Roller Posted December 13, 2018 Share Posted December 13, 2018 I do a clean new install of PA v3 with .apk file from this website and than a full rescan of my music library. When PA finished scanning, there are many empty folders shown with cover art and album title but no music files inside. I filed this bug here: Some MP3 songs seem to disappear from PA (not from phone) After some investigation I found that there are also lots of orphaned music files in PA database displayed as "unknown artist", "unknown title" or "unknown genre". It seems that this files are the missing ones from the empty folders with no music inside. Something went wrong during music scan in PA's folder.db (pointer overflow, null pointer or something else - I don't know...) This behavior only happens with a huge amount of music files (more than 50000 titles). If PA scans a subset of only some thousand files everything is OK. PA v2 never had such problems and works fine for years even with more than 100000 titles. BTW. When PA tries to play an empty music folder it crashed. I have extracted PA's error messages from Android's logcat (attached below). Poweramp.log Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
