is amazing. But than I had to uninstall and reinstall Poweramp when I did is when I started seeing this problem and what makes no sense is that the stock media players is not having this problem.

    I've cleared my media storage to fix the blank icons in the gallery.

    It doesn't delete the pictures, the gallery will re-read and put them back.

    It does wipe out playlists and contact ringtones.

    The music player is media. It will delete the playlist(s).

    If there is I haven't figured it out yet. I've had to rebuild my playlist many times.
