    I've tried re-adding the songs twice now and every time it deletes a BUNCH of the songs. The only place I've noticed this was with Cascada. I have about 40 songs of hers that I tried to add and when I disconnect the phone from my computer and view the Music list, it only has 3, the same 3 every time. I'm putting the files on my SD card in MP3 > Cascada in their separate album folders. It keeps the folders and AlbumArt.jpg files but deletes the songs! Why is it doing this?

    The phone automatically formats the SD card when I unplug it, that's what the notification at the top says at least.

    It's not actually formatting the card when you pull it out/put it in, otherwise, it would be emptied each time. It's just reading the contents of the card.

    Ok, but that still doesn't explain why I'm losing songs.
