I updated EP a few days ago. Immediately noticed quite an annoying problem that has not occurred with older versions.
When copying playlists to an external drive, the metadata gets copied correctly, but the actual data (i.e. the track file) doesn’t. Which means I end up with a correct ‘playlist’ but once I load the track on the player, a different track comes! It’s so weird. The waveform, title, album etc all are correct, but the file associated with it is a different file, a different track.
This happens in about 10% of cases (4/30 tracks in the smaller playlist), which is really high, and because all the metadata are correct, the only way of verifying whether what I put on my usb stick is correct is to manually go through all the tracks (I have 228 tracks in my longer playlist…). If they are incorrect I have to delete their counterpart (i.e. the track that I actually hear) from the Library, and then re-copy to the thumb drive.
Just imagine going to a gig to discover 1/10th of your tracks is not what you copied. It’s ridiculous.
Also, I don’t want to rebuild the library. A lot of work went into annotating it.
This is just another argument to buy something less cool, but that actually works…
Happy to upload a video if my description is not clear.
I wonder does anyone have any suggestions?
