  • Where is the media database stored? (how can one start on a "fresh")

    I have loaded some songs in frodoplayer, and discovered that there was some errors in the id3 tags. I corrected these, uploaded the new files to the car pc, and have tried to get frodo to accept these new id3 tags.

    But it seems like frodo ensists on using the old id3 tags, I have deleted the files, scanned the for changes (sync'ing), put the files in again, sync'ing again, and the files are STILL listed with wrong id3 tags.

    I then tried to delete the files, move the files to a new directory, but.. STILL the old id3 tags are used?

    The tags that I have changed is the Genre, which I changed from misc, to Rock.. I have tripple checked the files, and the genre tags are set to Rock. (both id3v1 and id3v2 tags)

    If I now want to try to start on a FRESH media database, how can I delete the old one? (Where is it located?)

    Regards

    Does this for me as well. Maddening.

    Oh, and don't actually delete the database. Frodoplayer doesn't 'create' a new on if it doesn't find the old one. It just refuses to start up.

      Back up and delete this file medialib.ldb then go to setting and build a new one.

      Thanatos.

        How do you do that? When frodo is going the file is in use and won't delete, when it's not it gives you a bad database error and closes on startup. I think I'm still using the next-to-last version though, maybe it's different...

          Note I said LDB file not MDB !

            I feel stupid right now but as far as I can tell there is no medialib.ldb file when frodoplayer is closed. There's one when it's open, and it's removed on close.
